This full bodied red will have you thinking of the higher end wines of the Rhône Valley. Roussillon is one of the most bang for your buck regions in all of wine.
A blend with mostly Syrah, you can expect some fruit notes upfront, but the drive of the wine is earth, smoke, and cedar. This is a wine that you can save and enjoy over the next 10 years.

“Slightly darker fruited and less floral than the Entrée du Royaume, the 2017 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Les Cimes is a similarly styled wine, one that emphasizes silky elegance over sheer extract, yet it offers tremendous flavor and complexity. This blend is 45% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and 10% Carignan. Brimming with blueberries and plums, it hints at floral notes and includes a rich blend of dried spices. It’s aged in 50% new oak (500-liter barrels) yet doesn’t appear oaky at all, save perhaps for a soft dusting of wood tannins on the finish.”
