Vinous | Rating: 92Sweet red cherries, plums, mint, sweet spices and hard candy meld together in the 2013 Pinot Noir Westside Road Neighbors. The 2013 is quite ripe, racy and bold, yet all the elements are in the right place. Hints of rose petal and lavender grace the silky finish.Drink Dates: 2015-2028Author: Antonio Galloni
Wine Advocate | Rating: 90The generic cuvees from Eastside and Westside Roads are always the best buys in this portfolio. The 2013 Pinot Noir Westside Road Neighbors has soft raspberry and black cherry fruit, medium body, a lush, sexy texture, and a long, heady finish. This delicious Pinot seems to be mature, but capable of lasting 7-8 years.Drink Dates: 2016-2024Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 89Well-centered on a deep, rich core of blackberry and wild berry, with firm earth and spice-laced tannins, ending with anise, baked berry and spice notes. Drink now. 971 cases made.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.
