Wine

The wine business lost a good ’un when Peter Lehmann passed away last year, but his tasty, nicely priced Australian stalwarts live on. The Peter Lehmann Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon ($17) compares quite favorably with most any California cab at that price, with bursts of dark berry goodness, fresh but firm tannins and a lovely, long finish. Try it with beef fajitas or stew and hard cheeses. Available at Cub (Shakopee), MGM (Hastings), River City, the Vintage and Edina muni (W. 50th St.). BILL WARD
