NOTE: We have a lot of this wine and have just dramatically discounted! Note that it is conservative / classical in its styling, and actually age-able.
Lirac is just across the Rhone River from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, often providing relative value. This Grenache-oriented red (also utilizing Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault) comes from a ripe vintage, yet remains classical in frame. Expressive and beautifully balanced, it is MY kind of Rhone! 91 points from Jeb Dunnuck and James Suckling.
