Winemaker's Notes:

Bright maraschino cherries, strawberries, violets and root beer aromas. Intense cherry/wild raspberry flavors end up round and fat in the mouth. Wild berry flavors are complemented by the rose water and mocha explosion in your mouth. The fruity finish is rounded out with a toasty vanilla crème brûlée-like texture that finishes long. A classic Allen that should age quite nicely.

About Williams Selyem Winery :

Williams Selyem Winery began as a simple dream of two friends, Ed Selyem and Burt Williams, who pursued weekend winemaking as a hobby in 1979 in a garage in Forestville, California, and made their first commercial vintage in 1981. In less than two decades, Burt and Ed created a cult-status winery of international acclaim. Together they set a new standard for Pinot Noir winemaking in the United States, aligning Sonoma County's Russian River Valley in the firmament of the best winegrowing regions of the world. Today John and Kathe Dyson, who purchased the winery from Burt and Ed in 1998, carry on the passion for Pinot Noir winemaking without compromise. As for the wines... they just keep getting better and better.
