    "One of the firm's more consistent offerings, the 2018 Lirac Lou Camine is a medium to full-bodied wine with a lush, creamy mouthfeel and a peppery finish that successfully accents the red-fruit flavors of cherries and raspberries. Drink it over the next 5-6 years."

    "Bright and juicy, with a mix of red and black cherry compote flavors, backed by flashes of lavender and anise. Drink now. 4,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported."

    "Creamy-textured, supple and flat-out fun, the 2017 Lirac Lou Caminé features loads of cherries and berries, accented with just enough garrigue to keep things interesting. Drink this medium to full-bodied crowd-pleaser over the next 3-4 years."
