The 2017 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Les Vignes de Bila Haut reminds me of an impressive St Joseph (despite having lots of Grenache in the blend) with its black raspberry, white pepper, and leafy herb aromas and flavors. It's seamless, elegant, and balanced, with both acidity and richness. Put this in a blind lineup of Northern Rhônes and shock your friends.

Tasted as a prospective blend prior to bottling, the 2017 Les Vignes de Bila Haut was lush, creamy and generous. It's loaded with vibrant cherry fruit, framed by supple tannins and just downright delicious.
Deep garnet red in color, this blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan offers aromas of black cherry. On the palate, the wine is fleshy and well-structured -- a nice expression of the terroir in the Roussillon area.
Pairs well with beef and Mediterranean food.
