We just met with Martin Langer of Oz Wine Company, to choose the bottles to be served at our January 13 wine dinner. The dinner will feature six courses of our locally sourced, farm to table cuisine paired with bottles from small vineyards that produce small batch, hand crafted, and sometimes organic wines, from both Europe and California. Martin will be joining our guests at the table to share a dinner and to talk about the wines.
As usual the selection of intensely flavored, aromatic wines were spot on awesome. The following is a list of wines that we will be featuring along with tasting notes:
Amuse at the Counter
Thurnhof Goldmuskateller 09 Muscat Alto Adige, Italy
Very dry, lemon and hint of apple with floral finish
Domaine de Colette Morgon 09 Gamay Beaujolais
A jammy, full bodied real deal Beaujolais that puts the De Beauf to shame
Domaine de la Bergie Savennieres 06 Chenin Blanc Loire Vally France
Amazing bouquet of anise with bone dry finish
Mas d'Agalis "Yo no Puedo mas" Southern France
Insanely good and hard to categorize, opts out of appellation and labels in Spanish
Renaissance 2000 Cabernet Savignon Sierra Foothills California
Very Organic form one of the highest elevations in Cali
Scagliola-Promobacio Moscato d'Asti 09
Sweet with a light fizz, low alcohol with nice fruit flavor
Our approach with a wine dinner is for the flavor profiles of the wine along with what is fresh and in season to dictate the menu. Now that the wines are all set, we will be writing the menu this weekend and will post it early next week.
We still have four seats left, so be sure to give us a call to reserve a spot!
