Share Article

The Reno PeppermillÂ?s White Orchid Wine Series of 2005 kicks-off on Monday, Jan. 24 featuring a very special line-up of 2001 Cabernet Sauvignons.

Chef Roger Morris has created a menu that will highlight these highly-rated wines, all of which achieved scores of 93 points or above from Wine Spectator magazine.

It begins with a 6:30 pm reception featuring Kumamoto Oysters with Sevruga Caviar, paired with J. Schram Sparkling Wine. Dinner follows at 7 pm with a first course of chilled Tartar of filet mignon with potato crisps served with Whitehall Lane Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (93 points), a consistently high award winner. An intermezzo course of Bartlett pear sorbetto with fennel jus will cleanse the palate.

The main course is sliced prime New York strip loin with Cabernet essence, cheddar scalloped potatoes and creamy spinach.

This course is paired with four of Napa Valley’s most esteemed wines, a Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (93 points), Duckhorn Vineyards “Estate Grown” Cabernet Sauvignon (94 points), Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (94 points) and Caymus Napa Valley Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon (95 points).

The main course will be followed by a ruby tomato salad with grilled balsamic onions and Maytag blue cheese. The evening ends on a higher note with a dessert of Valhrona dark chocolate lava torte with a chocolate cigar, paired with Pride Mountain Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (96 points), one of Napa’s most hard to come by wines. To finish the evening the White Orchid will serve chocolate truffles with freshly pressed coffee.

The cost for this special wine dinner is $150 per guest. To make reservations or for more information, please call (775) 689-7300.
