A Blend of 50% Grenache noir, 35% Syrah & 15% Mourvedre, aromas of ripe fruits and subtle spice. On the palate blackberry and cherry flavors with notes of sweet vanilla spice. Fine tannins, lingering ending with fruit character. Very nice.

Dark fruits, dried, tannins medium, acid medium, briarbrush undertones, good finish with earth and leather. Probably needed a good decant, but it was bday time at the restaurant...we survived!

Am I nuts to like this as much (if not more) than Jaume’s Châteauneuf? Taut, mineral-tinged, savory Grenache of the highest order. I’d rate it higher, but it finishes a bit hot and short, like most ‘16 southern Rhône.

Deep ruby color. Plush strawberry prserves, blackberry accented by spice and lavender notes. Full body and velvety tannins. Give this one a little more time and i think youll be rewarded

Lirac is an exceptional spot for value. So similar to CDP, but can be a regular drinker with the value pricing.

Jan 5, 2021. W/Caitlin. Purchased 1/2016. Dark fruit (blackberry, blueberry), earthy. Slightly short finish, but that didn’t diminish enjoyment of this wine.
