Happy Spring everyone! Rumor has it that tomorrow may look and feel more like the season that just ended, but then comes a rebound to more seasonal temps. I know, it is usually a slow march towards nicer weather and days this time of year, but it is coming. Longer days, warmer days, maybe even the sun if we’re lucky, it is all coming. Time to celebrate and head out for some fine food & wine. For our part, we will be featuring Swordfish and Red Grouper, both from off the southern coast of our country, and Lamb Chops from Colorado. I know this weekend often lends itself to a feast celebrating Easter, so I suggest perhaps letting us prepare your meals for you this weekend. We’d love to see ya’!
The wine world seems to ratchet up this time of year, with tastings and new releases, and fear not for I am working for you and attending as many of these tastings as I can to provide you with fine wine when you visit. We have received new releases of wines from Orin Swift (i.e. Dave Phinney) and the Prisoner Wine Company (i.e. the wines that Dave Phinney sold to this new company). The 2014 vintage of The Prisoner, the Zinfandel based blend, has arrived, the 2014 vintage of the Cabernet based Palermo, and the new release of Papillon, among Mr. Phinney’s higher end products. I also want to remind you of the Italian wines not on our list that are available. The Brunello di Montalcino from Molina del Piano is a well respected and rated red wine which we are offering at $50/bottle, which is a good value for a Brunello. The Antinori Rosso Toscana is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah, and comes from one of the most respected vineyards in Italy. It is available for
$30/bottle. Always remember, there is a lot of juice out there, and I am confident we have a wine here for you to enjoy.
We want to wish you all a most blessed and happy Easter. Thanks for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
