The 2012 Syrah/Grenache (66% and 34% respectively) sees some new French oak. It offers up copious aromas of blackcurrants, cherries, strawberries, licorice, asphalt and roasted herbs. Good acidity, beautiful density, a full-bodied opulence, and 14.1% alcohol suggest it will drink well for 6-8+ years. This long-moribund winery, which started off so impressively and then went through several personal tragedies, has been resurrected under new ownership by the Bilbro family, who has long-owned the Marietta Cellars winery (known for their sensational values). Brothers Jake and Scott Bilbro are doing a magnificent job with the Limerick Lane wines, most Zinfandel-dominated efforts, but also some intriguing blends that readers will adore. (RP)
The 2012 Syrah/Grenache is a real head-turner. Dark, powerful and structured, the 2012 boasts fabulous depth and intensity. Layers of black fruit, tobacco, smoke, cedar and menthol blossom in an intense, powerful wine endowed with tons of structure and pure class. Brothers Jake and Scot Bilbro have done a remarkable job in restoring Limerick Lane's status as one of the leading estates in Sonoma County. The vineyards and winery are located just outside of Healdsburg, in the heart of the Russian River. Here the Zinfandels have notable focus and acidity, but Syrah and Grenache are equally of note. In short, readers who might have lost sight of Limerick Lane in the recent past will be delighted to see just how distinguished these wines are once again. (AG)
