I know it is snowing out as I write this, and Mon Dieu, it is even sticking!! But fear not, better days are coming. Not only are the days definitely getting longer, but I heard a rumor that next week we are expecting temps in the 60’s and some say may even approach 70 (I know, I don’t believe it either). I do know that our friend Daylight Savings is about to come back, and did I say that the days are getting longer? Time to be optimistic, I say (always better to be half full anyway), and treat yourselves to some fine food & wine this weekend. For our part, we will be featuring Certified Angus Beef Flat Iron Steaks, Haddock from the North Atlantic, and Gold Tile Fish from off the coast of Florida. We’d love to see ya’!
Our wine board is in a bit of transition, and by this weekend we will be featuring the Napa Cabernet from Joel Gott, the Sangiovese blend from Sonoma by Ferrari-Carano, and the Tempranillo, Tamaral, from Spain. I have mentioned Spanish wines in the past, and I am a big fan of these wines because they offer both quality and value and they work very well with our menu. This wine from Tamaral is a Tempranillo, the major red grape along with Garnacha in Spain, is medium to full bodied with both abundant fruit, body and structure. I also received more of the Brunello from Molino del Piano from Italy. Brunello along with Barolos, some Barbarescos and Amarone, are among the best and most expensive wines from Italy. This Brunello, however, is a value, Brunello wise, yet also earned 91 points when rated by the Wine Advocate. I usually feel with these wines that if they are under priced there usually is a reason, quality wise. This wine, while not inexpensive at $50/bottle but less
than the more typical $80 plus for a Brunello, does proved a glimpse into what Brunello, which is 100% Sangiovese, is all about. Just a thought.
Thanks to all of you who have supported us all these many years, through thick & thin, snow, rain, sleet & sun (we have it all, don’t we?). It is very much appreciated. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
