Probably my favorite value wine. At about $6/bottle, it's hard to beat. Nice blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, and Cinsault - great daily drinker. Read more

I keep this around a lighter table wine. The average cost is around $8 and has a nice rich nose that is rich with a slight spiciness. Read more

Cotes du Ventoux / France Rose / 88 Points Spring has sprung in the Metro D.C. area! All of us that have been cooped up all winter are dying to break out the charcoal and enjoy a nice dinner outside. This Rose, although inexpensive, provides a big bang for the buck. Most importantly, it is made in enormous quantity, which makes it widely available. This review is for the Rose'. I only mention this because La Vieille Ferme (The Old Farm), also makes a very nice budget red. This wine is not a connoisseur's wine by any stretch of the imagination. It is an everyday table wine. This is a blend of 50% Cinsault, 40% Grenache and 10% Syrah. Very nice, both flavor and price. Light pink in color, it oozes the scent of strawberry and bitter cherry. Although it smells sweet, it is a nicely balanced blend with good acidity and crisp flavors. The flavour of the wine reflects the nose. Light bodied, it delivers strawberry and cherry, with a pleasant finish. This wine is custom made for grilling everything from pork chops to sausage. It goes down easy, and will be enjoyed by all who partake. Don’t be put off by the screw top. Many of the budget wines are going in this direction to save cost. It is a perfect picnic wine; no need for a corkscrew. Value is a highly overused and misunderstood term as it relates to wine. A value wine is one that gives you more then you may expect for what you have to pay. This wine, using that definition, is a winner.

Quite dissapointing. Anyway, a typical french rosé wine.

This wine reminded me of raspberries. It went well with the elements of the meal I ordered: steak, frites and flourless chocolate cake. Crisp, tangy, fruity but not overpowering. I'd have it again!

Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2006 red wine, a blend of 50% Grenache with the rest Carignan and Syrah, the 2006 La Vieille Ferme Cotes du Ventoux exhibits nice grapy and berry fruit in an uncomplicated, medium-bodied style with some pepper, herb, and spice.Wine Tasting NotesThis wine exhibits deep cherry red color with ripe fruit, rich and spicy aromas. A good solid red with pleasant tannins and a long lasting enjoyable finish.
