If this is how our summer is going to roll sign me up. I love the warm but not too hot days, the nights you can sleep without needing the air on, all good. But one thing, hot, humid, mild or cold, one has to eat, non? Well, we at Fratello’s are here for you. Like this weekend, when we will be featuring Piedmontese Boneless Beef Short Ribs, Atlantic Halibut and, in part by popular demand, Jumbo Sea Scallops. This weekend looks primo to head out for some fine food & wine, so we hope to see you. We’ll be here, come keep us company.
I have added a wine to our feature board that I think you will like. The Jax Y3 Taureau is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Zinfandel from a Calistoga vintner I respect. It is an approachable, everyday drinking wine with excellent fruit, good color, and very food friendly. All for $28/bottle. I also plan to add to the board a new Pinot Noir from Oregon, Persnickety, room permitting, which is a Willamette Valley Pinot at an affordable rate. A Pinot loving friend of mine gave me a thumbs up, which matches my thoughts on the wine, so you ought to try it. Pinot Noir from Oregon, as I have told you before, more matches Pinot Noir from France, which is its ancestral home, more than Pinot Noir from California does. This is no knock on Californian Pinot, which I love and we have several to choose from on our wine list, but Pinot from Oregon is exceptional. We have several Oregon Pinot Noirs on our list as well. Some of you, a dear friend of mine for instance, turn
their noses up at Pinot Noir, but I urge you to give them a chance. They are wonderful food wines, perhaps not with hearty meals such as steaks, but work well with some seafood and poultry, and are excellent on their own. There is a world of wine out there, go exploring.
I hope you are enjoying our good weather fortune, and that you are well. Thanks for all your support, and we hope to see you soon.
P.S. HOW ABOUT THOSE CAVS!!!!
