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

This $8 wine is pretty purple with gentle light strawberry notes.
In the mouth there is a spicy first impression followed by a steely note. the wine is tightly wound and shallow. Breathe it!

With some air time, it is all raspberry and pepper near the rear palate. This is a solid, old world wine with some character and tastes genuine (as opposed to the "manufactured" styles I sometimes mention.)

Raise a glass.
