2009 Bonfire Vineyard
Located in Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley, Bonfire Vineyard is situated on two rolling hills that are positioned to receive maximum sunlight exposure from both the east and the west. The soils are composed of a gravelly loam fused with red components that come from oxidized iron, which is indicative of exceptional Zinfandel vineyards in the area. The region’s marine influence is balanced by enough warmth to provide full ripeness, producing wines of excellent proportions. Nickel & Nickel produces this Zinfandel from four-and-a-quarter of the vineyard’s 30 acres.
