2021 Limerick Lane Estate Russian River Valley Zinfandel

SKU #5063354
Winery Notes- Our Russian River Zinfandel is our flagship wine. Originally planted by Italians at the start of the 1900’s, this wine hearkens back, in some ways, to a different time. While seamless and with an unparalleled clarity of flavor and aromas, there is also an undeniable gravity that Limerick Lane Zinfandel seems to exude. It may be nothing more than a romantic appreciation for the hands that have tended these vines for over a century. It’s possible that it is a result of the other varieties, now all but extinct, save for a few old Zinfandel vineyards like Peloursin, Negrette, and Petite Sirah, that add more structure, color, and acid than normally found in Zinfandel. Maybe the rocks, the dirt, the morning fog and the afternoon sun come together in this place a little different than anywhere else. It may even be all of these special characteristics combined, but the Zinfandel grown at the end of this little lane is undeniably special, undeniably unique, and undeniably “Limerick Lane.”

VINOUS RATING: 91
VINOUS REVIEW: The 2021 Zinfandel (Russian River Valley) is an absolute delight. Bright and intensely floral, 2021 is packed with varietal character. Crushed red berry fruit, white flowers, and mint all race out of the glass in this refreshing, juicy Zinfandel from Limerick Lane. This is an absolute winner.
JEB DUNNUCK RATING: 93
JEB DUNNUCK REVIEW: A bright saturated ruby, the 2021 Zinfandel Russian River Valley is lifted with fresh aromas of candied peach, grenadine, and pressed red flowers. Medium to full-bodied, with great energy in its notes of fresh mixed berries, gravelly earth, and mocha, it’s an elegant wine with fine tannins, a stony texture, and a good, clean finish. It’s a fantastic entry to the wines from Limerick Lane to drink over the next several years.
WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 93
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Fragrant and vibrantly structured, with expressive raspberry, green peppercorn and roasted sage flavors that build richness and tension toward briary tannins. Drink now through 2031.
