2003 Williams Selyem "Flax Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1033190 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a big, full-bodied wine, huge in fruit, yet it has the silky elegance that Pinot needs. It’s bone dry, with adequate acidity and a young, unresolved mouthfeel. There’s a tremendous core of baked cherry pie fruit, drizzled with cinnamon and vanilla. Cellar this puppy for a couple years, or decant for up to 24 hours now. Inner quote mark (3/2006)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Looking more like a Syrah than Pinot Noir, the 2003 Flax Vineyard boasts a gorgeous bouquet of black raspberries, blackberries, and sweet cassis. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, with high extract, tangy acidity, firm tannin, and an inky style, it requires 1-2 years of bottle age, and should keep for a decade. 91+ (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2005)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full ruby. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, violet, espresso and mocha. Dense, concentrated and powerful, with juicy acidity contributing to the impression of youthfulness. Not particularly sweet despite its flavor of dark chocolate. Finishes long, young and backward, with firm, ripe tannins. This, too, needs at least five years of additional bottle aging. 90+ (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2005)
