Tasting Notes

At The Wine Bistro, we have carefully selected a list of unique, hand-crafted wines that pair well with our menu items. Looking for a perfect pairing? Here are some suggestions.

Prosecco, Fantinel with Bistro Crab Cakes

Produced by Marco Fantinel at his estate in Tauriano. Bright, lively, fresh and perfect for Holiday celebrations. The Prosecco grape produces a creamy-textured sparkling wine that perfectly complements our Bistro Crab Cakes.

Aglianico, Teodosio and Beef Short Ribs with Mushroom Risotto

The Teodosio vineyards are located in Barile, in the Italian region of Basilicata – on the side of a volcano: Mount Vulture. The vinification and storage (including one year in small oak casks) occurs inside 8 caves that were created in the 15th Century. This bottling is a pristine single-vineyard example of the ancient Aglianico grape, whose erratic and complicated history dates back to 79 a.d. The wine displays aromas of dried fruit, followed by rich, fiery flavors of field spices, cherry and plum. An excellent match with our beef short ribs.

Evolucio Furmint with the Bistro Crab Cakes

This Hungarian wine has lovely flavors of citrus, green apple and apricot that balance nicely with the light, fresh flavors of the crab cakes complimented by the orange marmalade whole grain mustard sauce.

Velvet Devil Merlot with the Winery Salad

This Washington Merlot has complex flavors of cherry, tobacco, anise and plum that will pair nicely with the dried cherries, bleu cheese and house-made balsamic vinaigrette of the salad.
