VF Rose 2004 wine review by (PB)

This rose is from the Costieres De Nimes, Rhone Valley Vineyard and Lavielle Ferme is the producer. It is--as the label says--75% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 10% Syrah and 0% cork. (it is a crew cap bottle)

This rose has a red/orange/yellow hue with a beautiful bouquet of candied red fruit.

The flavors are subdued, but what is there is pleasant and fresh. The wine is a bit acidic and somewhat unremarkable. I prefer the old label rose "La Vielle Ferme." I paid $8.50 for this which is a fair price although their previously produced rose from the Cotes Du Ventoux was much better and cost around $6. This is a good aperitif wine. Raise a glass.
