Wine Advocate | Rating: 91From one of the famous iconic sites associated with Williams Selyem, juicy black and red currants, cherries, crushed rock and spice jump from the glass of the dark ruby 2013 Pinot Noir Precious Mountain Vineyard. It is medium to full-bodied, still tannic and youthful, and a likely candidate for improvement over the next 5-6 years. Moreover, it should last 15 or more.Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 88Very tight and detailed, with a taut core of mineral-laced red and dark berry, turning somewhat simpler on the finish.Author: James Laube
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.
