Product Notes:
French for 'joy', La Joie emphasizes Cabernet Sauvignon and represents a Pauillac-style wine. The wine is deep purple in color, spicy and intense in the nose, with density and structure from its Cabernet Sauvignon dominance.

A blend comprised primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon, La Joie expresses the richness and depth of a Pauillac-style wine. This wine begins with a blackberry color and a slightly spicy nose that possesses a note of smoke. Although La Joie?s velvet texture is soft, it is powerful Cabernet Sauvignon fruit defines this wine. Intense black fruit flavor is complemented by hints of espresso and grilled herbs. Merlot adds a vibrant red berry character that enhances the full-bodied profile of this wine. Soft hints of vanilla are present in the impressive finish.



Food Pairing:
Cabernet goes well with beef, lamb and goose. It also does well with brie, cheddar cheese and chocolate

About Varietal:
Merlot is a traditional Bordeaux wine varietal. It is traditionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to soften up the tannins, and provide a more drinkable wine in its youth. Common flavors in Merlot are blackberry, black cherry, plum, currant, clove, mint, cedar, and violet. This wine has become very popular due to its complexity and drinkability at a young age.

Recipe:
CABERNET-BRAISED SHORT RIBS
Prep time: 20 minutes / Cook time: 3 hours
Ingredients:
3 to 4 pounds bone-in beef short ribs (4 large short ribs)
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound small parsnips, peeled and cut into chunks
4 medium carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
1 medium onion, peeled and cubed
1 garlic bulb, peeled and sectioned
1 tablespoon flour
1 (750 ml.) bottle Mario Perelli-Minetti California Cabernet Sauvignon
1 (14 + -oz.) can reduced sodium beef broth
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

Directions:
Season short ribs with salt and pepper. Working in batches in a large pot, cook in oil on medium-high heat until well browned. Remove from pot and set aside. Add parsnips, carrots, onion and garlic; cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute more. Add wine, broth and Dijon to pot, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon. Return short ribs to the pot. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer over low heat, covered but with the lid cracked, for 2 hours. Remove cover and simmer over medium-high heat for 30 minutes. Season to taste with thyme, salt and pepper. Serve over soft polenta or mashed potatoes. Makes 4 servings. *May substitute turkey sausage.
Pairing Suggestion: The main cue in food and wine pairing is the type of sauce or spice used on each dish, so pair these hearty short ribs with the same Cabernet Sauvignon used in the sauce.
