A few months ago, I selected a Pietra Santa Merlot from my cellar. It had probably been a few years since I had tasted a Pietra Santa red wine. I had frequently consumed their Pinot Grigio – an outstanding starter that goes so well with a summer afternoon cookout – but had not visited their reds in quite some time! I was pleasantly amazed at the flavor and balance that the wine exhibited. It was technically a perfect Merlot. I reached out to the sales person (who also happens to be my son) with a text telling him how much I was enjoying this Merlot. His response was that the whole line was drinking terrific and that we should taste through all of their offerings and plan a Pietra Santa Wine Dinner! So here we are!

Summer is upon us and The Carlton will be offering our Prime Rib Saturday’s again this year! While we offer Prime Rib every Saturday of the year, during July and August we offer it at the special price of $30! Slow roasted and specially seasoned Prime Rib is not found on many restaurant menus these days but it is a timeless tradition that is still savored by many of our guests!
