Wine – Red Schooner Malbec by Caymus, Voyage #5, Mendoza/Napa
A unique and stellar example of Malbec. Made with grapes grown high in the Andes Mountains and produced using the same techniques as Caymus Cabernet. Bursting with concentrated flavors, elegantly refined, and singularly Caymus.
4th Course – Submarino – Chocolate Ganache, Warm Epresso-Laced Milk, Alfajores de Maizena
Wine – Masi Tupungato Malbec Passo Doble, Mendoza, Argentina
Argentinian soul; Venetian style. Malbec grapes refermented over dried Corvina grapes resulting in ripeness, power, and exuberance. Everything you’ve always wanted in a Malbec, plus much more!
