Overview of the Wine
Nicora was started with little resources, and has been built from the ground up. It truly began in the cellar, where I learned from mentors such as Scott Hawley (Torrin), Eric Jensen (Booker), and Bob Tillman (Alta Colina). I worked for the funds to buy grapes and barrels, and spent many hours with purple hands and wet boots. My dream was to hand craft wines that would be both a personal expression and a reflection of the unique vineyards found within Paso Robles and beyond.

At Nicora, I make wine using traditional techniques that are both time and labor intensive. Each year, I try to expand a bit more, whether it be searching out new-to-me vineyards or bottling just a little bit more, if Mother Nature allows. The hope is to not only provide Nicora enthusiasts with unique and exceptional wines, but to give you opportunities to experience the excitement and joy that is found while crafting the wines. I strive to create something so memorable that the wine may make it to your kitchen table to share with friends and family.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Straight delicious! Rich, yet decadent, Buxom is always trying to steal the show. Gobs of warm baking spices, ground coffee bean, vanilla, and black cherry cola. Hints of bacon and boysenberry compliment the black pepper notes that are prevalent on the finish.

93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
More cool-climate notes of peppery herbs, violets, and blue fruits define the 2018 Buxom, another medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, seamless wine that does everything right. With a layered, elegant, yet nicely textured mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and a great finish, I’d be happy to enjoy bottles any time over the coming 7-8 years.
