Cote de Rhone at TJ's in Westfield

Bought a bottle of a very nice (and dry) tasting Cote de Rhone...very inexpensive...maybe $5.99 or $6.99? forgot to write down the name and now for the life of me I can't remember it. It was a short and stout bottle...to the effect that it would not fit in your standard wine bag. sound familiar to anyone?
Thanks!

      Here are 3 of the Cotes du Rhone wines TJ's usually carries:

      Perrin Cotes du Rhone Reserve
      Les Moirets Cotes du Rhone
      J. Vidal-Fleury Cotes du Rhone

      The Perrin and the Vidal-Fleury are both good values, but come in regularly shaped wine bottles. I do not know about the shape of the Les Moirets' bottle.

        Phewy, me without my Order Guide. Short bottle, burnt orange label: Caves de Papes Fourelet or something close. Really good seller in my store. I'll check tomorrow when I go in.

          Saw another interesting bottle at TJ called Lance Windmill Petite Syrah.
          Selling for $15 and claiming it is normally a $60 bottle.
          Apparently made by Quixote wines.
          I can't find enough on this to decide if I want to blow $15 even though I like PS.
          I can't help but think it wasn't good enough for Quixote to sell it under their label so they unloaded it to TJs.
