Morderee. Buy early for Thanksgiving.
Dm. de la Mordoree, Cotes-du-Rhone, 2006 at $11.99 (Grenache based) is juicy fruit fun and totally crazy. Crazy like that guy on the radio who yells about discounted mattresses. You can actually get this wine just about anywhere, though this happened to be one of the bottles I grabbed on my Wine Exchange spree in Orange last week (see the Magnien post below). This is generally my favorite Thanksgiving wine because our parents don't care what they are drinking and so we don't want to waste any money on them. Even though it's not Thanksgiving you may have noticed it's been unseasonable cold in LA the last few days (only in the high 60s for goddsake.) I grabbed a faux fireplace and this CDR and curled up with my new dog (who, incidentally, doesn't care for Morderee - but there's no accounting for taste.) We drank this with stuffed cabbage left overs. A cheap cheap night in!!!
As a side note you should never go out in public after eating cabbage.
P.S. For a few more bucks they make an even better wine from LIRAC. Ask for Kyle at Wine Exchange and he'll point you in the right direction.
