2012 Nicora Syrah Shadow Canyon. Cruising into the Christmas weekend in style with this gem from Nick Elliott at @nicorawinery. Fruit forward blast of black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit. Nice and velvety in texture with a wonderful meaty core of smoke, earth, white pepper, and spice. More of a refined style of Syrah and much different from some of the more bolder Paso wines. Soft tannins, long finish...I rather like it! 93 points on the BOTV scale.

When good friends come to town. Can’t wait for another visit @vokelcellars #pasowine #everydayisanevent #nicorawines #saxum #vokelcellars #hermanstorywines

2010 Nicora Buxom. Wow, one the of the best wines I’ve had from Nick Elliott at @nicorawinery, big and bold, mostly Syrah. Ripe, blackberry, black raspberry, and blueberry fruit, full throttled. Wonderful and meaty mid-palate of dark chocolate, tobacco, and bacon fat, very savory. Definitely a ‘hot’ wine from the alcohol but it blows off over time. Firm structure and finishes with a great long finish. 94 points on the BOTV scale.

2013 Nicora The Undisclosed. Well, when it’s over 100 degrees again down here in So Cal, you might as well open something as if it’s still summer, which is exactly what I did here from @nicorawinery. Nice 50/50 blend of Viognier & Roussanne. The nose is definitely that of Viognier and the flavors of Roussanne. Aromas of flowers and tropical fruits while the palate matches with notes of peach, pear, honey, minerals, and wet stone. Rich and creamy texture to it, great mouth feel, nice finish. 92 points on the BOTV scale.

2012 Nicora Grenache Euphoric. Had the '10 version of this wine from @nicorawinery not too long ago and I actually still prefer that one, but this is a good wine on its own. Tart and sour red cherries and strawberries up front. Nice core of spice, smoky pepper, and burnt caramel (in a good way). Definitely a high alcohol wine but it seems to have blown off over time. Medium acidity and good finish. 91 points on the BOTV scale.

Today is all about White Rhone Blends coming from the west side of Paso Robles #pasowine #whiterhoneblend #californiawhite #whitewine #porchpounder #epochestatewines #linnecalodo #nicorawines #kimberlyjonesselections

2010 Nicora Grenache Euphoric. Great wine here from @nicorawinery. Although this is mostly Grenache (95%) with a splash of Syrah, it drinks almost the opposite. Very rich and intense fruit up front of plum and blackberries. Creamy texture to it with a very nice mid-palate of licorice, earth, white pepper, and some mineral notes. Definitely not your typical Grenache profile here. Nice long finish on the end, well done. 93 points on the BOTV scale.
