Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

JD 94
Jeb Dunnuck

From the cooler Sonoma Coast, the 2016 Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard just leaps out of the glass with its spice, pine forest, wild strawberry, blueberry, and incense aromas and flavors. Incredibly complex, medium to full-bodied, with nicely integrated acidity, it has plenty of fruit and richness, as well as length on the finish. It will be better in a year or two and thrill for over a decade.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard has a Syrah-like nose of cracked black pepper, smoked meats, dried tobacco leaf, fried savory herbs, wild blackberries, crushed stone and old leather with blue and red fruit hints. Medium-bodied, it's savory in the mouth, intense but silky smooth, with laser-like juicy acidity, finishing very long, layered and packed to the gills with flavor. This has a savory profile but with amazing freshness, lift and energy. 180 cases produced.

Wine Enthusiast
A spicy white-pepper note opens this wine. Root beer, black cherry and firm tannins combine for a beefy midpalate of freshness and power.

Williams Selyem Winery  Proprietors John and Kathe Dyson 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.

Sonoma County, California

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
