Winemaker Notes

This wine is vibrant red in color. Notes of black cherry and plum mix with aromas of underbrush and hoisin sauce. Strawberry and rhubarb pie elements round out the complex and alluring nose. The entry is round and builds with wonderfully refined tannins. Nutmeg and wood spices are interwoven into this perfectly balanced and textured wine. This will be the last offering of Williams Selyem Hirsch Vineyard.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard is medium ruby-purple colored and scented of crushed black cherries, pomegranate and anise with hints of oolong tea, dried thyme and forest floor. Medium-bodied with wonderful vivacity, depth and harmony in the mouth, it has a solid frame of grainy tannins and a long, refreshing finish. 284 cases produced.

Williams Selyem Winery , Sonoma Coast, 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.

California

Red Wine

View all wine

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, cult status.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, and remain active new frontiers for Rhône and Spanish varieties.

Mendocino in California’s cool North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
