A Chateauneuf du Pape look-a-like for under $20! Full-bodied, rich and concentrated. A red blend of 50 % Grenache, 35% Syraha nd 15% Mourvedre.
From the Wine Advocate: The 2016 Lirac Domaine du Clos de Sixte is a terrific wine, easily the rival to many Châteauneufs from across the river, starting with its alluring aromas of flowering garrigue and ripe cherries. A blend of 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre, this full-bodied wine is lush and concentrated on the palate, then turns velvety on the long finish. I'd treat it like a Châteauneuf du Pape in terms of cellaring: hold it for a few years, then drink it over the next 15.
