Best New Somm: Jill Davis, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House

As a sommelier at the Four Seasons Resort, Jill Davis’ curly locks and cutesy smile belied her undeniable cabernet cognoscence. The 28-year-old certainly walked the walk, but when she swirled, sniffed, swallowed, then talked the talk that oenophiles love, it didn’t go unnoticed. Adding more heat to her profile, this fall Davis will be recognized as one of Wine Enthusiast’s “40 Under 40,” saluting a new generation of trendsetting imbibers. The honor will undoubtedly give her new employers – Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House, opening very soon on I-Drive – an added cachet.
