Dry rosés pair well with light, fresh, warm-weather foods.

Charles & Charles Rose

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)

Whole Rainbow Trout Baked in Foil

It’s easy to find farmed rainbow trout these days. They’re usually sold boned and butterflied, opened up with the two halves still attached. Spoon on the savory juice that accumulates inside the packets as they bake.


Cobb Salad

The classic Cobb Salad is back and as popular as it was when it first became a hit in the 1930s at the Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant.
