With it we had this Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon 2008. Very nice. Another medium-bodied, tannic, red-fruit wine. Very drinkable, even gulpable, table wine. It went great with the soup and it held up to the gravelly eight-grain bread that served as ballast with the soup.
(Thinking about the boys tonight. Tommy finished his first week at a new job and Tony is in the Blue Mountains in Australia.)
