Walter Hansel South Slope Pinot Noir 2017

Russian River Valley, CA

93 pts. Vinous:

"The 2017 Pinot Noir The South Slope Vineyard offers terrific richness as well as structure.  Freshly cut flowers, hard candy, mint and fresh berry flavors meld in a Pinot laced with striking energy, inner sweetness and complexity.  Silky tannins add character as this creamy, open-knit Pinot shows off its alluring personality."

92 pts. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir South Slope (all dijon clone 777) has a savory nose of toast, dried leaves, pipe tobacco, dried rose petals, amaro and tangerine peel with a core of blackberries and cranberries.  The palate is medium-bodied and silky with fine, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long."
