Rökta chark, peppar, söt mogen frukt utan något större djup i doften. I smaken aningen för syltig frukt med vanilj och mortadello. Hög syra och samtidigt lite hetta. Lång eftersmak men saknar någon riktigt balans
Powerful nose with smoked meats, smoked sausage, liquor, alcohol and smoked dark overpowering bramble jammy oaked and smoked sweet fruit. Like a new world Shiraz. The palate follows the nose, overextracted, unbalanced, cooked, sweet, candied, fat and jammy bramble, black blueberries and smoked plum marmalade. Tannins are big, oak is brutal. The whole impression is brutal and unbalanced, lacking any signs of complexity or transparency. All – in fruit, jam and alcohol bomb. No signs of pinot Noir present, but like a new world experimental Shiraz or perhaps Zinfandle from some outskirts of some desert growing place. As you might be able to tell from above, this is not my type of Pinot, and my score reflects that. There are probably allot of people who likes this style, and if you are one of them, you will probably love this. I myself will avoid this stuff. (70 – 72)
Walter Hansel vs. Grand Cru Burgundy (Bin 75): Dull garnet, see through; spice, cranberry, cola, strawberry, cherry, rhubarb, clove, brown sugar; rich, sweet cherry and cranberry on the palate, spice, tart and taut, some stem and mint showed through with air; very good, Burgundian.
