The nose offers strawberries and oyster shells. More tart on the palate, it has strawberry-rhubarb with a chaser of cranberry. Oyster shells linger in the background throughout. A hint of lime lingers on the finish. Dry and very crisp, this would pair well with a lentil salad. Try this lentil salad with baked beets, spinach, and yogurt-mint dressing, from Food & Style. Recommended (88). DH
