In this range, the 2014 Pinot Noir The North Slope Vineyard comes across as quite reticent and tightly wound. The dark, intense flavor profile of the vintage is very much in evidence, but the 2014 needs time to come together. That should not be much of an issue, as the North Slope probably won't be released before 2017.

Robert Parker
The 2014 Pinot Noir North Slope is fabulous, has a huge upside to it and probably will benefit from several years of bottle age. All of these were scheduled to be bottled in 2015. This is 100% clone 115 and Stephen Hansel says it’s the most fruit-forward of the wines. It is certainly seductive, hedonistic, with a dense ruby/purple color, beautiful black raspberry and black cherry fruit, a big medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, loads of glycerin and hedonism. It should turn out to be exceptional, but I do think it needs some time after it’s bottled to start its full potential.

Walter Hansel var en livslang vinenthusiast som i 1978 besluttede sig for at plante 250 vinstokke. I slutningen af 80-erne var turen kommet til hans søn Stephen Hansel, som besluttede sig for at udvide arealet og samtidig begynde en proces hvor man senere kunne sælge af vinen.&nbsp Første kommercielle årgang var i 1996 hvor man producerede 5000 kasser af Pinot Noir og Chardonnay. Der produceres både Estate og Enkeltmarksvine, alle vine som på hver deres måde udtrykker klon, jord, placering og klima.
