If you have any doubts about global warming, here's evidence of its existence: a fully ripe, delicious red wine from up north in Germany. Dornfelder is a red grape that typically produces much weaker wine and trocken is the German word for "dry." This wine is simply delicious — not heavy but full of intense cherry and wild berry flavor. It's comparable in style to a medium-bodied Burgundy, with a nice touch of earthiness.

From: Rheinhessen, Germany

Price: $18

Serve with: Pork roast, poultry, grilled tuna
