Taste of the Best Wine Extravaganza Glitters

See also

Last night a well-heeled crowd gathered in the upper floor of the Chart House for Taste of the Best Wine Extravaganza. Guests were treated to extraordinary wines, football and basketball legends, and a million-dollar Hudson River view.
There was a variety of top tier wines available to sample from across the globe. The stand-out pour of the evening was provided from the private collection of Jay Rosen, of Washington Valley Cellars, who poured a magnum of 1998 St. Emilion. The Bordeaux was showing beautifully that night. A 2007 Il Poggione Brunello de Montalcino showed great potential to age, and there was a 1964 Faustino, as well as the acclaimed 2001, which is said to be the vintage of the 21st century for this wine.
Taste of the Best Wine Extravaganza, sponsored by Dom Perignon, raised funds for Hope for Children Foundation and Smile Design Gallery nonprofits. The evening included a silent auction of sports memorabilia, including a football signed by Eli Manning and a San Francisco Forty Niners helmet signed by Joe Montana. There was live jazz music featuring renowned bassist Bob Cranshaw.
From start to finish, it was a glittering evening of fine wine, food, sports, music, all with sweeping views of a sparkling skyline.
