Winemaker Notes

The inaugural offering of the Williams Selyem Lewis MacGregor Estate Pinot Noir is a knockout! The brilliant, red color is mesmerizing. Black cherry and black raspberry notes are complemented by essences of dried thyme, musky herbs with a touch of citrus rind, cedar and clove. In the mouth, black cherry skin and cherry pit flavors are complemented by dense, but elegant tannins. Crushed quartz and bittersweet chocolate round out a powerful yet refined first offering.

Connoisseurs' Guide
This, the first Williams Selyem offering from the Lewis MacGregor Vineyard, is an outstanding addition to the winery's lengthy list of single-site Pinots. While it exhibits the usual attention to careful structure and balance, it is as deep and explicitly fruity as any in its 2014 family and already teases with flashes of complexity to come. Its seamless transition from suppleness to finishing firmness is the mark of a Pinot destined to gain in beauty for years, and, even if a most tasty morsel at the moment, this one promises great things with age and comes with our strongest urgings for patience.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Lewis MacGregor Estate Vineyard is a little closed to begin, offering subtle tar and roses suggestions over notes of black cherries, mulberries, lavender and forest floor. The medium-bodied palate gives beautiful freshness, with a satiny texture and wonderful energy. Rating: 92(+) Points.

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.

While the Russian River Valley is a large appellation with multiple climate zones and soil types, it is best known for cool-climate varieties, with Pinot Noir as the most celebrated. The grapes benefit from a reliable late afternoon flow of Pacific Ocean fog through the Petaluma Gap and along the Russian River Valley that ensures slow and steady ripening and the preservation of grape acidity. Today many of California’s most highly regarded Pinot Noir vineyards are in the Russian River Valley, along with its sub-appellation, Green Valley.

Historically Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs had bright red fruit and delicate earthy, mineral notes. But changes in viticultural and winemaking practices have led to stylistic changes in some of the region’s wines. Adjustments to canopy management, among other techniques, have resulted in riper fruit and bolder wines as well. These show flavors of black cherry, blackberry, cola, spice and darker, loamy earth tones, accenting traditional Pinot Noir notes of strawberry, raspberry and light cherry.
