Château Pesquié Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Ventoux Terrasses 2005

Member Review by zufrieden:

Taking the good Chậteau Pesquié people at their collective word(s), I aged this wine to nearly the full recommended period (5 years). The results were good: here we have a wine with a menthol and medicinal nose with perhaps a bit of garrigue (if poetic license is stretched a bit). More garrigue and cherries on entry with muted tannins and a nice, clean medium finish. Good value in Ventoux.

Excellent wine for the price! Gorgeous nose loaded w/ dark cerry fruit. Cedar and garrigue on the palate. Nice long finish.
