VinousHansel's 2014 Pinot Noir The South Slope Vineyard is bold and explosive, with tons of exuberant fruit. Bright red cherry, plum, rose petal and spice are front and center. A classic Russian River Pinot, the South Slope is absolutely gorgeous today. Hints of leather, tobacco and game underpin a core of flamboyant Russian River Pinot fruit. The 2014 is every bit as impressive as it was last year.

Wine AdvocateAs for the 2014 Pinot Noir South Slope, this wine shows elegant black cherry and strawberry notes, and come across like a Premier Cru Cote de Beaune. The wine has a dark ruby color, sweet tannin and a nice, plump, round, juicy mouthfeel."
