Overview

The flavours are big, juicy black cherry and black plum pudding spices. The texture forms a rich, creamy centre 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.

Expert Reviews

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. Rating 92 - Jay Miller, Wine Advocate #185 (OCT/2009)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

This is our Classic “big furniture” Pinot Noir style derived from Lone Star Vineyard. Its melanite colour is the first indicator of its boldness.

Aroma

The aroma is black cherry reduction fruit, black licorice, Earl Grey spices, and that luscious, fresh earth quality that says “Nuthouse”.

Palate

The flavours are big, juicy black cherry and black plum pudding spices. The texture forms a rich, creamy centre 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.

Vintage Condition

The 2006 vintage was a very comfortable vintage with very little drama. Spring brought plenty of sunshine and heat to set an extraordinarily large crop. This is quite a contrast to 2004 and 2005 poor fruit set vintages. 2006 had the third highest heat units since 1983. Interestingly, 3 of the 5 highest heat summations since 1981 occurred since the New Millennium (2000 A.D.).
