1996 Chateau de la Chaize Brouilly ($14).

This racy red Beaujolais is well-represented on restaurant wine lists - even in some out-of-the-way locations. It doesn't offer the aromatic delights of some of Georges Duboef's Beaujolais wines, but there's plenty of raspberry-cherry flavor and a penetrating acidity that goes well with a variety of foods. This wine is a good compromise when you order steak and your companion orders, say, salmon. The optimal match would be something on the order of grilled chicken.
