Winemaker Notes

There is always a fineness to Westside Road Neighbors, and the 2016 does not disappoint! The nose starts out with red cherry, wild berries, and plum, and brightens up with notes of juniper berry, citrus, and redwood shavings. A brooding element lurks in the background and evokes thoughts of Asian spices. With time in the glass, the wine opens up with aromas of flowers and lavender. The wine is very focused in the mouth, and has a very protracted mouthfeel. Flavors of raspberry, cherry, and cranberry, with a smoked meat finish are interwoven in the palate architecture. The full-bodied tannins are reminiscent of Oolong tea. Polished and balanced, the wine’s texture is superb and highlights the best of what Pinot Noir can be.

Wine Enthusiast

Perennially delicious, this is a thick, structured wine with underlying elegance and finesse. A baked cherry flavor is enveloped in sweet spice, cola and lavender, uplifted by lively acidity. It is a crowd-pleasing wine that offers plenty of complexity.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Pinot Noir Westside Road Neighbors is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with a nose of crushed black cherries, pomegranate and mulberries with touches of spice box, menthol and forest floor plus a waft of potpourri. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with black and red berries and earthy layers, framed with ripe, grainy tannins and nicely balanced freshness, finishing long and perfumed. 1,183 cases produced.

Wine & Spirits

Williams Selyem’s blend from a lineup of coveted sites, this wine includes grapes from Allen, Bacigalupi, Bucher, Flax, Rochioli Riverblock and the Williams Selyem Estate. It’s tightly built, almost constricted in its youth, with clean, vibrant fruit that keeps giving the longer it opens in the glass. There’s a spicy edge to the tannins, like gingerroot or sarsaparilla, and a tumble of herbs, earth and stems that adds to the sense of freshness. This should reward patient cellaring.

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 standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
