Limerick Lane 1023 Russian River Valley Zinfandel Blend 2016

$68

95 Points Parker                                                                         A fantastic new release from Limerick Lane, one of our favorite California wineries. Limited. 95 Points Wine Enthusiast:  "This is a stellar combining of 52% Zinfandel, 45% Syrah and 3% Grenache, all estate-grown and dancing in acidity. Incredibly floral, bright and jammy, it evokes violet and berry pie, with rounded tannins that don't get in the way of the juicy midpalate. This wine is fresh with plenty of power." 1023 was born of this spirit of exploration and experimentation. 1023 is a blend of the most dramatic, the most striking and compelling lots this estate produces in a given vintage. Blended without varietal restriction, the goal is quite simply to assemble a wine where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. While the blend can change significantly each year, the resulting wine will always be the same -- an imaginative, uncompromising and artistic expression of a vintage at this extraordinary estate.

Very backward at the moment. Dark brooding cherry, dark berry. gravelly. 93 for now but this will develop/improve substantially over the years.

I agree with Galloni and Wine Enthusiast that this is a great wine (94 and 95 pts respectively). But it’s not there yet for me. It needs time (Galloni said this too). 93 for now with big potential

This is the Elie O! new wine not released yet. A generous amount of Viognier added (some cofermented and separate). So aromatic. Jake was going for a summer red and this is delicious.
