August 2017 RESERVE WINE PAIRINGS
$135 PER GUEST
MV Copinet Champagne, Brut, Extra Quality, Vallée de la Marne, France
Pairing Notes: This stunning glass is brought to you from one of our favorite Grower Producers. When Marie and Alex were visiting here in the States, there were 3 people running the winery back home. This phenomenal start to the evening is a blend of Pinot Noir, Meunier, and Chardonnay. The glass features notes of baked apple, lemon rind, and soft yeast.
2012 Château la Garde White Blend, Péssac Leognan Blanc, Bordeaux, France
Pairing Notes: Fresh and full of wild character is how this Bordeaux Blanc represents itself. It’s full of passionfruit and soft white grapefruit to complement the liveliness of the ceviche. The creamy lime-avocado pearls will showcase well with the toasty notes of the wine.
2012 Massolino Nebbiolo, Barolo, Piedmont, Italy
Pairing Notes: Our Ravioli Caprese makes you think of one thing and one thing only, Italian wine! Barolo especially. A beautiful red core of fruit, violet perfume, and earthy notes bring out the true essence of your dish. The wine’s juicy acidity and alcohol will cleanse the palate, setting you up for each next perfect bite.
2014 Paul Jaboulet White Blend, Crozes Hermitage Blanc, Dom. Mule Blanche, Rhone Valley, France
Pairing Notes: With butter basted scallops, a juicy wine is needed to cleanse the palate after the chili cream. The wine explodes with a notes of Meyer lemon and ginger, then features a mouthwatering finish. The pickled corn in the dish will bring out an added dimension to the wine.
2000 White Cottage Cabernet Sauvignon, Risa, Napa Valley
Pairing Notes: The most classic of pairings is what you’re about to experience. With Tenderloin wrapped in Serrano Ham, a California classic wine like this Cabernet Sauvignon, go hand in hand. Raspberry, blueberry, and cherry that is balanced and well-integrated tannin make this the perfect pairing. The wine has a clean, ultra-long finish that makes you want to come back for more.
2014 Gorka Izagirre Bizkaiko Txakolina, Arima, Pais Vasco, Spain
Pairing Notes: This wine is only produced in special vintages. Over-ripe peaches and white nectarines hit your tongue. It’s a truly unique taste that complements the fluffy pistachio cake. The buttermilk ice cream, rich in nature, will help express the flavors of the wine. A treat that is not overwhelmingly sweet. Cheers!
