Winemaker Notes

Ripe red fruit and Amarena cherry are highlighted in this classic Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. Dried flowers mix with mocha, nutmeg, and allspice offer depth. Sourced from 6 blocks within the Ferrington Ranch, this dynamic mix of clones harmonizes to create a wine with focus that typifies this unique terroir. Red fruits dominate the palate and are counterbalanced with refreshing acidity and hints of bergamot. The Ferrington Pinot Noir finishes with a subtle earthy loaminess and a hint of Earl Grey tea.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Williams Selyem Ferrington Vineyard Pinot Noir is one of the vintage's top wines. Already showing its early greatness, I expect this wine to gain weight dimensions, and complexity over the next decade. TASTING NOTES: This wine is incredibly integrated. Its aromas and flavors of dazzling ripe berries and savory spices lingering long and pleasingly on the palate. Pair it with a garlic-rosemary infused, slow-roasted leg of lamb. (Tasted: July 30, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Vinous
The 2017 Pinot Noir Ferrington Vineyard is another absolutely gorgeous wine in this range. Pliant, racy and succulent, the 2017 has so much to offer. Sweet red and purplish berries, spice and lavender open up first, with a kick of bright blood orange-infused acids that perk up the flavors. Soft curves and ripe, silky tannins make the 2017 impossible to resist. This is such a gorgeous wine.

Connoisseurs' Guide

A little closed in at first but slowly opening to reveal optimally ripened, black cherry fruit along with a bit of distinctive, slightly savory, woody spice not found in its Russian River siblings, this ample young Pinot Noir builds and builds on the palate with youthful energy to spare. Even though it teases with the first inklings of velvety texture that will become ever more evident with time, it has the structural backbone to age famously. However good it may be now, and it is very good, it is a wine that we would relegate to the cellar for no fewer than another three or four years.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Mouthfilling flavors of dark cherry, plum tart and blackberry are supported by medium-grained tannins and bright acidity. The finely textured finish offers sandalwood notes and hints of cream, as well as minerally accents. Drink now through 2024.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Ferrington Vineyard is youthfully shy on the nose, opening to black cherry, woodsmoke, loamy earth, wet bark, stewed black tea leaves and dried herbs. The palate is light to medium-bodied with restrained fruit and lots of earthy character, firmly framed by chalky tannins and great opposing freshness, finishing long with loads of spicy nuance. 844 cases produced.

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.

Anderson Valley Wine

Mendocino, California

Surrounded by redwood forests and often blanketed in chilly, ocean fog, the Anderson Valley is one of California’s most picturesque appellations. During the growing season, moist, cool, late afternoon air flows in from the Pacific Ocean along the Navarro River and over the valley's golden, oak-studded hills. High and low temperatures can vary as much as 40 or 50 degrees within a single day, allowing for slow and gentle ripening of grapes, which will in turn create elegantly balanced wines.

The Anderson Valley is best known for Pinot Noir made in a range of styles from delicate and floral to powerful and concentrated. Chardonnay also shines here, and both varieties are often utilized for the production of some of California’s best traditional method sparkling wines. The region also draws inspiration from Alsace and produces excellent Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris.

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.”
