Enjoy our feature this weekend of slow braised Elk short ribs with rosemary-stout mustard spaetzle, roasted delicata squash, grilled broccolini and and aronia berry-chokecherry drizzle.  A beautiful pairing is the Nine Hats Syrah, a full-bodied wine from Columbia Valley, Washington with a complex flavor profile that shows hints of sage and black olive tapenade along with dark cherry, blueberry and sweet spice.  Polished tannins sail across the palate while the 16 months spent in oak barrels rounds the flavor profile perfectly.
