Tasting so good and amazing with food. It had just a lovely mouthfeel. No formal notes but it was the wine of the night. — a month ago
Delicious medium body with aromas of red cherries, raspberries, and blueberries. — 7 days ago
Dried raspberry, carnation, rose petal, and ripest plum, with palm leaf and cocoanut nose. Cherry and raspberry conspire on the palate to reign in the fruitiness with tart expressions. Very low tannic profile outside the fruit, with a violet side shuffle and pleasant touch of blackberry.

Popped and poured. Enjoyed over three days and it was more or less consistent throughout. No formal notes. The 2017’s are beautifully balanced with deep, dark fruit; a combination of ripe and dried (but mostly on the riper end of the spectrum) mixed with some lovely baking spices too. Secondary characteristics have not yet entered the frame. Was an awesome pairing with grilled burgers. Drink now or over the next 10-15 years easy. — 18 hours ago
Industrialist James D. Zellerbach acquired the 200 acre Hanzell estate on the Mayacamas slopes in 1948, in 1952 he planted 2 acres of Pinot Noir and 4 acres of Chardonnay on the site. Aromas of red fruits and floral scents with notes of cola and tea. On the palate flavors of cherry, dried raspberry, brewed tea and cola with floral and spicy notes. Smooth tannins, long finish, great balance, ending with earthy mineral tones. Something Special from the oldest Pinot Noir vines in Western Hemisphere. — 11 days ago
Loads of cherry. Too much maybe. Velvety. Too much maybe. Lacking acidity, balanced and earthiness. Good wine jut not very good to exceptional. — 20 days ago
