Limerick Lane is a 30-acre property located just south of Healdsburg in the northeast corner of Russian River Valley AVA. Like many historic vineyards in the Russian River, Limerick Lane was originally planted in 1910 by Italian immigrants, the Del Fava family, and today is considered one of the top sites for Zinfandel in all of Sonoma County. The winery is now owned and run by 2nd generation winemakers, Jake and Scot Bilbro, sons of Chris Bilbro of Marietta Cellars.
"The 2016 Zinfandel Russian River Estate is another gorgeous wine from this estate. Plums, sandalwood, Asian spices, and a hint of cigar all flow to a seamless, elegant Zinfandel that shows the class and quality of this vintage. With medium to full-bodied richness and building, fine tannin, it has complexity, texture, and length. Bravo!"-Jeb Dunnuck, 95 points!
"The 2016 Estate Zinfandel shows the more powerful, muscular side of the estate. Rich, pliant and creamy, the Estate hits all the right notes. Bright red cherry, plum, rose petal, mint and licorice build into the succulent, racy finish."-Vinous, 95 points!
