Community Tasting Notes 5

    October 15, 2021 - Beautiful, medium bodied, floral with violets, cherries, sweet, fine tannins, medium finish. Just very enjoyable. Works as both a stand alone wine or a great food wine.

    September 30, 2021 - Great aroma on this. Notes of cherry compote, raspberry, and blended spices. Full and fruit filled on the palate. Delicious.

    September 5, 2021 - This bottle was a little on the ripe(r) side, which was OK since accompanying Spaghetti with a Spicy Italian Sausage & 3 Tomato red sauce. Also, followed by a full-bodied Cab. Rating, based on if drank without food.

    July 21, 2021 - First of nearly a case that I just picked up…and non-critical consumption, in a social setting but as expected, I like it!
    (More to come, in/from future bottles.)

    May 13, 2021 - Hansel's 2018 South Slope Vineyard Pinot is a deep ruby wine that is packed with Bing cherries, raspberries, orange zest, pickling spice and dried earth. Full-bodied (for the varietal), freshly acidic and with nicely integrated alcohol (14.5%), it supports its bright fruit with medium sweet tannins and a modicum of oak. Dense on the middle palate and lengthy on the back end, this is a delicious Russian River Pinot that delivers the appellation's beautiful fruit along with enough structure to ensure plenty of pleasure throughout the decade. Drink now-2030.
