Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Central Coast 2005
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.
Cherry - Blackberry taste, easy and good to drink. Fits well with steak.
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.
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!
