I have been enjoying a "Charles Shaw" "vin nouveau" which is what they have to call "Beaujolais" Gamay grapes grown here in California. It is excellent, and like all of Charles Shaw wines, only $1.99 a bottle. The label nickname is "2 buck Chuck." They buy surplus, and also offer advance money to growers in financial difficulty.

Then sell very cheap.

Last night I opened a bottle of their 2011 Cabernet. It hadn't been in the bottle long enough to stain the cork. It was rough, but good enough to cellar a case.
