Dow's Trademark Finest Reserve Porto ($17)

Ruby port is the bottom rung of the ladder in the Oporto region of Portugal, but this example is a cut above most of its peers. And who can afford vintage port on a regular basis? This is an unusually smooth ruby, sweet but not cloying, with flavors of chocolate, berry and spices. A good, affordable dessert wine for a cold winter's night.

Serve with --blue cheese, roasted nuts, chocolate desserts
