Ample servings of nine rare and limited vintage varietals, hand-selected by a Master Sommelier and highly rated by renowned wine critic Robert Parker and Wine Spectator magazine – all for just $25 per person at dinner from July 12 through September 4.
The Generous Pour Wine Event is a tasting experience offered by The Capital Grille to rival all others. The event offers guests an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy generous tastings of nine spectacular, highly allocated wines – all served in the comfort of the restaurant’s relaxed, elegant atmosphere, accompanied by signature appetizers, dry-aged steaks, fresh seafood and house-made desserts.
The Capital Grille is also known for expert, personalized service and The Generous Pour event is an excellent example of that. Guests may sample all nine wines or they may choose to have multiple tastings of one or more of their favorites from The Generous Pour – their server will guide them through the experience, suggesting pairings for each course ordered and providing each person with a summary of tasting notes. The restaurant will also prepare custom wine flights upon request, for those guests interested in comparing and contrasting The Generous Pour selections.
The Generous Pour Wine Event introduces guests to some of the season’s newest wine trends, while also offering hard-to-find varietals as well as known favorites. Highlights from this summer’s chic collection of choice whites and reds are:
· Tarima Hill Monastrell, 2009 – Making its U.S. debut at The Capital Grille this summer, this spectacular varietal is setting a new standard for Spanish medium-bodied red wine.
· Chalk Hill Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, 2006 – Named for the volcanic chalk under the vineyard’s hillside surface, which gives a delightfully unique quality to the wine’s flavor, this rich, dense wine is one of Sonoma Valley’s best.
· Marquis de la Tour, NV – This sparkling “bubbly” hails from a vineyard in France’s Loire Valley, which has been producing excellence since 1885.
· Conte Brandolini Vistorta Merlot, 2006 – Harvested from 100-year-old vines in a small vineyard in Northeast Italy, this merlot epitomizes powerful elegance.
