Tonight: Who let the dogs in?

The answer: Opus, 2575 West Main Street in Littleton, where chef Michael Long is hosting tonight's wine dinner featuring Cru Vin Dogs vintages.

Dinner starts at 6:30, and guests will help blend the winery's newest red wine; tickets are $79. Here's the menu:

At the reception: oysters with smoked salmon, duck prosciutto and watermelon; beef tenderloin and pineapple brochettes; crabcakes with pecans. Paired with Deviation Road Brut 2008.

Second course: sea scallops -- both carpaccio of Maine and pan-fried diver scallops -- and an asparagus-endive salad, paired with Greyhound Sauvignon Blanc 2008.

Third course: steak-and-potato soup, a confit of fingerling potatoes topped with seared ribeye capella, finished with a blend of Yukon Gold puree and creamed leeks; paired with blended-at-the-table wines from 2008.

Fourth course: fennel-glazed spring quail with cabernet-tossed market berries, quinoa and spring ratatoille, paired with the Portrait Series "Lucky" Cabernet-Merlot from 2006.

Final course: buttermilk blue cheese and a deconstructed glass of red wine, paired with the Best in Show Pinot Noir 2007.
