This is a 24 hour offering of Walter Hansel's 2014 single vineyard "South Slope" Pinot Noir. So delicious, we thought we'd jump right in with the accolades on this riveting Russian River red:
"Bright red cherry, plum, rose petal and spice are front and center. A classic Russian River Pinot, the South Slope is absolutely gorgeous today. Hints of leather, tobacco and game underpin a core of flamboyant Russian River Pinot fruit." A. Galloni
You would be hard-pressed not to enjoy this Pinot any time of year; but, with Thanksgiving right around the corner be sure to set a few aside as the "bold and explosive" fruit will stand up to the autumnal cuisine and spices of that festive day.
We cannot say enough about the 2014 Walter Hansel South Slope Pinot Noir. It is an "exuberant wine endowed with real depth and class. The flavors are bold and super-expressive throughout....a terrific example of what the Russian River is all about." A. Galloni
