For the "Everything Must Be Organic" Cook
Quivira, Wine Creek Ranch Grenache, California, 2009 ($26)
This small Sonoma winery has been turning out top-notch biodynamic and organic wines for almost a decade. Hints of pepper and spice frame their lively grenache. Although this red is easy on tannins, it's still hefty enough to pair with a beef stew or roast duck.
