Walter Hansel Winery Cuvée Alyce Pinot Noir 2012

$47.99

Walter Hansel's Cuvee Alyce Pinot Noir. his top cuvee,  is a beautiful, hand-crafted wine from one of our favorite boutique producers down the road from Kistler. Only made 300 cases produced. Limited. 97 Points Robert Parker:  "Another terrific effort is the 2012 Pinot Noir Cuvee Alyce, made from a blend of Dijon clones 115 and 777 culled from the extremely heavy clay soils. Yields were under one ton of fruit per acre. This spectacular 1,100-case cuvee boasts abundant floral notes intermixed with notions of forest floor, raspberries, black cherries, vanillin and assorted spices. Full-bodied, opulently-textured and voluptuous, this sexy, disarming Pinot Noir will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 5-7 years...Combining quality with reasonable prices and estate-grown grapes, you can’t do much better than Stephen Hansel’s Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs."

Wine of the night amongst 6 Pinots. Great nose, nice strawberry palate and long finish. Still drinking this long after other guests left and now the finish is hitting 60 seconds. 120 minute decant was not long enough.

Strawberry, cola, Earth. Well balanced and long long finish. Beautiful. Of the three 2012 Hansell's I've had (three rows, north slope, and this) Alyce is the most elegant, but Three Rows was my favourite. Great stuff.
