October Wine Dinner

Here are a few food and wine pairings that have been tested by a panel of experts. The findings were overwhelmingly conclusive.

Our food and wine club has been meeting monthly for about 3 years now. We have enjoyed some amazing pairings and these can be added to the list.

The theme for the evening was Cabernet Sauvignon wines. Included was a 1006 Clos du Bois from Alexander Valley; 2008 V. Sattui from Napa Valley; 2003 Kenwood from Sonoma Valley. We enjoyed a sparkling wine as a greater and a delicious dessert wine. Thrown into the mix for the white wine drinkers was a 2011 Beringer Chardonnay from Napa Valley.

The Chardonnay was paired with Salmon with Orange and Paprika rub
The Clos du Bois was paired with Mushroom Empanadas

The V. Sattui was paired with Stuffing Sausage Balls

The Kenwood was paired with Grilled steak, fries and green beans

You can never go wrong with steak and Cabernet Sauvignon.
