Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

Wine Details


Pinot Noir



Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) The nose is redolent of blackberries, plums, toffee, and crème brûlée. The rich and full tannins accentuate blackberry and dark plummy fruit flavors, and complement the creamy, silky finish. The concentrated dark fruits and spicy flavors truly express the classic depth, complexity, and finesse that you would expect from our Russian River Valley pinot noir.

    (2006 Vintage) Sporting the red cherry fruit one looks for in Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs, this pleasing expression of grape and place comes with a veneer of enriching oak that lifts its aromas nicely and fills out its tasty, youthfully energetic flavors. Full in body at entry and somewhat supple across the palate, this wine delivers its fully fruited flavors with an added fillip of a stony, minerally underpinning. Look for it to age for several years and to be a fine mate to game birds and veal chops.
