"The Cuvée Ventabren is composed of 70% Grenache from very old vines, 20% Syrah and 10% Cinsault, with the latter fermented together. This is a wine that ages gracefully, showing fruit and spice in youth and developing more character and complexity with age as the oak recedes. Open the Ventabren in advance and decant to allow it to breathe - you will not be disappointed! The wine has a beautiful garnet color with a gorgeous nose of cherry, licorice, wet stones and a hint of bacon. On the palate, it is a medium bodied, opulent wine that possesses great depth, length and persistence. Although the wine has great ageing potential, the sweet fruit and spice gives it a lot of immediate appeal. 2005 was a classic year in the Rhone Valley and this wine is delicious after decanting. 14.5%abv"
