Bright ruby. Deep, vibrant aromas of black raspberry, red cherry, rose petal, black pepper and oak spices. Densely packed but sharply delineated, with juicy, intense dark berry and cherry compote flavors. For an ample wine this comes as shockingly linear. Finishes with ripe tannins, excellent persistence and a clinging floral note.

The 2009 Pinot Noir The South Slope comes from the highest elevation parcel owned by Hansel, a 7-acre sector planted with Dijon Clone 777. Another impressive Pinot, it exhibits a more full-bodied, intense style with lots of black cherry, raspberry, foresty, floral notes, a sensational texture, a rich, concentrated, opulent mouthfeel, and a long, luxurious finish. This stunning Pinot Noir is already providing plenty of pleasure and it should continue to do so for 7–8 years.

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: 2009-2016.

Vintage: 2007 09/27/2011

From the estate's highest elevation Pinot Noir vineyard, the 2008 Pinot Noir The South Slope (all from Dijon Clone 777) boasts a dark ruby color as well as abundant amounts of dark raspberry and kirsch liqueur-like fruit intermixed with hints of forest floor and flowers. Tightly-knit in the finish, with a hint of minerality, and beautiful texture, it is a promising Pinot that should evolve for a decade. These are consistently terrific wines, seemingly regardless of the vintage conditions. Moreover, they are realistically priced, and wine consumers couldn't have a better friend than proprietor Stephan Hansel.
