2013 Williams Selyem "Foss Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1218943 93 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark With a touch of tea-leaf and savory spice lending an individual twist to its otherwise incisively fruity, well-defined varietal nose, the Foss Vineyard effort earns high marks for its focus, its depth and its impeccable balance. It is at once both supple and slightly firm with a strikingly long finish, and its sense of exquisite proportion and polish are the hallmarks of a Pinot bound to flourish with age. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (2/2016)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A delicate expression of power and beauty, this conveys kirsch cherry, wet stone and high-toned minerality. Round and easy to love, it offers a subtle streak of tannin and tight, integrated oak, finishing in dark chocolate and orange. (VB) Inner quote mark (5/2016)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This is the third single-vineyard wine that Williams Selyem has made from the vines Bill and Becky Foss planted along Eastside Road in 2007. In 2013, the vineyard’s clay-loam soil grew a wine bursting with rich, dark cherry flavor that’s silky and clean, not at all heavy. The oak sticks out at first, but give this a few years in the cellar and you’ll have a delicious, classical Russian River pinot noir. Inner quote mark (4/2016)

90 points Burghound

Outer quote mark In the same fashion as the Ferrington there is an interesting trace of tobacco on the primarily dark berry and spice suffused nose. This is lighter on its feet than the Ferrington as it doesn't offer the same mid-palate concentration though it compensates by exhibiting better delineation on the clean, polished and dusty finish that offers good but not exceptional depth and persistence. Inner quote mark (4/2016)

90 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Pinot Noir Foss Vineyard has a very deep ruby color (one of the more saturated of the 2013 Pinot Noirs, which all possess very good color). This wine offers loads of plum, black cherry and earth, medium to full body, beautiful ripeness, and good, crisp acids. Interestingly enough, this is one of the lowest in alcohol, yet it is certainly concentrated. 90+ (RP) Inner quote mark (3/2016)
