Winemaker Notes

This vineyard is always producing showstoppers and the 2018 vintage is no exception. On the nose, berry fruits mix with pomegranate and blueberry notes, and a hint of citrus keeps the aromas lively and vibrant. Deeper more brooding notes of tree bark and a sous bois character add bass notes and layers to the exotic aromas. The flavors mimic the nose with flavors of a berry basket, along with forest floor elements. Vibrant acidity keeps the palate fresh, while the extract and robust tannin saturate the palate. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, high above the community of Occidental, the vines struggle to ripen the small clusters and thus creates a wine of intensity and singularity.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard has a medium ruby-purple color and inviting aromas of crushed peppercorn, laurel, forest floor, raspberries and rhubarb with amaro layers. Light to medium-bodied, the palate slowly spreads its wings to beautifully bitter, earth-laced fruits, with a gentle salty tang, a firm, grainy and very fresh frame and long finish.

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.”
