International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91($62) Deep, saturated red. Rich cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by mocha, vanilla and gingerbread. Deep, palate-staining cherry-vanilla and blackberry flavors are medium in body and nicely framed by supple tannins. The tannins build on the long, sappy, clinging finish. A big, rich, full-throttle pinot that will win no awards for finesse but delivers serious flavor impact.Author: Josh RaynoldsIssue: May/June 2008
Wine Spectator | Rating: 88A fresh, snappy style, with wild berry, black cherry and mineral notes that are tight and focused, ending with a pleasant earthy edge.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 88From Anderson Valley, the 2006 Pinot Noir Ferrington Vineyard always exhibits that cool-climate, blue fruit character, with raspberries and pomegranates. It is fresh, almost flinty, with medium body as well as good depth and ripeness.Author: Robert Parker

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.
