Sip a Multi-Layered Pinot Noir- La Crema, Monterey, California
La Crema offers multi-layered flavors of red, blue and black berry fruit as well as plums, cherries and a hint of blood orange with subtle layers of exotic spice and toast. When you choose this pinot noir, you’ll enjoy aromas of red cherry, raspberry, pomegranate and sweet tobacco. The fine tannins provide a balanced acidity and drive a long finish.
Best Ruth’s Chris Menu Pairing: Shrimp & Grits or Chocolate Sin Cake
Enjoy the Complex Notes of a Malbec- Bodega Catena Zapata, “Catena,” Vista Flores, Mendoza, Argentina
A glass of this Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec shows a saturated dark violet color with ruby reflection. The aroma is cassis, blueberries and violets, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on one hand with gripping, lightly saline flavors of mocha, dark berries, spice, and minerals on the other. It has a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.
Best Ruth’s Chris Menu Pairing: Filet or Salmon
Savor a Lush Merlot- Duckhorn, Napa Valley, California
This Duckhorn Merlot brings the most intense aromas of ripe cherry, plum and black fig underscored by hints of leather and cedar. On the palate, it is lush and supple, with bright acidity and velvety tannins supporting layers of raspberry and black cherry, as well as hints of coffee and chocolate that carry through on the long finish.
Best Ruth’s Chris Menu Pairing: Osso Bucco Ravioli or Pork Chop
Experience a Refined Cabernet Sauvignon- Educated Guess, North Coast, California
This wine shows good concentration in color, flavor and texture. It is deep and dark, with ripe, jam-like tones of blackberry and black cherry. It has significant baking-spice elements which add complexity, plus fine-grained tannins and a thick texture.
Best Ruth’s Chris Menu Pairing: Lamb Chops or Ribeye
Relish an Exotic Shiraz- Barossa Valley Estate, Barossa Valley, Australia
The Barossa Valley Estate Shiraz offers an alluring exotic spice with vibrant flavors of red plum and fresh blackberry. This shiraz captures us with its striking presence, bold but elegant style and exotic accent, leaving an indelible impression.
