TN: 2011 Limerick Lane Syrah Headpruned Block

If you open one of these in the near term do it proper and open it a day in advance. You’ll be rewarded.

    Day one this was showing its youth, kinda tight, tart red fruit, steely mid-palate, needed to unwind.
    After being open 24 hrs plus this is really drinking nicely. Nose of violets, thyme. Tart blue and red fruit is full, round and mouth coating. The droopy mid-palate of last night is now lush, chewy and bursting with dark berries and earthy spice. The red berry tartness that abounded on the first night has really transformed well. Tannins are a touch green and fairly prominent. Really enjoyable, well balanced wine.

Thanks Brian!

This was one of the only wines I didn’t pick up from that release, but your note is making me regret that decision.
