A choice between two entrees:
Spice crusted pork tenderloin with brussel sprouts and hush puppy cakes
Paired with 2011 Road 31 Pinot Noir…Napa Valley, CA. Opening with a profuse nose of violets, red fruits, and a hint of cola, with both cherry and blackberry flavors, wrapped in all kinds of earth: mushrooms, forest floor, leather, tobacco.
Crayfish Etouffe, a hearty stew with a scoop of dirty rice
Paired with 2010 Adelsheim Pinot Gris… Willamette Valley, OR.
Crisp and bright, you’ll find hints of papaya, apples and pears, with a gentle creaminess that lends a rich, mouth-filling texture and long finish.
Cornbread pudding with whiskey caramel sauce
Paired with Graham’s 10-year Tawny Port…Douro Valley, Portugal. It has deep tawny color, with complex nutty aromas, combined with hints of honey and figs. On the palate, enjoy mature fruit flavors, beautifully mellowed and a luscious long finish.
