    Aromas of dark cherry, spice, sandalwood, tea, lavender and anise introduce delicious and attractively textured medium weight flavors that possess lovely mid-palate concentration as well as excellent complexity on the balanced and once again sneaky long finish. Like all of the wines in the range this should clearly be capable of rewarding several years of cellaring, indeed it will need at least 4 to 6, and 8 to 10 would be ideal.

    The 2014 Pinot Noir Sonoma County sports a pale to medium ruby color and an earthy / herbal nose with pomegranate, violets and raspberry leaves at the core. Medium-bodied, elegantly fruited, very fine and fresh, it finishes with persistent sauteed herbs and savory suggestions.

  • Vinous | Rating: 90

    The 2014 Sonoma County Pinot Noir is another juicy, open-knit wine with forward fruit and tons of near term appeal. Crushed flowers, tobacco, spices, mint and leather wrap around a core of succulent fruit in this savory, expressive Sonoma County Pinot.

  • 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.
