The hot weather isn't gone for good. Here's a wine to get you through the rest of summer.
This (relative) break in the weather isn't tricking me. I just know humidity is lurking around the corner. That's why John Johnson, who owns the Wine Rack (2632 Frankfort Ave.), has suggested a bottle of Domaine De Nizas Rose 2009 ($15.99), with its "raspberry and strawberry aromas, accented by soft floral notes." It's from the south of France, and it sounds refreshing. Here, listen to Johnson describe it: "On the palate, the red fruits burst through and are enhanced by subtle spices," he says. "Enjoy it with shellfish or seafood salads." And if you're not hungry? "Just somewhere in the shade works too," he says.
