More Vintages and Sizes of Williams Selyem - Pinot Noir Russian River Valley:

(bottled at 14.3%) While similar in character, here the fruit aromas are slightly more deeply pitched than those of the Sonoma coast and lead to noticeably fuller and richer flavors that retain the same detail and precision on the moderately more complex and persistent finish. Delicious but not simple.

($45) Deep red. Captivating, perfumed bouquet of spicy raspberry, blackberry and fresh rose. Sappy and broad, with deep but energetic red fruit flavors, supple texture and no obvious tannins. Gains power on the finish, which delivers a wallop of sweet raspberry and candied blackcurrant.

The 2006 Pinot Noir Russian River, which is primarily from their estate vineyards, is a beauty, showing nice, earthy, berry fruit, with hints of strawberry, underbrush, and loamy soil notes.

Solid Williams Selyem wine. A bit more tart than other RRV pinots by Williams Selyem. Good fruit but not round

Not bad, not great, nothing that blows your mind. Just consistently nice. Was better about 7 months ago...could be bottle variation.
Color: Muddled, cloudy medium red in color. Not a big color/clirity guy, but very noticeable.
Nose: Earthy, some burt orange, whiffs of alcohol. Some flowers and cherry.
Palate: Some minerality, red berry and cherry, finsih a little short.
