The result of the unique growing season and the evolution of the winemaking is a wine that has a powerful and nuanced aromatic presence and retains the structural elements that have predicated the cellar-worthiness of Hanzell Pinot Noir.
Tea leaf, cigar tobacco, espresso, blackberry, cured meat and wet cedar give this vintage a dark aromatic tone. The aroma gives the impression of a warm, humid forest, rather than the dry mineral signature of previous vintages. A firm grip from the abundant tannin holds the palate tightly and provides endurance to the deceptively lush feel.
