Medium red ruby in the glass. The nose shows dark red fruit, leather, and cotton candy. On the palate this really comes alive due to it's balanced acidity and showing of cherry, herbs and spice. A medium long finish. This was a totally different style than the rest of the wines in the flight and although most tasters went toward the robust CDP or Gigondas, the Terrasses held it's own and managed to finish as the favorite wine for two of the seven tasters.

No detailed notes but another fine performance from this great QPR. Big and muscular dark fruit tempered by a soft mouth feel that always pleases just about anyone I open this for.

Dark, deep ruby color. Nose is very inviting with spice cookies, fig, lead pencil, beef broth with a hint of skunk. Smooth, medium body. Blackberry fruit, spice and slightly herby. Nice amount of acidity that carries this win perfectly with or without food. Subtle yet present tannin mostly noticeable with the medium length finish. A great buy for the price.

This wine was the standout favorite at our tasting at work in early december. we went through 4 bottles. granted, half of one probably went to me, i mean, i ran the table, had to make sure the bottle wasnt corked first...maybe had to make sure a couple of extra times. great wine for 15 bucks. lots of character and enough depth to enjoy it on its own.

Just a great, everyday wine. Wonderful value. Lots of ripe fruit. Definite crowd pleaser. Inexpensive enough to serve at a get-together.

With each sip it becomes smoother and smoother. If the first taste wasn't appealing, take a second and third; it becomes exponentially better after the first glass. Superbly paired with steak.

Much ado about terroir, the '98 Pesquie is, in short, the flavor of a vineyard. Nicely balanced, no one component stands above another. So relax, enjoy the view from the balcony overlooking the vineyard, the sights, the sounds, and the smell of earth, wind, and well, in a word... terroir!

The 1995 Cuvée des Terrasses is an unfiltered offering made from 55% Syrah and 45% Grenache. The wine offers a bold, flamboyant, spicy, peppery, black raspberry and cherry-scented nose, delicious, juicy, fleshy-textured flavors, excellent purity, and a heady, glycerin-infused mouthfeel and finish. About 100% of this wine was aged on oak barrels. It should continue to drink well for 2-4 years.

The 2001 Les Terrasses is a remarkable offering from importer Eric Solomon, who personally put together this 9,000 case blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, all from vines over thirty years of age. Approximately one-third of it spent time in barrel. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of black fruits, spice, earth, and dazzling purity, and tremendous texture, this high-class, serious Côtes du Ventoux is supple enough to drink now yet possesses all the stuffing needed to age (possibly improve) for 4-6 years. Amazing stuff!

An amazing effort from one of Cotes de Ventoux's up-and-coming superstar producers, this non-oaked cuvee made from 60% Grenache (60-year-old vines) and 40% Syrah (40-year-old vines) boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with a fabulous nose of melted cassis intermixed with a touch of Provençal herbs and tomato skins. Also offering abundant glycerin, full body, and a pure, thick, juicy finish, this is an awesome wine for the price. Moreover, there are 7,000 cases available. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.

One of the top estates in the Cotes du Ventoux, Pesquie has been a project for importer Eric Solomon (who creates these custom cuvées for the American marketplace). There are 8,000 cases of the 2004 Cuvée des Terrasses, a blend of 70% Grenache (60-year old vines) and 30% Syrah (30-year old vines), that is aged in barrel (40%) and tank (60%). This knock-out value is a terrific bistro-styled, food-flexible offering with a huge spice and fruit profile. Smoky, roasted herb notes intermixed with black cherry jam, currant, plum, and spice box aromas jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, richly fruity red. Displaying a seamless integration of acidity and tannin, it should be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.

The unfined/unfiltered 2006 Les Terrasses Rouge, a custom cuvee made for American importer Eric Solomon, is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by a lovely bouquet of black currants, black cherries, licorice, smoke, roasted herbs, and melted licorice. Deep and full-bodied with velvety tannins, good acidity, and a long finish, this is a heck-of-a wine to drink over the next 4–5 years.
