Virtual Tasting: Walter Hansel "North Slope" Pinot Noir

$47.50

Join us virtually this Friday at 6:30 as we taste another high quality wine from California. Specifically, we are going to the Russian River Valley to taste the amazing Walter Hansel Winery "North Slope" Pinot Noir.

This begins four feet from the end of the South slope and continues to slope to the North. It is 100% French clone 115. The close proximity to the South slope does not influence these flavors as clone 115 exhibits the most fruit driven flavors and appears more "New World" then French.

Critical Acclaim:

94pts. Vinous

The 2017 Pinot Noir The North Slope Vineyard is one of the more voluptuo us, racy wines in this range. Ample and creamy, with tremendous resonance, the 2017 has a lot to offer. Plush fruit and silky tannins add to the wine's considerable immediacy and overall appeal.

93pts. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pinot Noir The North Slope has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and scents of Bing cherry, blackberries, tart cranberry, dried citrus peel, tobacco leaf and tree bark with dried rose petals. It's medium-bodied, silky and intense with nuanced fruits, grainy tannins and juicy freshness, finishing very long and savory. 1,070 cases produced.
