(bottled at 14.0%) Lovely and expressive soft red pinot and ripe cherry fruit aromas that possess subtle undertones of sandalwood and spice combine with forward, soft, suave and velvety middle weight flavors that offer good if not special intensity and solid persistence. There is a trace of warmth on the moderately long finish and this is already sufficiently forward that it could be approached now though it should reward 4 to 6 years of cellar time.

Much better than the last bottle. Floral with red berries on the nose. Flavors of red raspberry, wild strawberry and candied red cherry with notes of dried rose petals. Tannins almost fully integrated. Soft on the palate still with good freshness. Nice rounded, lingering 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.
