Winemaker's Notes:

White peaches, Gravenstein apples, kiwi, toffee and marshmallow aromas fill your glass. The rich broad textures in your mouth are accentuated by flavors of fresh peach cobbler, Asian pears, mineral and spice. Wonderful acidity, generated from this cooler area next to the Russian River, produces very site specific flavors that finish succulent and complex.

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.
