2012 Walter Hansel "Cuvee Alyce" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Cuvée Alyce, a blend of clones 115 and 777 grown in heavy clay soils, was made from tiny yields of one ton of fruit per acre. There are 1,125 cases of this stunning Pinot.

2012 Emeritus Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Top Pick!
2012 Emeritus Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Wine & Spirits: "In 2012 the dry-farmed vines at Hallberg gave a simple, welcoming pinot noir with dark fruit that suggests black plum and blueberry. The plump texture finds its balance against juicy acidity, ready for a pork chop roasted with a sprig of rosemary." (4/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "This is a high-toned, structured wine with vibrant acidity that is layered in earth, spice, raspberry and black tea. After a medium-sized weight to the midpalate, it finishes soft and round." (2/2015)

2010 Alysian "Russian River Selection" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Connoisseurs Guide: "If not a wine for fans of extract and high ripeness, this relatively mild-mannered offering is both balanced and accessible with a good fix on Pinot Noir. It very much follows the Alysian model in that it is lithe and light on its feet, and it tenaciously hangs on to plenty of buoyant, red-cherry fruit even as it takes a turn to last-minute tartness." (10/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Musky red berries, cherry pit and dried flowers on the nose.

Dark red cherries, blueberries, cloves, lavender and mint flesh out in a juicy Russian River Pinot full of near-term appeal. There is a savory, delicate quality in the 2013 that makes it irresistible. About 40% of this fruit is estate."
