    The Walter Hansel "North Slope" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is crafted from small-yield Dijon clone grapes, known for complex and delicate aromatic qualities after fermentation. Of the highest quality, "North Slope" has a bouquet of wild violet, peony petal and fresh wildflowers like those you'd expect to find in Russian River Valley in spring. The palate is mineral-driven and fairly light, but bursting with deliciously ripe black and Bing cherry.

    This is such a beautiful, bright and expressive Pinot Noir. It’s perfumed with rich cherry, raspberry, and cola berry flavors, with plenty of underlying herbs, thyme and garrigue, and subtle baking spice from the French oak. And for all it’s delicate expressiveness, it can also be described as rich and powerful, with grippy tannins for structure and ageability. This will be fun to revisit in five years.​

    Deep, deep nose of dark cherries, deep strawberry and rhubarb notes. Starts off lively on the palate and fleshes out with strawberry and cherry fruit, baking spices and lush mouthfeel. A super solid effort! As usual, this selection maintains that excellent Walter Hansel (high) quality.
