Velo Rose In Nyack Celebrates Fifth Anniversary

Last night I participated in a most wonderful "Wine Pairing" dinner presented at Velo Rose in Nyack in celebration of their fifth anniversary.  Wines were from Bouchaine Vineyards in Napa, California and Bouchaine's winemaker, Michael Richmond, was present to describe the wines and how they are produced along with my neighbor in South Nyack, Robert Fallon, who is regional sales manager for Bouchaine's.  

Chef/owner, Anthony DeVanzo, created a superb four-course menu around four different wines.
 Appetizer was a pan seared sea scallop on a potato pancake with a delicious Thai coconut broth topped with Wakame salad.  This was served with an cold glass of Bouchaine's "Estate Chardonnay 2010" with hints of citrus.
Next was a salad of Boston lettuce with Gorgonzola cheese, toasted almonds lightly drizzled with strawberry-balsamic dressing.  The salad course was accompanied by a light and very delectable Rose of Syrah from Rockin' H Vineyard 2012.
The main course was a Porcini dusted lamb chop with three cheese risotto and a Pinot Noir vinaigrette.  A Bouchaine's Pinot Noir 2009 was the perfect pairing!
And last, but not least, was an outrageously delicious dessert:  Peanut Butter Semifreddo smothered in chocolate fudge and sweet and salty caramel peanuts.  The dessert wine that was served, a chilled Bouche D'Or Late Harvest Chardonnay 2010, also came from the Bouchaine Vineyard and was a perfect contrast to the flavorful peanut butter, fudge, peanut dessert concoction.  
If you want to sample the wonderful menu at Velo Rose for yourself, I suggest you make reservations.  Phone:  845.353.7667.  Velo Rose is located at 12 North Broadway, Nyack, New York.   Open Tuesday thru Saturday for dinner only.
