For the fourth course, Balaban's brought out a 2010 Rabicano Cabernet/Merlot Bordeaux Blend, which was smooth and perfectly paired with roasted venison tenderloin and fall vegetables in a demi reduction. For dessert, the 2010 Deux Chevaux Cabernet was presented with a dessert we really loved: triple-chocolate mousse.
