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 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.

Friendly cherry, damson plum and herb notes are lined with a hint of lavender, followed by a lightly dusty finish. Drink now.

A strong effort, the 2008 La Vieille Ferme Côtes du Ventoux red exhibits excellent ripeness as well as plenty of cherry fruit intermixed with hints of dusty, earthy, peppery notes. Round and delicious, it, too, should be drunk during it's first year of life.

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

I could make a lot of blue jokes about the orange sheep on the label, but since this catalog doesn't come equipped with a V-chip, I'll keep it clean. Don't be sheepish about serving this wine at your next dinner party - your guests will not become wild or woolly. Actually, you and your guests will find it sheer enjoyment. This Rhône Valley blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre serves up rich gobs of blackberry and blueberry flavors with barely perceptible tannins and a finish full of spice.

Fresh and stylish, with black cherry, grilled herb and tobacco notes that linger on the tender, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now.
