There are few places better suited for Cabernet Sauvignon than the Alexander Valley, which is why it’s become our signature wine. Warm summer days tempered by morning coastal fogs combine to help create a refined Cabernet that is at once approachable upon release, yet with the fortitude to develop with time. In the glass, the 2007 Estate Cabernet displays big aromas of black cherry, cassis, cocoa powder and plum and flavors of cassis, black cherry and plum along with soft, integrated tannins. This is certainly a great wine to serve with beef, whether braised short ribs or a Tuscan steak rubbed with olive oil and rosemary.

The Reuben Sandwich Challenge Scoring
Rated on 1 to 5-Stars, here is how we rate the several places in Boise that serve a Reuben Sandwich. 1-Star is enough for this year and a 5-Star is one that meets the criteria.

4. Seasons Bistro – Wow!! We’ve got a foot race. Homemade Russian Dressing, as was Cucina di Paolo. Good pastrami as was Cucina di Paolo. Great kraut that is special ordered and, in my opinion, better than Cucina di Paolo. Grilled onions. Good rye, that I actually tasted the caraway seed, although it was the Marbled Rye!!! I told Rachel Hurn, Owner, that I really would like to give her the 5-Stars for this sandwich, but I couldn’t. She asked, “Why?” And I told her, “No Jewish Kosher deli pickle.” She said she would go get me one. Too late. But, Rachael does know – as did Paul at Cucina di Paolo – the difference between a Reuben and a Rachael Sandwich. She has both on the menu!!!
Rating: 4½

Are we really closing in on “The Perfect Reuben Sandwich in Boise”? It looks like a difficult job, but someone has to find Boise’s Best. Or am I being a traditionalist? To coin a phrase, “It’s tradition!”, or so it’s been said. If I had a fiddle and if I could play it, I’d shout “It’s Tradition!” from the roof top. At this point in time, the Seasons Bistro (Eagle) and Cucina di Paolo (Boise) are taking the lead. They have set the bar pretty high. Cheers
