While walking the vineyard we will partake in a cold glass of our sassy
Uber Rhenish Dry Riesling
paired with seared scallops, honey goat cheese, crisp prosciutto and balsamic drizzle
atop artisan toast finished with lemon thyme.
After our brief viticultural trek, we will repair to the cool sanctum of the wine cellar
Where we will begin with our barrel fermented and sur lie aged Viognier/Valdiguie
paired withShrimp Ceviche and English pea purée atop a homemade potato chip
finished with oregano.
Following these first two white wines will be our new co-fermented Blanc de Noir we call Point Blanc
from grapes grown entirely at Love Ranch Vineyard in Coarsegold. With it you will enjoyD'anjou
pears, Humboldt fog bleu cheese and toasted walnuts atop water crackers finished with chive.
Your first red wine will be our new Malbec Saint Michael which will exhibit its heady perfume and
spicy flavors in concert with Shredded Cornish game hen and smoked Gouda with a black
cherry/cognac drizzle atop artisan toast finished with tarragon.
A very special Clone 4 Cabernet Sauvignon grown at over 3000 feet in elevation in Mariposa County will
steal your attention, and perhaps your heart when tasted with Chef Burdick's Thai marinated - thinly sliced
sirloin in cucumber cups.
Never to leave your tasting experience unfinished, it will be a
Fait Accompli 2007 "Renaissance"
in the decadent companyof a dark chocolate and fresh strawberry torte.
