A really great wine list with a small mark up. Good selection of Oregon pinot gris, pinot noir and chardonnay. Inexpensive French wines including Loire's. Helen Turley's wine for as little as $28. Nice glasses and wine buckets. Service is amateur was well intentioned. It would be great if some one or anyone knew anything at all about wine and how to serve it
The food is equal to the wine and makes for a great evening. Tuna, duck, lamb and sometimes the fillet mignon are worthy of a great pinot or a Bordeaux Some nice and reasonable Burgundies, red and white to pair up some good food. Kudos on great locally foraged wild mushrooms. Butter and mushrooms make all wine taste better
The problem is getting the service, kitchen and the wine to coordinate even a little bit. Someone should have a clue.
Desserts are worthy and fun, but, alas, no substantial dessert wines. I am sure someone in Sauternes or Barsac would offer up a bottle or even a Chennin Blanc would be nice. And don't start me about no cheese plate
But just go and enjoy the wine and hope a few pieces of the service fall together for you
