Palm Desert Wine Bar Lets You be Sommelier for the Night
Choosing a bottle of wine to compliment your meal can be a challenge for even the most discerning oenophile-the 3rd Corner Wine Bar & Bistro turns that challenge into an adventure, where you get to play sommelier for the evening.
An array of wines from all over the world beckoned to be chosen, ranging from a Santa Barbara Pinot to a Spanish Tempranillo. The 3rd Corner won’t break the bank either. There seemed to be a bottle to fit just about every price range, and more than enough selections to compliment the wide array of cheeses and entrees that the menu offers.
We chose a 2005 Ojai Vineyard Syrah, an addicting wine full of smoke, dark fruit and tobacco with a smooth finish. The wine was perfect with my braised short ribs and was a nice compliment to my dining partner’s creamy and delicious truffled risotto.
The best part about the 3rd Corner is that it is open later than most places in the desert-just in case that itch for a late-night sip of Burgundy needs to be scratched.
