    The 2007 Chardonnay Heintz Vineyard reveals a slightly brighter light gold color as well as sensational aromatics of ripe peaches, apricots, honeysuckle, brioche, creme brulee, and caramelized citrus. Terrific acidity, gorgeous fruit, concentration, texture, and overall balance suggest a wine that will easily last a decade. This is a beauty.

    ($50) Chartreuse-tinged yellow. Smoky orchard fruits on the nose, with floral honey and smoky lees adding complexity. Completely coats the palate with deep peach pit, orchard fruit and mineral flavors. Ripe but dry, with excellent clarity and a strong smoke- and mineral-driven finish. This wine's power is something else.

    Intense and concentrated, with a mix of tangy citrus, cedary oak, grapefruit and green apple. Full-bodied, with a pleasant earthy edge, adding to its complexity. Drink now through 2016. 274 cases made. 'JL

    This is very distinctive and balance Chardonnay has a structure, green fruit, smooth tannins and nice oak it's well balance that is very round and pleasurable and shall last couple of years in such nice drinking and maybe could gain more complexities.

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.
