My Rating 83. This wine is a simple wine in the tradition of the southern Rhone Region. A blend of four different wines. The nose is medium berry very long. The taste is light with neither an objectional taste nor a interesting flavour. This is good for a garden party on a hot afternoon. Don't invite a wine lover he midgt not like it. At $ 11 for a 1,5 L Bottle it's fine, at least for the before mentioned occassion.

For this wine the Perrin family blends Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, and Cinsault, and assembles a blend similar to Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This is a richly fruity and supple wine, ruby-purple colored, with aromas of cassis and herbs, flavors of plum and blackberry on the palate.

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 Grenache-dominated 2000 La Vieille Ferme Côtes du Ventoux offers a deep ruby color, copious quantities of cherry fruit, a pleasant, open-knit texture, and soft tannin. It is the type of delicious red often found in the southern Rhône, but no where else in the world at this quality level and price.

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

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.

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.

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.
