This Oregon sparkling wine truly brings zest to life! The nose of lemon curd, raw honey, and almond biscotti harkens to the uplifting and refreshing palate to follow. With a fine mousse that buoys one up and flavors of Comice pear, custard, and marzipan that dance across your tongue, one cannot resist a grin as the effervescence slowly fades to a clean, minerally, citrus-toned finish. With the second sip, you’re guaranteed to be in an elevated state. Brut makes you better!
Mouthwatering is the first descriptor that comes to mind. A nose of sweet white peach, orange blossom, and cool nectarine with an overlay of toasted hazelnuts, clove and allspice that is so fresh, pure and clean that it just fires up those salivary glands. It opens with a full mouth feel with notes of baked peach and toasted hazelnuts and delicious notes of honey and hints of graham cracker. The palate finishes with clean oak spice notes and a stony minerality that quenches and excites. Pour me another glass of that Nuthouse!
This is our Classic “big furniture” Pinot Noir style derived from Lone Star Vineyard. Its melanite color is the first indicator of its boldness. The aroma is black cherry reduction fruit, black licorice, Earl Grey spices, and that luscious, fresh earth quality that says “Nuthouse”. The flavors are big, juicy black cherry and black plum pudding spices. The texture forms a rich, creamy center 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.
"How dark is the ocean, how deep is the sea?” The answer just might be in a glass of this Reserve Pinot Noir! This Pinot Noir has a seductive rich, super dark ruby-violet color. The aromas reflect one’s expectations of a cool year, dark colored Pinot. Aromas leap out the glass with black cherry, black cherry leather, and cedar, cedar smoke with a ripping portion of cinnamon spice, finishing off with a delicate hint of violet flower patch. Use of new oak was delicate, so the aromas are real time Pinot Noir! The flavor is a big juicy mouthful with firm tannin structure framed by velvet texture. The fruit is all about black cherry all the way to a very long finish. Spice of “far away lands” rounds out the complexity of this exciting, cool season vintage Pinot Noir.
