The Best Value/Dollar Cost Average Pinot Producer in California with another 95 Point score!


 

I have said it before, and I will say it again, Walter Hansel has been synonymous with great quality at a great price! The venture started in 1978 with 3 barrels of Pinot Noir, and decades later… they are still putting out great quality wines at a very affordable price!

Robert Parker 95 Points: “The 2018 Pinot Noir The North Slope has a medium ruby-purple color with deep aromas of cranberries, blackberries and rhubarb accented by blood orange, pipe tobacco and forest floor. The palate is medium-bodied, both powerful and elegant, with concentrated, detailed flavors, a silky, fresh frame and long, lifted finish.”

Tasting Notes: “The 2018 Pinot Noir The North Slope Vineyard is ample and creamy, with terrific depth and tons of Russian River generosity.  Black cherry, plum, mocha, spice and licorice all open up in this beautifully resonant, expansive Pinot.  Floral overtones and bright acids add vibrancy to play off the racy, soft Russian River curves.  Best of all, the 2018 well drink well with minimal cellaring.

Robert Parker 94 Points: “The 2018 Pinot Noir Estate, aged in 60% new François Frères barrels, has a medium ruby color and aromas of cured meats, red and black cherries, graphite, dried earth and tobacco leaves. The medium-bodied, satiny palate explodes with concentrated earth- and spice-laced fruits, gently grainy, super fresh and finishing very long and uplifted.”

Tasting Notes: The 2018 Pinot Noir The Estate Vineyard is bright, floral and super-expressive.  Rose petal, lavender, red/purplish berry fruit and spice open up in a mid-weight nuanced Pinot loaded with personality.  The Estate has so much character.  Readers will find an understated, beautifully restrained Russian River Pinot.  Floral notes reaper on the finish, adding lift.  This is such a pretty wine.
