2013 Williams Selyem "Burt Williams' Morning Dew Ranch" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1218951 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark It's easy to appreciate this wine's generous, almost jammy aromas. They're followed by spicy, concentrated black-cherry flavors backed by firm acidity and lots of fine-grained tannins. This wine, from a vineyard owned by Williams-Selyem co-founder Burt Williams, tastes terrific now, but will show more complexity with time. *Cellar Selection* (JG) Inner quote mark (5/2016)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A high-toned nose of red cherry and pomegranate liqueur exhibits wisps of lilac, green tea and anise. There is a lovely sense of vibrancy to the beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors that possess slightly better depth on the dusty, sappy and mildly austere finale that delivers sneaky good length. This is a wine of subtlety and grace rather than power and muscle though make no mistake as the underlying foundation is here such that this should age exceptionally well. Again, lovely. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2016)

92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Among the prettier and most polished of the very fine Williams Selyem lot and already showing a good deal of layered complexity, this beautifully crafted composition is charged with emphatic, very deep, cherryish fruit with highlights of flowers, crème brûlée and sweet spice and, while far from being a lightweight, is especially graceful and lithe in feel. It is hard to resist now, but a few years of patience will be rewarded with a singularly distinctive wine that is as elegant as it is so very rich. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (2/2016)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Pinot Noir Burt Williams’ Morning Dew Ranch offers an attractive interplay of dense dark fruit and more savory, earthy notes that lurk beneath. Tobacco, menthol, incense and smoke contribute to the wine's dark, virile personality. The 2013 could use another year or more in bottle, but I expect it will always remain rather brooding in personality. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From the founder, the 2013 Pinot Noir Burt William's Morning Dew Ranch from Anderson Valley has a deep ruby/plum color, sweet black cherry fruit, some forest floor and earth. There is a hint of blue fruit, but not nearly as dominant as in the Ferrington Vineyard. This medium-bodied, crisp, tart wine should drink nicely for 10-15 years. (RP) 90+ Inner quote mark (3/2016)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Superb stemmy perfume and pure fruit. Edgy with brushing tannin and zippy acid. Not so confident as many, and much the better for it! 17.5/20 points (RH) Inner quote mark (2/2016)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark An edgy youngster, with chunky raspberry, wild berry, savory herb, dusty earth and anise flavors, this will benefit from short-term cellaring. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2016)
