Serves four to six

2 cups medium-bodied dry red wine, like gamay or Côtes du Rhône

¼ cup sugar

½ teaspoon grated lemon zest

Pinch grated nutmeg

½ teaspoon grated ginger

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

4 large ripe peaches or nectarines

¼ cup blackberries, for garnish (optional)

1. Put wine in a glass or stainless-steel bowl. Add sugar and stir to dissolve, then add lemon zest, nutmeg, ginger and black pepper. Chill well.

2. Peel peaches and cut into ½-inch wedges. Cover with plastic wrap and chill.

3. To serve, pour a third to a half-cup chilled wine mixture into four to six wide-mouthed wineglasses or coupes. Add sliced peaches to each glass, dividing them evenly. Garnish each portion with a few blackberries, if desired.
