Carneros, California / $30 Retail

One of the most highly regarded domestic rosés, Domaine Carneros is a beautiful blend of 58 percent Pinot Noir and 42 percent Chardonnay. Formerly available only at the winery, this blushing brut rosé charms with subtle aromas of strawberry, apple, baked brioche and floral notes. On the palate, expect refreshing, zesty flavors of raspberry, orange, a hint of peach, lively minerality and lemony acidity. The elegant and complex sparkling wine is great as an aperitif and with a variety of foods such as rich seafood dishes, smoked salmon, roast or fried turkey, yams, cranberry sauce, oyster dressing and desserts. Buy it at: The Wine Seller. Drink it at: Restaurant August, M Bistro, Muriel"s Jackson Square and Obelisk Wine Bar and Art Gallery. — Brenda Maitland
