It is very seldom that I make a posting of a dinner or event that is not open to the public. This is an exception as I feel I must report and congratulate all those concerned with an outstanding event at Losantiville Country Club. Last night, for the first time, in my memory, the Club put together a wine tasting with superb food pairings. I can not complement enough the people who arranged the evening and the kitchen staff who executed terrific food accompanyments for each wine.
Below are listed the wines and there accompanying dishes:

Albrecht cremate Rose-brie with Oregon peach chutney, Champagne grapes, strawberries, roasted pistachios and cashews, white cheddar bread sticks

Voss Sauvignon Blanc( Napa)- Kumamoto Humboldt Bay( CA)  raw oysters and fried Barron points Puget sound jumbo selects. Grilled diver scallops-tarragon with aioli-grapefruit and bing cherries

Tokara Chardonnay- Tuscan-style roasted game hen, grilled romaine and prosciutto and Asiago

Argyle Pinot reserve(Willamette valley)- almond crusted fresh Halibut stuffed with a salmon tartar beurre noir and served with smoked portabella and a wild mushroom risotto

Novelty Hill Cabernet- grilled Colorado lamb chop- fresh mint- caramelized potatoes gruyere- roasted haricot verte

Ramous pinto lbv Port- Chocolate dipped strawberries, truffles, (rich) chocolate torte and green apple ginger crisp and plums.

Once again Bravo to everyone who made this evening possible.
