     WINE By Chris and Tony :
     1) Xinomavro 2015 dry Greek rose, On Special for $12.99 a bottle, by DIOFILI Winery of Siatista,, with 13% alcohol by volume, this has some great color, some fine mouth-feel, charm, pleasure and taste, and great value, too!

     2) Cabernet Sauvignon from Western Australia's Margaret River, a 2012, $30.99, with 14% alcohol by volume, I sat outside years agon with winemaker Mike Kerrigan and Chris Piggott, then of the Country Vintners, and we really enjoyed this Cabernet, it was an older vintage, it improves slowly and greatly with age, a fine food wine now that will only get better. What a grand treat!
