Chateau de Pena Cuvée de Pena 2009

This stylish red wine is from the Rousillon district in the eastern French Pyrenees, near the city of Perpignan.  Cuvee de Peña’s designation is VDP des Pyrenees Orientales rather than Cotes de Rousillon.  Co-op wine.

The dusty red fruit and garrigue nose leads to a medium-bodied palate, with cherries, tobacco and soft tannins.  Balanced, decent finish,  At $7.99 retail, this is a great value.

Imported by Hand Picked Selections, Warrenton VA.
