Walter Hansel Winery Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016

$42

94 Points                                Another beautiful small-production Pinot Noir from Walter Hansel who continues to make a small amount of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay down the road from Kistler, at unbelievably sane prices.  Stock up while available. 94 Points Robert Parker: "The 2016 Pinot Noir The North Slope is medium ruby-purple in color and scented of crushed red plums, mulberries and black cherries with touches of baking spices, violets and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, it offers bags of rich berry flavors in the mouth with a sexy, plush texture and scintillating freshness, finishing long... ...Some of the best values in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir emerge from Stephen Hansel’s winery in the Russian River Valley.  All of the Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs are bottled unfiltered.  This is a source for very fine Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs at some of the most realistic prices to be found in Northern California."

Earthy, overripe berries, med. high acidity. Lovely. Opens up in a glass after about 10-15 minutes.
