2006 Williams Selyem "Allen Vineyard" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1129883 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Similar to the ’05, the winery’s ’06 Allen Chard is quite dry and savory, and shows the minerality this vineyard often displays. Yet it’s also creamy and fruity, offering up a wealth of sweet Meyer lemondrop, white peach and lime flavors. Feels a bit nervous and immature now, and could improve considerably in the cellar over the next several years. Inner quote mark (2/2009)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Fresh apple flavors sparked by mineral leesiness come up from behind the oak spice of this wine. Cinnamon warmth drives the aromas, but the wine finishes clean and fresh. For boudin blanc. Inner quote mark (4/2009)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fresh floral, citrus, green apple and tangy lemon-lime notes taste as good as they smell. Full-bodied, elegant and balanced, with lively acidity and a long, clean finish, showing a hint of mineral and oak on the finish. Drink now through 2013. 226 cases made. Inner quote mark (12/2009)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2006 Chardonnay Allen Vineyard is another wine that has terrific aromas but then seems to fall off in the mouth. The superb attack is reason to get excited, as the wine displays plenty of lemon blossom and honeyed citrus, with hints of wax and butter. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2008)

K&L Notes

Williams-Selyem hardly needs an introduction. This ever popular winery from the Russian River has an incredible selection of single vineyard Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel. The Allen Vineyard is one of these popular Chards - sourced from a vineyard on the Russian River, the warm days and cool evenings are perfect conditions for Chardonnay. Allen Vineyard is right next to Rochioli Vineyard, and the 2006 was made under the direction of Bob Cabral.
