We know that pairing the right wine with your dish can enhance your dining experience which is why we have asked our Wine Steward, Mark Jacklich, to share some of his recommendations.
One of Bentley’s new specials is Pan Roasted Smoked Duck Breast with Marsala Jus, Saffron Risotto and Grilled asparagus. Mark suggests pairing this dish with Stafford Hill 2011 Tempranillo.
Stafford Hill is a second label under Holloran Vineyard Wines, which is a winery in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA of West Salem. Stafford Hill use the same vineyard sources as well as the hand-on, traditional, small production regimen as Holloran Vineyard Wines.
This wine offers good weight in the mid-palate with out being over powering. The wine pairs well with this dish because it finishes dry with subtle nuances and depth on a lingering finish while offering a pleasant flavor contrast.
Bentley’s Grill has one of the most extensive selection of Oregon wines in our region. We hope you will come in and try this pairing, or check with Mark for other suggested pairings and ideas. Learn more about our wines in Wine Notes with Mark. Enjoy!
