Dark ruby/purple, the 2015 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane offers plenty of spring flower garden notes intermixed with blueberry and blackcurrant fruit. It is rich, textured, builds incrementally on the palate and finishes after a good 35-40+ seconds. This is a beauty and should drink well up to a decade or more.
This is an enviable winery run by Stephen Hansel with exceptionally high-quality Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs that he sells at modest prices, which speaks to his humility and commitment to serious wine consumers. There are more than 80 acres of estate, so it is not small, split evenly between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. He breaks the cuvées down by their vineyard terroir/site.
