La Font du Vent Cotes-du-Rhone Les Promesses Grenache Syrah, Rhone Valley 2012 $22 

From Chateauneuf-du-Pape producer Font de Michelle, this juicy, fruit-sweet red has spice and plum-juice aromas and a palate loaded with rich, spicy fruit and soft tannins. It’s deeper and more weighty than most Cotes du Rhones. Good drinking now to at least five years. 14 per cent alcohol. 90/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: richly sauced roast beef

Stockists: Blackhearts & Sparrows, Melbourne; Best Cellars, Sydney
