SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRINGS

Filet Mignon

The 2018 ISOSCELES is a bold wine with ripe fruit and attractive savory elements, which balance each other perfectly. This wine is rich and complex enough to be enjoyed on its own but is a perfect match with a classic filet mignon with traditional sides.

A thick, lean cut of filet mignon, topped with a butter quenelle and complemented by orange, red, and green garnishes.
