1st Course
Slow Roasted Salmon with French Herb Salsa

Wine-Commanderie de la Bargemone Rosé, France
“Rich in spice and red-currant fruits, the wine is fresh and crisp. With its good acidity and tangy backdrop, the wine is just now ready to drink. Organic.” 90 pts

2nd Course
Baked Greek Pastitsio

Wine-Skourus Zoe Red, Greece
“Delightful and fairly light red is vibrant and fresh with juicy red cherry and plum fruits. This is an easy drinking red that will pair well is a wide variety of foods and can even be served slightly chilled for dinners on warm summer nights.”

Lamb Meatballs with Pomegranate-Tomato Sauce
Chickpea-Rice Pilaf

Wine-Chateau Ksara “Le Prieure” Red, Lebanon
Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvèdre

“The grapes are hand-picked, harvested and destemmed. The Carignan is shortly vatted to keep the freshness, the Mourvèdre is kept for a longer time to extract the aroma and spices, and the Cabernet Sauvignon undergoes long skin contact to express length and elegance. The free flowing and press wine achieve the malolactic fermentation in cement vats. After malolactic fermentation, the juice rests in cement tanks for 14 to 18 months before blending.”
