Walter Hansel Winery The North Slope Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

$39.99

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.95 Points Robert Parker: "Absolutely magnificent is the 2013 Pinot Noir The North Slope. This wine is deep, rich, with forest floor, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, licorice and Asian spices. It is full-bodied, somewhat primordial and dense, but muscular, rich, concentrated, and has the biggest upside and potential for complexity of all of the 2013s. Give it another several years of bottle age and drink it over the following decade.  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."

Great nose, fruit forward, red fruits, some nice baking spices and low soft tannins. Nice long finish. Great pinot

Deep and complex. Starts out with cool syrah notes. Red and jammy blue fruit. Lighter, fresher red fruit appears later accompanied by herbs and hints of vanilla. Full bodied for a pinot noir and very balanced.
