6:30 P.M.

Scampi Provencal
Broiled shrimp topped with a garlic, onions, roasted peppers, grape tomatoes, caper, Fontina cheese, fresh basil cream sauce.
2005 Santa Barbara Chardonnay, Santa Barbara County
Our 2005 Santa Barbara Chardonnay first brings a hearty citrus flavor with grapefruit and tangerine. The layers that follow bring more of the tropical flavors with hints of peach, banana and mango.

Baja Denali
Fresh strawberries, blackberries, mango with a date syrup dressing, over mixed greens with feta, pesto pine nuts and caramelized smoked salmon.
2006 Bountiful Blanc, Mencarini Vineyards, Lodi
The pale straw colored wine starts with your typical floral nose, characteristic of the Symphony varietal. After slight aeration, bright fruit flavors of apricot and freshly cut grass surround the glass reminiscent of summertime.

Thessalonica
Chicken stuffed with roasted red pepper, spinach, cream cheese, rubbed with a special B.B.Q., DCC dried rub, wrapped in bacon over orzo pasta with zucchini, red peppers, black beans, poblano peppers and basil pesto sauce, topped with a dried cherry-fig balsamic reduction.
2004 Abundantly Rich Red, Mencarini Vineyards, Lodi
The rich blend of old California varietals Zinfandel and Carignane leaves nothing to the imagination. This wine is loaded with intense fruity aromas of Bing cherries, plums and blackberries in contrast with chocolate and toasty aromas contributed by the judicious use of oak barrels. The mouth feel is full with soft, ripe tannins, and the finish is long and almost sweet without being sugary.

Ron Dino
2004 Old Vine Zinfandel, Mencarini Vineyards, Lodi
Our Old Vine Zinfandel surrounds the palate sound and sturdy, enveloped in spicy clove and juicy berry concentrate. Mature oak tannins frame a well balanced, sturdy wine with moderate alcohol that enhances the lengthy finish. We have created a wine to sit and think about.

$45 + tax & gratuity
