2008 Williams Selyem "Allen Vineyard" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1108170 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Amazingly rich, one of the most opulent Chardonnays you can drink now. Just wows the mouth with pineapple, pear, exotic tropical fruit, crème brûlée, vanilla custard, buttered toast and cinnamon spice flavors that go on and on through the finish. Also shows fine, tart acidity, which provides needed balance. Yes, it’s superripe, but this is what California Chardonnay does at its best. Inner quote mark (8/2010)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Chardonnay Allen Vineyard has a beautiful nose of nectarine, white peach, subtle honey, brioche, and orange rind. Full-bodied, with good acidity, beautifully pure fruit, a sumptuous texture and very good minerality (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2011)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Greenish gold. Fresh pineapple, nectarine and medicinal herbs on the musky nose. Broad and tactile, with very good volume and energizing acidity to the nectarine and mineral flavors. Dense but lively, with strong finishing minerality and lingering smokiness. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2010)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Features spicy, floral aromas, with a hint of lemon and citrus. Full-bodied and elegant, this is a touch raw in texture, but well-focused and complex on the finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2010)
