Sip your way through over 130 years of history with one of Napa’s oldest wineries,
Freemark Abbey, over five incredible courses. And for the first time, we’re pairing
our sizzling steak with not one, but two spectacular Cabernets: one from Rutherford
AVA and one from Napa Valley. It’s a one-night-only, first-time-ever pairing you won’t want to miss.

Our main course is accompanied by two distinct California Cabernets that blend nicely
with the buttery flavors of the dish as a whole: the Napa and the Rutherford. The Napa is
a juicier, rounder Cabernet that complements the sizzling filet without being overpowering.
The Rutherford Cabernet, however, is known for its “dusty” quality, AVA produces Cabernets
with dry, firm tannins that pair well with the charred flavors of the onion jam and cauliflower.
