Roger featured several premium wines this Weekend. And of course there was teh nibbles… and a chance to peek through the now open wall and see the restaurant is taking shape.

Auroe Dezat Sancere | France
The robe is pale yellow, the nose typically citrus, with a touch of sweet acidity. The mouth is full, fruity, crunchy and well balanced. Website
Cost: $19.99

Evolution Red | Oregon
This blend is complex, big, juicy and nothing short of exquisite with Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Syrah and a splash of Evolution Lucky No. 9. It’s a friend to grilled meats, Italian red sauce dishes, pizza and even a fine ratatouille. In a nutshell, Evolution Big Time Red continues the evolution of Evolution. Another giant step forward in wine. Website

A la Carte Red | California
Dark red in color, the nose is full of gamey notes, blueberry and rhubarb pie. The palate is tangy with suggestive flavors of stewed huckleberry and currant. While expressive, this wine retains a firm backbone with bright acidity and a fine phenolic edge. Website
Cost: $13.99

Franklin Estate Isolation Ridge Shiraz | Austrailia
The Frankland River region is recognised as one of Australia’s finest shiraz growing regions. The Mediterranean climate of warm days and cold nights, combined with the unique ironstone soil found in our Isolation Ridge Vineyard produces shiraz of power, refinement and finesse. Our Isolation Ridge Vineyard Shiraz aims to capture all the quintessential fruit opulence, black pepper and spice notes for which the region has become renowned. Website

Ferrari Carano Siena 25th Anniversary 2015 | Alexander Valley, California
SIENA has delicious aromas of raspberry jam, bacon, maple, leather and cardamom spice. Flavors of sweet plums and cherries are followed by graham cracker with more plum on the finish. SIENA has supple tannins and a balanced mouthfeel with lively elegance and depth. SIENA pairs perfectly with savory Italian food, like pasta with flavorful tomato sauces or pizza. SIENA is also delicious with dishes like chicken cacciatore, duck salad with raspberries or oranges, or simply prosciutto on crostini bread. Website
