Filet Mignon’s Perfect Pairing:
Montinore Estate Willamette Valley Reserve Pinot Noir 
Sizzles with steak:
Lashings of dark fruit characterize this gratifying Reserve cuvee, including aromas of marionberry jam, black cherry, cedar, baking spice and a hint of smoke that introduce the rich palate of black plum, a hint of meatiness, freshly tilled earth and a continuation of baking spice. The spirited finish is a result of lithe tannin and balanced acidity.

Chocolate’s Perfect Pairing: 
Burmester Sotto Voce 
Ruby Reserve Porto 
A vibrant ruby colour with a violet rim. A wine of great aromatic elegance, it reveals a magnificent nose of ripe wild berries.
