2009 Sables d'Azur Rose 

Cotes de Provence, France / $15-$16 Retail

Dry southern French roses can be enjoyed year round, and they pair well with many traditional Thanksgiving dishes. This bottling is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, and it offers aromas of citrus zest, white peach and red berries. On the palate, taste strawberry, raspberry, watermelon, grapefruit, pleasing minerality and refreshing acidity. Drink it with sushi, tempura, oysters, foie gras, ratatouille, grilled fish, pork loin and hearty dishes like cassoulet. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle and Bacchanal. Drink it at: K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen, NOLA and Emeril's. — Brenda Maitland
