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

SKU #1173525 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Since this is the winery’s largest production Pinot, but still under 1,000 cases, buyers actually have a chance of finding this full-bodied beauty. Sly on the nose, it is tense in toasty oak and chewy cherry, venturing into black cherry, blackberry and root beer. It’s amply structured and robust, yet with silky tannins. *Editors' Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (3/2015)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A classic Pinot nose is comprised primarily of dark fruit along with spice, cinnamon and sandalwood wisps. In much the same fashion as the Coastlands the mouth feel is sleek, seductive and well-delineated which when coupled with the pronounced vibrancy makes for a highly appealing palate impression. There is fine concentration, indeed the copious dry extract coats the palate and the length is flat out terrific. This is not quite as stylish or complex as the Allen but this is seriously good and note that my score assumes that much more depth is in the offing if you have the patience to wait. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2015)

92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark It may not be the priciest of the winery's new offerings, but this one performs with the best, and, while its very precise, remarkably deep fruit would on its own earn it very high recommendation, its lovely balance and careful polish make a very good thing that much better. It is not as intense as it is amazingly constant and shows a sense of refinement every step of its way. While hardly cheap, it nevertheless offers a good look at the kind of breeding and exemplary depth that are more often than not found only in the winery's far more expensive, typically hard-to-find offerings.

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full ruby. Deeper and darker in character than the Westside Neighbors bottling, displaying scents of dark berries, cherry compote and licorice, with a smoky note building in the glass. Bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors show very good depth and a spicy element, along with a hint of candied flowers. Tightens up on the chewy, youthfully tannic finish, which is lifted by a zesty spine of minerality. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)
