Murray's Cavemaster Reserve Annelies Burger paired with a full-bodied Napa Valley Pinot Noir

Murray's Cheese Bar

“The delicate grass-fed beef and caramel notes of the Annelies cheddar balance perfectly with the acidity and body found in Napa Valley Pinot Noir. I love the variety’s perfume and elegance—there is a certain roundness that comes from Napa’s versions that make this pairing really sing.” — Jamar Terry, Beverage Director

Instead of draping its perfectly medium-rare Ottomanelli’s beef-blend patty with the usual slice of melty cheese, Murray’s went with classic English rarebit—a thick cheddar-and-red-wine sauce—poured right on top. Beverage Director Jamar Terry recommends getting yours made with Cavemaster Reserve Annelies. The cheddar’s caramel notes work with the delicate raspberry, cherry, and strawberry aromas in Napa Valley Pinot Noir to highlight its ever-so-slight toasted character.
