Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

Deep ruby. Riper and more powerful than the Westside Neighbors bottling, displaying aromas of cherry, blackberry, licorice and dark chocolate. Broad, fleshy and warm, with good depth to its dark fruit flavors and a touch of bitter cherry on the back half. The pliant, long finish features repeating dark berry notes. Cabral noted that this is a warmer area than the west side of the river and that these are almost all Dijon clones "so the wine can be expected to be darker in character and more brawny than the Westside."

The 2009 Pinot Noir Eastside Road Neighbors is a precise, beautifully delineated wine bursting with energy and persistence. Dark red cherries, plums, spices and licorice flow gracefully from this mid-weight, pointed wine. The bright acidity makes me think the wine will age quite nicely for a number of years. Some of the vineyards in this blend are Calegari, Black Rose and Lone Oak.

This gorgeous wine is rich and supple, displaying ripe, plummy, black cherry and blackberry fruit that's intense and spicy, pure and focused, with a long, pure, 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.
