Winemaker's Notes:

This wine just keeps getting better with each vintage as we are now really starting to understand the vineyards where we source its fruit. The wine is 100% stainless steel fermented with no malo-lactic fermentations. This technique has allowed us to capture the true aromas and flavors from each of these vineyard sites. The cool summer of 2010 allowed for extremely slow flavor development that resulted in aromas of Sun Crest peaches, Red Gravenstein apples, Fantasia nectarines and Muscat Canelli grapes. The flavors are quite similar, but with a refreshing blast of acidity that reminds you of tropical fruits. I really enjoy turning my friends and family onto this wine and most everyone really loves it, especially when enjoyed with food.

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.
