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. 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... More »

Seems their app blends are a bit hit and miss. This was a miss, given the price. Had that jelly overtone that makes their wines sometimes difficult to enjoy. Not a bad wine, but not very good

Still a bit young. Nose of intense candied cherry with hints of cola and a trace of spice. Flavors of cherry are balanced by nice acid and a silky mouthfeel. A little hot but should age nicely over the next 3-5 years.

Opened and decanted for thirty minutes. Initial nose of cherry and cola with some really interesting sassafras root and mint. On the palate this wine displays flavors of crisp, clean, sharp bright red cherry. There is a really impressive ground coffee flavor throughout. The tannins are really grippy and all through the mouth. Recanted and vacuum sealed. Opened on day four. The coffee is still there but some really nice plum flavors have developed and really meld with the coffee. There is now a smooth mineral spiciness, lots of stone. The wine has really developed into another beast. Really complex with lots of spice and dark earthy dirt and forest floor. A little mushroom, too. Really awesome transition, great wine! Hold 1-2 years (probably longer) and revisit or decant for 1+ hours.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
