With the label's Jasper Johns-like version of the American flag, this rose may be the wine best suited to the Fourth of July and a variety of picnic fare. Produced from 100 percent Syrah grapes sourced from Talcott Vineyards, it offers bouquets of delicate strawberry, watermelon and floral notes. On the palate, taste bright red berry fruit, minerality, lively acidity and a crisp finish. Drink it with barbecue, burgers, grilled fish, pork, fried chicken, boiled crawfish, salads and po-boys. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle, The Wine Seller, Habano's of Slidell Wine Cellar and the Mandeville Market and Deli. Drink it at: St. James Cheese Company, Three Muses and Louisiana Pizza Kitchen. — Brenda Maitland
