LIMERICK LANE ZINFANDEL RR '18
LIMERICK LANE ZINFANDEL RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2018
NVWE Notes: If youthfully reserved, this wine fans-out with classic Limerick Lane vineyard character in chiseled focus. The nose melds scents of raspberry cremesickle, Santa Rosa plum jam, fresh pomegranate, red apple skin, pink peppercorn, star anise, nutmeg and hard-edged mineral notes into a precise yet ultimately elegant melange. It is piquantly fresh, large-scale and sharply dry on the mid-palate, where a coiled mirroring of the aromas is evident and the concentration is noteworthy. The finish is ultra-long and sparkles with raspberry, pomegranate, red plum, red cherry, black and Schezuan peppercorn, black tea, star anise, clove and dark earth flavors in high relief. Altogether delicious now, it should be spectacular in another two or three years. 1766 cases produced.
