The wine list at the Sacajawea is crafted with love. Book your table at Pompey’s Grill to discover the perfect pairings to go with any dish—that’s the personal touch that you just can’t fake. When you’re seated, ask your server what they recommend based on what you like and what you’re contemplating on the menu.Sure, we could sit you down with a list of dishes and tell you the perfect pairing, but the art of gourmet goes so much deeper than that. It’s all about the unique touch, the taste of a personalized recommendation that really makes the flavors pop. So ask your server, and they’ll help steer you in a bespoke direction to suit your tastes utterly.
But don’t worry, we won’t leave you wondering what the wine list here has in store. Just remember, all wines are subject to vintage and availability changes. And besides, we wouldn’t be able to resist tweaking and altering with the seasons as the dining menu changes, or we discover that too-good-to-miss vintage we never knew existed. But go ahead and prime your palate for these sips you don’t want to miss and take a look at a few of our favorites right now.
2015 Kistler “Les Noisetiers” Chardonnay
Kistler Vineyards produces a Chardonnay that derives its flavor from fertile soil, giving every ingredient soul. This soil-driven style of winemaking owes its roots to the traditions of Burgundy, brought to the new world by Steve Kistler to deliver this restaurant-exclusive wine to your table. This is a natural meal accompaniment; with bright acid levels and a defined structure, you’ll taste with each sip and bite. The core is built with the vivid flavors of grilled citrus and lemongrass, drawing from that signature acidity for a flavor profile to get excited about.
2016 Robert Biale “Black Chicken” Zinfandel
Any good wine has a good story behind it, and that goes for the Robert Biale “Black Chicken” as well. With roots in the prohibition spirit and Great Depression sticktoitiveness, this Napa-born Zin is sinfully delicious. This winery began as a family affair, the original side-hustle from back in the 40s. From there it has grown and expanded to the powerhouse brand it is today. You’ll find flavors filled with spices and fruity flair, layers of cherries, blackberries, black licorice, pepper notes, subtle toasted oak, and that silky mouth feel you’ll love to savor as it slips over your tongue.
2014 Opus One
Opus One is an exclusive winery, to say the least. Nestled in Napa, this operation has been on the scene since 1979, when the California wine capital was still in the relatively early stages of fine-wine domination. Even today, this is the apex of Napa wines, a sought-after flavor complex that you just have to taste to understand. But there’s a reason it’s been setting auction records nearly since its birth. The new world and the old world came together in this wine experience, the brainchild of Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Château Mouton Rothschild (Bordeaux), and Robert Mondavi of Napa. And the flavor fusion of this blend perfectly captures the magnum opus that a single-wine winery must put out there
