Small Plates & Wine Pairing
frisee salad
mixed greens | blueberries | forme d’ambert | honey lavender vinaigrette | crispy sweet potato curls | 7.95

Amestoi Txakoli     Basque Country, Spain   9.00

txakoli is made most often from a grape named hondarribi zurri.  leave it to the basque to make a slightly effervescent rose wine that is tart and full of lime.  everyone should try this once.

seared amberjack
basil spaetzle | cherry tomatoes | cucumber | green beans |

ricotta salata | mignonette caviar | 9.95

Adega de Pegões   Terras do Sado, Portugal   6.50

really interesting nose of summer ripe fruit like peaches and apricots. on the palate a touch of that same fruit comes out with great acidity.

tuna tartare

ginger sesame granola | sriracha peanut butter | watermelon | cucumber ginger salad| wasabi mayo | 10.95

 

Dr. Konstantin Frank  Dry Riesling  Finger Lakes, NY   8.50

With a touch of residual sugar, this riesling has a touch of sweetness on the finish, but the acidity cleans it up nicely.  Enough fruit to stand up to spicy or umami flavors, but crisp enough to be enjoyed on its own.

grilled pork loin
watermelon | pheta | kalamata olives | watercress|pineapple-mint-coconut sauce | 11.95

Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina Stimatum 9.00

Bright and juicy flavors of boysenberry and other wild fruits. Refreshing acidity holds it all together. Drink this wine with food that makes you think of summer.

flatbread
pesto pheta | zucchini | yellow squash | pickled red onion| roasted corn | smoked tomato vinaigrette | 8.95

Domaine des Rozets    Coteaux du Trincastin   France  7.50

Medium bodied, with delicate spicy notes, nice red fruit, and a touch of earthiness. If you like cotes du rhone, give this a swirl around the glass and see what you think.

six plates cheese plate
sliced apple | honey | fruit compote | mixed nuts | crostini | 11.95

Hill and Dale   Pinotage   Stellenbosch, South Africa   6.50

pinotage is a genetically engineered cross between pinot noir and cinsault.  not sure why anyone would choose cinsault, but it worked.  if you like leather, this is your wine.  some love this wine on its own, I need food.
