Nicholson Ranch Winery: 2011 Nirvana Estate Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Well balanced, structured and the aromatics blossomed as a drop of water on a calm pond when paired with the Copper River Salmon it took the highest level where mere mortals can aspire to.
My goal is to have Nirvana with a “Leg of Pork” and compare it with the 2011 Cactus Hill which was my first choice, however having Nirvana last night there is no quest. Next time it would be great to do a horizontal tasting the 2011 Nirvana Pinot Noir , the 2011 Cactus Hill Pinot Noir and the 2011 Estate Pinot Noir.
