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.

Best tempranillo I've had for $7. Nose is simple but pleasant with berry, vanilla and mineral. Full and round in the mouth, well structured, moderate acid and decent finish. Really simple, successful "International style" red wine with a tempranillo twist. Absolutely not interesting, elegant or sophisticated - but one of my first picks under $10.

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.

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.

Oh, tannin bomb. Oak, berry, black, rich on the nose. Jammy taut, veggie on the tongue. May be good for oily foods as it would cut through butter with its bitterness. Was priced at $10.99. Try it if you can get it for less.

I love this tempranillo so so so much. Awesome price, great backbone - holds its own without being overwhelming. One of my favorite wines that I purchase often. Try this!

The Ventoux apellation is essentially a Côtes du Rhône sub-region. The wines, consistent with the southern Rhône style, are produced mainly from Grenache and Syrah. Château Pesquié is composed of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. Helped along by 14% alcohol, the Grenache shows a typically strong red raspberry liqueur element. But the blend also brings pepper spice, black fruits and a ripe plum flavor. Medium bodied, clear and bright, with a refreshing purity of fruit, this wine represents real authenticity of place and grape. A great dinner wine with food compatibility rating as one of its top assets. Good concentration and lingering flavors.

The 2004 Pesquie Terrasses, a blend of 70% Grenache that is 60 years old and 30% Syrah that is 30 years old, all aged in barrel, is an amazing wine for an astonishingly low price. Deep ruby/purple with notes of truffle, tar, blackberry, and cassis, the wine is vibrant, full-bodied, lush, and ideal for drinking over the next 4-5 years. It is nearly too good to be true, and many people familiar with wine in that price range will be absolutely amazed by its sheer concentration and character, so be prepared.

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.

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.

Another of my favorite estates in the up-and-coming Cotes du Ventoux appellation, Pesquie's inexpensive 2009 Terrasses is a custom cuvee put together by American importer Eric Solomon. Composed of 70% Grenache (from 60-year-old vines) and 30% Syrah (from 30-year-old vines), aged in neutral oak, and bottled unfined and unfiltered, this 10,000-case cuvée hits every sweet spot on the palate. Tasting more like a Chateauneuf du Pape than an inexpensive Cotes du Ventoux, this dense ruby/purple-colored wine offers up scents of licorice, black cherries, raspberries, pepper, and meat juices. Medium to full-bodied with a structured, well-delineated mouthfeel, good freshness, a heady finish, and firm, but well-balanced tannins, it should drink nicely for 2-3 years.

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!
