Linden and RDV Now Featured at the Roosevelt

Linden Vineyards VA Hardscrabble RedAccording to a press release, The Roosevelt in Church Hill recently added three highly-regarded wines to their all-Virginia wine list. As Virginia wine lovers well-know, Linden Vineyards’ Hardscrabble Red ($45) and RdV ($85) are both Bordeaux-style blends, while the RdV Rendezvouz ($45) is a Merlot-based blend finished with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. (Sounds like a Bordeaux blend to me! — ed.)

“It’s hard to find these wines anywhere, much less at these prices. We work to keep our wine selection as affordable as possible, at heart we’re a neighborhood joint”, says Roosevelt co-owner Kendra Feather.

Some menu from Chef Lee Gregory include Roasted Fennel and Oyster Stew, with smoked bacon, fennel pollen, and lemon oil; Scallops with apple and celery root puree and sausage butter sauce; and Braised Pork Cheeks with cheese grits, green cabbage, mushrooms, and mustard jus ($16). The Roosevelt is at 623 N.25th Street, Church Hill, Richmond. For reservations, call (804)658-1935. The Roosevelt
