Winemaker Notes

Strawberry and cherry notes mix with subtle notes of allspice and clove. The palate offers softer tannins with hints of black tea and seamless acidity. Sourced from our outstanding vineyards in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast AVAs, the Sonoma County always represents an outstanding value. Something to enjoy on the early side as you wait for the vineyard designates to mature.

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast

This is an outstanding showcase for the vintage, showing depth and concentration mixed with elegance. Dried herb, black tea, turned earth and crushed rock accent a medium-bodied core of dark cherry, blueberry and currant, with rounded tannins.

JD 94
Jeb Dunnuck

Lots of ripe cherries and mulberries as well as an almost blue fruit quality all emerge from the 2019 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast. Medium-bodied and super elegant, this seamless Pinot Noir shines on all accounts. It has a kiss of background oak to integrate, yet the balance is spot on, its tannins are ripe and polished, and it's just a gorgeous appellation Pinot Noir that readers should snatch up.

COMMENTARY: The 2019 William Selyem Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a beautiful and complete wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with its aromas of ripe, red, and black fruit, as well as an accent of oak. Pair it with a grilled, well-marbled ribeye. (Tasted: January 15, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium ruby, the 2019 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast offers spicy black fruits on the nose with savory and earthy undertones. The palate is bright and spicy with a finely grained texture and long, uplifted finish.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Shows an elegant spiciness and structured dried red cherry and berry flavors that are backed by rich acidity. Burnished finish has notes of underbrush that linger with svelte savoriness. Drink now through 2025.

Connoisseurs' Guide

Very much following the lead of Williams Selyem’s 2018 Sonoma Coast bottling, this is again a very fruit forward offering that sports the lovely, very supple, near velvety palatal feel of a well-crafted Pinot Noir. If picking one of the winery’s current lot for drinking in the relative near term, this is the one that gets our vote, albeit not about to fade away any time soon. It is, in short, very delectable stuff.

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.

The Sonoma Coast AVA is large in area but, not counting overlapping regions like Russian River Valley, only has a few thousand acres of grapevines—and it’s no wonder. Much of the region is rugged and not easily accessible. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean’s fog and cool breezes limits the varieties that can be cultivated, but it proves to be an ideal environment for high quality Pinot Noir.

Since fog is a frequent fact of life here, as are heavy marine layers that sometimes bring rain, the best vineyards are wisely planted above the fog line, on picturesque ridges that capture enough sun to provide even ripening. That, with the overnight drop in temperature that reliably preserves acidity, results in fine expressions of Pinot Noir that often receive tremendous critic and consumer praise alike, and are often in high demand.
