Big time wining and dining with Chef Tim Byres

Just ask anyone who has been to the hip and happening Belmont Hotel and you’ll likely hear from a fan of Smoke. Tim Byres, formerly executive chef at Stephan Pyles, executive sous chef at the Mansion, and his own restaurant Standard certainly knows his way around the kitchen and loves to make great things happen with hardwood and smoke. You have an opportunity to get first-hand experience and a great wine dinner to boot if you join me on Thursday February 25th for the next “Dinner Club with Jim White” special event at Smoke.

Wine of the Week: O.T.P Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 February 22, 2010

If Zinfandel is traditionally considered the “workhorse” grape varietal of the California wine industry, then Cabernet Sauvignon (pronounced as Cab-air-nay So-vin-yawn) can be considered the “racehorse” grape varietal of the California wine industry.  Cabernet Sauvignon is consistently the world’s most popular red grape varietal and tends to offers explosive power and showmanship; however it can also sometimes be a little “edgy” in its youth. Cabernet Sauvignon classically found its place in Bordeaux, especially within the regions of Medoc and Graves, where it produces such world renowned wines as Chateau Margaux and Chateau Latour.  Generally, Cabernet Sauvignon can have a flavor profile of black currants, cassis, black cherry, black olives and plum.
