Nicholson Ranch is only 1.5 years old and produce very nice wines which will probably get better over time. The winery is a beautiful building just off the main road in between Sonoma and Napa so no doubt it will get a lot of traffic passing through it's doors. We got excellent service and actually met the owner, Socrates, in the tasting room and got treated to a tour of the facility. Definitely worth a visit - I just hope the winery doesn't lose it's character when the bus loads of tourists eventually turn up.

2002 Cactus Hill Reserve Pinot Noir ($45)Rating: C
Jun 18th, 2005
Favourite wine of the winery. A big Pinot with a great finish. Not sure if it's worth the price though.
2002 Estate Pinot Noir ($30)Rating: B

This is a heavier Pinot than normal, which makes it very likeable. A very nice wine.
2002 Los Carneros Syrah ($25)Rating: B

Sue got a pepper taste from the Syrah which made her automatically dislike it, but Shane enjoyed it.
2002 Natalie Cuvee Reserve Chardonnay ($45)Rating: B
Jun 18th, 2005
My sister loved this wine (she has a very sweet tooth though). It has a very "buttery" flavor. I didn't like it at all, but if you like the buttery Napa Chardonnay's, then you will love this.
2002 Estate Merlot ($36)Rating: A-B

A little flat and disappointing. Not good value.
