“Bite into a suculent steak and the first thing that comes to mind, might just be the earthy taste of a Cabernet Sauvignon: Louis A Martini! I found this on the and Certified Angus Beef site. Fantastic sounding! Have not tasted it as yet; have saved it for my best friend who is planning a large dinner party;).Edited on10/17/2008: The caloric value is high but this is for a whole meal - steak, risotto, cabernet sauvignon, cream ad infinitum!! Therefore, I am warning you but we tasted this and it was wonderful!! Added a few things here and there but I hope this has made it better - at least we like it! Originally posted: 08/07/2008.:=)”
