    Region: Rhone, France

    Varietal: Rhone Red Blends

    Style: Big & Bold

    Item no. 111489

    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Filled with wonderfully ripe fruit, yet fresh and floral in character, this is a top example of Lirac. Black cherry fruit forms the core, supported by firm acids and tannins and accented by hints of licorice on the long finish. Drink now-2020.

    The Lirac 2009 Clos de Sixte may look expensive, but this is a sensational wine capable of lasting for a decade or more. A blend of 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah and the rest Mourvedre, the wine has a dense purple color, a big, sweet kiss of garrigue, blackberries, kirsch, barbecue smoke, damp earth, and wild strawberries. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins as well as real opulence and power, this is a big, fleshy Lirac that should evolve beautifully for up to a decade or more.

    This displays nice range, featuring layers of dark fig, raspberry and blackberry fruit woven with graphite and roasted espresso notes. Nicely buried acidity keeps the finish driving along. Drink now through 2012. 7,000 cases made.
