Walter Hansel Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Cuvée Alyce 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

92-94 points Robert Parker: The flagship Pinot Noir, the 2007 Pinot Noir Cuvee Alyce, comes from clones 115 and 777, and from the lowest yielding block of vineyards. Sweet black cherry intermixed with some forest floor, smoked herbs, and distinctive, almost truffle-like notes jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. This is one of the most concentrated of the 2007s, but retains terrific acidity as well as sweet tannin, and offers a provocative, bold style of Pinot Noir that should drink nicely for up to a decade. (Dec 2008)

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
