Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Beautifully plump aromas of black plum, violet, rose and baked fennel show on the nose of this bottling. Soft and full on the palate, it offers plenty of fruit surrounding the earthy core, with flavors of wild cherry, cherry pit, Alpine strawberry, loam and herb.
Editors' Choice
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Pinot Noir Vista Verde comes from an estate vineyard near Calera, with vines planted at high elevations on limestone soils. Pale to medium ruby-purple, it gives dried cranberries, blueberries and boysenberries on the nose, with hints of cinnamon stick, saline, dried leaves, warm earth, tree bark, black tea leaves and dried flowers. Light to medium-bodied, it has a great core of ripe fruits with swirls of earthiness, very fine-grained tannins and juicy acidity, finishing long and berry-laced.

Williams Selyem Winery , California
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.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
