I don't usually shop for wine at Whole Foods, their prices are usually pretty wack. But... every once in a while their sales offer some deals. This '07 Rhone blend from Freres is a nice buy at $11. Nice dark fruit and meaty essences. Drinking over the next few years.
Some details: The appellation of Cotes-du-Ventoux sits on the East bank of the Rhone river at the foot of the Ventoux mountain range. The appellation extends across 18,000 acres and mirrors the climatic conditions of the grape varieties of its neighbor, the Cotes-du-Rhone.
