95 Points Parker A fantastic new release from Limerick Lane, one of our favorite California wineries. Limited. 93 Points Robert Parker: "An amazing wine is their blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache, the 2013 Syrah/Grenache, which again sees almost all neutral oak barrels. Deep purple, with a sexy nose of spring flowers, blackberries, Christmas spices, licorice and forest floor, it’s deep, full-bodied, voluptuously textured, opulent and just a stunningly rich, concentrated wine. I’m surprised the alcohol is only14.1%. Drink now-2023.... ...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."
Repeat tasting of the winner of our Christmas blind tasting. Really good of course, but doesn't quite get close to the previous rating. I guess we had too much wine back then. :) At 30 bucks + not the greatest value.
