For the fourth course, Balaban's brought out a 2010 Rabicano Cabernet/Merlot Bordeaux Blend, which was smooth and perfectly paired with roasted venison tenderloin and fall vegetables in a demi reduction. For dessert, the 2010 Deux Chevaux Cabernet was presented with a dessert we really loved: triple-chocolate mousse.
Balaban's has wine dinners each month. On November 10 the featured vintner is Trefethen Family Vineyards. Call 636-449-6700 for reservations. You can learn more about Tamber Bey wines here.
