@Plate & Bottle Summer Dinner.

Main Course, Beef Skirt Steak, Roasted Tomato, Artichoke, Potato Mousseline. Steak has mash potato, roasted tomato relish, lemony artichoke purée with a smokey component.

Hedy is an amazingly, creative Chef.

Superb food & the wine pairing doesn’t suck as a friend of mine is famous for saying.

Stupidly good with hand made pizza and Mediterranean salad.

Sweet and sour dark cherries framed in dark fruits, layered baking spices and nice wood use.

Seriously hitting its stride with at least another ten years of good drinking ahead.

Dark & light sweet & sour cherries, strawberry hues, dark raspberries, silky limestone minerals, chalky on tongue. It's smooth elegant but simple. However, it did pair well with the spicy tomato sauce with sausage over linguini.

Classic brunello, dry red fruit, nice tannins, long finish. Could stand a little more time in bottle, but good now too
