2018 Williams Selyem Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1466556 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A beautiful expression of the coolclimate appellation, this wine shows enduring flavors of blackberry and cherry, with deft touches of dried herb and forest. It holds its oak and weight with ease, offering balance within a complex structure and hint of grip. (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast comes from a mix of vineyards and was 75% destemmed and spent year in 40% new French oak. It has a beautiful bouquet of ripe red (and some black) raspberries as well as complex bay leaf, bouquet garni, allspice, and hints of violets. This carries to a medium-bodied 2018 in the supple, elegant style of the vintage, with nicely integrated acidity, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's just a complex, complete, and satisfying Pinot Noir from this estate that will evolve for a solid 8-10 years. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is aromatically even more floral in character with its cool and restrained nose of spiced herbal tea and aromas that derive mostly from the red side of the fruit spectrum. The middle weight flavors are not quite as dense though they are finer, and I particularly like the texture, all wrapped in a dusty, compact and equally youthfully austere and mildly warm finale. This serious effort is also built to age and will require at least some patience. Inner quote mark (10/2020)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers a lilting fruity aroma, with orange pekoe tea notes to the dark plum and cooking spice flavors. Hints of cocoa powder show on finish, accented by details of freshly crushed white pepper. (KM) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Generous, well-defined fruit is the watchword of this immediately likeable effort, and the wine displays the suppleness and palatal polish that are the hallmark of its maker. It may not be the most complex of the Williams Selyem entourage, but it ranks high for its fruity depth and sheer drinkability, and, if hardly in danger of drying or fading any time soon, it is thoroughly enjoyable right now and is our pick of the bunch for pouring while waiting on the more ageworthy of its 2018 cellar mates to fully come into their own. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast has gentle scents of rhubarb and strawberry with notes of charcuterie and amaro. It's light-bodied with restrained but bright, spicy fruits, silky and fresh with an uplifted finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (7/2020)
