Rose' of Merlot
Beautiful evening yesterday, clear, bright, and cool for July. I lit the grill and tossed on a rib-eye steak about an inch and a half thick. There was fresh corn, and some just picked salad greens tossed with an orange marmalade and lemon juice vinaigrette.
The wine of choice was the second bottle of Michel-Schlumberger rose' of Merlot, Le Flirt, pictured above with an echinacea flower. Lots of strawberries and cherries in both the nose and the taste, great acidity, and very little residual sugar. Dry and enticing and just plain fun to drink, and it went well with all the food.
$16 and 13.2% alcohol
