Wine Advocate | Rating: 93Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard has quite a savory nose of charcuterie, sautéed Indian spices and Marmite toast with a core of raspberry pie and kirsch plus a waft of rose petals. Medium-bodied, finely crafted and very refined in the mouth, it has soft tannins and great freshness, finishing long and minerally. 208 cases produced.Drink Dates: 2018 - 2028Author: Lisa Perrotti-BrownIssue: 236
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.
