The reception was centered around four new wine selects that have been recently added to the Master’s Sommelier’s award winning list of 23 wines. Food consisted of an extravagant spread of cheeses, roasted vegetables, a lobster tower with oysters and shrimp. Beautifully and deliciously handcrafted appetizers made their rounds. Below are the four featured wines and Master Sommeier’s George Miliotes notes…
Godello, Valdeorras, Spain 2008
The Godello grape gives intense and ripe flavors of peach, pear and apple that explode on the palate. A crisp finish with subtle hints of oak makes this wine perfect with seafood selections.
Domaine Vincent Girardin
1er Cru, Les Gravieres, Pinot Noir, Santenay 2007
Ripe red cherries, raspberries and exotic spices blend with the earthiness that is only found in Burgundy. The silky smooth finish of this Pinot Noir pairs perfectly with the rich flavors of salmon.
Howell Mountain, Napa 2004
The finest mountain growing site in Napa yields this robust Cabernet…dense and ripe red fruit are balanced by powerful plump tannins typical of La Jota. This Napa Cabernet is lovely with any aged steak.
Barossa Valley Estates
E&E, Black Pepper Shiraz
Barossa, Australia 2004
Rich blueberry fruit flavors, a meaty aroma and hints of herbes de Provence fill the senses and finish with a velvety mouthful. This Ausie Shiraz and lamb chops are a classic food pairing.
Some delectable photos of Chef Dana Dare’s menu items brought out the flavor in each one of the featured wines…
