Delmonico Wine Dinner
Delmonico Las Vegas
Tasted February 15, 2009 by Clarkmeister with 362 views
Dinner for 29 with DaveR supplying a bunch of wine and Master Somm Kevin V helping us round out the list. Some truly amazing pairings were had and both the wine and food were outstanding. Good times.
Flight 1 - Wine list (14 notes)
The Champagne was served as a starter and the Maury brought up the rear. All other wines were in pairings of two, in order.
2006 Linne Calodo Nemesis
I hate Syrah, but man this was good, and paired tremendously with andouille crusted redfish. Silver medal winner for the night - wildly popular.
1999 Harlan Estate
A huge, bruising wine that is just massive and thick from the word go. It has trouble maintaining the assault through the finish, but thats more a sign of how huge the front is than a knock on the finish. I wish it were a little more subdued and balanced but this is no doubt a big tasty Napa cab.
The group chose this as the Bronze medal winner for the night.
2000 Harlan Estate
A little hot and not nearly as good as the 1999. Very gangly and disjointed to me. Time may yet pull it together.
