Wow! Is there a better, more classic, lush, overdelivering pinot in this price range? That's a firm NO! ONLY 22 CASES!

It's not just us. Walter Hansel in Sonoma has been making high-scoring, crowd-pleasing, utterly delicious pinot and chardonnay for decades, while BARELY raising prices since the 90s!! How do they do it? Don't ask, just GET some! This is the tete de cuvee pinot -- did we mention 96 points? Special occasion juice for a rock-solid price -- awesome. Read the review!

Don't delay a moment more than necessary...while it lasts!

About the Producer

"My father, Walter, loved to grow everything from kiwi to oriental pears and more. In the 1970's he enlisted my help to plant 257 chardonnay vines. Throughout the 1980's our entire family would harvest the half acre of grapes and my father and I would make the wine; filling two barrels, which equaled 50 cases of wine. Initially these wines were hard to drink, but with the help of my friend, Tom Rochioli, I developed a passion to understand everything about the vineyards and the process of making wine. This passion influenced my quest for growing World-class wines. Since our first commercial vintage in 1996, I have learned with every harvest that you must listen to vine; react to Mother Nature and ALWAYS compromise quantity for quality."

96 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2018 Pinot Noir Cuvée Alyce opens slowly to alluring aromas of smoked cranberries, red cherries and black raspberries laced with licorice, bergamot and dried lavender. The palate is medium-bodied and super silky with addicting freshness, absolutely packed with layered, detailed flavors, and it finishes very long and elegant. Wow!
