Assorted Canapés to begin, followed by wild-caught Faroe Islands Salmon with Nichols Farm Spinach and Rice Pilaf.  Dessert is a composed Trifle.  Todd from Fine Vines has four amazing wines paired to the courses.  $62.00 per person.
Reservations only.

DON’T FORGET TO BUY A BOTTLE OF WINE FOR MOTHERS DAY–
REMEMBER YOU’RE THE REASON SHE DRINKS! 

Pick up a bottle of Undone Pinot Noir or Undone Dry Riesling and save 25% off the shelf price!

This Undone Pinot Noir is very smooth, with berry and plum notes on the palate. It was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, so it has no oak influence – the pure flavors of Pinot Noir show through. A perfect match with salmon, red meat, and pasta.

  The Undone estate is located in Germany’s Rheinhessen region which is the largest wine region by area. It has gently rolling hills and is situated in the climatically favored large elbow formed by the Rhein river as it flows from Worms to its sweeping bend around Mainz then back north at Bingen.

  Undone Dry Riesling has crisp citrus notes, such as grapefruit and gooseberry. The wine is vibrant and finishes very clean. It is reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc. This Dry Riesling will pair well with seafood, sushi and shellfish, as well as salads and white meats.

Capriole’s O’Banon

1st Place, American Cheese Society, 2014

“An old cheese with a new name, the O’Banon was one of the first cheeses we made in 1988, when no one would buy a goat cheese that did not have a French name. While banon has been made for centuries in the Haute Provence, Steve Jenkins made ours popular when he wrote in his Cheese Primer that Capriole’s “is much, much better than any I’ve tasted in France.” Ours is larger and fresher than the French to give a lighter, palate cleansing edge to heavier cheeses on a cheese board. Traditionally, the chestnut leaves used to wrap the cheese were soaked in eau de vie. We use Woodford Reserve Bourbon. The tannins in the leaves and the bourbon combine to give this creamy, dense cheese just a nuance of a kick! At 2 months old it’s better than at 2 weeks. Visually, it’s certainly more beautiful than the French one. The new name? It’s inspired by long time friend, Frank O’Bannon, the governor of Indiana who died unexpectedly a few years ago. The O’Banon is vacuum packaged when the leaves are slightly wet. It can be removed from it’s packaging and allowed to ripen under the leaves. 2001, 2004, 2007, and 2008 ACS Award Winner.”

Pairings

Fruity champagnes and California Viogniers

We have a few pieces in the Cheese Case–it is delicious!
