Bieler Père et Fils 2006 Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence Rosé, about $10

Spring can be trying, especially when it insists on teasing us with warm temperatures and gorgeous sunshine only to follow them days later with icy rain and snow. One wine that can handle both extremes is Bieler Père et Fils 2006 Rosé.

Sure, it's pink, but it's gutsy, with plenty enough sun-filled strawberry flavors to warm a gray day (and to match a spicy Indian curry). And yet it's also mouthwatering and bright, the sort of wine that would taste particularly delicious after a long hike on a warm, sunny day.
