Disappointed with this WmSeleym Pinot. Perhaps we built it up too much, but it was fairly thin, a little cloudy and dark cherries. Tangy and tight. Read more

Reminiscent of blackberries, plums, cloves, black truffle, cola and crème brûlée. The rich and broad tannins accentuate blackberry-plummy fruits and complement the creamy, silky, yet fat finish and concentrated berry /spicy flavors. Loved it!

Medium red. Strong notes of cumin and sassafras accent bright strawberry and raspberry scents. Elegant, silky and easygoing, with light red berry flavors and a fresh mineral note on the finish. This is ready to drink. 89 points Stephen Tanzer. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2005 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 750ml

The 2005 Pinot Noir Weir Vineyard is a distinctive, earthy, rustic-styled effort displaying a deep ruby hue in addition to abundant amounts of sassafras, damp earth, forest floor, sweet cherry, and steely mineral-like characteristics.

Winemaker's Notes:

Selected from nine different clonal blocks in our Vista Verde Vineyard, the ripe fruit offers a wonderful perfumed nose of black cherries, rose petal and nutmeg. The bright cherry/strawberry nose, with a hint of truffle, spice, cardamom, toffee and fennel are classic to this vineyard site. Your mouth will water with flavors of wild cherries, pomegranates, sassafras, fennel and white truffles. I find that the balanced acidity helps to carry the rich and round tannins that follow through long into the finish.
