    Winemaker's Notes:

    A custom cuvee made for American importer Eric Solomon, is a blend of Grenache and Syrah. Its deepruby/purple hue is accompanied by a lovely bouquet of black currants.

    The Côtes du Ventoux region is characterized by alternating hills and valleys. To make the most of this exceptional terroir, grape growers and other farmers had to accomplish the colossal feat of building terraces into the steep hillsides, choosing especially well-protected, sunny locations.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Terrasses Rouge is a custom cuvee put together for importer Eric Solomon. Made from 60-year-old Grenache and 30-year-old Syrah, one-third is aged in small barrels and the rest in foudre and tank. I’m sure discounters will offer this cuvee for around $12 a bottle, which makes it a remarkable bargain. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of cassis, kirsch, lavender, pepper, and spice. The sweetness of the tannins, abundant glycerin, razor sharp focus, and wonderful depth make for a wine that transcends its humble price and bucolic appellation. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

    This is a little light-bodied and sharp right now, though it's rather smooth and fruity on the palate. In a few more years, it should mature into a great cuvee.
