2013 Williams Selyem "Coastlands Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1218949 98 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark There is something ethereal and beyond words about this wine, a full-bodied but never intrusive expression of spicy cinnamon, black pepper and wild pine that makes it a puzzle worth trying to solve. Fruit plays a part, though softly, eking out shadows of raspberry and just-picked strawberry atop smooth, silky tannins and a measured, seductive body. The finish recalls a clove cigarette enjoyed in the rain. *Editors' Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (5/2016)

Outer quote mark The 2013 Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard is one of the most pedigreed wines in this range. Layered, persistent and super-expressive, the 2013 offers superb balance and class in a mid-weight style. This, too, is another wine that begs to be cellared for at least a few years. The Coastlands is all about subtlety. (AG) 94+ Inner quote mark (8/2016)

K&L Notes

Williams Selyem's Coastlands Vineyard Pinot Noir comes from a mountain ridge vineyard situated at over 1,000 feet in elevation. Cool coastal breezes, not fog, moderate the vineyard's daytime temperatures as the grapes ripen. Winemaker’s notes: "The sous bois (or forest-floor, in English) character of the Coastlands site permeates the nose of this wine. The vineyard is situated on the Coast range surrounded by redwood trees, making it hard not to pick up the forest-like elements on the nose and palate. Dark cherry and pipe tobacco add to the allure of the aromatics. In the mouth, cherry and cherry pit mingle with tobacco and tree bark flavors. The plushness of the tannins adds to the overall round mouthfeel and the finish is dotted with a surprising note of lifted cedar."
