$85 PER GUEST
MV Duval-Leroy Champagne, Brut Reserve, Vertus, Cote Des Blancs, France
Pairing Notes: Since 1859, the Duval-Leroy family has been perfecting the art that is their multi-vintage Brut Reserve. This stunning start to the evening is a blend of Pinot Noir, Meunier, and Chardonnay. The glass features notes of dark chocolate, cinnamon, and roasted yellow figs.
2015 Dr. Crusius Riesling, Kabinett, Traiser Rotenfels, Nahe, Germany
Pairing Notes: This single vineyard enjoys an abundance of sunshine, and Dr. Peter Crusius takes advantage of this incredible climate and unique volcanic soils to deliver a subtly honeyed wine with notes of candied lime, honey-crisp apples and a mouth-watering acidity. We couldn’t think of a better match for the tropical flavors of pineapple, chili, coconut and prawns on your first course!
2013 Williams Selyem Chardonnay, Unoaked, Russian River Valley
Pairing Notes: When considering what to pair with Halibut, we all agreed that Chardonnay was undoubtedly the right choice. We offer you a leaner style of Chardonnay that won’t overpower the delicate flavors of your second course. This wine features notes of melon, yellow apple and smokey tea. It has a refreshing acidity and full bodied texture that makes it perfect for the second course.
2013 Bruliam Pinot Noir, Soberanes Vineyard, Santa Lucia Highlands
Pairing Notes: Nestled in the heart of Santa Lucia Highlands, smack next door to famous Garys’ vineyard, is Soberanes Vineyard. Made by Kerith Overstreet, this Bruliam is everything that you would want – delightfully fresh red cherries and rhubarb and well-integrated earth and spice. A perfect pairing for the Roasted California Squab!
2013 Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon, Santa Cruz Mountains
Pairing Notes: If the Manhattan is the classic cocktail to pair with steak, then we all know that Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic wine. This Cabernet is perfectly balanced, with notes of blueberry, black cherry, and spice. A touch of Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc are added to enhance bright berries and lively acidity.
MV Eden Ice Cider, Northern Spy, Newport, Vermont
Pairing Notes: This is an amazing showcase of beautiful notes of caramel, warm apple sauce, and vanilla cookies. The wine has plenty of structure and the sweetness gets cut with mouthwatering acidity. Cheers to a refreshing dessert wine that won’t make your teeth hurt!
