Winemaker Notes

Sourced from older vines planted to the Wente selection, the nose consists of spiced pear, crushed minerals, and fresh herbs, while subtle hints of green tea and ginger further add intrigue to the aromatics in this Lewis MacGregor Estate Vineyard offering. Acid-driven on the palate, the extract and weight of the wine harmoniously balances the acid. An overlay of yellow fruits, along with hints of flowers and subtle minerality, melt into the backdrop of the layered palate profile.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling

A lovely, inviting nose of baked green apples, ginger, straw and dried lilies. Medium-bodied and silky. Balanced acidity moves the palate forward, together with the yellow fruit and fresh flowers. Nuanced and elegant with subtle minerality. Rather refined and totally delicious. Drink or hold.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

Spicy, floral and rich, this wine offers layers of pineapple, stone fruit and anise. While it shows substantial weight and a full-bodied structure, it remains bright in the glass, with a lingering finish of caramel apple and green tea. 

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Chardonnay Lewis MacGregor Estate Vineyard has layered aromas of white peaches, quince, yogurt and almonds, with a streak of flinty nuance. The medium-bodied palate is satiny and expansive, with focused freshness and savory layers defining the very long, lifted finish. Its fine texture and dynamic flavors promise more nuance to come as it ages in bottle.


JD 92
Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 Chardonnay Lewis McGregor Estate Vineyard is fresh with lemon balm, green apple, and vanilla bean. The palate delivers great concentration, although it has lifted, pithy citrus as well as green apple, beeswax, and fresh herbs. The palate is pithy, with a stony finish.

Williams Selyem Winery  Proprietors John and Kathe Dyson 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.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
