ABOUT DALI WINE BAR & RESTAURANT:
Dali, named after surreal artist and accomplished food and wine gourmand Salvador Dali, opened to rave reviews and swept all local “Best of Awards” for 2008.  National press was quick to recognize this “one of a kind” wine bar with “where to eat now” features included in Bon Appetit, Food & Wine and the upcoming November issue of Travel + Leisure Magazine.  Appropriately located within the Dallas Arts District, Dali has become a casually chic haven for oenophiles searching for those hard to find “rare and rogue” wine selections of undisputable quality and high demand—complimented by uncompromising and exciting cuisine from Chef Harloff.  A picturesque patio of towering downtown architecture completes the Dali package of consummate wine and dining!

Dr. Revana’s love for both wine and the rich tradition and culture of winemaking led him first to develop his estate property in Napa Valley and then Alexana in Oregon’s Dundee Hills. Acclaimed Executive Chef Anthony Bombaci will prepare an exquisite four-course dinner to accompany Dr. Revana’s superior Cabernet Sauvignon that has gained status as among the best in Napa as well as his additional wines.  The Revana Vineyard wine dinner is Thursday, October 22nd.  7:00 pm reception and 7:30 pm dinner.

1st  course
Seared sea scallops, honeyed escabeche of citrus
and green apples
Alexana, Pinot Gris, Dundee Hills, OR, 2007

The 2007 Alexana Pinot Gris, embodies elegance, purity and balance. The wine has layers of creamy lushness followed by hints of minerality from the bedrocks on the property. The grape is beautifully expressed, stamped by the earth. Framed by bright acidity, Alexana explodes with fruits and lingers with vibrant structure that draws you back for more.

2nd course
Pan roasted duck breast, wild mushroom risotto
Alexana, Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills, OR, 2007

Classic Dundee Hills Pinot Noir exhibits elegant nuances of red fruit, herbal spice, subtle florals, and mineral framed within juicy texture.

Entrée
Grilled filet of beef, bittersweet chocolate, cipollini onions, dried
currant & pine nut sofrito
Revana, Cabernet Sauvignon, St Helena, CA, 2005

Dark ruby in color with deep aromas of black cherry, coca powder, toast, and spice. On the palate it is very elegant and silky with bright purity of fruit and medium body. The cherry flavors echo the aromas. Nice mid-palate texture without a trace of raw tannins. Good length at this tasting which will only get better with time in the bottle. Oak is used only as an accent here and adds to the layering of flavor components and complexity.

Dessert
Regina blu cheese, pears, rosemary
Revana, Cabernet Sauvignon, St. Helena, CA (Library Selection)

Nana is a restaurant with an inimitable sense of luxury and wonder, where its service, panoramic view of the city, and upscale American cuisine created by internationally-acclaimed Executive Chef Anthony Bombaci are simply astonishing.  Hours are Sunday through Thursday from 6pm – 10pm and Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm – 10:30pm.  Nana is located on the 27th floor of the Hilton Anatole Hotel at 2201 Stemmons Freeway, Dallas, TX  75207.  Reservations are available by calling 214.761.7470.   www.nanarestaurant

Experience The Legendary Wines Of Caymus
Expertly Paired with an Exceptional Four Course Dinner
Thursday, October 29th, 2009 – 6:30pm
2501 N. Houston St., Dallas

$79 per guest

Victory Tavern City Grille is hosting a Four Course Dinner paired with the excellent wines of Caymus Vineyards. Victory Tavern Chef Jim Oetting and Kurt Baumgartner, Fine Wine Specialist for Republic National Beverage, will be on hand to guide you through this exceptional dining experience and answer your questions about the Caymus wines.
Caymus founder Charlie Wagner took the name Caymus from the Mexican land grant known as Rancho Caymus, given to George Yount in 1836, which included what eventually became the Napa Valley towns of Rutherford and Yountville. The winery’s 60-plus acres of estate Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley’s Rutherford District continue to form the foundation of Caymus Cabernets. Caymus has made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon every year since its founding in 1972, and now focuses entirely on this variety. Both the Napa Valley and the Special Select Cabernet continue to earn high accolades year after year.
Their Conundrum brand became an independent entity in 2001 and continues to produce the spectacular white wine blend. Made from Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Muscat Canelli, and small amounts of Sémillon and Viognier, the wine presents a flavor “Conundrum” of texture and flavors.
We hope that you will join us for this exceptional event!
