95 Points Parker
A fantastic new release from Limerick Lane, one of our favorite California wineries. Limited.
90 Points Robert Parker: "The 2014 Syrah/Grenache blend (67% Syrah and 33% Grenache) is also aged the same amount of time in neutral oak, but production is slightly larger at 580 cases. This wine has a Mediterranean personality. Notes of lavender, ground pepper, blackcurrants, black cherries, raw meat and smoked game are all present in this full-bodied, richly fruity, Rhône-like wine. It has light tannins, loads of fruit, a voluptuous mouthfeel and should drink well for the next 5-6 years. Alcohol here is relatively moderate at 14.4%...
...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."
