2014 Williams Selyem "Allen Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1271593 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Another longtime standout for Williams Selyem, Allen Vineyard fruit imparts textural subtleties and a wealth of minerality and freshness. Citrus-driven in its cranberry and orange flavors, it shows depth and complexity, accented by lively thyme and clove notes. *Editors' Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright medium red. The nose initially displayed an element of reduction but gained dramatically in perfume and freshness with aeration, showcasing fresh scents of red fruits, spices, menthol and sweet oak. Then plush but elegant and precise in the mouth, conveying terrific lift to its flavors of red fruits, flowers and spices. Finishes with seamless, refined tannins and terrific slow-building persistence. Really lovely intensity here, from an average-size crop. The season was "normal from flowering to harvest but very early," according to Mangahas. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An elegant, fresh, pure and airy nose offers up a well-layered array of relatively high-toned red cherry, raspberry, rose petal and soft spice nuances. The sleek, delineated and vibrant medium weight flavors possess a sophisticated mouth feel that continues onto the dusty, intense and well-balanced and sneaky long finish. This needs a few years to develop the complexity, for which the Allen Vineyard is deservedly well-known but everything appears to be in place for a long life. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (7/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard delivers expressive spice notes of cloves, cinnamon and anise over a red currant, red cherry and lavender core. The well-structured, medium-bodied palate packs-in a great intensity of fruit, finishing with lingering mineral notes. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Hailing from a particularly cool vineyard in the western reaches of the Sonoma Coast, this mildly floral look at the grape emphasizes brightness and buoyancy over ripeness and extract. It is balanced to firmness and built along comparatively leaner lines with plenty of youthful acidity lifting its slightly tangy, red cherry and plum finish. It is sleek Pinot that wants drinking with somewhat lighter fare and will round into top form with a couple years of additional age. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (10/2016)
