ROBERT PARKER RATING: 90 - 92
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2008 Pinot Noir Hansel Family Vineyards (dry-farmed vineyards planted with Pinot selections taken from the Rochioli vineyards) exhibits crisp red cherry, sassafras, and autumnal, earthy vegetative notes, medium to full body, pure red and black fruits, and a heady finish. It should be consumed during its first 5-7 years of life.
STEVE TANZAR RATING: 90
STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Light, bright red. Spicy red berries and cherry on the nose, with a faintly medicinal aspect that fades with aeration. Pliant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are given spine and lift by zesty minerality. Very fresh pinot, with a firm, focused finish that leaves bitter cherry skin and pit notes behind.
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.
