Famille Perrin Ventoux, 2020

Always good, this vintage of Famille Perrin is particularly delicious. Bright crimson red with violet tints. Enticing scents of small red berries, violets and spice. Ripe fruit on the palate with a long peppery finish. Very much what I expect from a young Ventoux, even though Carignan and Cinsault now are dominant over Gremache and Syrah in the blend. The Perrin family touch is evident.

Plum Market in Ann Arbor has an exclusive on this Ventoux, and, at $6.79, it is one of the best wine values I have found.
