Like sitting front-and-center at the grand opera, and instead of string, woodwind and percussions vibrating throughout, penetrating flavors permeate your palate, hitting every note along the way with perfect clarity.  Like sitting front-and-center at the grand opera, and instead of string, woodwind and percussions vibrating throughout, penetrating flavors permeate your palate, hitting every note along the way with perfect clarity.  Consistently rated in the mid 90’s, and with each performance like a sold-out show, and yet the ticket price has remained almost unchanged over the past decade… Walter Hansel voices the best of the Russian River Valley, and Robert Parker writes that they’re “... consistently terrific wines… realistically priced… consumers couldn’t have a better friend than proprietor Stephen Hansel.

Originating from famous clones, strategically planted to specific areas of Walter Hansel’s Estate Vineyard, the 2014’s are hitting the high notes that you wouldn’t think possible at this price level…

2014 WALTER HANSEL “SOUTH SLOPE” PINOT NOIR

 

From Vinous, “…  The dark, intense flavor profile of the vintage is very much in evidence, but the 2014 needs time to come together. That should not be much of an issue, as the North Slope probably won’t be released before 2017. It is so refreshing to taste with proprietor Stephen Hansel. At a time when so many of the world’s best wines are increasingly unaffordable for the normal consumer, Hansel has kept his prices decidedly reasonable…” 93+ Points

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “…The 2014 Pinot Noir North Slope is fabulous, has a huge upside to it and probably will benefit from several years of bottle age. All of these were scheduled to be bottled in 2015. This is 100% clone 115 and Stephen Hansel says it’s the most fruit-forward of the wines. It is certainly seductive, hedonistic, with a dense ruby/purple color, beautiful black raspberry and black cherry fruit, a big medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, loads of glycerin and hedonism....”
