    Winemaker's Notes:

    The first clue to the depth of this wine is the striking garnet hue. This is a very seductive Pinot Noir wrapped in an aromatic robe of clove and allspice notes draped with juicy red raspberry and kirsch with nuances of incense cedar and roasted wild game. On the palate, the 2009 Spirithouse Pinot exudes class with an inviting structure of satiny tannins and a delicate balance of morello cherry driven fruit lifted by clean acidity and supported by just enough oak structure. This is a wine that will draw you in with its grace, elegance, and power.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The fruit for 2009 Pinot Noir Spirithouse was sourced from the Knudsen Vineyard in Dundee Hills. It is rounder, richer, and more unctuous than the Nuthouse bottling but not with the latter’s precision focus.

    Fresh and inviting, with juicy cherry and spice flavors pushing through a layer of firm tannins. The fruit prevails expressively on the finish. Should develop with cellaring.

    Vivid ruby. Sexy, floral-accented aromas of red berry preserves, cola and mocha, with a spicy topnote. Lively and precise on entry, then richer in the mid-palate, offering intense cherry and black raspberry flavors lifted by zesty acidity. Finishes with gentle tannic grip and very good spicy persistence. This youthful wine really deserves a few years of bottle age, at a minimum.
