Walter Hansel 2014 'Cahill Lane' Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

Walter Hansel

94 Points - new release!                                                                     
Another beautiful small-production Pinot Noir from Walter Hansel who continues to make a small amount of Pinot Noir down the road from Kistler, at unbelievably sane prices.  As a result they always sell out quickly. Stock up while it's available.

94 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous):
"The 2014 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane Vineyard is deep, pliant and explosive. The 2014 is defined by its striking aromatics, lovely inner perfume and sheer concentration. Violets, lavender, mint, spice and plum meld into the juicy, inviting finish. Today, the 2014 Cahill Lane is dazzling. It's a simple as that."

93+ Points Robert Parker:  "The 2014 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane, from Dijon clones 115 and 114, is from the highest elevation site on the vineyard. It tends to be one of the more reserved Pinot Noirs, hence its later release. This wine exhibits lovely pomegranate, black cherry and black raspberry fruit, a deep, pure medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, light tannin and good acidity. This is a beautiful, refreshing and complex Pinot Noir. Drink 2017-2030. All of these Pinot Noirs are bottled unfined and unfiltered just like the Chardonnays...

...This is an enviable winery run by Stephen Hansel with exceptionally high-quality Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs that he sells at modest prices, which speaks to his humility and commitment to serious wine consumers. There are more than 80 acres of estate, so it is not small, split evenly between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. He breaks the cuvées down by their vineyard terroir/site."
