Del Frisco's Down Under: Celebrate The Global Release Of The 2008 Penfolds Grange Shiraz, Honored By The Wine Advocate With A Perfect Score Of 100, Exclusively At Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House On May 1

SOUTHLAKE, Texas, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- David O'Day, director of wine for Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, is thrilled to announce that the 2008 Penfolds Grange Shiraz, one of the wines most sought after by collectors around the world, will be released and served exclusively at Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak Houses on May 1 in advance of its global debut the following day.  The 2008 Penfolds Grange Shiraz was recently awarded a perfect 100-point rating by critic Lisa Perrotti-Brown of The Wine Advocate.  This is the first time since 1976 that The Wine Advocate, which has reviewed Penfolds Grange Shiraz annually since the 1960 vintage, has honored the wine with a 100-point rating. 



"In her review of the 2008 Penfolds Grange Shiraz, Lisa Perrotti-Brown described it as 'a wonderfully opulent and…magic vintage' and we're honored to be able to release it exclusively to our guests as a prized addition to our unparalleled wine list," said David O'Day, director of wine for Del Frisco's Restaurant Group.  "Our guests are sophisticated, knowledgeable and adventurous.  We are excited to be presented with the rare opportunity to host the exclusive US release of Penfolds Grange, demonstrating the synergy between Shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia through our unique dining experience."

Chefs from each of Del Frisco's 10 locations teamed to create a special five-course menu with dishes designed to showcase some of Penfolds' most prized wines.  In Boston, Charlotte, Dallas, Denver, Fort Worth, Houston, and Las Vegas the five-course Penfolds Grange Dinner at Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House will be $200/person, while in Chicago and Philadelphia it will be $250/person.  Only in New York, the dinner will be $295/person and will include a pairing with the 2003 Penfolds Grange Shiraz, poured from magnums. 

Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House is a contemporary steak house, with a see-and-be-seen buzz, bold and delicious cuisine, an award-winning wine list, and warm, genuine hospitality.  Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House is known for its prime steak – the top 2 – 3 percent of all meat in the U.S. market.   As Director of Wine, O'Day has carefully selected a staggering array of sought-after wines, creating a stand-out choice for power players with discerning taste who want the best wines to complement their prime steaks. 

O'Day has built relationships with vintners around the world, fully committed to continuing his wine education and that of his staff in order to surprise, delight and entertain guests.  The Grange style is the original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy, making this exclusive release of the 2008 vintage even more special.
