Winemaker's Notes:

With yields lowered by Spring frost, this wine shows concentrated flavors of wild blackberry, boysenberry, anise and cassis. Aromas of sweet blackberry preserves, pipe tobacco and white pepper spice fill your glass. The matured, rich tannins coat your mouth and finish with mouth watering acidity. The mouthfeel is quite dense and extremely rich, and it should age nicely over the next couple of years.

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.
