Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Great ripeness comes with great balance in this fruity, expressive and firm-textured wine. It is full in body but not flabby due to sinewy tannins and persistent acidity. Aromas and flavors run from cinnamon to black cherry to rhubarb, as hints of nutmeg and vanilla show a deft touch of oak. Best from 2022.

Wine & Spirits
The Williams Selyem team farms 6.5 acres at Bill and Suki Weir’s vineyard in the Yorkville Highlands. Most of it is the original planting, dating to 1991, including plant material sourced from Domaine de la Romanée Conti as well as Wadenswil 2A; the newer planting, from 2000, includes Pommard and Rochioli selections. The vines rise from 850 to 1,000 feet in altitude, and some combination of that elevation, plant material and the rocky soils create a fruit character that’s recognizable in most vintages. It’s muscular and compressed into layers of dark, precise tannic detail, the flavor hinting at the skins of black cherries and the juice of small, red forest berries. The flavors are dynamic, spreading to include herbal notes of raspberry leaf and tobacco, always coming back to that earthy, compellingly drinkable fruit. While the complexity is already apparent, the wine will benefit from four or five years in the cellar; at that point, opening it will generate a quieter explosion.

Williams Selyem Winery   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 unique appellation placed in between the warm, Sonoma County Alexander Valley and the cooler Mendocino County's Anderson Valley, the Yorkville Highlands’ gravel soils are ideal for Bordeaux varieties and other full-bodied reds.
