The Limerick Lane Vineyard Zinfandel is always one of our earliest ripening sites. This early ripening was in part because the Limerick Lane Vineyard did not have the abundant crop many other vineyards enjoyed in 2014. Yields were good, but not off the charts. This led to a more concentrated wine, brimming with intense flavor. We blended only select barrels for the final wine, opting for ultimate quality over quantity. The 2014 Novy Limerick Lane Zinfandel is a rich and robust wine, with flavors of licorice and raspberry, along with hints of briary underbrush and smoked pepper. The finish tightens up a bit, making for a Zinfandel that will stand up well to heartier food dishes.
