Each paired Plate $9

Radikon “S” Orange 2010
Pinot Grigio / Fruili, Italy / 92 points

“This wine is wild! 2 weeks on the skins and 1 year in wood. After some decanter time, the fruit gets fresher, offering a bright core of fresh red berries accented by just a little apple cider and lemon/grapefruit. There are also a lot of herbal and spice notes, and a distinct earthiness. It’s kind of like a very light red Burgundy. The palate is quite a ride, with great acidity and some very soft tannin. Overall, this is extremely complex, I love it. outstanding.”

Suggested Plate Pairings:
Squid – Chili Calamari ‘Noodles’ roasted with Chicharones on Cranberry Beans
Anise – Crosnes, Licorice Sunchokes, Fennel, Black and Watermelon Radishes, Sauvignon Blanc Foam

Descendientes De Jose Palacios Petalos 2011
Mencia Grape / Bierzo, Castilla Leon, Spain / 92 points

“…very aromatic and flowery (violets), almost heady, with clear notes of blueberries and licorice. The oak is perfectly integrated, almost imperceptible, a medium body, with a thick silky texture, is very tasty, with some acidic strawberry flavors. This could very well be the best Petalos produced to date.”

Zin – Grilled Steak with Blue Cheese and Zinfandel drizzle on Toasts
Coxinha – São Paulo style fried Oxtail filled Fritters, Chili Honey Sauce

Bodegas Ordonez Zerran 2011
Garnacha Blend / Montsant, Spain / 91 points
