Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby color. An intense nose with spicy notes, especially black pepper, and red berries. This very balanced wine offers very round tannins and fresh berry aromas, with some floral and spicy flavors.

The wine is very easy to match with food. Enjoy with simple dishes such as pizza, kebabs, charcuterie, salads, or more ambitious cuisine like terrines, poultry, and roasted or grilled meats.

Critical Acclaim

"In the same mold and an awesome value year in and year out, the 2012 Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee des Terrasses is a blend of 70% Grenache (60-year-old vines) and 30% Syrah (30+-year-old vines) that was aged two-thirds in concrete (and some in stainless steel) and one-third in older oak. Made from a blend of different terroirs on the estate (and basically declassified Quintessence) and coming from hillside vineyards lying between 840-930 feet in elevation, it offers up a gorgeously pure, supple and seamless profile with kirsch and berry-styled fruit, licorice and spring flower-like qualities all emerging from the glass. Elegant, forward and delicious, it gains in stature in the glass, is ridiculously textured from such an inexpensive wine, and has sweet tannin emerging on the finish."
