HOMIES EATIN’ EPISODE TWO PART ONE- WINES FOR STEAK

Our second installment of  Homies Eatin’.  We get together, cook man meals and learn about wine and food from industry pros.  Chef Eric Lorden owner of Passports Restaurant and Toby Pett who has been around a bottle or two of wine will edumacate us in a casual setting.

Part I The Wine-

Toby Pett Selects Wine To Pair With Ribeye Steaks

We performed a blind taste test between three wines Toby picked out-

Wine A-2008 Lang & Reed “214″ Cabernet Franc

Wine B-2008 Frank family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine C-2010 Domaine Virginie Thunevin Bordeaux

The wine we all independently agreed to be the finest selection with the steak was purchased at Savour Wine and Cheese

    Thanks for super fun new series. Toby has an awesome range of knowledge. Thanks for sharing Toby–coming from someone who buys wine on how pretty is the wine label—which, as you can imagine, is not a fool-proof method!

  2. Just wanted to say “thanks” for the amazing video you produced on pairing wine with steak. (Everyone goes for the Cabernet Sauvignon – but Cab Franc is the way to go with steak that is cooked medium rare to medium). The wine all diners chose to go with the beautifully grilled, medium-rare steak is the pride of Lang and Reed in Napa Valley, CA, “Two-Fourteen,” named after the clone taken from a vine grown in the Loire Valley and reproduced in California.
    I wanted to let you know that I reached out to Tracey Stupny (owner of Lang and Reed with her husband, John). Their wine is very special, as John and Tracey Stupny reveal in this description from their website, “This new world (California) climate combined with this old world Loire Clone 214 provides the basis for a unique and immensely gratifying presentation of the Cabernet Franc grape. Lang & Reed ‘Two-Fourteen’ expresses what we believe is our highest achievement in creating a wine made exclusively from Cabernet Franc that represents the only known bottling of this unique clone in California to date.” (After viewing your video, maybe John and Tracey will agree to do a tasting and wine dinner with us at Savour and Beach Gourmet?)
    For all those readers of GMG, if you are interested in purchasing some of this very unique wine, there are two cases of the Lang and Reed Two-Fourteen Cabernet Franc in the state. We were able to obtain both, and they will be in Savour Thursday afternoon. (By the way, finding unusual, stellar wines is something we do at Savour every day). In addition to the Lang and Reed, I have a whole selection of Cabernet Francs, which are also THEE reds wines for pairing with salads and green vegetables. (We are doing a free tasting on August 20, 5-7 p.m., featuring that pairing). We do these food and wine-pairing tastings every third Tuesday. The food, wine and informal “education” is all free. What could be better? AND – Savour is having a 15% off everything sale this week for our email customers, who received a coupon. Anyone not on our list can just mention that they “saw it on the GMG blog” and they can get the discount once they give us their email. Thanks again for another great shout out for Savour Wine and Cheese!
