Course 1

Cambria Santa Maria Valley Rose paired with Insalata di Barbabietole

Red and golden roasted beets tossed in a lemon vinaigrette topped with candied walnuts and fried honey goat cheese.

Ripe red fruit characters dominate the aroma and flavor profiles. In the mouth, fresh strawberry, watermelon, and raspberry flavors are accented with a nice silky mouthfeel and a crisp and lively finish.

Course 2

Cambria Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay Clone 4 paired with Gamberoni alla Griglia

Grilled jumbo prawns seasoned with Mediterranean dressing served over lemon pepper risotto and drizzled with olive oil.

Bright and crisp with fresh citrus, apple and white peach fruit characters. The sur lees aging resulted in a slight fullness on the mid-palate that balances the elegant acidity of the wine.

Course 3

Cambria Santa Maria Valley Syrah paired with Costata di Manzo

Pan seared Ribeye, dry aged for 28 days, seasoned to perfection. Served with parmigiana roasted fingerling potatoes and topped with a demi glaze reduction sauce.

Deep, dark purple color; balanced flavors and aromas; nice full-bodied mouth feel. Coffee, chocolate, blueberries and raspberries dominate the nose and the taste. A rich and tasty Syrah.

Course 4

Cambria Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir Clone 4 paired with
Budino di Cioccolato

Semi-sweet homemade chocolate mousse served with amaretto cookies and fresh raspberries.

Clone 4 produces aromas & flavors of ripe grapes, cherries, pomegranates, cinnamon & sweet vanilla. The underlying earthy character is present and a silky texture in the mouth flows into a long vanilla and oak spice finish.
