Winemaker Notes

The aromas of olallieberry, blueberry, plum, fennel and mushrooms come to life in the glass. Prosperous, plump and expansive tannins complement the focus of spicy flavors across your palate. The focus of matured dark fruits and zesty flavors develop nicely across your palate. This wine will need a bit more cellaring time to show its full potential.

Connoisseurs' Guide
Looking to ripe cherries as its first point of focus with notes of dried violets, creamy oak and suggestions of cocoa-like richness in the background, this wine is a bit tougher on the palate than its aromas would suggest. Still, it is deep and and promising, and we would be happy to have it in the cellar for the next few years.

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.
