Prosciutto Wrapped with Honey Whipped Ricotta & White Truffle Oil
Wild Mushroom Bruschetta with Goat Cheese & Micro Greens
Crispy Shrimp with Mustard Seed Vinegar & Marinated Local Tomatoes

Ponzi “Rosato” Pinot Noir Rose - Willamette Valley 2008
Strawberry cream, rose petal and ripe watermelon lead to mouth of pineapple, mandarin and bright, juicy yellow plum.
The sweetness is balanced by a finish of refreshing acidity.

Santa Julia - Cava - Brut Rose - Maipu NV
Made by Familia Zuccardi, from 100% Pinot Noir grapes grown on their Maipu vineyards outside of Mendoza. Elegant pink color, with violet hues, aromas of cherries and strawberries. Creamy and fresh in the mouth, well-balanced, with a long finish.

Second Course

Salad of Autumn Greens with Organic Bartlett Pear, Candied Walnuts, Dried Cherries
& Sonoma Goat Cheese in Brown Sugar-Cider Vinaigrette

Martinelli - Bella Vigna - Pinot Noir - Russian River Valley 2006
The wine is ripe on the attack, showing intense notes of black cherries, currants, and soft touches of blueberries and cedar. Flavors follow suit, adding spice, gorgeous purity, and a seamless texture. Aged in 75% new French oak for 10 months, the wine is then bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Third Course

Pan Seared Alaskan King Salmon on Truffled Potatoes & Pinot Reduction

Patz & Hall - Sonoma Coast - Pinot Noir 2007
Bright red fruit aromatics of cranberry and pomegranate, accentuated by seductive layers of Chambord, butter and cinnamon spice. Crisp, structured and with a lifted, mouthwatering finish, this wine seamlessly balances pure cranberry and cherry notes with classic acidity.

Patz & Hall - Hyde Vineyard - Carneros – Pinot Noir (Magnum) 2007
A profound expression of Pinot Noir that embodies all the reasons why Hyde, has earned its reputation as one of California’s grand cru vineyards. Big and rich with a palate of soft, coating tannins, while still displaying elegant acid balance, a core of minerality and a lithe, vibrant charm. Seductive aromas of cherry, kirsch and Bitter sweet chocolate, segue to red fruit flavors of raspberry, cranberry and framboise, with hints of char and cocoa.

Fourth Course

Braised Beef Short Rib with Caramelized Root Vegetables & Fingerling Potatoes

Flying Goat – Dijon Clones – Rio Vista Vineyard – Sta. Rita Hills – Pinot Noir 2007
Dark red color and deep crimson overtones. Black cherries and blackberries, a bit of bramble and hints of vanilla and chocolate mint swirling with leather nuances. The wine glides across the palate from entry to finish with more, dark berry fruit, traces of forest floor, a complex and layered mid-palate.

Dessert

Felchlin Chocolate Truffles

Hello Friends,
I am certain it is just as hard for you, as it is for me, to believe it is already November, yet here it is. The holidays are always such a wonderful time of the year for all of us. The feeling we experience by giving to those we love and to those who are in need cannot be replaced by any other action. So in an effort to make you all feel as good as possible, 32 East has joined forces with Pass the Wine.org to do some charitable giving. Pass the Wine is a wine driven charity that has developed a unique strategy to convert donated collectable wine into funding. They support several non-profit charities that benefit children directly. These charities help children in need of nutritional and educational support as well as victims of all types of abuse. In addition to the funding that you will raise through attending the dinner itself we will also have a silent auction, direct wine and cash donations all for the future development and support of children in need. If you have some great wines in your collection that you would like to donate to Pass the Wine, you can realize a tax deduction at the same time! Simply bring your wine with you the night of the event and leave with a tax deductable receipt! To learn more about Pass the Wine, please look at their web site at www.passthewine.org

Happy Holidays!
