1979 Hanzell Pinot Noir

Community Tasting Note


Saturday, July 13, 2019 - Blind: Guessed early '80's Ridge Monte Bello.

For me, the nose was dominated by "oak" and I use that term loosely because I wasn't sure, could this have been aged in Redwood? There is light plum fruit, cassis, and Dill. It finishes with a Carmel note. Rioja? American oak? What, Pinot Noir!?! Schooled again.
