Wouldn’t you know it, we get the coldest temps of the season on Valentines’s weekend! Do not be troubled, however, for it is warm in Fratello’s (I paid the bill) and we are here for you and your Valentine, or whomever you come with (we’re easy). However, be warned that on the actual Valentine’s Day this Sunday we will all be somewhere else with our Valentines. But this weekend we will be featuring Red Grouper, the ever popular Jumbo Sea Scallops and Certified Angus Beef Bone-in Rib Eye Steaks. And Veal and Shrimp and Pasta and Clams and Mussels and Eggplant and Chicken and….I am sure we have something to delight your palate.
On our wine board our supply of the very fruit forward Riddler is getting limited, but I expect delivery tomorrow of two new wines to join the Joel Gott Cabernet and Siena from Ferrari-Carano on the board. One is the new vintage of the red blend Connundrum and another is a Cabernet Sauvignon but not from Napa. This wine is from the Lake District north of Napa, and when tasting it I thought it offered a nice contrast from the Napa Cab from Joel Gott. Not better, just different, they are both good and the Joel Gott is not going anywhere as long as they have it. I also have a Brunello from 2009 that is not on our list but I was able to get it at a price point that puts it at $50 on our list, which is inexpensive for a Brunello. This wine from Molino del Piano is rated 91 by Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate, and just might be the wine to make your Valentine swoon. Just saying. I have said before, I am sure that we have a wine here for you, just ask.
Thanks you for your continued support, and remember that we are here to help you make your Valentine happy. We look forward to seeing you soon.
