Check this item off your party to-do list: deciding which wine pairs best with your meal. The answer is rosé!

All of her picks are $20 and under. So stop thinking, and start drinking!

Shop Talk

If you can't find one of these bottles, ask your wine store for a dry (not sweet) rosé that's light and fruity with a touch of acidity. Pink wines that capture that balance are meant to be paired with food, Jordan says. And try to buy vintages no older than 2010 -- though some rosés are made to last on the shelf, most lose their fruit flavors over time.
