The 2017 Pinot Noir The Estate Vineyard offers an intriguing combination of the raciness of the vintage, but with plenty of underlying structure and more than enough freshness to keep things in balance. Dark cherry, plum, spice and floral notes are all nicely delineated in this vibrant, super-expressive Pinot Noir from Hansel. I really like the energy here.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Estate, aged in 60% new François Frères barrels, is pale to medium ruby-purple and offers pretty aromas of spiced cranberry sauce, clove, dried orange peel and black tea leaves with shaved nutmeg, raspberry and strawberry preserves, blackberries and dried flowers. Medium-bodied and very silky with loads of ripe, spicy fruits, it has juicy acidity and soft, grainy tannins, finishing long and very spicy. Give this another couple years in bottle.
