Friday night dining pick: Long Shadows wine dinner tonight at Delta King

Published: Friday, Aug. 16, 2013 - 11:59 am

This week has ranked as an especially epic one in terms of high-end food and wine. Monday featured a guest chef dinner at Enotria featuring Dominique Crenn, the much celebrated two-star Michelin chef from San Francisco, that made for one of the most unique local dining experiences in recent memory. If you’ve still got some funds that can be dedicated toward fine dining, look into booking a table tonight for the Delta King’s wine dinner featuring Long Shadows.

Long Shadows of Washington state features a veritable all-star assembly of winemakers. Along its offerings: Long Shadows’ cabernet is made by Randy Dunn of Dunn Vineyards, the riesling comes from acclaimed German producer Armin Diel and a Bordeaux blend is crafted by Napa cult wine favorite Philippe Melka.

These fine wines and others from the Long Shadows line will be paired with a four course dinner prepared by chef Julian Vasquez, plus a selection of cheeses and appetizers. For the point chasers out there, each of tonight’s wines have scored at least 91 points by Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate.

Local sommelier and wine educator Matthew Lewis has helped bring this dinner together, which costs $99 per person (all food and wine included) and starts at 6:30 p.m. For reservations: (916) 379-5051.
