Juniper Restaurant

This is a modern-styled contemporary restaurant in the small village of Edwards, just south of Vail and Beaver Creek, Colorado. The food was very good, with the exception of the highly recommended baby back ribs, which seemed relatively tough and stringy. Everything else was delicious, with the veal scallopini with angel hair caprese outstanding. The simple wines included a pleasant, but uninspiring non-vintage Veuve-Clicquot Champagne, which seemed a bit more evolved than a bottle drunk several days before. René Rostaing's red wine from his Coteaux du Languedoc vineyard, the 2003 Puech Chaud Coteaux du Languedoc Syrah, was a pleasant, richly fruity, bistro red offering notes of wild garrigue intermixed with red and blackberry fruit, licorice, and pepper.
