2010 Nuthouse Pinot Noir Magnum (1.5L)
A deep, almost maroon, magenta color on this 2010 Nuthouse Pinot Noir speaks to the richness in the glass. This wine has a strong affinity to the Pacific Northwest with notes of bilberry, red raspberry, black cherry cordial, Douglas fir bark, and a hint of forest floor. There is a cool, darkness in a palate leaning toward the black fruits – Damson plum, blackberry, black currant, and blackcap. Texturally, the 2010
Nuthouse Pinot Noir is soft, but with generous tannins and a round mouth-feel where deftly handled oak integrates with the fruit profile harmoniously. This wine is youthful and still has much to offer with aging that will bring out a host of tertiary characteristics over the next decade.
