An event I look forward to every summer at the Capital Grille is their Generous Pour. This year, Master Sommelier George Miliotes (whom I’ve enjoyed meeting at Court of Master Sommelier classes and wine events) has selected 7 remarkable wines for guests to try with their meal, try as many as you like, or all of them, then pick your favorite(s) for only $28! This year’s event is a tribute to “Rebels, Rule Breakers, and Game Changers” who have positively impacted and changed winemaking in different parts of the world by taking risks by doing things that had not been done before.

The highlight of this year’s tasting for is the Stag’s Leap Winery Cabernet “The Leap,” something typically only available in the estate’s tasting room. It pairs beautifully with Capital Grille’s dry-aged steaks! Stag’s Leap Winery is the first California winery that named a growing region. This wine is intense with flavors of blackberry, cassis, coffee, cedar, currant, blueberry, blackberry, cranberry, black pepper, and cocoa!

Other wines featured are:

Stellina di Notte Pinot Grigio, a unique Italian wine that adds a touch of Chardonnay to give it flavors of fresh citrus, green pear, and notes of white flowers.

Provenance Sauvignon Blanc from Rutherford (Napa), CA, a clean, refreshing white perfect for summer by the pool with tropical fruit, citrus, floral, and minerality.

Chateau St. Jean Robert Young Vineyard Chardonnay from Alexander Valley, the first California winery to produce Chardonnay from a single vineyard in 1975! Featuring ripe stone fruit, citrus, lemon, toasted almond, and baking spice, this is a rich classic California-style Chardonnay.

Etude- Lyric Pinot Noir: Back in 1982, the folks at Etude were determined to grow this unforgiving grape and were among the first wineries to adapt their winemaking technique and philosophy to suit the land. This is an excellent Santa Barbara Pinot, which is elegant, silky, and boasts flavors of ripe black cherry, cola, cinnamon, cardamom, and sandalwood.

Penfold’s Bin 2, a Shiraz blend from Australia produced by pioneer family in the Australian winemaking industry, which in 1951 set out to create world-class reds “Down Under” to rival the best in Europe. They succeeded and put Australia on the map as a significant wine region, and today produce the flagship “Grange” which typically sells for over $600 per bottle!

Beaulieu Vineyard Tapestry (Cabernet Blend): what began in 1938 as a bold decision to use French oak barrels instead of American oak resulted in California’s first “cult” Cabernet. Since 1990, Tapestry has been a premier example of a Bordeaux blend coming from Napa.
