2005 Hanzell Sonoma Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1038273 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The ripeness of this wine stands out. The cherry flavors even have a slightly raisined edge. The wine is also fairly tannic. Additional flavor nuances include tangerine zest, wild raspberry, red currants and white pepper. This is a great Hanzell. Give it until 2010, and it should develop interesting bottle complexities for many years. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (1/2008)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium-deep red. Complex aromas of red plum, raspberry, incense and briary spices. Round, broad and seamless in texture; a bit youthfully tight but opened with air to show raspberry and smoke flavors and an attractive restrained sweetness. Finishes with sweet, dusty tannins and very good length. I like the combination of smoky earth tones and building raspberry sweetness. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2008)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Notably earthy in a pleasant way, with mineral, pebble, sage and dried currant flavors that are compact and focused, yet long and persistent on the finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (1/2008)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The medium dark ruby-colored 2005 Pinot Noir exhibits scents of pomegranate, underbrush, earth, spice, and sweet cherries. Although there are some austere tannins as well as a bit of tightness, there is enough concentration to support the wine’s structure. Give this 2005 1-2 more years of bottle age, and consume it over the following 10-12+ years. (RP) Inner quote mark (1/2008)
