2005 Lirac Red Rhone: Good summer wine. We'd both get this again.


july 25, 2009: this is the bottle rob williamson had said tasted like bacon. greg popped it open to go along with our meal of grilled chicken seasoned with garlic and rosemary, broccoli and a very delicious sauteed vegetable dish with rosemary (sweet onions, orange bell pepper, and mushrooms=very tasty.) greg thinks the wine is excellent, it's a really good red rhone. when he had it before we ate, he said it had a hint of smokiness but it wasn't quite bacon, however. now that we've eaten our meal, he said the smokiness is overshadowed. victoria thinks this wine is a good light summer wine. it has a slight acidity, but there's enough flavor to balance that out. there are minor tannins, but they are light and match the humidity of the evening. she said she can't taste the bacon. 13.5 percent alcohol. $15.99 at big red liquors.
