LEGENDARY CABERNET DINNER
Legends of Cabernet Dinner - SOLD OUT
Sunday, September 13, 2020 | $2,500 per couple
The unique evening will feature 24 bottles of rare wines specially selected to create an experience that is not only unique, but also impossible to repeat.
Eight guests will taste cult and rare Cabernets - some of the very finest produced in California, such as Screaming Eagle and Harlan - plus rare Bordeaux, including first growth Chateau Mouton, Lafite, and Cheval Blanc, and perhaps the finest wine produced by second growth Pauillac, Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou. Each wine has received an "outstanding" rating of 94 to 100 points from Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator magazine, Antonio Galloni's Vinous, or wine critic James Suckling for Decanter magazine.
Artemis Food Catering & Events, a Classic Wines Auction favorite, will prepare a multi-course feast designed to complement the Rawlinsons' wines.
