Nickel & Nickel Zinfandel Russian River Valley Ponzo Vineyard 2006
Wine Tasting Notes The signature of the Ponzo Vineyard is apparent in this vintage. Raspberry flavors with layers of white pepper, vanilla and spice are apparent in both the aroma and on the palate. This wine is a very elegant Zinfandel with its sweet, jammy fruits and spicy flavors offering a nice warmth and finesse. The toasty oak complements those sweet impressions and the firm, yet supple, tannins carry into a long, balanced finish.
Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel is based on a philosophy of producing 100 percent varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinct personality of each vineyard. It is from some of the most coveted vineyards in the Napa and Sonoma valleys that the Nickel & Nickel wines are produced.
