November 2017 HOUSE WINE PAIRINGS
$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 composed of 50% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, and 20% Pinot Meunier. All three varietals come together to deliver mouth watering wine that is dry, extremely attractive, balanced, and elegant.
2013 Possente Grillo, Sicily, Italy
Pairing Notes: We kick things off with this lovely, delightful wine to complement your Acorn Pasta. The wine is 100% Grillo, an indigenous Sicilian varietal. The nose is floral with hints of vanilla and citrus fruits, and pays homage to the Pumpkin Fromage Blanc. The palate features a full wine that has a soft texture and a slight nuttiness that makes it perfect for the Acorn Pasta.
2015 Beaux Fréres Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Pairing Notes: The second course is met with this little treasure that is full of bright red cherries. The ripeness of the fruit is beautiful next to the Fuyu Persimmons and the Pomegranate Coulis. The finish comes with some dried herbs that dance alongside the Ham-Style Sonoma Pekin Duck Breast.
2015 Wm. Harrison Chardonnay, Sangiacomo Family Vineyards, Carneros
Pairing Notes: For your Pan Roasted Porcini Dusted Sea Scallop, we have this delicious Chardonnay. The nose is packed with white flowers and citrus blossoms that really shine on the Cider Poached Quince. Each sip features flavors of pear and citrus and a lush texture that complements the Sea Scallop incredibly well.
2014 Manzoni Syrah, Home Vineyard, Santa Lucia Highlands
Pairing Notes: This wine leaps out of the glass with ripe black fruit with hints of vanilla and a smoky oak that make it the perfect mate for the Tobacco Cured Beef Tenderloin Pastrami. The silky tannins are even more refined with each bite, and a touch of spice is brought to light with the Green Peppercorn Jus.
2015 Etienne Dupont Cidre Bouché, Normandy, France
Pairing Notes: Of course we finish with one of the finest expressions of Cidre to pay tribute to the Hard Apple Cider Crème Brulee. The Apple Butter and Nutella are sure to be singing when enjoyed with this beautiful treat that is not cloyingly sweet. Here’s a little secret…the dessert is made with the same Cidre! Cheers!
