A WINE TO TRY

2012 Reichsrat von Buhl Pinot Noir Rosé

Pfalz, Germany

About $15 to $17

Dry and crisp

Goes with: Vegetable first courses, soups, salmon

Over here on the west coast, it’s already spring. Cherry and plum trees are covered in blooms. Time for rosé. And here’s a terrific one from Germany to usher in the season. Von Buhl winery in Pfalz produces this lovely Pinot Noir rosé. Pale salmon pink, it is crisp and dry, with soft, beautiful fruit and a silken texture. Have a glass before dinner, or with a light first course of marinated vegetables, a salad or poached salmon. I’d drink it with pad Thai, too.
