Professional Reviews For This Wine

Burghound | Rating: 88

(bottled at 14.3%) While similar in character, here the fruit aromas are slightly more deeply pitched than those of the Sonoma coast and lead to noticeably fuller and richer flavors that retain the same detail and precision on the moderately more complex and persistent finish. Delicious but not simple.

($45) Deep red. Captivating, perfumed bouquet of spicy raspberry, blackberry and fresh rose. Sappy and broad, with deep but energetic red fruit flavors, supple texture and no obvious tannins. Gains power on the finish, which delivers a wallop of sweet raspberry and candied blackcurrant.

The 2006 Pinot Noir Russian River, which is primarily from their estate vineyards, is a beauty, showing nice, earthy, berry fruit, with hints of strawberry, underbrush, and loamy soil notes.

Solid Williams Selyem wine. A bit more tart than other RRV pinots by Williams Selyem. Good fruit but not round

Site Blog: The Wine Forum Not bad, not great, nothing that blows your mind. Just consistently nice. Was better about 7 months ago...could be bottle variation. Color: Muddled, cloudy medium red in color. Not a big color/clirity guy, but very noticeable. Nose: Earthy, some burt orange, whiffs of alcohol. Some flowers and cherry. Palate: Some minerality, red berry and cherry, finsih a little short.

About This Producer

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 had left his job as a wine retailer, and they devoted themselves full-time to winemaking. In 1997, John Dyson bought the winery with plans of planting a 20-acre Russian River vineyard and gradually expanded production. Williams continued to make wine into 2000, after which time Bob Cabral, formerly of Alderbrook and Hartford Court, took over as Executive winemaker.

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.
