Course Pairing / Description Wine

“Pretty and seductive white with sliced ripe apple and lemon rind character. Medium body, hints of cream and a delicious finish.” 91 points James Suckling
Clos Pegase Mitsuko's Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

“This wine’s ripe apple simplicity has a cool feel, pointed up by smoky lees and mineral notes that lengthen the flavor. A broad and generous 2015, this is ready to pour for chicken with mushrooms and cream.” 90 points Wine & Spirits
Louis Jadot Pouilly-Fuisse 2015

“A dense and beautifully crafted red with big silky tannins and a long flavorful finish of dark berry, cedar and light chocolate. Drink now.” 92 points James Suckling
Merryvale Pinot Noir 2014

Francois Martenot Bourgogne Pinot Noir

“Fresh and lively, this red shows bright fruit and spice flavors, with cherry, berry, vanilla and anise notes that mingle over light tannins and orange peel acidity. Harmonious and graceful, expressive and alluring.” 93 points Wine Spectator
Faustino Rioja Gran Reserva 2005

Matchbook ‘Dunnigan Hills’ Tinto Rey

“A blend consisting of 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese, 15% Syrah, this has aromas of black currant, pipe tobacco and a whiff of purple flower. Vibrant and elegant, the medium-bodied palate offers succulent blackberry, crunchy red cherry, clove and star anise alongside polished, fine-grained tannins.” 91 points Wine Enthusiast
Banfi Cum Laude 2015

“Complex aromas of creamy oak, mocha, gravel and dark berry combine for a dense, rich and concentrated effort that's firmly tannic, with a seam of elegance. Drink now through 2030.” 91 points Wine Spectator
Roth Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
