We are at the eastern extremity of the Russian River AVA, and close to the eastern end of the Dry Creek Valley AVA. This is an area of rolling hills with Southwest exposure. The soils are of volcanic origin, mainly a clay loam with a great deal of volcanic rock and shale. The soil depth varies greatly and along with the low vigor of the site this limits production. We are fairly high up the hill and whilst we are not frost free we seem to have averted major frost damage in recent years. The vines are head pruned (small bushes, no trellis wire). The vineyard is dry-farmed (no irrigation), relying on winter and spring rains to water the vines. Normally the vines are pruned in January and February and the cover crop of Fava beans, clover, vetch, chamomile and mustard is ploughed into the ground in March. Each vine is pruned so the major arms form the shape of a wineglass about 3-4 feet high. From this basis the canes form a leafy canopy with approximately two bunches of grapes per cane. In summer time as Read more »

  • Limerick Lane Syrah Grenache 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Similar to my notes a year and a half ago. Very bright fruit--plum, blueberry, red cherry--on the tip of the tongue. Enough tannin to convince me this is wine--not fruit juice--balanced by good acid. Read More

  • Limerick Lane Bedrock Vineyard Zinfandel 2015

    Snoothrank:

    First impression is that this is a medium-bodied Zinfandel. Initial flavor profile is light red fruitplum, cherry. Very moderate tannin. Leaning slightly towards acidic tartness. Definitely not as long an ager as I thought the 2014 was. Still a good drink, today, though. Read More

  • Limerick Lane Bedrock Vineyard Zinfandel 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Big volatile nose of dark fruit. On the tongue, not quite ripe blackberry and plum. Very serious tannin. Good acid. Interesting that sweetness from the fruit is detected on the edges of the rear of the tongue. Could probably be aged for many years. Read More

  • Limerick Lane Block Zinfandel 2014

    Snoothrank:

    An eminently likeable wine. Red berry and stone fruit on entry. Then some serious tannin jumps in. However, the fruit still lingers a bit. Very good acid content really helps this one become a winner. I think this might be a wine that will grow in complexity with several more years of aging. Read More

  • Limerick Lane Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Large blackberry and dark cherry profile here, dark chocolate, earthiness with big tannins, matching acidity. Here's the catch - there is a sweetish grapey-ness that is highly a port profile. Interesting thought isn't it. 92 points - hold - Paul Read More

  • Limerick Lane 1023 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Bright, tart red fruitcherryon entry. Interestingly, enough, the tartness almost suggests citrus, and, going really crazy, orange as much as anything. Some woodiness mid-palate. Medium-bodied. Not much tannin to speak of. A fun, easy-to-drink wine. Read More

  • Limerick Lane Headpruned Block Syrah 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Beautiful dark purple color. Rich pruney nose. Blackberry on the tip of the tongue. Some, woodiness to which I would attribute tannin. Nice firm tannins and acid give lots of backbone. I love the fact that this is not an in-your-face-with-fruit wine. The blackberry note hinted dissipates into a truly terrific wine experience. Read More
