2018 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1466555 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Lush and earthy in all the right ways, this appellation wine is effusive and floral in a lovely bouquet of wild rose. Bright red fruit persists through the structured and well-integrated body, with fresh acidity and accents of black tea and cardamom lifting it up. (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark A bit light and less dense in its fundamental construction and hewing to the variety’s slightly more restrained side but still nicely keyed on fresh, well-defined, red cherry- and strawberry-like fruit with suggestions of wildflowers quietly appearing here and there, this mid-sized youngster gets good marks for its focus and fruity energy, yet it is still a tad narrow, and, its slight tight-fistedness prescribes another year or two of age. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is plump and juicy, with a lovely sense of immediacy that runs through it. Sweet red/purplish berry fruit, wild flowers, mint and cinnamon are all nicely kicked up in this mid-weight, gracious appellation-level Pinot from Williams Selyem. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

K&L Notes

Williams Selyem Winery began as a simple dream of two friends, Ed Selyem and Burt Williams, who pursued weekend winemaking as a hobby in 1979 in a garage in Forestville, California, and made their first commercial vintage in 1981. In less than two decades, Burt and Ed created a cult-status winery of international acclaim. Together they set a new standard for Pinot Noir winemaking in the United States, aligning Sonoma County's Russian River Valley in the firmament of the best winegrowing regions of the world. Today John and Kathe Dyson, who purchased the winery from Burt and Ed in 1998, carry on the passion for Pinot Noir winemaking without compromise.
