Pairings’ Wines plus “Best Year Ever” Table

Sat Nov 11, 4-7pm

Wines

Food

Ogliastra, Vermentino, Crisp White, Sardegna, Italy, Y, Pineapple and other tropical fruits in the bouquet with nice minerality and crispiness in the mouth; good acidity, and long.

Spicy Corn and Tomato Relish

It’s crunchy, it’s sweet, it’s a little savory.   From Stonewall Kitchen.  Wonderful for a Mexican breakfast.

Blanco de Tolono Rioja, Viura            Rich White, Rioja, Spain, Y. The light oak aging gives the wine a richness & roundness on the palate... aromas of white flowers and delicate toasty notes. Great refreshing acidity & lingering palate           

Lamb Chopper

This pasteurized sheep’s milk cheese is made in Holland for Cypress Gove Creamery of CA.  Gouda-like with a nutty, sweet taste with hints of vanilla.

Champalou Vouvray, Chenin Blanc, Soft White, Vouvray, Loire, Fr, Y. The freshness and delicate aromas of the wine make it a perfect partner with grilled fish and white meats, shell-fish, roasted vegetables and oriental food.    

Spinach, Artichoke & Mozzarella Dip

This Wildly Delicious dip is typically served warm and great for dipping bread, crackers, or vegetables.  Enjoy!

Grillo Duedonne (two women: Anna & Susanna), Schioppetino, Sangiovese, Smooth Red, Friuli & Tuscany, Italy, Y, Fragrant red fruit and spices, with well-integrated tannins, well balanced and showing expressive cherry and pepper notes      

Podda Classico

This pasteurized cow and sheep’s milk cheese hails from Sardinia.  It is zippy with a sweet nuttiness.  Similar to parm but (we think) more complex.

Marietta Cellars Roman, Zinfandel, Petite Syrah, Barbera, Bold Red, Alexander Valley, CA          , Bright, plump and exuberant, this is an incredibly delicious, inviting wine. Succulent red berry, spice, leather and floral notes add to the wine’s silky personality.      

Rogue Smokey Blue

Cold-smoked over local hazelnut shells, it is “Roquefortesque” with notes of ‘smores’.  Think camping!

Board Track Racer Vincent Red, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Bold Red, Columbia Valley, WA. Dense, pure aromas of black cherry, black raspberry and vanilla. The palate is bold, with mouth-filling concentration of blueberry and blackberry with a subtle licorice flavor. The finish is long and balanced, with firm tannins and refined acidity. 

Bresaola

100 % beef salami flavored with some warm spices, like allspice.
