Wines from the Rhone region can be a good value. CdP is usually mostly Grenache grape, but is blended.

For good cheap daily drinker, try St James Basket Press http://www.thewinebowgroup.com/our-b...t-press-rouge/

Excellent crowd pleasing wine for like $10 and unique in that it is made from a blend of different vintages in a solera system like Sherry wine. Bottles age fine with screw cap. Had one that was like 5 years old and was equally as fun.
