Peaches with Cava and Lemon Verbena

You can find lemon verbena plants at your local nursery. Some farmers' markets and specialty stores also sell fresh sprigs of it this time of year. If you can't find it, cook strips of lemon rind with the wine, and add 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind before serving. Cava is an affordable Spanish sparkling wine now widely available in this country.
