Hot and steamy here this evening but I found an antidote, a 2012 Chateau de Segries Tavel Rose'. The color was like a bouquet of neon roses and the bone dry wine had flavors of strawberries, tart cherries and a bit of saffron. There was a veal chop marinated in olive oil, lemon zest and juice, garlic, rosemary, thyme and red pepper flakes before being grilled to medium rare. A perfect summer meal with some rice and small salad.
