One of the perks to being in The Club, is being invited to Members Only events. One such event was held at Cuvee Restaurant, in Carlton, OR, in June.
Here, Rick and I are toasting a really fun evening!
The Second Course, was a chilled Asparagus Soup with Creme Fraiche, served with MLH Sauvignon Blanc. The wine's slightly citrus flavor didn't over power the soup, and I could see this wine as a favorite with seafood, or summer salads.
The next course was a light Green Salad with Sesame Oil Vinaigrette and Smoked Trout, paired with a Heritage Cuvee Pinot Noir
I was was having such a good time, I didn't realize this wonderful Cornish Game Hen dish with mushrooms and a reduced wine sauce was next! It was absolutely delicious, even the next day! It was paired with a Vintners Select Estate Pinot Noir. This is Arborbrook's Premier wine and has a fruity flavor, enhanced by a spicy overlay. They didn't make much of it, only 125 cases, and will age for 10 or more years. It was wonderful, and I hope we have a bottle in our collection!
Kudos to Dave and Mary, and chef, Gilbert Henry for a night of amazing wine and good food! We had a great time and look forward to the Arborbrook July Picnic this summer! Also, in addition to the great wine, we're looking forward to more fun Club Events!
