Winemaker's Notes:

The fresh bouquet of Rainier cherries, toasted vanilla beans, wild berry fruits with smoky bacon, herbs and rose petal open up immediately in your glass. This medium-bodied wine shows true pinot flavors of cherries, raspberry, root beer, rose petal and toasted vanilla beans. A blend of vineyards primarily from the Russian River Valley, the wine finishes clean and long with a sweet note of cherry at the end. This is one to consume while patiently waiting for the vineyard designates to mature.

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.
