St. Helena, Napa Valley

Nicholson Jones

St. Helena Sauvignon Blanc 2016

One of my favorite small production wine, 300 cases. Cal Nicholson spent his youth in So. CA & after a long marketing career he hung up his spurs to follow his 2 real interests in life – surfing & wine making. Jones is the maiden name of Cal’s wife Pam. A wonderful wine. Aromas of lemon citrus with herb, stone & tropical fruits. Palate, peach, Granny Smith apple & ripe melon flavors with lively citrus zest wrapped in lbalanced acidity. Lingering finish ending with mineral citrus finish. Consistent! Nice! — a day ago

Reserve St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

It’s been a while since I posted a wine on delectable but I thought this beauty merits me posting.........Badass in a Glass!!!
Incredible 16!!!! Decanted and sipped over a 2 1/2 hour period and it was still evolving! TRB knocks it out of the park again!!!
Lush with a punch and a finish that just goes on and on and on. How does my old saying go?? Godzilla wearing ballet Pointe shoes is tiptoeing across my palate 🙌👏👏🙌 .
Bravo to Beverly and Arvind Sodhani! Two of the nicest owners that I have had the privilege to have met. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Nice photo. Love a fire & a glass. While the 16 Reserve is a better wine with long cellaring, I think their Estate wine showed better at their their release party.

November’s 4th Friday was a big hit. There is no way I’ll be able to upload all the wines, nor give them the reviews they deserve, but there were a few worthy of mentioning!

Typical Vineyard 29 (in my opinion). Their wines are normally very bright and red fruit dominant...this was no different. Ripe black cherries, crunchy cranberries, baking spices and red licorice on the nose. Perfectly weighted on the palate. Clean. Dark cocoa, mixed berry pie and cherry wood. Drinking really well now.

Celebrating the installation of the second flight of floating stairs. Still needs the detail to complete the ensemble, but otherwise, wifey and I are happy with the outcome.
The 2015 Sinegal cab is our fave. Prior notes apply.
