This hearty red wine from Argentina offers an abundance of smooth ripe, fruit and has the virtue of being widely available at a moderate price — sometimes on sale for $10 or less. Not especially complex, it nevertheless delivers appealing blackberry, chocolate and peppery flavors and is ready to drink now. It's a great choice for a backyard barbecue.
