2006 Chateau Pesquie Terrasses Cotes du Rhone: Very good.

nov. 7, 2009: we had this rhone valley vineyards selection with grilled seasoned chicken, carrots and asparagus. we both really liked it. we started off with some saga blue cheese, manchego, gouda, brittany butter and bread. it went very well with those. overall, victoria thought the wine was slightly sweet with mild tannins, but it didn't have much of a nose. greg agreed that it was a little sweet. he said it tastes like cherries and has that tannic smell he's accustomed to. this wine is 70 percent grenache and 30 percent syrah. 14 percent alcohol. $13.99 with 10 percent case discount at big red liquors.
