Rioja: The red wines of Spain's most famous region always create an autumnal mood with their aromas of dried cherries and dusty leather (a little wine-geeky, we know). These savory notes are more defined in reserva and gran reserva bottlings, which spend several years at the winery before release; younger crianza and joven wines tend to be fruitier but still pair perfectly with fall ingredients. Try 2011 Rioja Bordon Reserva, 2009 Marques de Riscal Reserva, 2010 la Rioja Alta Vina Alberdi, Marques de Murrieta Reserva or Remelluri Lindes de Remelluri Vinedos de Labastida.
