12th Ave Grill Bordeaux Wine Dinner

12th Ave Grill will host its first wine dinner of the year on Monday, April 26th, featuring the power and complexity of wines from the Bordeaux region in France.

As the restaurant describes, "From clean and classic Sauvignon-Semillion blends to fruit driven, meaty yet silky tannins of Cabernet-Merlot to deeper blackberry and velvet textures, this region is a Chef’s delight."

Chef Kevin Hanney and chef Zach Most’s have created a menu fill of bold flavors to pair with these exceptional wines.

Here’s a look at the menu:

First Course
