- Hanzell Chardonnay Sebella 2011 Product #27364 (In Stock)
From Hanzell's more forward lots of the vintage, this is tangy, almost Chablis-like, and very, very, delicious.
"Fermented in stainless steel and aged in neutral oak; the malolactic fermentation was blocked. Clear straw-yellow. Slightly metallic aromas and flavors of apple, quince, white peach and mint. Fresh and firm-edged if a bit rigid in the mouth, with a mineral component adding to the wine's flavor interest but accentuating the youthfully tart character."International Wine Cellar 89 points
- Hanzell Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2009 Product #26887 (In Stock)
One of the oldest operating wineries in Sonoma, Hanzell delivers Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that blend Burgundian elegance with Sonoma ripeness and depth. Like all Hanzell estate wines, this 2009 Pinot is built to cellar (and needs a couple of hours of air right now). Complex aromas of pomegranate and cherry with accents of rose petal and spice. With air, orange peel and sweet tobacco notes unfold to match the deep flavors of blackberry, ripe red fruits, and spice. A citrus oil note and squirt of acid keeps everything in balance and the fine tannins will support another decade or more in cellar.
"Fresh and snappy, with firm tannins and a core of mineral-laced wild berry, mocha, cedar and dried berry notes. Shows great structure, depth, focus and persistence. A great cellar choice. Drink now through 2022."Wine Spectator 93 points
