2003 Patrick LeSec Cotes de Ventoux "Domaine de la Camarette (Vieille Vignes)
Bright nose of cherry-blueberry-cassis fruit with a hint of pine forest that benefits from airing. Dense but lively cassis fruit in the mouth, with a bit of pepperiness and tannin in the back of the palate. Simple, satisfying, fresh, and gutsy -- a nice weekday dinner red. Will last and improve the next few years. 87. About $8 at Spec's Warehouse on Smith.
