2021 Walter Hansel Cahill Lane Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #5063463
Winery Notes- A blend of 3 clones, clone 114, clone 115, and the Rochioli Pommard clone, are grown each on its own one acre site. The vines were planted in 1989 and are in their peak, quality wise. The Rochioli pommard and the clone 115 contribute red berry and cherry flavors and the clone 114 adds a dimension of herbal flavors giving Cahill Lane an Old world character.
VINOUS REVIEW: The 2021 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane Vineyard is a nuanced, sensual wine. Bright red/purplish fruit, blood orange, spice, mint and hard candy infuse the 2021 with lovely depth. This mid-weight, pliant Pinot is a real charmer. Bright acids and sweet floral accents are wonderful complements to a core of Russian River fruit.
JEB DUNNUCK REVIEW: Pouring a rich magenta color, the 2021 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane Vineyard offers more clarity, with aromas of raspberry liqueur, toasted cedar, and spiced orange peel. Medium to full-bodied, it reveals fine tannins, a silky mouthfeel, and a fresh lift of acidity, with a lingering smoky perfume on the finish. This is an attractive and elegant wine from Walter Hansel.
