Wine of the Week - by Peg San Fellippo

Get Maximus fruit flavor from 2004 Bennett Lane

The Wine: Bennett Lane 2004 Maximus Red Feasting Wine, Napa Valley

Price: $35

Drinking It: If you like big reds with a lot of concentrated fruit, Maximus is a good choice. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, it has aromas of blueberries, raspberry jam, carmelized sugar, and tobacco with flavors of chocolate and dark ripe cherries witha long soft finish. This wine is drinking well now and can be aged through 2010.

Pairing It: Blue cheese - either Maytag or Roaring 40's, grilled eggplant, paella, lamb shanks, or grilled flank steak.
