Cha-Ching cherry. Lovely, dark and bold. Full bodied with lots of delicious fruit flavors with subtle florals.

One of two 2012 Nicholson Ranch pinots served with coqauvin. This was considered the better Pinot by majority of nine diners.

Nicholson Ranch flagship Pinot noir. Paired with German beef roils don dinner. Outstanding wine for any occasion.

A luscious Pinot Noir with ripe cherry and spicy flavors. Big fruit up front balanced by ripe but soft tannins.
