The day before a holiday, you don't need to know that Rosé d'Anjou comes from France's Loire Valley.
Or that it's made primarily with the falling-out-of-favor Grolleau Noir grape whose high yield, high acidity, and low alcohol make it unsuitable for red wine production despite the crow-like coloring of its skin.
Or that a touch of residual sugar keeps the wine's searing acidity in check.
No, all you need to know is that you get a flavor reminiscent of forest-foraged raspberries for about $10 a bottle.
And that despite its foreign accent, Rosé d'Anjou isn't too posh to hang with the likes of baby back ribs and potato salad and coleslaw.
And that it will quench a powerful thirst in the time it takes you to unscrew its cap--yet won't leave you face-down in the kiddie pool after a couple of glasses.
You wouldn't want to miss the fireworks.
