2010 Walter Hansel Pinot Noir Estate Vineyards Russian River Valley

Lovely nose of strawberries. Gorgeous fruit on the palate, cherries, deeply flavored strawberry. Bright and lively. Warm spices on the midpalate. Firm, fine tannins, bright acidity, great balance. Lush fruit on the finish. Drinking beautifully right now and I would say for at least another 3 to 4 years. "A"

Walter Hansel is a mostly undiscovered gem of a winery. The chards are also very impressive. All the wines are fairly priced. I think they suffer from confusion with Hanzell Winery. Their Las Vegas distributor also feels the owners are difficult to deal with, which translates into a lack of retail presence. K and L handles the wines and has a good selection.

We visited there this past June. I don't know about the owners, but we were treated quite well. I've found their pinots to be uniformly excellent and they age well.
