"A 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah, the 2015 Lirac la Dame Rousse offers hints of tar and black olive on the nose, then follows those up with ripe cherries, cracked pepper and a long, dusty finish." (WA)

"Crisp tones of plum and red currant are accentuated by savory hints of moss, garrigue and dusty mineral in this wine. Equal parts Grenache and Syrah, it offers Grenache's richness and warmth balanced neatly by Syrah's peppery acidity and firm, integrated tannins. Drink now through 2021. -Anna Lee C. Iijima" (WE)
