Wow, will this wine be singing in 8-10 years. Terrior is already peeking through. Just as impressive as at the winery a few months back. Enjoyed with rack of lamb and Branzino at Bottega in Yountville.

It's a lean young Pinot with pedigree. Still not knitted together. Big acidity. Lot of oak. A bit of cardamom.

Industrialist James D. Zellerbach acquired the 200 acre Hanzell estate on the Mayacamas slopes above the town of Sonoma in 1948, and in 1952 he planted 2 acres of Pinot Noir and 4 acres of Chardonnay on the site. Aromas of red fruits and floral scents. On the palate cherry and sweet citrus with cacao and oak notes. Smooth tannins, lingering, with great balance ending with earthy mineral tones. Something Special.
