The 2011 Lirac les Fermade checks in as an unusual blend of 40% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache and 30% Syrah that was aged all in stainless steel. Fresh and lively, with clean, crisp notes of new leather, earth, blackberry and black cherry fruit, spice and sappy, resinous herbs, it is medium-bodied on the palate, with a light, fresh texture, good acidity and clean finish. It's a solid effort and should evolve gracefully for 7-8 years, if not longer. Drink now-2019.
