Which Wine Goes with What Dish?

Posted Date: January 5, 2012

As you peruse the menu at Paul Martin’s American Bistro or Paul Martin’s American Grill, you’re thinking “I would love a glass of wine, but…what wine goes best with what dish?”

For a starter or even a light lunch, try our Spinach Salad & Warm Bacon Dressing with the Viognier from Sobon Estate. This is a full bodied white with a tasty herbal finish, and just the right amount of acid for the rich bacon dressing with feta cheese and toasted California pistachios.

Sobon Estate wines emphasize high fruit and low tannins and are made with sustainably-grown grapes. They reflect the unique Shenandoah Valley terroir, resulting in a richness and intensity rarely seen elsewhere. The vines are not irrigated, and produce a small crop of intensely flavored grapes.  The wine has a very alluring aroma, reminiscent of fresh Sierra meadow flowers, with a hint of peach and honeysuckle.  The flavors are rich and spicy full bodied and richly textured with a long, lingering finish.

So come into one of our three locations (Roseville restaurant, El Segundo restaurant or Irvine restaurant), sit down, relax and enjoy our Spinach Salad with the Viognier award winning white, and as always it will be a generous 7oz pour!
