Hanzell Chardonnay 2008

Wine Enthusiast 92"Lots of fresh, zingy acidity in this dry, young Chardonnay, and the steely minerality gives it a tang of cold metal. There are tantalizing hints of ripe citrus fruit and apricots. Give it 45 years in the cellar to come around." ~S.H.

Hanzell Chardonnay 2005
90  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 90"A ripe, flashy style, showing a burst of pear, apple, melon and citrus, with a dash of hazelnut and spice. Complex and well-proportioned. Drink now through 2011. 4,636 cases made."

Hanzell Pinot Noir 2005
90  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 90"Notably earthy in a pleasant way, with mineral, pebble, sage and dried currant flavors that are compact and focused, yet long and persistent on the finish. Best from 2009 through 2017."

Hanzell Chardonnay 2004
92  Wine Spectator 
 Wine Spectator 92 "Shows terrific aromas, serving up a beam of citrus-infused pear, apple and melon fruit, enlivened by firm acidity. The finish sails on, revealing a tight band of fruit. Very impressive. This is a wine with a track record for aging. Drink now through 2013. 4,200 cases made. –JL"
