"The 2011 Lirac La Dame Rousse is an equal blend of Grenache and Syrah. This vintage is more evolved and softer than 2012, so readers looking for immediate gratification will prefer the 2011. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by plenty of garrigue, lavender, black currant, cherry and underbrush characteristics. This spicy, fleshy, well-made wine delivers lots of fruit, body and character. Enjoy it over the next several years. - RP"
