Featuring Hunter Glenn wines of Napa paired with a 9 course feast from Ava’s Kitchen & Bar

First & Second Course

Porchetta di Testa; burnt honey, boubon pickled mustard seeds, Ava’s bread

Tenderloin; fennel & orange rubbed, pork fat potato hash, blackberry preserve

Hunter Glenn Estate Chardonnay 2017; This wine beams pale yellow inside and out. First aromatic impressions are of lemon curd and fresh pressed apples, followed by wet river rock, jasmine and beeswax. On the palate, tart Granny Smith apples, a perfect crème anglaise, and light note of saline.

Third & Fourth Course

Shoulder Confit Raviolis; sweet corn, cracked peas, pork consommé, cacciocavallo

End of Summer Sausage; parsley, smoked provolone, pickled peppers & onions

Hunter Glenn Red Blend 2016; This vintage is a deep scarlet red that lends to its refined elegance. Aromas of pink peppercorn, oregano and cherry cobbler brood from the glass, while a bouquet of fine cedar and bourbon vanilla prove perfect integration of oak. The first sip shows it’s a classic Napa Valley red wine, driven by Bing cherry, brûléed sugar, with hints of violet and cinnamon. Finishing with a dusting of dark cocoa.

Fifth & Sixth Course

12hr Brick Oven Braised Shank; house made blue corn tortillas, peach salsa, chili crema, assortment of pickles

Pressed Pork Belly; black garlic & chili braised, roasted fennel, crisp zucchini, pea relish

Hunter Glenn Cabernet Franc 2014; Dark ruby with a soft polish. The aromatic hints of muscovado sugar and black pepper intrigue your senses to dive deeper, after swirling in your glass the subtle notes of lavender and fennel rise. On the palate the wine is most elegant with flavors of crème de cassis, bourbon coffee, and sweet mint. While a perfectly laid balance of tannins allow the finish to linger until the much awaited next sip.

Seventh & Eighth Course

Smoked Pork Collar; bobolink drum cheese, pickled summer berries, cracklings

Proscuitto Wrapped Boneless Loin Roast; wild arugula, corn marmalade, white peach gastrique

Hunter Glenn Syrah 2016; The color of finely polished mahogany, this is a luxurious Syrah to enjoy over and over. Sweet licorice and white pepper are what you notice first followed by smoky bacon and candied walnuts. The flavors on this wine are driven by a sarsaparilla backbone along with undertones of espresso and boysenberry.

Ninth Course/Dessert

Chocolate Chess Pie; leaf lard crust, whipped cream
