Zoom with Brennan’s Wine Director, Braithe Tidwell, and Arthur Murray, President of Flambeaux Wines, while they take you on a Virtual Wine Tasting.
DRINK LOCAL! New Orleans born and bred, three generations of the Murray family have come from the rich loam of the Mississippi River to the gravelly soil of the Dry Creek Valley to craft Flambeaux—limited production artisan wine celebrating the rich diversity of Sonoma County, California terroirs.
Balanced, bright, and elegant. A warm, toasty spice frames lemon curd and tropical fruit flavors, while notes of minerality add a facet of intrigue. Try with: fresh seafood (oysters, crab and lobster and halibut or sole), delicate pastas, or cream-based dishes.

2. Sonoma County Rosé 2019
BRAND NEW RELEASE! The 2019 Flambeaux Rosé bursts with bright and vibrant layers of juicy watermelon and strawberry flavor. Try with: spicy Thai shrimp or grilled seabass to provide a nice counterpoint to the dish without overpowering it. The verve of this wine adds a lightness that meshes well with lighter fare.
Rich and silky, bright and brooding—the newest vintage of Flambeaux Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a study of Cabernet Sauvignon's most classic and enduring qualities. Try with: Classically paired with aged steak or grilled meats, this wine also excels in its diversity of pairing. The brightness that shows through on the wine will cut through and balance out the fat in a number of dishes.
