Winemaker Notes

Hirsch began planting his vineyard in 1980. Originally he planted some Riesling. Then a mentor told him, “If you plant Pinot Noir here, you’ll be famous,” and helped him get cuttings of the best clones from Oregon. Most of his soils are uplifted seabed, gravelly loam with varying degrees of clay. The vineyard is 3 miles from the Pacific Ocean with an elevation of 1,400 feet. The climate is one of extremes in rainfall, wind and temperature, varying greatly from week-to-week and season-to-season.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Distinctive and assertive. Rich, intense and concentrated, with layers of black cherry, wild berry, plum and mineral that are backed by mouthcoating tannins.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1999 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard (1,100 cases) exhibits that vineyard's tell-tale meaty, black cherry, and mineral-like characteristics as well as a sinewy, muscular, concentrated, firm palate, high acidity, and plenty of broodingly backward black fruits. It will need time in the bottle.

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.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.
