Pair with grilled chicken, burgers, lamb and ribs.

2012 Herencia Altés Terra Alta Garnatxa Negra ($11) Importer Eric Solomon has teamed up with Spanish winemaker Nuria Altés to make this exceptional Grenache value.

2011 Palacios Remondo La Vendimia ($16) The high percentage of Grenache in the blend of this Rioja red creates a silkiness that works very well when chilled.

2012 Pierre Chermette Beaujolais ($16) Native yeasts, 
minimal filtration and little added sulfur give this basic Beaujolais astounding freshness and flavor intensity.

2009 Boroli Madonna di Como Dolcetto D’Alba ($17) Light-bodied yet full of flavor, Italy’s Dolcetto is an excellent summertime red—especially when it’s as good as this.

2010 Villa Maria Private Bin Pinot 
Noir ($20) This 
New Zealand Pinot
is so bright and juicy 
that the wine almost tastes better cold than 
at room temperature.
