2012 Williams Selyem "Westside Road Neighbors" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1157834 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The wine is always a blend of the winery’s best vineyards in the northern, warm section of the valley, including Allen, Rochioli Riverblock and Williams Selyem’s Estate. The 2012 is dry, tannic, delicately structured and mouthwateringly tart, with cranberry, raspberry, cherry, sandalwood and dried herb flavors. *Editors' Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2014)

92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark This impressive young Pinot manages to be bright, fully ripened and fairly rich all at the same time, and it is as well-structured as it is generously filled. It is driven by deep, keenly defined fruit backed by a judicious measure of sweet oak, and it lasts and lasts at the finish with a fine sense of structure that portends even better to come. Like so many of the better Pinots from 2012, it is so fruity that it is bound to tempt early drinking, but it guaranteed to pay high dividends to those willing to wait for a couple of years. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (6/2014)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark ruby. Pungent smoke- and spice-accented aromas of raspberry, cherry-cola and zesty minerals. Offers vibrant red fruit and candied rose flavors, with a touch of bitter blood orange adding focus and grip. Shows the urgency of a cooler vintage but with the depth of fruit one expects from wines made from this area. Finishes silky and long, with resonating minerality and excellent spicy persistence. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Bob Cabral has been making this benchmark Russian River wine since 2002, in this vintage blending estate fruit with four nearby vineyards west of the river: Bacigalupi, Bucher, Allen and the Rochioli Riverblock. His 2012 shows a lot of warmth and oak at first, but there’s a refreshing tension underneath, a crunchy cherry- skin grip that melds with the spiciness of oak to form an exuberant, satisfying Russian River classic. This would be great with sautéed mushrooms. Inner quote mark (8/2014)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Assertively tannic and gutsy, with vanilla-laced oak, racy blackberry and wild berry flavors, pretty floral scents and a finish vibrant with crushed rock and graphite minerality. (JL) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Some vegetal notes on the nose, with rhubarb and redcurrant fruit. Crunchy tannin and bright acid. Shows nice development, with loads of fruit to age further. (RH) 17/20 points. Inner quote mark (3/2018)
