Wine Wednesday: Caymus/Wagner Wine Dinner



The Wagner winemaking family has been in Napa Valley for five generations, since the early 1800s. Founded by Charlie, Lorna and their son Chuck, Caymus Vineyards was established in 1972. --- Today, the Wagner family of wines include Caymus, Mer Soleil, Belle Glos, Meiomi, Conundrum, and Clark & Telephone. Many of these are among my favorite California wines. 

On Wednesday, March 28, 2012, Wild Grape New West Bistro will host a four-course (plus dessert) wine dinner featuring a really tempting array of the Wagner Family wines. The menu and pairings is as follows: 

Blood orange carrot-ginger puree with scallops, arugula, mushroom leek salad/Mer Soleil Chardonnay

Duck with honey wine & adobe gastrique/Meiomi Pinot Noir

Porcini-dusted veal scaloppini with Cognac-mushroom demi glaze and seasonal vegetables/Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir

Buffalo short rib, sweet potato gnocchi, sauteed Swiss chard & tart cherry demi glaze/Caymus Cabernet

Flourless chocolate ganache with coffee

The cost for the dinner is $45 for food and $60 for wine. In addition, an optional glass of Caymus Special Selection Cabernet will be offered for an additional $25.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling 801-746-5565.

By the way, new Wild Grape Chef Dustin Arnold and sous chef Lukas James will be debuting their new spring menu on April 3rd.
