Flat Iron & The Show

Flat Iron Steak, Grilled Hearts of Romain & French Bread paired with "The Show" Cabernet from "Three Thieves Winery," located in St. Helena, CA (lil North of Napa). The steak, which has some marbling, goes well with the Cabernet. This Cab is full bodied but not overpowering with tannin nor alcohol. It has some dark fruit on the nose, blueberry most prevalent, a smoky-oak mid palate and a nice fruit finish. $16

Grilling Hearts of Romain (cut in half) and French Bread. Lightly coat the lettuce w/ EVOO before grilling. Grille 3 to 4 minutes, just long enough for leaves to start wilting. And, 3 - 5 minutes on the bread. Bread has EVOO, lil Kosher salt and cracked black pepper & a "smidge" of dried Rosemary but "no parsley - sage - thyme." (Remember the song?) :-)
