(bottled at 14.1%) A high-toned and very pinot nose of red raspberry and sweet cherries complements the light to barely medium weight flavors that are delicious, open and already accessible yet have the balance and underlying structure to improve for a few years. A pretty and very fruit-driven effort that is by no means simple.

($29) Medium red. Enticing aromas of strawberry, cherry and spices. Gentle, ripe and full, with a warm, broad flavor of strawberry. Not especially complex but pretty and accessible.

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.
