Walter Hansel Pinot Noir Cahill Lane Vineyard Russian River Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): Hansel's 2011 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane is another striking wine. Freshly cut roses, sweet red berries, spices and mint all flow from this totally effortless, gracious Pinot. There is a level of elegance and pure finesse that sets the 2011 apart from many of the other wines in this range. A long, super-finessed, saline-infused finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. (Apr 2013)

Walter Hansel Winery is located in Sonoma County at the southern tip of the Russian River Valley near the Sebastopol hills. It is bordered to the north by the Santa Rosa Creek and to the west by a tributary of the Russian River known as the Laguna de Santa Rosa. This location is ideal for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as the nights and mornings are cooled by coastal fog yet the mid-days warm up to perfect grape ripening temperatures. Temperature swings of 40 degrees are very common. Read less

Vintage: 2005 09/24/2010

The 2005 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane, made primarily from Dijon Clones 114 and 115, boasts a dark ruby color in addition to a sumptuous bouquet of black cherries, cool leafy notes, forest floor, and subtle oak, and superb length as well as richness. It should evolve for a decade or more. Kudos to Stephen Hansel for keeping prices so realistic.
