LIMERICK LANE ZINFANDEL "ESTATE", RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2016
NVWE Notes: Vividly fruit-packed, if notably youthful, this is classic Russian River Zin. The aromas, flavors and finish of this beauty grow as it airs to reveal a cornucopia of pomegranate syrup, red raspberry, red boysenberry, Amarena cherry, red plum galette, cranberry-orange relish, red apple skin, violet, red rose, Schezuan peppercorn, pink peppercorn, sumac berry, mulling-spices, licorice root and black tea. The texture is firm, the body palate-coating, tingling zest ever present and the finish intense. Tasty by itself, it will serve brilliantly with barbecued ribs, and will grow ever more delicious over the next few years. 1200 cases produced.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2016 Estate Zinfandel shows the more powerful, muscular side of the estate. Rich, pliant and creamy, the Estate hits all the right notes. Bright red cherry, plum, rose petal, mint and licorice build into the succulent, racy finish.
With a healthy, welcoming intrigue of spice, this estate-grown wine is dusty and leathery in approach and texture, with lovely layers of red licorice and dark cherry. The acidity is interwoven throughout the full-bodied concentration of flavor, with a finishing touch of white pepper.
A racy red, with a deep structure and vibrant red plum, cherry and smoky cracked pepper flavors that build toward big but refined tannins. Drink now through 2025. 1,978 cases made. TF Issue Web Only - 2018
