Here’s everything you want from Merlot
and more. The supple approach gives
way to an almost time released array
of black currants, black cherries,
plummy mocha dusted minerals that
linger through the dense core and linger
through the long finish. Things only
get better from here.
In order to win friends and influence
people try this with antipasto, grilled or
roasted meat, poultry, meaty fish, and
young cow’s and sheep’s milk cheeses.
Partners Brian Duncan and Dan Sachs
have created one of Chicago’s premier
restaurants: BIN 36. A restaurant wine
bar and market featuring contemporary
American cuisine with an emphasis on
seasonal ingredients and wine pairing.
In the evenings, diners can enjoy
either the more casual Tavern dining
room or the intimate Cellar. Executive
Chef John Caputo creates a 50-selection
cheese menu as well as a prix fixe
Chef’s Tasting menu with wine pairings
that changes daily. Duncan and
Sachs’s vision of the quintessential
wine and dining experience became
a reality with BIN 36; here novice and
wine geek alike can embrace food and
wine from the earth to the table."
