DRINK Domaine de Saint Antoine Rosé 2010: This rosé comes from the eastern portion of the Languedoc region of France. It is a touch older than most rosé, but the wonderful fruit in the nose proves that these wines can be aged. Made mostly with grenache and syrah grapes, this wine would pair wonderfully with smoked fish during a weekend of watching the leaves on the North Shore. —John Farrell III // Available for $10 at Haskell’s.
