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.

($48) Deep ruby. Brooding aromas of cherry and dark berry skin, with a strong wallop of cracked pepper and brown spices adding complexity. Syrah-like in its intensity and spiciness, offering deep blackberry and cassis flavors and a weighty, chewy texture. The broad, gently sweet finish leaves a strong peppery note behind. Put this one away for at least five years, then serve it with grilled lamb.
