Each wine was chosen from unique vineyards around the world by The Capital Grille’s Master Sommelier, George Miliotes, one of only 186 in the world. “I selected the wines for the Generous Pour Wine Event, relying on favorites from unique vineyards that I enjoy in my own personal cellar.” Allowing guests to experience the wine paired with food, tasting notes and expert guidance from our servers, adds depth to the experience that a traditional tasting event would not provide. The best way to learn about wine is to drink it!”
The Generous Pour Wine Event introduces guests to some of the season’s newest wine trends, while also offering hard-to-find varietals and known favorites. Highlights from this summer’s signature collection of choice whites and reds are:
- Conn Creek Anthology, Cabernet, 2007 – The finest vintage of the last 50 years for Cabernet in Napa, this robust blend of Bordeaux grapes from 13 of the region’s top vineyards is Conn Creek’s crowning jewel. A rich and creamy wine to complement dry aged steak.
- Ferrari-Carano Mountain Reserve, Cabernet, 2008 – The Capital Grille is proud to be hosting the exclusive debut of Mountain Reserve from Ferrari-Carano. With a mixture of aromas and a long, dry finish, this bold Alexander Valley Cabernet is the perfect accompaniment for Kona Crusted Dry Age Sirloin.
- Simcic, Rebula, 2008/09 – Available exclusively at The Capital Grille, this wine, also known as “Orange Wine,” is a 1,000 year-old style of wine production making a comeback. Highly aromatic, it is an ideal companion for appetizers and light fish dishes.
- Villa Mt. Eden Grand Reserve, Pinot Noir, 2007 – One of Master Sommelier George Miliotes personal favorites, this silky and smooth wine, boasting flavors of strawberry, cherry, and toffee, pairs beautifully with Cedar Planked Salmon with Tomato Fennel Relish.
