USA - California - Sonoma - Russian River Valley

Red Pinot Noir
Producer Notes

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.

Still relatively fresh. Straightforward ripe red raspberry, strawberry and white cherry fruit. Slight hard candy notes although not much complexity. Soft tannins are fully integrated. Decent length to the finish.

Decent pinot noir, a mix between subtle notes with some California infused bold fruit. Not very complex but pleasing. More like an everyday drinking style but too pricey.

Color: Bright and light, a bit short on the finish. Very cloudy wine - dusty ruby. Nose & Palate: Nice strawberry, cinnamon spice, and other mixed berry. A touch of earth. The mouth feel is light and simple, finishes a little short.
