Wine of the Week: 2009 Walter Hansel Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

From Hansel Family Vineyards comes this fine expression of Russian River Pinot. Round and silky, with a beautiful balance and taste of red plums and black cherries, the 2009 is a splurge, but worth it for a California Pinot of this quality.

Save it for a special dinner party to have with roasted or braised duck, braised short ribs or some meaty lamb chops.
