Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Central Coast 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

The Pinot Noir grape has been around for a long time and traces its roots back to the Burgundy region of France. Fast-forwarding a few centuries brings us to California, the home of Williams Selyem Winery and some of the greatest Pinot Noir vineyards in the world. Williams Selyem has concentrated on finding vineyards that produce grapes with just the right flavor profiles. We bring in grapes from prime vineyards in Mendocino County, the Central Coast, the Sonoma Coast, and our home appellation of the Russian River Valley. Each wine has those distinctive qualities — depth of flavor and texture — that can only be found in Williams Selyem wines.

Williams-Selyem:

Today, the winemaking torch has been passed into the skillful hands of a carefully selected team headed by Executive Winemaker, Bob Cabral. They share a passion that requires a strong but intuitive approach, given the capricious nature of the varietal. These artisans respect and employ the original handcrafted approach to winemaking that has made Williams Selyem wines so sought after today. The winery carefully executes the Williams Selyem philosophy of "respecting the juice." From fermentation to bottling, including the no pumping and filter-free methods, the winemakers use these processes to ensure that the quality of the wine is not compromised. Fortunately, they seem to have none of the typical pressures that many wineries do today and are therefore able to focus strictly on quality. This almost ceremonial approach to creating these wines can be tasted in every bottle. Bob says there's no other place he'd rather be making wine than in the Russian River Valley. Much like the philosophy of Burt and Ed, Bob has forged and fostered successful relationships with many of the growers who have stayed with the winery from its inception. By following proven traditions of respecting the individuality of the growers and vineyards from which they source their fruit, Williams Selyem wines continue to deliver their distinctive taste. On the standing commitment to extraordinary quality at the winery, Bob says, "We respect the grower, the vineyard, we respect the fruit coming in and we take care of the process tenaciously with minimal interference. We exercise patience at every stage and I have to say, we are richly rewarded for that. We like to share those rewards with the people who love our wines." As for the wines…they just keep getting better and better. Read less

Well-balanced, with supple, well-focused plum and black cherry fruit shaded by light toasty oak. Flavors get more intriguing on the finish, offering depth and complexity.

The dark ruby/purple-colored, sweet, dense, beautifully fruited 2000 Pinot Noir Russian River (1,400 cases) is more charming and consumer-friendly than most of this estate's Pinots. Although not long-lived, for drinking over the next 4-5 years, it is... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
