    Winemaker's Notes:

    Here's a wine that will require some time to sit back and ponder over. The obvious notes on the nose of big juicy sweet Oregon blackberries and Rainier cherries have layers of summer cedar forest, strawberry rhubarb cobbler, and roses so deeply red they hurt adding aromatic complexities. Richness is exuded by this wine that has a palate full of berries fresh off the vine and exotic Asian spices, but with a graceful elegance that is anything but cumbersome. It is a rare and beautiful thing to find a Pinot Noir with this much power that still maintains the balance and finesse that defines the best that the varietal can be.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light and distinctive for its slightly candied currant and guava flavors, picking up an attractive lime blossom note as the finish lingers effortlessly. Drink now through 2018.

    The 2008 Pinot Noir Nut House is scheduled for release in Spring, 2011. It sports an impressive aromatic array of wood smoke, Asian spices, incense, and assorted black fruits. Elegant on the palate, it manages to cram loads of spicy fruit into its medium-bodied frame. With outstanding volume, balance, and length, it merits 3-4 years of cellaring and will be in its prime from 2013 to 2023.

    Vivid red. Fresh red berry and floral aromas, complicated by sexy spicecake and incense nuances. Lively and precise, with sweet raspberry and cherry flavors lifted by tangy acidity. Shows good clarity and snap on the finish, leaving behind cherry and anise notes.
