Winemaker's Notes:

The aromas of wild blackberries, forest floor, Asian spices and minerals direct the nose in this vintage. Concentrated flavors of cherries, blackberry cobbler, and anise are complimented by chewy grape tannins and soft, toasted oak on the finish. This is a focused wine with much more complexity than in the past. The Weir Vineyard seems to come into its own within 5-6 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.
