    As for the 2013 Pinot Noir Calegari Vineyard, this is a deeply hued, dark ruby/purple Pinot Noir. It shows wonderfully sweet raspberry and cherry fruit, some attractive minerality, medium to full body, and outstanding purity and depth. It is another impressive effort from Williams Selyem to drink over the next decade.

    Bright and lively, with a zesty mix of spicy, delicate cherry and raspberry notes, shaded by lightly smoky, toasty oak. Ends with a long, clean, elegant aftertaste.

    The 2013 Pinot Noir Calegari Vineyard is bold and juicy to the core, yet also has terrific supporting structure to balance things out. Super-ripe raspberry, rose petal and tobacco notes give the wine its racy, succulent personality. The Calegari fleshes out nicely on the mid-palate and finish, where the wine shows striking vertical depth. This is very nicely done.

    There is a vaguely liqueur-like quality to the essence of red cherry and dark raspberry suffused nose that evidences a background nuance of menthol. The suave, round and seductively textured medium weight flavors possess solid mid-palate density while offering reasonably good depth and persistence on the balanced and sappy finish. Note that while this should be capable of rewarding mid-term cellaring it is sufficiently forward such that it could also be enjoyed young.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
