Pope Francis has said, before an audience of thousands, "There is no party without wine"—alluding to the wedding at Cana, where Jesus turned water into wine. Drink an Argentinean red in his honor: 2014 Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec ($21).

Buy a bottle of 2012 Pirate Treasured ($65)—the whimsical treasure map label belies the intensity of this red blend.
April 18: Tax Day
Until that refund comes in, stick to bargains like the 2011 Château Ollieux Romanis Corbières ($17).
