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.
Juicy and balanced in red and black berry, this is meaty, smoky and accessible wine, as complex and sultry as any of its vineyard or block-designates, yet softer and rounder, ready to play. A handful of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Peloursin and Negrette are included.
