"If you haven’t caught on to the magic that is emerging from Limerick Lane, it’s about time."
Robert Parker
With only a precious 75 cases for the East Coast, we snatched up as much of this mouthwatering "Estate" Zinfandel as we could - which isn't much.  
Limerick Lane's 2016 Russian River Zinfandel is a rich red replete with dark berry fruit and pairs perfectly with your cold weather cuisine.
Pure and expressive!
Featuring restrained oak, roasted herbs, spice, and dark berries, this classically made Zinfandel also boasts dark cherry, raspberry, white pepper, and dried sage. Expressive flavors of fresh tobacco leaf and plum, a racy and mineral-driven finish anchors the beautiful fruit.
If you are like me and fire-up the grill through autumn and winter, Limerick Lane will be your bbq's best friend.
Enjoy!

Summary


JEB DUNNUCK

95 / 100

"The 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!"

ANTONIO GALLONI

95 / 100

"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."
