Lot #41 LIMERICK LANE CELLARS
- Russian River Valley
ABOUT THE WINE:
This is the first time Limerick Lane Cellars has combined Ricci Vineyard Zinfandel with their historic 1910 Block Zinfandel. Both old vine vineyards have recently been reunited under Limerick Lane Cellars and expressed through this wine. These two old vine sites are contiguous but offer unique flavor components that integrate nicely to make a one-of-a-kind wine. “Rendition” is an exciting new expression of Zinfandel which the winery has never done before.
Limerick Lane is a 53-acre estate located in the northeast corner of Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley. In an appellation that is renowned for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, they grow and produce world class Zinfandel and Rhone Varietals. The vineyards sit at an exact point where soil, water levels, rocks, sunshine, wind and fog meet. Without any one of these individual factors, these wines wouldn’t exist.
Winemaker Chris Pittenger picks and ferments each of the dozen or so blocks separately to identify nuances within each block that contribute to the final blend. These subtle differences in structure, aromatics, acidity, and flavors are what makes this wine unique. “Rendition” offers a broad and expansive palate with a range of red and blue fruit flavors and aromas. The wine finishes with moderate structure and ample acidity that are synonymous with Zinfandels grown on Limerick Lane.
