An Extraordinary California Wine Dinner

Thursday, August 30, 2018 • 6:30 pm

Our annual Extraordinary California Wine Dinner will take place at the end of August, it seems Bill Fox likes to get back to Naples earlier and earlier each year, we told him he should stay and enjoy the beautiful Autumn season of Northern Ohio. This year’s line features an outstanding array of highly rated, difficult to find, delicious red wines from Napa Valley to Paso Robles.

We start the red wine flights with a trio of fabulous red Rhône blends from Paso Robles. These wines have limited availability and are rarely seen in Ohio. The dinner continues to the Napa Valley where we have selected nine outstanding Cabernet Sauvignons from the 2013, 2014 & 2015 vintages. We have asked Heidleberg Distributors to showcase their best of the best, so no wine with a score under 93 points was chosen, with most of these red wines rated 95 plus by the Wine Advocate. What a way to start your Labor Day Weekend!!!!Citrus-Cured Ora King Salmon, Ohio Blackberry & Petit Watercress Salad, Citrus Vinaigrette
