Review:

Planted just under the famous tree that the vineyard is named after, the Hanson block is on a steep slope that looks down on the rest of the vineyard. Winemaker Steven Westby described the wine as having "concentrated fruit flavors with earth and mineral, planted around 1999 with innovative tight vine spacing and dry farmed for intensity."

The 2009 Witness Tree "Hanson" Pinot Noir is a full-bodied powerhouse Pinot Noir. Its color is dark and brooding with strong aromas of leather, sassafras, ripe strawberries and baking spices with a tinge of cherry cola. In the mouth the wine coats the palate with loads of juicy bing cherries, plums and other dark forest berries coupled with nuances of warm earth, tobacco and a touch of French oak. The finish is long, lingering and thought provoking. Indeed a collectors Pinot Noir, this is one to lay down for that special occasion, and truly showcases how pinot can provide both finesse and power. Only 95 cases were made. - the winery
