Bright red. Deep, smoky and wild, with a complex bouquet of red berries, cherry, smoked meat and mocha. Chewy red and dark fruit flavors offer very good depth, with dusty tannins adding support. Finishes with solid grip and slightly chunky tannins. Seems backward and a touch rustic today.

The 2007 Pinot Noir Estate, which comes from the Rochioli clone of Pinot Noir, exhibits sandy, loamy soil notes intermixed with sweet raspberry and black cherries. The wine is medium to full-bodied, displays noble ripe tannins, and good freshness. This wine should drink nicely for 5-6 years.

Bright red. Lively redcurrant and strawberry on the nose, with suave mineral and floral qualities adding complexity. Nervy red fruit flavors are tightly wound, slowly unfurling to offer character. The lively, focused finish features clean red berry and mineral qualities. These grapes are all Rochioli clones.

The 2008 Pinot Noir Hansel Family Vineyards (dry-farmed vineyards planted with Pinot selections taken from the Rochioli vineyards) exhibits crisp red cherry, sassafras, and autumnal, earthy vegetative notes, medium to full body, pure red and black fruits, and a heady finish. It should be consumed during its first 5-7 years of life.

From Dijon clone 777, the 2007 Pinot Noir South Slope is from the highest elevation of any of the Hansel vineyards (and there are 80 acres). It has deep plum and pomegranate notes with hints of sassafras and wood spice. The wine displays a nice, subtle smokiness, medium to full body, good acidity, and a long finish. Unfortunately, there is very little made. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2016.
