Walter Hansel Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley the South Slope Vineyard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2010 Pinot Noir South Slope is considerably firmer than the 2009. Firm, yet well-balanced tannins support cinnamon, cloves, dark cherries and licorice. The 2010 shows excellent energy and verve, but it naturally needs time in bottle to come together. I especially like the energy and focus here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. (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
