Sushi and wine: Salmon roll
The wine: Dry rosé
Pairing hint: Pink on pink—too fun to resist. But even if the colors didn’t match, the salmon makes the tart cherry and citrus in the wine pop and its minerality turn to sweet brininess.
Our pick: Bonny Doon 2009 “Vin Gris de Cigare” (Central Coast; $15). Watermelon, cherry, and raspberry, rounded with roses and spiked with lime.
