As the days grow shorter, the leaves change color, the temperature drops and the wind whips around you, you might be dreaming of summer holidays by the beach. Open a bottle of rosé and the memories come flooding back. The Crusher Rosé of Pinot Noir 2010 is a great pick with subtle flavors of strawberry and red grapefruit. The perfect pairing is roast chicken – or a great match for the Thanksgiving turkey. The music match is “Sweet Memory” by Melody Gardot from the album Worrisome Heart.
