La Marca Prosecca -This fully sparkling wine is a pale, golden straw in color. Bubbles are full textured and persistent. On the nose, the wine brings fresh citrus with a vibrant bouquet of apple, white peach and honeysuckle, the soft, harmonious fruity notes make this wine ideal for any occasion.
Table One: Carved Turkey & Beef
Cameron Hughes 314 Napa Chardonnay - The nose is layered with orange blossom, lemon curd, and toasted almond aromatics underpinned with spicy pear and apple aromas. The palate is unctuous with creamy oak but lifted and complex with ripe pear, pretty minerality and honeysuckle notes. There is tremendous length to this wine despite its youth, indicating there is more here to come.
Tuck Beckstoffer ’75 Cabernet Sauvignon - A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by a classic nose of sweet black cherries and cassis (reminiscent of a Rutherford Cab), pleasant spice and smoke characteristics, medium to full body, and silky tannin. This pure, elegant beauty should be consumed over the next 10-12 years.
Table Two: Sweet Bacon
Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling - Super Kung Fu Girl! More depth and complexity than ever. Apricot, kumquat, nectarine and lime leaves. A great mid-palate intensity with a long, long minerally finish. This is one for the books....THE BOOK OF KUNG FU!
Baci Dolce Sparkling Sweet Kiss - A delicate, spritzy wine with an intense, lively ruby red color. Fresh strawberry & black cherry aromas with hints of roses. Cherry pie flavors, medium-full bodied with refreshing sparkle to balance the semi sweet finish.
Table Three: Bruschetta & Smoked Salmon Carte Noire Cotes de Provence Rose - The wine is brilliant orange-pink. Its nose is accented with notes of crushed strawberry; and upon one's palate it's round and supple in texture. Carte Noire rosé is a well balanced, harmonious, delightful, and pleasant wine. Belle Glos Meiomi Pinot Noir - This beautiful Pinot Noir produced by Caymus carries aromas of tobacco, dark red fruits and fresh berries. The rich cherry flavor is complemented by notes of cedar, raspberry and strawberry. Enjoy with turkey, salmon or beef dishes. Table Four: Teriyaki Chicken & Cheese with Crackers Hogue Gewurztraminer -This Gewürztraminer offers up varietal spiciness, along with intense aromas and flavors of lychee, apricot, peach, and citrusy notes of orange and lemon-lime. Soft and rich, with a balancing acidity and a slight mineral character Don Ramon Red - A dry red wine with deep color and full fruit flavors with a soft, rich finish.
Table Five: Fruit Tray & Spinach Dip
St. Supery Napa Valley Moscato - Vibrant young hues of pale yellow and green present this wine. Opulent tropical aromas combine with peach, mango, kiwi, orange and lime zest. Explosive flavors follow with similar kiwi and mango, a hint of honey dew, stone fruit and a zippy orange rind finish. This sweet wine is terrific, rich and exciting, finishing clean and balanced. Enjoy! Domaine Pichot Vouvray - Pichot Vouvray is a benchmark for the region, golden delicious apple, plum, and pineapple aromatics with bright acid and a lingering finish. Dessert Table: Cheescake Bites & Chocolate Covered Strawberries Banfi Rosa Regale – This wine has a delicate bouquet of rose petals and offers sensuous flavors of fresh raspberries and strawberries. Its effervescence is softer than that of champagne, yet it yields a persistent and delicate pink froth.
