Anyone who follows this column even remotely knows I’m an unrepentant fan of Rosé wines. I love them for their overall lightness and versatility. And, while I usually think of Rosé as summertime sipping wine, our recent warm weather is well-suited to Rosé. And, for what it's worth, the French drink it all year 'round. 

For a sunny taste of southern France, I recommend trying Whispering Angel ($18.99) from Caves D'Esclans Sacha Lichine in Côtes de Provence. It's a peachy-salmon-colored Rosé with notes of sweet strawberry, raspberry and cherry, yet it's completely dry with a solid acidity and a long, clean finish. Whispering Angel partners will with a wide range of foods, from simple roasted chicken or seafood dishes to spicy Thai, Indian and Vietnamese flavors. It's also sensational with sushi.
