Tough night for one bottle of wine. The soup and salad really call for a white (how about a Viognier?); the meat courses could use a red with a little spiciness, like maybe a Chateauneuf du Pape or a Garnacha-based wine from Spain. A Syrah-Viognier blend from France or Australia would also be interesting. Many wines would work.
