Limerick Lane Cellars is one of Sonoma County’;s premier producers of Zinfandel and Syrah. Located in the northeast corner of the Russian River Appellation just south of Healdsburg, the Del Fava family planted this 30 acre estate with grapes in 1910. The family farmed the property until brothers Mike and Tom Collins bought it in the 1970’s. The Collins brothers elevated this storied property and soon began selling their fruit to highly regarded wineries including Davis Bynum, De Loach, Gary Farrell and Ravenswood. The reputation of the Collins Vineyard established Limerick Lane as a premier site for growing Zinfandel and Rhone varieties. In 1986, the first estate wines were produced under the Limerick Lane label, solidifying the winery’s reputation as one of Sonoma County’s premier producers. Approximately five acres of the original vines planted in 1910 are still in production today. A Russian River Valley Pinot Noir was produced in the 2009 vintage. In 2011, Limerick Lane Cellars was sold to Jake Bilbro. Jake’s father, Chris Bilbro, owns Marietta Cellars and Jake’s brother Scot is the winemaker.
Wine maker notes
Aromatically this wine is stunning. Perfume, dried flowers, and fruity spice jump out of the glass. Equally elegant on the palate, this wine is amazingly old world in style exhibiting incredibly feminine, delicate flavors. In every way, this wine is a balancing act.

Technical notes
Syrah from head-pruned vines - unusual for this varietal - was aged in neutral French oak.

Producer
Limerick Lane is a thirty acre estate located in the north east corner of the Russian River Appellation just south of the town of Healdsburg. The estate was first planted to grapes in 1910 by the Del Fava family and the original homestead where Mario Del Fava was born is where my wife, three kids, and I live today. In the mid 70’s, the estate was sold to the Collins family. Brothers Mike and Tom Collins brought incredible passion and enthusiasm to the property selling the grapes as vineyard designates to several well known local wineries including De Loach, Chateau Souverain, Ravenswood, Davis Bynum and Gary Farrell. The quality of the wines and reputation of the iconic Collins Vineyard quickly established Limerick Lane as a premier site for growing Zinfandel and Rhone varieties in Sonoma County. In 1986, the first estate wines were produced under the Limerick Lane label. The subsequent quality of the wines produced solidified Limerick Lane’s reputation as one of Sonoma County’s premier producers as well.
