About Williams-Selyem Winery
Production of California "cult" Pinot Noirs started right here, at this Russian River winery. These are lush, extroverted Pinot Noirs, with sappy cherry, raspberry and spicy oak flavors, showcasing some of the best sites in the Russian River Valley and cooler Sonoma Coast appellations.
91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2001
Slightly hazy medium yellow. Complex aromas of lemon candy, sweet corn, peppermint and minerals. Supple and dense in the mouth, with firm acids giving the rather cool flavors an incisive quality. Chewy with extract. Gripping finish is long and slightly minty. Very fresh chardonnay with strong underlying material. This wine seemed to handle its new oak component more gracefully than the other three '99 chardonnays from Williams-Selyem.
