93 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"More tropical in character with lots of orange marmalade and peach jam notes is the 2012 Chardonnay Cahill Lane, which comes 100% from Old Wente clones planted in Goldridge soils. Stephen Hansel told me that yields tend to be relatively large because of the fertility of the vineyard. Notes of pineapples, honeysuckle, buttered popcorn and apricot marmalade are buttressed by good acidity, an elegant yet full-throttle mouthfeel and a delicious, long, dry finish. It should drink well for 5-6 years."

93 Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous

"The Chardonnay Cahill Lane is the brightest of the three 2012 Chardonnays I tasted. Lemon oil, white flowers, almonds and mint are all laced together in a finely knit, super-refined Chardonnay long on balance and class. This is a terrific showing. The large crop has resulted in a relatively open, expressive Cahill Lane that can be enjoyed upon release."

92 Pts Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

"Light yellow-gold. Spice-accented citrus and pit fruits on the nose and in the mouth. Fleshy and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering juicy nectarine and Meyer lemon flavors and a touch of honey. Fleshy and silky in texture, with very good concentration and a long, gently sweet finish that repeats the honey and pit fruit flavors. "


Winery Tasting Notes
"From 100% Old Wente clone planted in Goldridge soils. Notes of pineapple, honeysuckle, buttered popcorn and apricot marmalade are buttressed by good acidity, an elegant yet full-throttle mouthfeel and delicious, long, dry finish. The large crop resulted in a relatively open, expressive Cahill Lane that can be enjoyed upon release. 1085 cases produced."

Robert Parker on Walter Hansel Winery
"Combining quality with reasonable prices and estate-grown grapes, you can't do much better than Stephen Hansel's Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. He has also recently opened an excellent bistro called Walter Hansel Wine and Bistro at the site of a venue previously known as Zazu on Guerneville Road in Santa Rosa. Sadly, it officially opened the day I flew out of San Francisco. The 2012 Chardonnays had just been bottled when I tasted them, and the Pinot Noirs were all tasted from barrel. Hansel has over 40 acres of Pinot Noir planted with four separate clones. His wines tend to spend one year in oak prior to being bottled. They are always 100% destemmed, enjoy a 5-day cold soak, and around 60% new Francois Freres oak barrels are used during the aging process. Malolactic is always done in barrel rather than tank. The clonal material largely comes from Tom Rochioli’s holdings on the West Side Road in Russian River. The Rochioli clone is occasionally supplemented by the Swan clone and several of the more modern French Dijon clones such as 115 and 777."
