Beach Eats - Feb 18 - a look at the wines

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

Romance is in the air and Richmond Beach Community Association has the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for that special person in your life. We’ve teamed up with a couple of fine dining restaurants in Richmond Beach to bring you a unique progressive dinner featuring food and wine pairing on Thursday, February 18.

Here's a look at the wines that will be served.

Tradewinds and Chef Ken’s Catering: Hors d’oeuvres

Black Peak Tempranillo. Gorgeous bright ruby color with amber tints. A mouthful of captivating flavors with hints of festive winter season spices, cherry compote and supple leather. Imperium Riesling. Ripe pear and floral aromatics lend to a gentle attack followed by a honeylaced creaminess in its core. This is accentuated by bright, crisp acidity. Balanced and elegant, it shows nuances of fresh and dried apricot while lighter hints of lemon and grapefruit linger on the finish.

Elevation Cellars Merlot. Merlot is derived from the French word, merle, meaning “blackbird” for its color. This merlot holds that vision with true meaning. The aromas of licorice and blueberries capture your senses with a rich velvety mouth full of black cherry, plum and a dusting of black pepper.

Streetzeria: Salad and main course

Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel from Klinker Brick Winery. This is a blend of 16 different blocks of old vine Zinfandel from the Lodi, California, AVA. The vines are an average of 85 years old. This wine is aged in new American oak barrels resulting in classic Zinfandel aroma, flavor and taste. It was selected to complement the full-bodied cacciatore and marinated mushroom salad.

Hill’s Restaurant and Bar: Dessert

Royal Oporto Tawny Port from Real Companhia Velha Winery. Well-aged, with almond, fruitcake and caramel aromas and flavors. Fullbodied, sweet and lively, with orange peel, nuts and dried fruits on the finish. Excellent. This port comes from one of the oldest port houses in Porto and shows the depth of quality that is available in tawny ports.
