Crazy times we live in, non? Now I know this can apply to many things these days, especially this year (if you know what I mean), but I’m thinking of going from wicked cold to nearly 40 degrees in a day or so, and then, they say, returning to the teens again on Monday. A little consistency would be nice. Like, for instance, what we try to do here at Fratello’s with our food & wine & service &…, well, with everything. Take this weekend, when we will be offering as specials Mahi-mahi from Hawaii, Swordfish and Certified Angus Beef Flat Iron Steak. We hope you have a chance to join us, we’d love to see ya’!
A few wine thoughts to share with you. On our wine board we have a few bottles left of the Cabernet blend from Argentina, Finca Libertad, which is on the bigger body side and perhaps more in the style of an old world wine rather than a fruit bomb from the new world. The Cabernet blend from Washington from Revelry, The Reveler, has officially joined the board, and this red blend does show more fruit that does the Argentine wine yet also offers body, structure and substance. I have mentioned this vineyard before, and I am very impressed with their efforts. Revelry also makes an excellent Syrah which we have on our wine list, and it is among the best Syrahs I have ever tasted. I have also added a few bottles of a Grenache by Revelry, which has attracted excellent reviews. Both of these wines are “*” wines, but worth the cost. Lastly, I also want to mention the Pinot Noir from Maysara which we have on our list. Now I know that some of you are perhaps not that keen on Pinot Noir,
but I urge you to enlarge your tent and try it. This wine from Oregon is excellent, and Maysara was considered the best Pinot in a tasting the New York Times had recently of Oregon Pinot Noirs. I have visited this vineyard and was very impressed with their efforts and the way they run their business, professionally and the way they treat the environment and their employees. We have two Pinot Noir wines from Maysara on our list, and a Pinot Gris as well. Try them, I think you will be impressed.
We hope you are well and into the swing of things for 2016, and we hope to see you soon. Thank you for all your support, it is very much appreciated.
