Cotes Du Ventoux 2004 (Cave La Romaine) wine review by (PB)

This Rhone region wine is made from gathered grapes from the region and this one has a very light cherry color which looks almost like a rose when viewed on the tilt.

It’s bouquet hints of light strawberry and a little raspberry with black pepper mid palate. In the mouth it is at first a bit sour but seems to lose it’s sourness with the next taste.

It strikes me as a blend of Grenache and Syrah but there are 13 grapes allowed in the appellation so who knows? It is a bit chewy but all in all I like this wine and we had it with grilled burgers. It was a decent enough paring so raise a glass. It was $10 and I suspect you could fine it for less but once again, the wines from the Rhone tend to be just very drinkable wines at a decent price.
