Cuvee de Pena

2003 Cuvee de Pena ($9) -- French Vin de Pays des Pyrenees-Orientales. This may be the best Vin de Pays I have found so far. I couldn't find much info on it but it is produced in the South West corner of France right next to Spain (which may explain why I think this wine has a lot of stuff for the money).

The wine is made by the Cellier Agly Cooperative from the Cotes de Roussillon-Village. The 2003 vintage is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Mourvedre. Big smokey aromas and flavors with lingering finish. It has been a favorite value wine for Mr. Parker. I agree! And if you buy it by the case, it is only about $8 per bottle.

Next up is a 3 liter box for about $20.
