The Generous Pour 2016, Capital Grille‘s annual summer wine event, is a tribute to some of the boldest risk-taking winemakers in the world and the unforgettable wines that set new benchmarks in wine production.
From July 11 – September 4, diners can taste all seven wines or unlimited pours of their favorite varietals for a mere $28 per person with dinner. The Generous Pour 2016 features seven outstanding wines that honor this year’s theme of Rebels, Rule Breakers & Game Changers.
Stellina di Notte Pinot Grigio – this bright lively white is the result of a unique partnership of American innovation and traditional Italian winemaking. Created in the foothills of the Italian Alps – home to the most famous Pinot Grigio in the world.
Tasting Notes: A splash of Chardonnay contributes to the flavors of fresh citrus and green pear, with notes of white flower.
Provenance Sauvignon Blanc – A gamble on growing white grapes in the traditionally red region of Rutherford, California paid off big. Experience what is possible the finest expression of Sauvignon Blanc in the Napa Valley.
Tasting Notes: A clean, polished beauty featuring intense flavors of tropical fruit and citrus, with floral and mineral notes.
Chateau St. Jean, Robert Young Vineyard Chardonnay – In 1975, this bold winery did the unthinkable; they produced a Chardonnay from a single vineyard. Enjoy this benchmark wine from the renowned Alexander Valley before or with dinner.
Tasting Notes: Distinctive, Robert Young Vineyard aromas of bright citrus and ripe stone fruit with flavors of nectarine, lemon, toasted almonds, and baking spice.
Lyric By Etude Pinot Noir – produced by winemakers who in 1982 had the rebellious determination to grow one of the world’s most unforgiving grapes, while being one of the first wineries to adapt their winemaking technique and philosophy to suit the land. Don’t miss what most consider the finest and truest expression of Santa Barbara Pinot Noir.
Tasting Notes: Elegant and silky, presenting flavors of ripe cherry and red raspberry with hints of cinnamon, cardamom, sandalwood, and cola.
Penfolds Bin 2 Shiraz Blend – In 1951, the Penfolds winery set out to create a world-class red to rival the finest in Erope, forever altering the landscape of Australian wine. Enjoy Penfolds Bin 2, from the winery that made Australian Shiraz famous, and remains the standard today.
Tasting Notes: Nota shy wine, it presents savory aromas of smoke, paprika, and star anise, as well as flavors of plush fruits and dark chocolate.
Stags’ Leap, The Leap Cabernet Sauvignon – From the first California winery that named a growing region, enjoy a Stags’ Leap wine normally only available in the estate’s tasting room. “The Leap” is yours to truly enjoy exclusively at The Capital Grille during this special event.
Tasting Notes: Intense and finessed, with flavors of blackberry, cassis, and cranberry enhanced by notes of black pepper, cedar, coffee, and cocoa.
Beaulieu Vineyard, Tapestry Cabernet Blend – A bold decision in 1938 to use French oak barrels resulted in California’s first “cult” Cabernet. Since 1990, Tapestry has consistently been one of the finest examples of a Bordeaux blend in the Napa Valley.
Tasting Notes: Rich and chewy, layered and complex, with flavors of blackberries, black currant, and a hint of truffle.
