2016 Walter Hansel Pinot Noir South Slope...$42.99

Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir South Slope displays a very fruity nose of crushed blackberries and raspberries with delicate hints of smoked meats, tar and dusty soil with a waft of red roses. Medium-bodied, tightly wound and with a very lively line of acid, it has a firm, grainy texture and long mineral-laced finish. 1,064 cases produced.
Rated 93+/100 Wine Advocate
he 2016 Pinot Noir The South Slope Vineyard is broad, ample and creamy, within the mid-weight style of the year. As is the case with all of these Pinots, the South Slope boasts terrific fruit presence and density. One of the most immediate and giving of these wines today.
