Tonight with hangar steak my wife and I drank a new 2007 Cotes de Rhone Village. The full name is about a foot long, and I'm going to call it "Champauvins" until someone tells me I'm getting it wrong. It's in stock and sells for 20 bucks.

Medium bodied. Four distinct flavors, all with decent intensity: Red fruit, dark red fruit, spice, funk.  The funk is the mildest and is apparent only after the wine opens up a bit. Good acidity. No tannin to speak of. Drink now because it's tasty, and hold a few back because its going to improve for a while. Grace A.

One night this past week we drank a bottle of unoaked Chardonnay provided by Karen Conery, our Winebow rep. If I can buy it a the right price, our customers are really going to love this.
