Walter Hansel Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Cuvee Alyce 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2010 Pinot Noir Cuvee Alyce is surprisingly plush and deep in this vintage. This is a more overt, fruit-driven style than I would have expected considering the year. Black cherries, currants, licorice and tobacco saturate the palate in this fleshy, deep Pinot. The 2010 Cuvee Alyce is all about rich, textured fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. (Feb 2012)

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
