Quick Review: Wine at James

France, Rhone Valley, Cotes du Ventoux, Chateau Valcombe, "Signature," 2008
+ // Fruity // Strawberry, Petrol // Berry, a long leather finish // Medium to Heavy

Red wine from this region (Cotes du Ventoux) is composed of a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault grapes. Oz Clarke notes in his book Let Me Tell You About Wine that 2008 is a vintage to be avoided--but we would never have known.
