Russian River Vly
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Zinfandel Estate has a super spicy nose with tons of red and black berry preserves notes over hints of raisin cake, powdered cinnamon, sandalwood and unsmoked cigars. The palate is full-bodied with plush tannins and oodles of freshness boosting the rich, spicy fruit, finishing long and earthy. 1,826 cases produced.
Dark and brooding, with blueberry and licorice aromas and burly blackberry and cracked pepper flavors that finish on a brambly, tannic note. Best after 2018. 2,000 cases made.
Floral and surprisingly bright, this wine is driven by sharply etched acidity and citrus - its flavors balanced and complementary. Red cherry and raspberry find companionship in seasonings of cinnamon and clove, the texture slightly leathery and bold. (WE)
The 2015 Zinfandel Estate is fabulous. Juicy, pliant and quite giving, the 2015 is impeccably balanced, not to mention flat out delicious. The flavors are resonant and delineated in this juicy, flavorful wine from Limerick Lane. A burst of sweet red cherry, plum, hard candy and mint add the closing flourish.
