Limerick Lane Russian River Zinfandel 2011
Editorial Reviews for Limerick Lane Russian River Zinfandel
Intensely aromatic with spicy oak that is fairly prominent and a nice herbal hint under the vanilla all layered under lots of ripe, spicy blackberry fruit. Surprisingly light and fresh in the mouth with zesty red cherry fruit with a touch of rust supported by fine tannins. This is nicely aromatic in the mouth, with lovely purity tot he fruit and real energy in the mouth along with lots of refreshing acids. There's a bit of heat obvious on the finish though this is very well behaved and fresh for Zin. 91pts

At $32 a bottle, the 2011 Zinfandel is a spectacular effort. This 1,400-case cuvee tips the scales at a lofty 15.1% alcohol. The most elegant offering in the portfolio, it possesses plenty of finesse, a certain lightness and gobs of briery, berry fruit, a touch of pepper and spice. The fragrant aromatics are matched by equally intense rich, full-bodied flavors. It should offer lovely drinking over the next several years.
Loaded with zesty, spicy aromas and flavors, this offers accents of ripe cherry and blueberry, anise and mineral. Shows good structure and focus, with no shortage of ripe tannins. Drink now through 2020.
