This wine is rated favorably by Parker and others, but struck me as borderline unpleasant. Maybe my taste buds were in an off-kilter state, but this wine smelled and tasted to me like a combination of medicinal cherry fruit and overcooked asparagus. Reminded me of an old-time jug wine or mediocre airlines wine. Even for the price, I'd look elsewhere.

The 2004 La Vieille Ferme Cotes du Ventoux, which has mostly Grenache with a bit of Syrah and no doubt some Carignan, etc., and Mourvedre, shows good freshness, straightforward berry fruit, medium body, and good purity and intensity. It is a surprisingly good effort with more substance than I would have guessed. Drink it over the next two years.

The 2009 La Vieille Ferme Cotes du Ventoux red, which, like the white is aged totally in tank, is composed of 50% Grenache and the rest other grapes such as Carignan, Cinsault, and Syrah. It offers copious aromas of cherry fruit intermixed with peppery, spicy garrigue notes. A surprisingly flavorful, easygoing red, it provides tremendous relief to the beleaguered consumer looking for good quality at the $10 price point. Drink it over the next year.

Simple and tasty, this is juicy and thirst quenching in its lively raspberry flavors.

Lots of personality in this medium-bodied, earth-driven, traditional red. Digs into the soil and comes out with the goods; nice fruit, wet stones and mineral complexity in a subtle but ripe package. Chewy but sweet tannins on the lingering, distinctive, fresh finish. Drink now through 2006.

The 2007 Cotes du Ventoux (a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, and Cinsault) is a classic bistro red offering aromas and flavors of berry fruit, licorice, pepper, and spice. Enjoy this soft, round, delicious wine over the next 1-2 years. In their inexpensive (usually under $8 a bottle) La Vieille Ferme series, they have gone to screw cap finished bottles to avoid any problems with corks. This is consistently a top value pick.

The 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.
