A Pinot Noir that will please every palate.
I mean it:. This Pinot Noir is so good I’ll recommend it, without reservations, to both Pinot-philes and my Cab-loving customers. The red cherry and berry fruits are so dark, so deep. It is Rich with a capital R. Walter Hansel “South Slope” 2021 transcends varietal preferences. And yet the lavender, red rose and licorice flavors and suave tennins define it’s Pinot-ness. Outer Spacers: This Pinot Noir has got it all!
Shelf-talker notes: “Dark, vibrant ruby-red color. Black plums and dark red berry/cherry flavors with nutmeg, allspice, red roses and tarragon. 2/3rd new Francois Freres oak is DEVOURED by the deep, dark, lip-smacking-good berry/cherry flavors…the gorgeous Pinot Noir fruit is the star! It’s a great Pinot to drink with beef filet, roast duck, cedar plank salmon and wild mushroom omelettes.”
