Winemaker Notes

A much more subtle wine than in the past clearly expresses this site in 2009. A very cool year that helped show off the mineral and classic citrus flavors typically associated with very cool growing sites. The aromas of mineral, Meyer lemon and lush toasty oak give way to flavors of Asian pears, honey and nectarines across the palate. Rich and broad across the palate, this wine still finishes with that nice brilliant acidity.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Masses of lemondrop candy, pineapple tart and mashed ripe pears in this marvelous wine, but that's not all. Buttered toast, creme brulee, bananas sauteed in butter and brown sugar are some of the additional complexities. That makes the wine sound sweet, but it finishes dry. High in alcohol, but balanced, this flamboyant Chardonnay is best enjoyed now.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A flinty, citrus-laced effort, with a tangy pink grapefruit edge to the pippin apple flavors. Fans of pure, ripe Chardonnay, absent evident oak, will find this especially appealing, as it ends with a snappy apple pie freshness. Drink now through 2017. 296 cases made.

Williams Selyem Winery , Russian River, Sonoma County, California
Image of winery
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.
