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

From cool-climate soils, the 2007 Pinot Noir North Slope (Dijon clone 115 exclusively) is another admirable Pinot Noir. Notes of root vegetables, underbrush, clove, cinnamon, and oodles of black cherry and black currant fruit are present in this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. Good acidity, full-bodied power, and plenty of concentration and depth characterize this very promising Pinot, which should evolve for at least a decade. This is a source for very fine Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs at some of the most realistic prices to be found in Northern California.

Not yet in bottle, the 2006 Pinot Noir The North Slope Vineyard is a fuller wine, stronger in color, with a deep ruby/purple tinge and sweet raspberry and cherry notes intermixed with some dried herbs and spice. This has some leafy characteristics in the background, and again a hint of pomegranate and earthiness. It should drink nicely for 5ndash;6 years.

Deep red. Strikingly fresh red and dark berry scents are complicated by sexy Asian spices and flowers. The palate offers lively strawberry and black raspberry flavors, silky texture and a late note of candied rose. Finishes sweet, focused and very long, with the spice note repeating.

With great care and small yields this wine is a perfect example of the quality that most have come to expect from this upper echelon producer, showing ripe cherry and raspberries on the nose and palate it ends with a bright acidity and sophistication.
