Charles & Charles 2012 Columbia Valley Rosé ($12)
Anchored by Syrah and crafted with other quintessential South-of-France grapes, Charles & Charles Rosé ($12) hails from Washington’s Columbia Valley. It’s a real head-turner: as balanced and elegant as a high-end import, but priced for any-night enjoyment. Bright beams of citrus shine through the generous red berries and cherries for a smooth, polished wine that’s refreshing—sans any sharp edges.
Dry rosés pair well with light, fresh, warm-weather foods. Try Charles & Charles Rosé with baked fish, sauteed scallops, salads or turkey sliders (all of which you can find below)
