Food Pairings for Nickel & Nickel Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Bonfire Vineyard
A nice California Style (new world) zin. Dark fruit, vine ripe blackberries, plum, just a hint of cassis. Sweet vanilla really comes through from noticeable french oak, but seems it may have touched american oak as well. Very little black pepper, and much more sweet ripe fruit than earth.
WINEMAKER NOTES: Bonfire Zinfandel has opulent fruit both in the aroma and on the palate. Raspberry and blackberry fruits expand upon entry, with some layering of black pepper and earth adding interest. The sweet vanillin and spice from the oak add warmth to the juicy palate and carry through into a long, supple finish. This wine is beautifully balanced despite its rich intensity.
