90 Points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate. "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%."
"If you haven’t caught on to the magic that is emerging from Limerick Lane, it’s about time."
From the winery: "The wines of the southern Rhone serve as inspiration to us at Limerick Lane. The clarity of flavors, generous mouth-feel and bright aromas denote wines of place, of celebration, warmth, and the abundance of experience that results when food, wine and friends come together. Of the wines that we produce, none distills this feeling more to its essence than our Syrah/Grenache blend. Spicy and chewy Syrah provides a gorgeous foundation and the fresh bright strawberry flavors of Grenache accentuate and highlight the nuances of the Syrah. This wine pairs effortlessly with a wide variety of foods, regardless of season, and almost begs to initiate conversation, laughter, and cheer. While unquestionably “made” in the vineyard and by the unique climate that our estate affords us, this wine was inspired and finds its place thanks to the rich culture and lifestyle exemplified in the southern Rhone and Provence".
