OK, this one is only in my dreams. But I was thinking the other day as we were bottling our next Bridge that the 2007 vintage was just phenomenal on so many levels. It got me thinking--yes, it was around lunchtime--that a dinner using on 2007 wines is just begging to be created.
I was thinking we could start with our 2007 Fanfare (the Gewurztraminer based wine with a good dose of Reserve Chardonnay in it.) This could go with some harvest style appetizers, and then maybe follow it with the 2007 Bridge and a hearty squash or goulash-style soup course.
Then we could serve Maryland crabcakes with our Reserve Chardonnay, followed by our Riesling and a nice salad with cranberries and goat cheese and walnuts. The main entree would have to be filet mignon covered with a nice reduction sauce with the 2007 Cadenza. Lastly, our 2007 Aria--still in barrels, but we could pull a sample--to go with a key lime creme brulee for dessert.
OK, again, this is only a dream, but a mighty tasty one at that. Anybody know any restaurants our there who are game?
