    Winemaker's Notes:

    This blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault grapes has produced a typical Rhône Valley style; full of fruit and spice aromas, it has soft tannins and good body.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 La Vieille Ferme Cotes du Ventoux red, which, like the white is aged totally in tank, is composed of 50% Grenache and the rest other grapes such as Carignan, Cinsault, and Syrah. It offers copious aromas of cherry fruit intermixed with peppery, spicy garrigue notes. A surprisingly flavorful, easygoing red, it provides tremendous relief to the beleaguered consumer looking for good quality at the $10 price point.

    Bright ruby. Lively red fruits and spices on the nose and in the mouth. Light-bodied and a bit jammy but shows good energy and clarity. Finishes clean and brisk, with lingering bitterness and a touch of cracked pepper. Given its production level and price, this wine's quality is most impressive. It's also available pretty much everywhere.

    Nice table wine. Not heavy, not too light. Took first taste after an Irish cheese and was worried about the quality. Second tast followed a garlic hummus and totally changed the flavor. Pair it with meat, garlic roasted anything. For the price twist the top and have it again tomorrow.

    This is a wine I've bought quite often to enjoy before or with dinner. It is so versitile - smooth, not too heavy, and pairs well with many foods. A friend of mine, who lived in France for many years, and has a very sophisticated palate for food and wine, had a glass at my house one evening. He inquired about the wine and said it was quite good - and was surprised to learn that it was priced under 8 dollars a bottle. I wasn't sure if he was being kind, until I saw that he recommended this to another friend as the red wine to serve at their wedding!
