Review and Rating: **** $ La Vieille Ferme Côtes du Ventoux Rouge, 2006, Rhone, France

Review: This is a "practically-free" offering from Rhone, France, composed of 50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Carignan and 15% Cinsault. In the glass, it is mid purple/red. Aromas are bold and purple-y. To the palate, there is a funky/sweet round middle full of bold flavors. Tannins are medium and help the lengthy finish. Four stars out of five. Screaming value at this ridiculously low price well under $10 U.S.

Wine Spectator gave last year's vintage of this 87 points.
