2008 Domain Jean-marc Lafage Côté Sud, Vin de Pays Catalanes ($11.99 Whole Foods). Alcohol level: 14%. This is a blend of Grenache 50%, Syrah 30%, and Cabernet Sauvignon 20%. It had a plastic closure.

A bright, high-toned red wine on the eye, it is fruity on the nose and upfront. It crosses the palate with dark berry fruits, including black berries, blueberries, and cherries, with a pepper spice note. It has a touch of tannin on the long finish.

We matched it with broiled Australian lamb loin chops, sourdough biscuits, and a lemony salad. It hardly gets better for a Tuesday night!
