Winemaker Notes

This unique site seems to be expressing more fruit-driven characteristics as these vines mature. The aromas of Rainier cherries, fennel, cardamom, earth and minerals dominate the bouquet entirely in this vintage. The concentrated flavors of wild berries, cola, minerals and fresh cardamom are complemented by the lingering tannin and long finish. As this vineyard continues to mature it is showing the true idiom of this unique site.

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

A spectacular, beautiful wine, the best Williams Selyem Weir ever. This wine can be rustic, and the '09 shows the vineyard's edgy tannin structure and eathiness. But it's so rich in fruit, mocha and spices, so elegant, with such a delicacy despite the power, you have to admire it. Not ready though. Give it at least six years.

Williams Selyem
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.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
