Winemaker's Notes:

Always one of the most difficult blends to bring together, the result is one of my most complex blends of this vintage. Dark and rich in color, this wine offers a bouquet of Bing cherry, wild blackberry cobbler, anise, rose petal, and toasty oak aromas that immediately fill your glass. The palate is layered with flavors of wild blackberry, cherry cola, cassis, black truffle, spice and toasty oak. From the best growers along Westside Road—Allen, Bacigalupi, Bucher, Flax, Rochioli Riverblock and now our Litton Estate.

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.
