K&L Notes

Williams Selyem has reached out far from their Russian River Valley roots for this vintage, but the same time-honored style fills the glass. From the winery: "100% Vista Verde Vineyard, located a couple miles south-east of Hollister, California, near the small town of Tres Pinos in San Benito County. This heavy limestone vineyard is separated into nine blocks that include clones such as Pommard, Calera, Canada, 667, Mt. Eden, and Swan. This wine has a fresh, perfumed nose of spice, floral components and dark cherries. As it opens up in the glass, there is a bright, red fruit nose with a hint of earth, nutmeg, fennel and toffee, which are characteristic of this vineyard site. Luscious flavors of dark cherries, strawberry, sassafras, violets and caramel give way to the poised acidity. Elements of cedar, baking spices and vanilla add to the complexity. The rich, textural mouthfeel helps to carry the fat, plump tannins that follow long through into the finish."
