I agree with 10/25/2014 ZORG, "Blueberries and dark fruit both on the nose and in the mouth." However, I disagree that there is "good tannic structure." The tannins are very strong and drown out the limited fruit flavor. Again, ZORG, "Good but nothing special, but still too young."
The Clos de Sixte Lirac is a deep ruby red, the nose is fragrant with floral scents, along with earth, leather and cherries. The wine is smooth with plenty of black cherry, and supported with a firm structure. Good acidity, average finish. This bottle not as good as the previous one, which was fabulous (~92). Seems to be wound a little tighter at this stage. Going to wait at least a year before going back to this one.
