Call me crazy, but I think the worst is behind us, at least weather wise, and perhaps once the convention is behind us other ways as well. I know we will be on a yo-yo for awhile, but it looks like a decent weekend to head out for some good food & wine. We will be featuring Certified Angus Beef Texas Sirloin, Mongchong Fish, and Halibut. Of course there will always be some Veal & Shrimp & Pasta & Clams & Mussels & Eggplant & Chicken & Hot Antipasta & Calamari and….We hope you have a chance to see us, we’d love to see ya’!
On our wine board we are running low on the Rhone blend from California, Juicy Rebound, and our supply of the Spanish Rioja from Palacio del Burgo is also running low. These are both very good wines and I have grown very fond of them. In the wings I have some reds from Portugal, California and Australia waiting their turn on the stage. I have added several wines to our wine list. The Brunello di Montalcino from Molino del Piano is now on our list and available at $50/bottle, which is very inexpensive for a quality Brunello. Rated 91 pts. by The Wine Advocate, this 2009 wine is the best Brunello I have tasted at this price point. The 2010 Crozes Hermitage from Jaboulet is a Syrah from the northern Rhone region of France. This is an old world wine from one of the best producers in the Rhone, meaning the fruit and nose are more restrained than are Syrahs from California and Australia, but this is not a puny wine. It offers an elegance from one of the premier wine regions in all
of France. The 2010 Cartuxa from Portugal is a blend of four grapes, three of which are indigenous to Portugal, and is an excellent wine at its price point, which is $34/bottle. Medium to full bodied, this gives you an idea of what wines from Portugal are all about, and offer among the best values in wine today. The 2011 Dark & Brooding from Palmeri is a combination of Syrah from Sonoma Cty. and Cabernet from Napa, and offers fruit, body and style. The 2012 Alloro is a Pinot Noir from the Chehalem Mts. region of the Willamette Valley in Oregon, and is among the best Pinots from Oregon I have tasted recently. Lastly, the 2013 Chardonnay from Four Hearts Vineyard is made with Russian River fruit, which I think provide among the finest Chardonnays from California. This wine has both balance and structure, the oak is there but not excessive, and is simply a very fine California Chardonnay. Four Hearts has received many outstanding ratings from the wine press, and their Chardonnay
has been served at White House dinners by the last four U.S. presidents.
Thank you for your continued support and friendship. We hope to see you soon.
