Another Memorable Meal at the Harvest Vine

I recently had another delicious and memorable dinner out at the Harvest Vine.  I took some family from out of town so they could experience it.  The food is tapas style from the Basque region.  Click here to see my other post from the Harvest Vine from last summer.  Some of the items from that visit featured their seasonal summer menu, such as the Pimientos de Padrons- green peppers covered in sea salt.  The menu is always changing so its nice to come back and try new things.

To start, we were presented with the nightly pinxto- a red and golden beet soup.  Next, our bottle of wine arrived.  We ordered a 2011 Nexus Cosecha Ribera del Duero.  A delicious light red wine that went perfectly with our dinner.  We also ate bread and ash rubbed goat cheese with squash preserves and a blue cheese with candied walnuts.  Then the Remolachas arrived, a colorful beet salad with olive oil and sea salt.  Our waiter then surprised us with a 2008 Don PX Sherry to sip with our bleu cheese.  The sherry's a dessert wine that was syrupy sweet and not to my liking-but it was fun to try it.  He then served us the Tortilla Espanola which is a potato, onion omelet.  For another vegetable dish we ordered some cauliflower which was perfectly cooked and seasoned.  For our meat dishes we tried the Carrilleras de Vaca which is braised beef cheek with a puff pastry.  We also ate the Venado Grilled Venison and the Pato Confitado-duck leg Confit.  I loved all three dishes- each one was tender and delicious-very memorable.  Last but not least, we had some dessert.  We all shared two- the Santiago Lemon Tarte and the Pastel de Chocolate-Flourless Chocolate Cake with Espellette Ganache.  Can you say yum?  I loved every minute of our meal at the Harvest Vine and can't wait until next time.
