2009 Williams Selyem "Drake Estate Vineyard" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1166586 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Green-hued yellow. Highly complex aromas of pear skin, smoky peat, iodine, flowers and lemon zest. Reminds me a bit of an Islay whisky. Densely packed, spicy and focused, with excellent energy to the candied citrus, mineral and spice flavors. This has a powerful core of minerality and shows superb depth and back end energy. Finishes long and smoky, with strong suggestions of minerals, violet and iodine. Wild stuff. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A big, rich, flashy Chardonnay that's designed to impress, and does. Almost too much of a good thing, with massive lemondrop candy, pineapple, lime and kiwi fruit flavors, as well as firm minerality and lots of toasty oak. Drink now with opulent fare, such as shellfish. Inner quote mark (3/2012)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Displays a mix of citrus, honeysuckle and hint of butterscotch on a medium body. Pure and lively, this is more engaging with every sip. (JL) Inner quote mark (4/2012)
