($27) Good medium-deep red. Aromas of cherry, strawberry, redcurrant, flowers and roasted nuts. Juicy, spicy red fruit flavors offer good cut and inner-mouth perfume. Shows a slightly cool medicinal aspect, but comes across as juicy, ample and persistent, with enticing sweetness of fruit. Hints of strawberry and soft herbs.

Very rich, complex and concentrated, with earth, anise, wild berry, cherry and citrus notes. Acidity gives it a vibrant backbone, and the finish is intense and focused. 976 cases made.

Nice Pinot fruit. Gentle and more floral. Not as concentrated. Rose petals, subtle red berry notes. Decent finish.

About This Producer


The emergence of Williams Selyem as one of California's Pinot Noir leaders is an improbable success story. Founders Burt Williams and Ed Selyem started making wine under the Hacienda del Rio Winery label in a garage in Fulton. Their first wine was a 1981 Zinfandel, but very soon after they began their quest for great Pinot Noir. By the late 1980s, Williams had retired as a typesetter and Selyem had left his job as a wine retailer, and they devoted themselves full-time to winemaking. In 1997, John Dyson bought the winery with plans of planting a 20-acre Russian River vineyard and gradually expanded production. Williams continued to make wine into 2000, after which time Bob Cabral, formerly of Alderbrook and Hartford Court, took over as Executive winemaker.

Quality across the board is exceptionally high, with especially notable Pinot Noirs. There are no secrets to Williams Selyem's success: they seek low yield, fully ripened grapes from superb vineyard sources.
