Entirely from Lone Star Vineyard, 2015 Nuthouse Pinot Noir exhibits the opulence and power of the Eola-Amity Hills while still retaining fresh fruit and vibrant acidity. Wild cherry, marionberry, roast fennel, and black tea frame its dense core, while the firm tannins persist through its long, creamy finish. After fermentation and gentle pressing, the wine was allowed to age elegantly on its lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 40% were new.

Wine SpectatorRose petal and dark plum aromas open to well-structured blackberry, sage and tea flavors that finish on a tart, tannic note. Drink now through 2023. 2,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastBlack-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.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.
