    Tasting Tuesday Food Pairings

    Tuesdays, of course, are for “tasting” at Jet.  So, we offer you the option to build your own flight for $10, or try a half-glass for half-price.  Want to make it even better?  Add food to the mix.  Our new, summertime menu has 5 different bruschetta options to mix and match.  Get one or get them all.  And, pair them with your wine! Let’s see how this might work:

    Does the Tomato and Mozzarella with basil and olives sound good?  It does to me (and, well, it is good).  What about a wine?  I’d like this food with a white wine, because of the acidic tomatoes and the delicate cheese.  My choice would be the Savatiano, with its light, floral nose and crisp, apple mouth.  Hmm, but maybe the melon and green leaf flavor of the Albarino would taste better?  What to do?  Get a half glass of each!

    What if you want to pick the wines first?  No problem.  Let’s pick a flight of a red, a white, and a rose.  My choice would be "Ce Vin" for red, Retsina for white, and Raboso for our rose.  The red is full and rustic.  It would be wonderful with the spinach, mushroom, and goat cheese.  The retsina is unusual, strong, and lemony.  I’d pair it with the kalamata tapenade.  The Raboso has light bubbles with some chocolate dust, pomegranate, and strawberry.  Hmm. Let’s pair it with the prosciutto - why not, they are both Italian. 

    New Bruschetta options! Mix and a match a plate.

    • Spinach, Portabello, Goat Cheese
    • Tomato, Mozzarella, Basil, Olives
    • Pear, Onion, Gorgonzola
    • Kalamata Tapenade,
    • Prosciutto, Ricotta Salata, Roasted Pepper, Basil
