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.

  • Limerick Lane Syrah Grenache 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Flowery nosegeranium, violet. Combination of fruit and pepper on entryblueberry, plum with spiciness. The wine washes very nicely over the tongue. To my way of thinking, amazingly balanced fruit/tannin/acidI get all three, but none dominate. Read More

  • As wine lovers who among us doesn't enjoy doing horizontal tastings of wines from a single vineyard? That would probably be none of us yet the opportunity to do this doesn't surface very often. I remember doing a Limerick Lane Zinfandel horizontal last year with 6 takes on the same fruit. Other than that I'm at a loss. It's a great opportunity t... Read More

  • Limerick Lane 'Russian River Valley' Zinfandel 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark fruit nose with a bit of alcohol. Soft textured on entry. Medium hit of dark berry fruit, maybe red fruit--cranberry. Very fresh tasting, certainly, not jammy. Medium-stiff tannin at mid-palate. I think this one is fairly typical of Zinfandel from this region. Read More

  • Limerick Lane 1023 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Remarkably smooth entry for such a young wine. Black fruit, but it seems watered down. So, it doesnt smack you in the face. There is also an herbal aspect that is, as much as anything, minty. Smoothness fades mid-palate where a combination of tannin, acid and alcohol seem to give it a roughness. I like this wine and am of the opinion that ... Read More

  • Hi everyone.  This is my first post on the boards.  My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit.  We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More

  • Limerick Lane Russian River Valley Furmint/Harslevelu 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly pale yellow color. Fresh apple aroma. Quite light on initial taste. Light fruit hints of apple with a bit of lime. Excellent ouch of acid tartness prevents sweet fruitiness from dominating. I like this wine a lot. It is pleasant, easy to drink, and is not in-your-face with any characteristic. However, I do not have enough experienc... Read More

  • Limerick Lane Zinfandel Rocky Knoll 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly dark purple color. Big Zinfandelly noseblackberries, woods. Slides very easily over the tongue. Not nearly as fruity as the aromas forecasted. There are hits of blackberry and prune, but very sedate. Firm, not obvious, tannins. Nice acidity makes for good drinkability. Wonderful balance. No alcohol heat at all. Something of a c...

  • It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some sort of a plan not being a requirement for those in this business. But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy.  This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel. I say surprisingly becaus... Read More
