2009 Williams Selyem "Flax Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1129703 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A sip is all it takes to fall in love with this potent Pinot Noir. Big tannins and crisp acidity make it hard to appreciate now, but there’s a gigantic core of cherries and raspberries, with a firm minerality from the soil. Will develop bottle complexity over the years. Don’t even think of popping the cork before 2015. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (2/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Glass-staining ruby. Lively, complex aromas of cherry compote, licorice, black tea and violet. Youthfully taut on entry, then suaver and silkier with air, showing excellent intensity and depth to its bitter cherry, black raspberry and spicecake flavors. Displays impressive volume without excess weight and finishes sappy and long, with well-integrated tannins. This young but very refined Pinot will reward patience. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Glimmers of wildflowers and cream are joined to deep, well-defined, ripe-cherry fruit in the graceful yet ample aromas here, and, on the palate, the wine comes across as being a bit richer and fuller than most of its cellarmates. It is very well-balanced and quite continuous in flavor, yet for all of its obvious energy, it is slightly less prone to limiting acids just now and fairly showy despite its youth. That said, it is in no risk of fading away soon, and it offers both near-term appeal and the certainty of better with age. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (2/2012)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Dried strawberries with a slightly nutty undertone on the nose. Medium to full body, with firm tannins and fresh acidity. Clean and delicious. Fruitier style but balanced. Inner quote mark (6/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This charming effort is plump and generous, with polished, lingering supple black cherry and blueberry fruit. Drink now through 2020. (JL) Inner quote mark (4/2012)
