The 2015 Pinot Noir Nuthouse is pale ruby in color with a nose of Bing cherry and dried cranberry with nuances of freshly grated nutmeg and sweet cola. Light to medium-bodied, it has ripe red fruits in the mouth with a lovely undercurrent of black tea, spice and savory notes with soft tannins and plenty of freshness, dropping off a tad on the finish. 2,000 cases produced.
Black-cherry fruit comes wreathed in light smoke, with a streak of root beer adding to the flavor. This is a wine of medium weight and concentration, with hints of fennel throughout.
