Short, sharp wine recommendations

Hansel - 2002 North Slope RRV Pinot Noir

What's that I said?  No oak balance in Russian River Valley Pinots? Ah, well, um - I take it back.  This earthy funky elegant bottle screams old-school Burgundy, and wowed a room of New-World-jaded oenophiles at a recent tasting.  This is the kind of wine you search for immediately the next day (ahem, which is exactly why it's out of stock at JJ Buckley right now, haha - my posse snatched it all up). Here's the only place I'm seeing it on wine-searcher as of today.  Walter Hansel just kills it.
