Pinot seems to be all the rage for the past 10 years – and not just because of the movie 'Sideways.' The haunting, hard-to-grow wine has been called "sex in a glass" by master sommelier Madeline Triffon. That all makes it hard to find a good variety for a decent price – which is why we love Mark West. Its juicy notes of raspberry, nutmeg, and spice pair perfectly with a burger hot off the grill on a cool summer night. And if your wine shop sells it for more than $15 a bottle (some do), then find a new wine shop. [$10; markwestwines.com]
