Winemaker Notes

For those of you familiar with the Nuthouse style, you'll know that on release these wines don't always leap out of the glass, they need time in the bottle to open up aromatically.

Critical Acclaim

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

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.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The 2009 Pinot Noir Nuthouse is produced entirely from the Lonestar Vineyard. It sports an alluring nose of smoke, exotic spices, incense, and assorted red and black fruits. Elegant on the palate, it is a savory, elegant, spicy offering that has enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years. It will drink nicely through 2019.

Light and vibrant, this is juicy with cherry and raspberry fruit, picking up a floral note as the finish lingers enticingly. Drink now through 2017. 2,500 cases made.
