PURELY DOMESTIC WINE REPORT

With NICORA, the level of quality over the six vintages I have tasted informs me of the consistent excellence achieved by Nick Elliott. In the 2014 vintage, the highest scoring wines were the Euphoric and Buxom, both receiving 95 point scores.

Winemaker Nicolas Elliott has produced his best wines to date with these 2014's. Coming from multiple AVA's in the Central Coast, I found all these to be outstanding, and his Bien Nacido is straight up sensational. Bravo!

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE

On the 2010 GSM:  “The 2010 GSM is a beauty! Loaded with deep black cherry, roasted meats, licorice and toasted spice, it flows onto the palate with a full-bodied, rich and concentrated texture and sweet tannin.” – 92 points

INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR

On the 2010 Euphoric:  “Explosive aromas and flavors of candied red fruits, rose pastille and spicecake, plus a hint of woodsmoke. Fleshy and warm, offering a pliant texture and serious weight. A spicy note adds vibrancy to the gently tannic, persistent finish. “ – 91 points
