Walter Hansel Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Cuvée Alyce 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 Walter Hansel Pinot Noir Cuvee Alyce shows strong pomegranate notes intermixed with red currants, earth, spice box, and underbrush. It is deep ruby with a purple tinge, shows sweet fruit, medium body, and elegance in an almost Morey St.-Denis premier cru-like style. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. A terrific source of sensational Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays made very much in the style of the wines proprietor Stephen Hansel loves the most, white and red Burgundies, this 80-acre estate continues to build on a brilliant track record of high quality wines offered to consumers at sensationally fair prices.RP Wine Advocate # 174 Dec 2007 This is a California Wine.

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
