    This Week's Wine Selection
    Calina Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 Price: $8

    On the nose, the wine has a straightforward Cabernet Sauvignon
    character where cherries, plums and hints of mint are finely
    integrated with the oak. The structure and mouth-feel show its
    potential, with soft and ripe tannins together with a touch of
    oak that leads to a complete and lingering finish.

    Serve With:

    Garlic-Mustard Grilled Beef Skewers
    1 (2-pound) beef tenderloin, halved and cut into 1-inch slices
    6-inch wooden skewers, soaked in cold water for 30 minutes
    Garlic-Mustard Glaze, recipe follows

    Heat grill to high. Skewer 2 pieces of the beef onto 2 skewers so
    that the meat lies flat. Brush the meat liberally on both sides with
    the Garlic-Mustard Glaze. Grill the meat for 2 to 3 minutes per side
    until golden brown and cooked to medium-rare doneness, brushing with
    the remaining glaze while grilling. Remove from grill and serve.

    Garlic-Mustard Glaze:
    4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1/4 cup grainy mustard
    2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    2 teaspoons paprika
    1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    1 tablespoon honey

    Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and let sit
    at room temperature for 30 minutes before using.
