5. Vecordia Ribera del Duero Joven
A tempranillo blend, this young Spanish red is medium bodied with fruity flavors of cherry and blackberry.
4. Castano Yecla Monastrell Rosado 2010
A nice rose for hot, sticky days, don't let the bright pink color deter you; this wine is dry, not one of those sweet talkers.
3. Francois Montand Blanc de Blanc
This sparkly wine is made in the same style as champagne, and does hail from France. It's semi-dry and tastes like apples and honey, only fizzy.
2. Chateau Belingard Bergerac Blanc 2010
A sauvignon blanc blend, this isn't a bold white, more of an easy drinking wine, with floral and citrus notes.
1. Chateau Bois Redon Bordeaux Superieur 2009
Food friendly, this red wine mimics more expensive wines from the region. Wine Spectator gave it 88 points, and we give it our gold star as well.
