Red Pinot Noir
Producer Notes

The emergence of Williams Selyem as one of California's Pinot Noir leaders is an improbable success story.

Enthralling nose of wild black raspberry, strawberry, tar and campfire smoke with a touch of nettle and mocha. The palate beautifully balances plushness and precision with its layers of red and black fruits, dandelion and burdock, and a touch of mint. The finish has excellent persistence with just a little tannin remaining and a pleasing edge of citrus. I think another two years will open the finish a little more or decant it several hours before drinking and it is amazing now.

Best pinot I've had in months, maybe years. Blackberries, Asian spice, green tea and toffee on the nose. In the mouth, rich dark red fruits with a nice balance of acidity, black truffle, dried spices and mineral. The ripe, somewhat masculine tasting tannins are balanced by the concentration of fruit and a long juicy finish. A big pinot with immense ageing potential.

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.
