Wine Wednesday: Star chef Jean-George Vongerichten takes advantage of summer strawberries to make this perfect alfresco dessert. As the red wine–infused sorbet melts, it forms a tart sauce for the sweet, tender berries, which also get topped with crunchy bits of meringue, a splash of aged balsamic and fresh whipped cream.
