2010 Williams Selyem - Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir - USA - California - Sonoma - Sonoma Coast - Red

USA - California - Sonoma - Sonoma Coast

Red Pinot Noir
Producer Notes

The emergence of Williams Selyem as one of California's Pinot Noir leaders is an improbable success story. Founders Burt Williams and Ed Selyem started making wine under the Hacienda del Rio Winery label in a garage in Fulton. Their first wine was a 1981 Zinfandel, but very soon after they began their quest for great Pinot Noir. By the late 1980s, Williams had retired as a typesetter and Selyem... More »

Bright red. Very pure, lively aromas of black raspberry, violet, licorice and bitter chocolate. Dense, spicy and sweet but almost weightless, offering nuanced flavors of dark berries and flowers complicated by bitter chocolate and woodsmoke. The persistent, floral-tinged finish features silky, fine-grained tannins and very good energy.

Drink Dates 2013-2016

Williams Selyem's 2010 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is gorgeous. Juicy, open and expressive, the 2010 is bursting with sweet, radiant red fruit. Floral and spice nuances develop later, but the 2010 remains a forward, fruit-driven wine best enjoyed over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016.

Baking spice, red fruit aromas. Classic Williams-Selyem color (i.e. almost glowing red). Bright red pinot fruit flavors, plenty of structure.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
