We're in full-swing al fresco mode now and when restaurants gain that extra seating, they can host more special events. One of the best of the 2014 summer will likely be the Caymus-Wagner Family wine dinner at Fresco on Wednesday night.

Chef Logen Crews is the latest in a stellar series of chefs at this tiny restaurant, one of the most charming in the city. To go with the release of the 40th anniversary 2012 wine from one of California's iconic wineries as inspiration, Crews will be striving to surpass himself. New releases of Belle Glos “Clark & Telephone” Vineyard Santa Barbara Pinot Noir 2013, the debut of Caymus Merlot project “Emmolo”, made by Chuck Wagner’s daughter Jenny and other yet-to-be-named wines are other likely pairings for Crews.

Caymus Vineyards is the only winery ever to win Wine Spectator’s prestigious “Wine of the Year” twice. It just so happens that 2012 was also an epic Napa Valley Cabernet vintage. Caymus produces two Cabernets Sauvignons–the "Napa Valley" and the famous "Special Selection," never produced in difficult years and made from the best barrels. The Special Selection routinely earns high scores–91 to 98–from Wine Spectator.

As I noted a few weeks ago, you will also have several chances to experience the wonder of Caymus several times in the next few days.

There are still a few seats left at Fresco. Call now: (801) 486-1300
