WINE OF THE WEEK

2000 Domaine La Montagnette Cotes-du-Rhone ($10). This robust red wine from France's Rhone Valley offers excellent value and a thoroughly satisfying primal experience. It's an earthy, intensely flavorful wine with generous black-raspberry fruit and hints of smoked meat, herbs and chocolate. If you've been stuck in a California-merlot rut, this is the antidote for boring wine. Consume with red meat, pasta and a minimum of fuss.
