1999 Haywood Merlot, Vintner's Select ($10). This lush, chunky California red wine might not please French-oriented purists, but it will have immense crowd appeal for regular folks. It's a soft-textured, exceptionally fruity wine with jammy flavors of blackberry, black cherry and plums. Complex it's not, but that upfront fruit just reaches out, grabs you and twirls you around. It's a fine choice to serve with hamburgers hot off the grill.
