Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

(made from fruit grown in the Allen, Bacigalupi, Bucher, Flax, Rochioli Riverblock and Williams-Selyem estate vineyards; 13.9% alcohol): Ruby-red. Explosive, nuanced aromas of candied red fruits, fresh flowers and Asian spices, with deeper cola and licorice nuances gaining power in the glass. Sappy, expansive and appealingly open-knit, offering powerful red and dark berry compote flavors enlivened by allspice and candied rose. Finishes bright and nervy, with a repeating floral quality.

Intense and well-focused on vivid wild berry and raspberry flavors, with a wild, racy edge that's expansive and gains depth and nuance.

Another juicy, generous offering, the 2010 Pinot Noir Westside Road Neighbors is at once plump, yet also mid-weight and gracious. Sweet spice and floral notes wrap around a core of expressive, inviting Russian River fruit as the wine opens up in the glass. Hints of raspberries, strawberries and cinnamon linger on the finish.

Big but beautifully balanced. Dark red fruit. Complex aromas of raspberry, spice, and earth. Vibrant acidity and minerality, with rich saturating black cherry red spiced fruit. Solid midpalate with long finish. Very good place right now.

Beautiful intense fruit, primarily raspberries. This wine seems to explode with flavor completely through the finish. One of the more expressive Pinot's I have had this year.

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
