Cuvee De Pena Red Wine, Vin De Pays Pyrenees Orientales, 2006

Unfiltered. 48% Grenache, 30% Carignan, 22% Syrah. The cooperative winery in Cases de Pene, a small village in the Roussillon region of southern France, goes by many names, but with its Catalan culture, most Americans simply call it Pena. A blend of Mediterranean varietals, Cuvee de Pena is a medium-bodied wine offering aromas of black cherries and light spicy, smoky notes with soft, silky tannins on the palate. It is the perfect pairing for everyday foods including pizza, pasta and burgers, as well as Mediterranean fare such as ratatouille, cassoulet and stuffed tomatoes. 14% alc./vol. Product of France.
