A Kobe Slider with a well-structured Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

City Vineyard

233 West Street, New York, 10013

“Power and structure are the hallmarks of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, and we chose one that has broad enough shoulders to cut through the richness of our burger. The wine’s red and black fruits play off the notes of caramelization and umami in the rich, luxurious Kobe beef. The gorgonzola dulce adds a hint of spice, and the caramelized shallot dressing adds a touch of sweetness to this delicious pairing.” — Christy Fuhrman, Beverage Director

From the team behind City Winery comes this equally cavernous Hudson River Park offering. Much like their SoHo location, the focus here is on the wine and the views. In other words, City Vineyard should be your weekend brunch go-to. Don’t miss the off-menu Kobe beef sliders—smothered with caramelized shallots and a Gorgonzola-Dolcetto sauce, these classically mouthwatering flavors work well with a structured, floral Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine’s bristling acidity stands up to the unctuous cheese sauce, while the slightly sweet fruit notes on the finish pair well with the nuttiness of the caramelized shallots.
