Top Picks From Our Sommelier

The Calling, Dutton Ranch, Russian River Valley, Chardonnay

This classic Chardonnay captures crisp citrus and honeydew notes kissed by subtle oak and an elegant, full bodied finish. Enjoy it this versatile wine with Jumbo Lump Crab Cocktail or Chilean Sea Bass.

Mauritson ‘Loam’, Rockpile, Sonoma, Cabernet Sauvignon

At 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine delivers a perfectly structured red that blends dark fruit, cassis and supple tannins to create a perfectly balanced finish. Pair it with our Dry Aged Porterhouse or Bone-In Kona Crusted Dry Aged NY Strip with Shallot Butter.

Joseph Phelps, Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon

Hailed for expressive cherry, licorice and blackberry notes, a supple mouthfeel and velvety finish. Accompanied by our Porcini Rubbed Bone-In Ribeye with 15-Year Aged Balsamic makes for an unbeatable pair.

Etude ‘Estate’, Carneros, Sonoma, Pinot Noir

Rich expanses of red cherry, wild strawberry and pomegranate brighten the palate while layers of sandalwood and sassafras give this Pinot intensity and depth. The Etude is medium-bodied and smooth while remaining lively and uplifting. Pairs incredibly well with Sushi-Grade Sesame Seared Tuna with Gingered Rice.

Domain Serene ‘Evenstad’, Willamette Valley, Pinot Noir

This full-bodied wine exemplifies the earthy, complex ripe fruit characteristics of great Oregon Pinot Noir. Noted for great purity of fruit and structure, it pairs exceptionally well with our Seared Citrus Glazed Salmon with Marcona Almonds and Brown Butter.

Ceretto, Barolo, Piedmont, Nebbiolo

Complex layers are born from this Barolo—immediate ripe fruit rushes in and then gives way to reveal a more savory wine with dried raspberry and herb notes. An outstanding complement to our Double Cut Lamb Rib Chops and Bone-In Ribeye.

Chappellet ‘Mountain Cuvée’, Napa Valley, Proprietary Red

Aged in French oak, this medium-bodied proprietary blend balances ripe black cherry and cassis with the gravity of well-integrated tannins and hints of clove and vanilla. Pairs well with our Dry Aged NY Strip Au Poivre with Courvoisier Cream.

Opus One, Napa Valley, Proprietary Red

Genius brainchild of Robert Mondavi and Baron Phillipe de Rothschild, this New World wine is the apex of proprietary red, exuding opulence and class. Sought worldwide for its bold character, depth of dark fruit and ultra-fine tannins, pair with our Gorgonzola and Truffle Crusted Dry Aged Bone-In NY Strip.
