    Winemaker's Notes:

    This is our Classic "big furniture" Pinot Noir style derived from Lone Star Vineyard. Its melanite color is the first indicator of its boldness. The aroma is black cherry reduction fruit, black licorice, Earl Grey spices, and that luscious, fresh earth quality that says "Nuthouse". The flavors are big, juicy black cherry and black plum pudding spices. The texture forms a rich, creamy center to this richly ripe Pinot Noir. The ripe plum and cherry fruit carry on and on. It is a wonderful thing to experience such powerful, exotic Pinot Noir yet wonder at its bright, balanced, mineral pinpoint touch twirling on the palate.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Smooth and spicy, with a floral edge to the plum and cinnamon flavors, nicely integrated and lingering against refined tannins. Drink now through 2014. 3,687 cases made.

    The 2006 Pinot Noir Nut House reflects the opulence so easily achievable in the problem-free 2006 vintage. Dark ruby-colored, this is a large-scaled, full-bodied Pinot with gobs of flavor and a voluptuous, sexy personality. Enjoy it over the next 6-8 years.

    Vivid red. Spicy raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by a suave floral quality. Open-knit red fruit flavors are framed by gentle tannins and pick up an intriguing spiciness on the back end. The floral note echoes through the long, sappy finish. Drink this before the Spirithouse.

    Not that great really. Certainly not worth paying extra over the other Argyle's.
