2015 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1298064 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Roses and strawberries rise first on the nose of this well-made wine—a celebration of the appellation in its full embrace of medium-bodied texture and weight. It offers elements of dried sage, black tea and cardamom around bursts of cranberry, cherry and orange. (VB) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Fairly tight in construction and very obviously showing its youth, this medium-full-bodied offering teases with a burst of early, red cherry and raspberry fruit before firming up and pulling back in mid-palate. It is not in the least thin or lacking, and persistent fruit stays in place well into its lengthy finish, but it is compact and a bit nervy at present and needs three or four years in which to unfold and expand. Patience is highly recommended, early drinking is not. *One Star* Inner quote mark (6/2017)

90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is a textbook example of Russian River Valley Pinot. The blend, which spends 11 months in oak, sings with cherryish fruit and spice notes. It has density and power, but there’s also a juicy elegance to the palate. (EM) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) captures the essence of the appellation in its bold, plum red fruit, cola and hard candy character. Radiant and bold, but without being overdone, the Russian River Pinot also makes a terrific introduction to both the house style and the very specific personality that defines what Russian River Pinot is all about. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Williams Selyem’s multi-vineyard Russian River blend is in fine form in 2015, entering on a dark-roast coffee scent of new oak, then finding its footing in a juicy ripe plum flavor that feels hearty and welcoming, expanding in the end toward a lifted scent of lavender.
