Vinos de Madrid doesn’t actually mean this comes from the Spanish capital. The grapes, old-vine garnacha, are grown about an hour west of the city, and the wine is absolutely delicious: juicy yet tannic, with good acidity and minerality. Bring on the roasted meats.

Each bottle was chosen with an eye to the season, with most tending to be a little heftier in texture and warmer in character.

This luscious blend of grenache, syrah and mourvère is a quintessential southern Rhône reminiscent of the era before so many of the wines turned into fruit bombs. Dry, well structured and absolutely delicious, it conjures up images of log fires and roasted meats. Contrast it with the Ermitage du Pic St.-Loup: same grapes, different places.

Bourgogne Passetoutgrain is a wine intended for thirst-quenching early drinking. It also belies the notion that Burgundy must always be made of a single grape. Red Passetoutgrain must be a blended wine, generally one-third pinot noir to two-thirds gamay, but this pretty wine from an excellent producer is almost 90 percent pinot noir. It smells like rose petals and tastes of sweet red fruit, with a core of minerals. For gulping. (Photo: Tony Cenicola/The New York Times)

6 Intriguing Wines To Drink This Fall

Belying its flowery name and the stereotype of easygoing Beaujolais, good Fleurie is often a structured wine that takes a few years to come around. Christal, unlike Alain Coudert’s longer-lived cuvées, is soft and delightfully accessible. It’s beautifully floral, with a center of earthy red fruit. (Photo: Tony Cenicola/The New York Times)

This rosé sparkler (technically not a cava because the producer does not use the term) is bone-dry and ultra-refreshing. It’s pale ruby in color and made of 60 percent xarello, the genre’s most distinctive grape, and 40 percent pinot noir, a Champagne grape that has encroached in cava country. No matter: This has the light, lacy texture of good cava and plenty of flavor. (Photo: Tony Cenicola/The New York Times)

This is straightforward, delicious Chianti, without pretense or polish. Who can’t use that? It’s made almost entirely of sangiovese, with a little canaiolo and colorino added, and offers firm, pure flavors of flowers, cherries and earth, with firm tannins that grip pleasantly as you swallow.
