Forward and plush, this full-bodied red offers ripe, primary flavors of summer plum and preserved cherry nuanced by subtle hints of bramble, dried mushroom and earth. It's a juicy, easy-drinking wine that's freshly balanced and framed by fine, lingering tannins. Enjoy now-2022.

The 2016 Lirac Cuvee Reservee (that's the American label, elsewhere it's just labeled Lirac), a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 10% Cinsault, is a terrific value for consumers looking for an authentic Southern Rhône. It's medium to full-bodied, with scents of ripe cherries, licorice and cracked pepper. The tannins are a bit firm, but they add a pleasantly rough edge to the long, spicy finish. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.
