Grilled Swordfish with a Rosé of Pinot Noir

Banshee Rose of Pinot Noir, served with Grilled SwordfishI often go with pinot for substantial fish like swordfish and salmon. I sort of did that this time–served Grilled Swordfish and Garlic Soy Marinade with the 2013 Banshee Rosé of Pinot Noir from Sonoma County.  My tasting tweet on this one simply said “yum!” but I suppose I should attempt to elaborate. This rosé has enough body to stand up to this substantial grilled swordfish, with plenty of good fruit flavor of its own. As you might suspect, it had a nice refreshing quality one appreciates when it’s finally warm enough to get the grill going. I’ve also enjoyed the Banshee Pinot Noir, and have another bottle on hand. But I’m glad I went with the rosé for this first night of grilling, and will save that pinot for a time I have chicken or pork on the grill.
