Argyle Chardonnay Nuthouse
This 2006 Nuthouse Chardonnay is reminiscent of what the 2002 Chardonnay would have tasted like if it would have had Dijon clones. The 2002 was a blockbuster wine and is still delicious. The aromas are very complex yet fruit forward. Look for fruit aromas of limetta and white peach with spices of cinnamon and high-elevation grown Sikotak clove. All this excitement is wrapped up with a hint of fresh baked pecan pie. The flavor is a great definition of power and grace. Ripe fruit of limetta blossom, pear, white-peach with a hint of green Spanish olive abound. The structure is classic cool, maritime late ripening mineral, rocky acidity, while the finish is a beautifully long essence of Anjou pear brioche.
