Argyle

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. Not the case with the 2009 Nuthouse Pinot Noir! This wine is alive with aromas of darkest cherry, cloves and cinnamon. It is no different on the palate-almost explosive in its expression of sweet juicy marionberry, raspberry cordial, and black cherry cobbler framed in subtle oak tannins. Definitely a big wine, but a big wine with grace and elegance enough to lift you up and put a smile on your face.

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.

Score: 91. —Jay Miller, October 2011.

Wine Spectator

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.

Score: 91. —Harvey Steiman, December 15, 2011.
