"Somehow Roger Sabon has captured joy in the bottle. His 2016 Lirac by Roger Sabon boasts subtle spice and vanilla shadings upfront, then elevates the mood with easy-to-drink ripe cherry fruit that's concentrated yet never seems heavy on the palate. This medium to full-bodied wine is lush and fun to drink, ending with softly dusty tannins that lend a welcome savory edge to the long finish. It should drink well for close to a decade." (WA)

"The 2016 Lirac is cut from the same cloth as the 2017, just with a slightly earthier style. Dark fruits, garrigue, peppery herbs and earthy notes all flow from this medium-bodied, rounded, classic Lirac that’s geared for drinking over the coming 3-4 years." (JD)
