Regularly $19.99, it was offered (and accepted) at $17.99 when Danielle put together the mystery case.

Lovely depth. We have always liked Montepulciano and this one was especially nice … particularly after having been open for about 2 hours.

They say where there is a vineyard – there is civilization. So I figured I had to be somewhat civilized about the way I did the lamb roast. Just a little guy, weighing in at slightly over a pound. So the civilized part was simply salt/pepper/fresh rosemary and olive oil. Roasted veggies were leek, potatoes, Japanese Eggplant, yellow and orange pepper and some onion thrown in. Anna Olsen provided the inspiration for the date/goat cheese/pistachio salsa.
