LIMERICK LANE ZINFANDEL "ESTATE", RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2014
Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
The 2014 Zinfandel Estate is primarily Zinfandel, but there are other grapes in this mixed black field blend, including Peloursin, Négrette, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Carignan. This is a sensational Zinfandel, with an explosive nose of pepper, raw meat, blackberry, black raspberry and cherry. Deep, chewy and dense, it finishes at 14.8% natural alcohol. The lusty, exuberant style of this wine makes it irresistible already, and it should continue to drink well for another 5-8 years.
Distinctive violet, blueberry and raspberry aromas open to layered and expressive avors of smoky beef, cracked pepper and dried sage. Drink now through 2024.1,982 cases made. T.F.
NVWE Notes: From it’s dark purple color to its vivid, forthcoming fruit expression, this is classic Limerick Zin. The nose is a blast of black cherry, black raspberry, violet, Schezuan pepper, black pepper and licorice root. In the mouth it is juicy and bright and palate-coating despite notable zest, and the flavors are a lingering rush of sour cherry, red plum, crab apple syrup, Schezuan pepper, black pepper, coriander and star anise. Pleasure-packed as a sipper, it will be even more fun with barbecued meats, and is likely to grow deeper with time.
