2011 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1146276 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Pungent aromas of black raspberry, cherry and fresh rose, with a smoky quality building in the glass. Pliant, sweet and complex, offering potent flavors of bitter cherry, blackberry, floral pastilles and cola. Rich and concentrated but lively, closing with strong punch and fine-grained firming tannins. Quite rich for a 2011, but also shows the vivacity that marks the vintage's best wines. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Williams Selyem defines Russian River Pinot with this cherry–bright, red-fruited wine. It carries freshness through fruit as well as herb-scented tannins, those elements combining in a firmly textured wine, polished and rich without any excess weight. For roast quail. Inner quote mark (10/2013)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark There’s a fresh, lilting quality to this Pinot, a silky airiness that feels weightless on the palate. Doubtless that’s due to the moderate alcohol. But there’s nothing light about the flavors, which are complex in black raspberry pie, softened Dr. Pepper cola, butterscotch, toast and spices. A beautiful Russian River Pinot made for drinking now with upscale fare. Inner quote mark (7/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Lightly sweet, almost exotic, spice. Refined tannins and beautiful structure. Tight and so fresh and lively and alive. Long, bright. Delicious. Great depth. (JH) 18.5/20 points. Inner quote mark (11/2013)
