Robert Parker said that "(Dan)Kravitz still has a knack for finding good wines at great prices”. And so he has with this super value from Southern France Made by the Penya Co-Op in Cases de Pene, a tiny village in the Roussillon region, just 30 miles north of the Spain. A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan that gets no new oak treatment so the varietal character is purely expressed. Parker's Wine Advocate scored it 91 points saying "Also terrific, the ruby/purple 2014 Côtes Catalanes (52% Grenache, 36% Carignan and the rest Syrah, aged all in tank) offers lots of kirsch and darker berry fruit, spring flowers, pepper and violet notes to go with a medium-bodied, supple, forward, lively feel. Like the 2013, this is a rocking value to drink over the coming couple of years." A Steal!
