American Wine Society Hahn Winemaker Dinner


The Las Vegas Chapter of the Amercian Wine Society had a Winemaker dinner hosted by Adam LaZarre Hahn Estates Winemaker at Cafe Blue. Even though Adam did not make it until after desert due to car problems a good time was had by all. Andy Ashbaugh Chairman of the Las Vegas Chapter gave Adam the new name of "Late Harvest LaZarre" when he finally arrived. The meal consisted of six courses paired with seven wines from Hahn Estates and Smith and Hook. Two of the favorites at my table were the Roasted Garlic Flan, Wild Mushroom Broth paired with 2005 Hahn Estates Syrah and the Three Chili Strip Steak, Guajillo-Congnac Sauce paired with 2005 Hahn Estates Meritage and 2005 Smith and Hook Cabernet Sauvigon. The other wines were Cycles Galdiator , Pinot Grigio 2005, 2005 Hahn Estates Chardonnay and Adam's 2005 La Zarre Pinot Noir " Sierra Madre ". We finished off with Grilled Pineapple with Rum Sabayon,Coconut Ice cream and Macadamia Brittle paired with 2002 Mendelson Muscat Canelli. Many thanks to the Chefs and students at Cafe Bleu and Andy Ashbaugh of AWS for doing a great job. And of course Adam LaZarre for finally making it !!
Cheers !!
