Limerick Lane Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2014
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 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.
Wine EnthusiastJuicy and balanced in red and black berry, this is meaty, smoky and accessible wine, as complex and sultry as any of its vineyard or block-designates, yet softer and rounder, ready to play. A handful of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Peloursin and Negrette are included.
Wine SpectatorDistinctive violet, blueberry and raspberry aromas open to layered and expressive flavors of smoky beef, cracked pepper and dried sage. Drink now through 2024. 1,982 cases made.
