Jimmy’s Filet Mignon Pairings
Red, dry wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Red Blends tend to pair very well with our Filet Mignon. Winning Drive’s “Corvus Corax” Cabernet Sauvignon and “Midnight Dreary” Red Wine present velvety tannins that complement the texture, flavor, and mouthfeel of a Jimmy’s filet. Touchdown!
Winning Drive – Corvus Corax – 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon – Napa Valley
The Raven. A perching predator fearless in habit and cunning with cognition. Scorched feathers and severing talons flock upon scavenged carnage. A clever trickster imitating and mocking its unexpecting prey. An ill omen, a prophecy, a heraldic symbol, a creator & protector. We are the unkindness. Winning Drive’s flagship Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic representation of the appellation’s preeminent varietal. Notes of black cherry, blackberry and plum are complemented by hits of toasted oak, dried currant and baking spice. Fine-grained tannins and ample brightness on the palate give way to a polished mouthfeel and exceptionally long finish.
Winning Drive – Midnight Dreary – 2018 Red Wine – Napa Valley
A blend of figurative language swirled into a descent of madness. Where we ponder, weak and weary. Tracing love and loss and undying devotion. Poe’s never-ending remembrance lives on in the spirit of the city and the team that is his namesake. The prophet Raven cries, Nevermore. Winning Drive’s proprietary red blend – from our award-winning winemaker Todd Heth – exhibits dark blackberry, bing cherry and plum notes perfectly into layers of coffee and tobacco. The finish is dry with long lasting berry fruit. Silky but firm tannins, this wine is enjoyable now but has the ability to age well in the cellar.
Crab Cake Pairings
There are few foods as particular to a state as crab cake is to Maryland. Perfect for any meal, the crab cake is an incredibly versatile food. With its crispy exterior and moist, savory interior, the crab cake pairs especially well with wine. Winning Drive’s “Festivus Maximus” Brut is crisp and dry and helps clear the palate with each bite making it a perfect match with a Jimmy’s crab cake. As another classic option, Chardonnay can be a perfect match or completely overwhelming. Winning Drive’s “Charm” Chardonnay is a completed pass as it is presented in a lighter Chablis-style with balance fruit and tarte acidity.
Winning Drive – Charm – 2019 Chardonnay – Napa Valley
The charm you won’t find on a bracelet. This charm grew from the rich history of this port town and now lives in the city of neighborhoods. Embrace the kindness and welcoming nature. Share the allure of the Purple city. Be more, never less. There is something special about homefield advantage, welcome to Baltimore, Hon. From the chalky soil of the Carneros region in southern Napa Valley, this gem exhibits lush green apple and bright grapefruit notes while dancing across your palate. This stunning wine is light and friendly with very subtle vanilla and pear blossom hints on the nose. Balanced fruit with tarte acidity makes this wine a classic example of Premium Napa Chardonnay.
Winning Drive – Festivus Maximus – Napa Valley Brut Sparkling – Méthode Champenoise
Superstitions are silly unless they work, right? World Champions once coined the phrase Festivus Maximus out of superstition. Seven straight wins later the team earned the right to call the post season whatever they wanted and the rest is history. Tis the season, every season. Winning Drive’s premium sparkling wine – meticulously and artfully made in the traditional champagne method – rivals anything found from the best Champagne houses in Épernay and Reims. Blended superbly from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this magnificent Napa Valley Brut exhibits rich fruit aromatics of strawberry and delicate white cherry that follows through to a creamy mid-palate accompanied with highlights of lime and wet minerality and a lingering vibrant finish.
