“You’re here!” Isabelle danced up to them in delight, carrying a glass of fuchsia liquid, which she thrust at Clary.
“Have some of this!”
Clary squinted at it. “Is it going to turn me into a rodent?”
“Where is the trust? I think it’s strawberry juice,” Isabelle said. “Anyways, it’s yummy. Jace?” She offered him the glass.
“I am a man,” he told her, “and men do not consume pink beverages. Get thee gone, woman, and bring me something brown.”
“Brown?” Isabelle made a face.
“Brown is a manly color,” said Jace”

Château dAquéria Tavel Rosé wine from Rhone France on a cobalt Mexican table Château dAquéria Tavel Rosé 2011 We have nothing against bourbon, but Wine Harlots are here to tell you, real men drink pink. Dry rosés rock. The Château d’Aquéria Tavel Rosé is a compelling fuchsia (manly, not sweet sixteen pink) that’s crisp and bright with subtle red fruit and earthiness, the Château d’Aquéria Tavel Rosé ain’t your grandma’s rosé. Sophisticated and smart, Wine Harlots love pairing it with barbeque, and rosés are excellent paired with shellfish, or try the unusual (and unusually delicious) Strawberry & Leek Quesadilla from Eat Boutique. The music match for a classic rosé is “Strawberry Fields Forever” by The Beatles. 

The details: 14% alcohol. Cork closure. Appellation: Tavel. Grapes: Grenache 45%, Syrah 14%, Clairette 12%, Cinsault 12%, Mourvèdre 10%, Bourboulenc 6%, Picpoul 1%. Actual retail ranges from $12-19 USD. Imported by Kobrand. The wine was a sample provided for editorial consideration.
