I am a little bit behind with this blog! I generally try to post in chronological order, but if I did that, I would have to catch up on five entries before arriving at last night. Therefore, I am skipping ahead for a brief post on Greek month at Screwtop Wine Bar! Let’s keep the Greek theme going!
First of all, the wine. We picked the Tetramythos Milia from Peloponnese, which includes the grape varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and some Kalavryta (a black grape… how cool!). This wine was incredible. So smooth, delicious standing alone, but then also fabulous with all the foods we chose as well. It had some lovely berry flavors come through on the finish, and was a little spicy too! Chris and I bought another bottle of it to take home on the way out. (It runs around $17 in the retail shop, so not too bad!)
We also tried a special this month, the Greek nachos! A lot of times I tend towards the more girly foods at Screwtop, so I’m glad we found a meaty snack that we were both excited about. These “nachos” were actually mini pitas that you could load with spicy lamb chili, feta, and green onions. Then, you could dip the whole lovely mess in Tzatziki sauce! WOW, we might have to go back again soon before this goes away!
Chris was especially excited about the dessert we ordered… it was all of his favorite things combined! The Prohibition Pecan Cake included chocolate cake (a “decadent” chocolate cake), Bourbon, bacon, and pecans. Incredible! It tasted like a glorified brownie sundae.
Thanks, as always, Screwtop! :)
