Limerick Lane Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
VinousThe 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.
Jeb DunnuckThe 2016 Zinfandel Russian River Estate is another gorgeous wine from this estate. Plums, sandalwood, Asian spices, and a hint of cigar all flow to a seamless, elegant Zinfandel that shows the class and quality of this vintage. With medium to full-bodied richness and building, fine tannin, it has complexity, texture, and length. Bravo!
Wine EnthusiastWith 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.
Wine SpectatorA 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.
Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Zinfandel Estate reveals a vivacious nose of warm redcurrants, black cherries and blackberry preserves with touches of Chinese five spice, forest floor, fertile loam and potpourri. Big, rich and full-bodied with a firm frame of chewy tannins and a lively acid line, it finishes very long and very spicy. 1,869 cases produced.
