EatBar Wine & Cheese Flight

Attended a meetup hosted by the VA Wine Club last night at EatBar which is connected to the very fashionable Tallula Restaurant in Arlington.

We're glad we went and we met some very nice people.

EatBar offers a great deal in their wine & cheese flight pairing. We had 3 Spanish wines: one white-the Nessa AlbariƱo 2005[YUM!] and two reds: an Arrocal 2005 and a Aramantes 2005. They were each very nice and interesting to compare-especially the two reds. Plus we got slices of three wonderful Spanish cheeses: a Mahon, a Manchego, and a Garrotxa, all of which were very good. They were paired for us and served with a fruit chutney of some sort (blueberries and raisins?) and toast points. Excellent! All for $10. Such a deal. And if the flight isn't your thing, Tallula, who partners with Planet Wine, boasts a rather extensive wine program featuring over 350 wines by the bottle and more than 65 wines available by the glass. Looking at the Tallula menu we're thinking we'll have to come back for a meal!
