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. 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 »

Red berry fruits with a hint of cooked cherry on the nose leads to an extremely well balanced wine with enough tannin to last and sufficient fruit to make it enjoyable. Nice long finish as well.

Nose of cherry and a trace of earth. Palette displays some heat along with flavors of cherry, cola, mint, and vanilla. Exceptionally smooth texture. Long finish. An excellent wine for the price. Coming into maturity now so recommend drinking soon.

An absolute Pinot bomb on the mistaking...with dark cherries and currents, a light red hue in colour... with definite westside road characteristics...just great stuff here...epitome of pinot. Cheers!

Gorgeous ruby color with floral and berry aromas. Light but refined cherry and raspberry flavors on the palate. Drinking quite well right now but will probably get better over the next 2-3 years.

Opened and decanted one hour. On initial pour there is spice scent, minty spice. Initial tart cherry and acid. After an hour the acid disappears in to smooth well put togetherness with nice clean toast on the finish. Mouthwatering finish that belies some tobacco notes and keeps opening up....cherry koolaid? Hint of coconut on the finish as well?! This is an easy drinking little pinot. Third hour, the fruit is gone and has left all earth and spice. Interesting to experience the life of a wine over the course of the evening. Do not decant, let it develop in the glass.

Light garnet in the glass, this wine has a delicious nose of cranberry and raspberry aromas with just a slight hint of green wood. In the mouth, it is smooth and satin textured with a nice core of cranberry, raspberry and cherry cola flavors. Great acidity makes for an overall juicy impression, and a nice finish seals the deal.

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.
