Valentine's Day is the time to think pink, and this lovely, pale rose from California sparkling house Schramsberg pleases the palate at a reasonable price. Grapes for this Pinot Noir/Chardonnay blend were sourced from Napa, Mendocino, Sonoma and Marin counties. It offers aromas of flowers, red berry, apple and citrus. In the mouth, tiny bubbles burst with subtle flavors of strawberry, watermelon, raspberry and hints of bread. It has crisp acidity on a clean finish. Drink it with sushi, ceviche, grilled salmon, pate, mild cheeses, oysters, artichokes, simple pasta dishes and light meats. Buy it at: Rouses Uptown, Swirl Wine Market and Dorignac's. Drink it at: Irene's Cuisine and Cafe Adelaide and the Swizzle Stick Bar. — Brenda Maitland
