Reservas from Spain's Rioja are aged in oak for at least three years, resulting in deeply concentrated wines that are terrific with steak. The 2007 Conde de Valdemar Reserva and the 2009 Muga Reserva are good, affordable choices.
Grilled Shrimp with Black-Eyed Peas and Chimichurri
Pairing: Juicy rosé
Warm-climate rosés tend to have juicy, bold fruit that is superb with the sweetness of grilled shrimp. Try the 2013 Moulin de Gassac Guilhem from the south of France, or the 2013 Montes Cheru from Chile.
