$85 PER GUEST
MV Delamotte Champagne, Brut, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Cóte des Blancs, France
Pairing Notes: We are thrilled to begin the evening with bubbles from one of our favorite houses. This wine is predominantly grand cru Chardonnay. Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are added to finish the personality of the wine. The finish is elegant and perfectly balanced with notes of white flesh fruit, pear, and ginger.
2015 Eyrie Pinot Gris, Dundee Hills, Oregon
Pairing Notes: For your Asparagus Ravioli we present this delightful glass that features aromatic notes of spring greens. The palate boasts of pomme fruits and crushed fennel that play well with the Roasted Asparagus and Nantes Carrot. It has a strong backbone of acidity while maintaining a soft, round texture.
2016 Nellcote Rose, Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley
Pairing Notes: This Rose is made from Malbec and Syrah grapes and is an absolute treasure. The wine has a dry complexity while showing off notes of strawberry and bright red cherries. They give way to the sweetness of the Shallot-Basted Scallop, and the medium body of the wine is simply perfect with the Prosciutto.
2015 Aphros Loureiro, Vinho Verde, Minho, Portugal
Pairing Notes: It is with great delight that we pour this unique varietal that comes from Portugal. Notes of green apple and Bosc pears play well to the Smoke-Roasted Poussin. The Creamy Artichoke Cous Cous is met with a mouth-watering acidity and a breadth of mineral that beckons you to enjoy another bite.
2015 Andrew Will Merlot, Columbia Valley, Washington
Pairing Notes: Onto the red! And we were sure to present you with one that is a surefire knockout, as it is loaded with ripe blackberries and dark cherries. Tannins bind to your protein, providing a burst of flavor and a plush texture that coats the palate, playing nicely to the Fondant and White Asparagus.
2013 Anam Cara Late Harvest Gewurztraminer, Nicholas Estate, Chehalem Mountains, Oregon
Pairing Notes: We finish with a scrumptious treat for our palate. Layers of honey, ripe peach, and juicy nectarine deliver quite the finale to be had with the Coconut Pavlova. The sweetness of the wine is the perfect complement to the Pineapple and Yuzu Sabayon.
