Winemaker Notes

Alpine strawberry and black cherry aromas are accompanied by an intriguing appearance of pencil shavings. Dried thyme, vanilla, and nutmeg add a high-toned texture to the bouquet. The palate shines with a perfect acid profile and sense of minerality and stoniness that add to the texture of the palate. Allen Vineyard Pinot Noir is the perfect balance of elegance and power.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Wonderful perfumed aromas of ripe Pinot, rose petals, black cherry and plum, this wine makes a statement about how polished and elegant Russian River Pinots can be, with its soothing, caressing texture. The finish brings the core Pinot flavors to the forefront, with a long, luxurious aftertaste.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The terrific deep ruby/purple-tinged 2002 Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard offers a smorgasbord of aromas and flavors, including crushed minerals, black raspberries, forest floor, and strawberry jam.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
The Allen vineyard, adjacent to and farmed by the Rochiolis on the western bank of the Russian River, grew this gentle, fragrant pinot noir. Its velvet texture carries tart raspberry and strawberry flavor, a fruit-driven wine with oak providing an understated chocolate richness to the structure. Serve it now with salmon in a red wine reduction, or let it develop in the cellar.

Williams Selyem Winery , California
Williams Selyem Winery   Winery Image
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.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
