Salmon en Papillote with Coopers Hawk Katie Lee Biegel Rosé

February's #WinePW event focuses on pink wines, especially for Valentine's Day/  Thank you to our host Culinary Cam (https://www.culinarycam.com) for organizing this event.  If you want to learn more about pink wines, join us on Saturday at 10:00 a.m. Central Time on Threads.

My husband and I have been married for 47 years, so we know a thing or two about romantic dinners. We have eaten at some magnificent restaurants all over the world and had some of the best chefs cook for us on anniversaries, vacations, and other significant events. Let me tell you though, there is nothing like a homecooked meal made by your significant other.  Talk about love!

I cooked for our family for about 25 of those years and then Bob has taken over since then.  He is a marvelous cook and pays special attention to the details that matter when making a meal for the two of us.  This was so delicious, and paired with the Coopers Hawk Katie Lee Biegel Rose was a "chef's kiss."

The wine is a blend of 75% Syrah, 20% Grenache, and 5% Cinsault and is a pale pink.  On the tongue is Gua­va, water­mel­on, and straw­ber­ry fla­vors match with bright acid­i­ty, and a dry finish. On the nose is fresh and juicy.  There was enough acidity to brighten up the salmon dish and bring out the texture and herbs of the dish.  Why Katie Lee Biegel?  She's an American cookbook author, and a chef and has many accolades behind her name.  My favorite fun fact about her is that she was once married to Billy Joel.

Remarkable wine with a beautiful dish, one of our favorite things on Our Good Life.

  1. I absolutely love salmon and find that rose is often a nice pairing with it!

  2. A perfect dinner. I am not familiar with that wine from Cooper's Hawk. I will have to check it out next time we go.

  3. This sounds delicious! How lucky you are to have Chef Bob, to prepare such fabulous meals!

  4. Salmon is a favorite of ours. I will have to see if I can get that wine. Cheers. Thanks for joining me.

  5. Salmon is a standy in our house. We paired a rose with smoked salmon, but fresh sounds like a good match, too.
