Winemaker Notes

Beautifully dense in color. The aromatic profile is power packed with notes of a fruit bowl chock-full of dark fruits, such as blueberry and boysenberry. A top note of dried flowers adds a wonderful surprise and seems to counterpoint the denseness of the nose. Saddle leather and cigar box further the complex the brooding nature of this wine. Flavors of Bing cherry immediately transition to blond tobacco and Mocha Java coffee bean notes. The finish is round and supple with a tenacious sappy cling.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Soft and alluring, this wine opens in bursts of rose petal and black tea, with plenty of baking spices accenting its core of cherry, blueberry and rhubarb. As the wine mellows on the finish, it show a velvety texture of round, supple tannins.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Foss Vineyard delivers delicious Black Forest cake and red and black currant aromas with touches of lavender, dusty soil and dried herbs plus a waft of fungi. Medium-bodied, fresh and elegant in the mouth, it has a firm, fine-grained structure and long, fragrant finish. 720 cases produced.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
This has the violet scent and lofty black-satin texture of classic Russian River Valley pinot noir. The warm black fruit adds to the wine’s generosity, while there’s enough bright, zesty freshness to give it shape and form. One of Williams Selyem’s Westside Road neighbors, Bill Foss, planted his vineyard in 2007 on clay-loam soils using mostly heritage clones of pinot noir (Pommard, Swan and Mt. Eden).

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.
