January 2018 HOUSE WINE PAIRINGS
$85 PER GUEST
MV Delamotte Champagne, Blanc de Blancs, 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 100% Chardonnay and features soft aromas of green apple, brioche, and lemon zest. The finish is lush and perfectly balanced with a note reminiscent of fine, silky chalk.
2016 Galerie Riesling, Terracea, Spring Mountain District, Napa Valley
Pairing Notes: We dive into Act II with this delicious and dry Riesling. The glass is redolent with notes of juicy ripe peach, rose petals, and lavender honey. The palate features notes of silky, ripe stone fruit and has a beautiful acidity that makes it perfect alongside the scallop with sweet and sour glazed sweetbreads.
2015 Stag’s Leap Chardonnay, Karia, Napa Valley
Pairing Notes: For your Dungeness crab tortellini, we present this luscious glass that displays aromas of lemon, red apple, and vanilla. The finish is long with a lovely texture and just the perfect hint of creamy oak. This wine simply dances with the carrot-apple nage and Dungeness crab.
2014 Maison L’Envoye Pinot Noir, Two Messengers, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Pairing Notes: This delightful course is accompanied by an equally energetic Pinot Noir. Juicy flavors of black raspberry and red cherry become spicier as they linger on your tongue. We couldn’t have hoped for a better wine to line up next to your duck breast and coastal huckleberries.
1998 Artesa Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve, Napa Valley
Pairing Notes: We are incredibly excited to share this beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon with you. The cherry, plum, and liquorish flavors are quite an experience with the tenderloin. Espresso cream, vanilla, and smooth tannin make this not only a favorite wine, but a favorite pairing.
2014 La Fleur D’Or Late Harvest White, Sauternes, France
Pairing Notes: Your final Act this evening features this delightful treat. The wine shows light notes of ripe apricot and honey. It is delicate and elegant, with a good amount of acidity, making it the perfect complement for your Thai tea pot de crème with tropical fruit.
