Pretty warm out, non? I know it has been even warmer already – as I said last week, we really know it in our kitchen when it’s hot out – but it sure looks and feels like summer already. Which is not bad thing, because summer is a great time to head out for some fine food & wine, hopefully at a nice little Italian restaurant in Avon Lake. Like, say at Fratello’s, when this weekend we will be featuring Brazilian Black Grouper, Mahi-mahi from Hawaii, and Certified Angus Beef Texas Sirloin. I know this time of year there are a lot of demands on your time, like your lawns, your golf game, your boat, your whatever, but we sure love to see ya’!
On our wine board we continue to feature the red blend from Andis from Amador County, California, Painted Fields. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cabernet Franc and Petit Sirah, medium to full body, excellent fruit, good finish, just a good tasting wine that matches well with our menu. It joins the Cab from Joel Gott and the Sangiovese blend, Siena, from Ferrari-Carano, and we also have a few bottles left of the excellent red blend from Australia by Rubus, their Proprietary Reserve. I have a nice Pinot Noir from Oregon and another red blend from California by Jax in the wings awaiting their turn on the board. I expect their debut to be very soon, but ask me about them, I love to try new wines again. Who doesn’t? As I have said many times, some might say ad nauseum, it is fun and interesting to try new wines, and I am confident that we have a wine here that will work for you.
We hope you are well and in good health, and we look forward to seeing you soon. Thanks for all your support. Take care.
