    November 8, 2017 - First Pinot of the night (blind).

    Dark ruby color. Nose showing black cherry and earth. Palate was dark fruit profile, black raspberry, spice, earth. Medium/full weight, long finish. Some bitterness in mid palate.

    Was very tight when first open, better when tasted later in the evening.

    January 5, 2013 - A good drinking, ripe and juicy wine. The nose features ripe pinot fruit with a deep bass undertone of clove-like spice. The mouthfeel is soft but formless as the wine has little tannin, though adequate acidity keeps it from flabbiness. Ripe and sweet fruit dominate the palate with a medium-length cola finish. An identical wine with more structure would be worth a higher score.

    August 8, 2012 - COLOR: Dark deep red
    NOSE: Black cherry & raspberry with a hint of spices
    MOUTH: Cherry, cola and spice
    OVERALL: Great musty dry tannins for a nice medium long finish. Very nice mouth feel and drinking very nicely. My guess is this is at it's peak now. Opened at a #WW party alongside 07 Sea Smoke Botella, 07 Archery Summit Red Hills and 08 Lynmar Hawk Hills. All were very nice but this Hanson was the top hit of the party.

    February 11, 2012 - Surprising wine, that finished in the top 5 of a blind tasting of 12 2006 Oregon Pinot's.

    July 9, 2011 - Rich, tasty sweet brambly black raspberry with a soft, smooth feel; I would mistake this for a Rhone-style wine rather than a pinot noir.
