NASHVILLE, Tenn. – City Winery Nashville’s winemaking team, led by winemaker Bill Anton, has released three new wines, all aged and bottled in downtown Nashville.
2016 Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon – Napa Valley, CA
This quintessential Napa Cab offers a combination of vibrant cherry and vanilla, along with gentle notes of mahogany and spice.
2017 Centennial Chardonnay – Scopus Vineyard, Sonoma, CA
With notes of lemon and a crisp, delightful finish, this wine offers a fantastic balance of acidity and fruit. The Centennial Chardonnay pairs great with spicy Mediterranean fare, and fish tacos with a squeeze of lemon.
2016 Capital Cabernet Franc – Alder Springs Vineyard, Mendocino County, CA
Bursting with rich flavors of blackberry and tobacco, this Cabernet Franc pairs perfectly with flank steak, rich buttery potatoes and your favorite cigar.
The new summer menus have also been rolled out, highlighting seasonal ingredients and flavors influenced by the regions where many of the urban winery’s grapes are sourced—including Mediterranean, Italian, French, Spanish and Middle Eastern cuisines.
Guests dining in the Barrel Room Restaurant & Wine Bar can choose from a delicious selection of summertime dishes, such as the Spring Farro Risotto made with zucchini, summer squash, pea leaves and tomato; the Porchetta with chevré smashed potatoes, frisée herb vinaigrette, cherry and grape jelly; Ravioli and Bay Scallops made with lemon and basil ricotta, arugula pesto and Gifford’s bacon; and Mussels and Beer served with pilsner, Gifford’s bacon, chow-chow and grilled bread.
For dessert, diners can indulge in a Rocky Road Pizza made with milk chocolate ganache, toasted almonds, marshmallows and a bourbon caramel; Meyer Lemon Cake served with blackberry sorbet, lemon curd and mint; or a Red Wine Chocolate Cake with white chocolate buttercream, ganache and truffle.
New concert menu items include a variety of small plates, including Wild Mushroom Risotto Balls and Braised Duck Tacos with guacamatillo salsa and cabbage salad, as well as a selection of seasonal cheeses and charcuterie boards.
