Vignerons de Caractere Cotes du Rhone Villages 2007
To go with our Thanksgiving turkey we chose this red blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Shiraz, produced by a cooperative at the Southern end of the region. The grapes thus don't come from a single vineyard. Neverheless, this is a very nice wine, exhibiting a pleasing blend of plum, dark berry and chocolate, with just the right amount of tartness in the finish. Well worth the price of $9.49.
