Smooth gradient from the outer rim to a beautiful garnet center. Mostly clear but with a gentle 'Pinot' haze. Raspberries on the nose and just a whiff of woodiness. Rich raspberry flavor up front with a subtle acidity that provides a well balanced finish.

Whiffs of sour fruit follow musty mushroom beginning, as spice, then black cherry and blackberry notes emerge, with hints of mustard, asparagus and lilac blossoms. A bit of rose, grass, and tarragon decorate the complex bouquet as it shifts from sour to sweet over 10 seconds. The palate provides an equally interesting journey. Peppery heat on the attack, with cherries emerging from smoke. A woodsy center sustains during a pleasant linger.

A trim, tight youngster, with a narrow band of black cherry, spice, mineral and cedar. Ends with firm tannins and flavors that build on the finish. Drink now through 2010. 390 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2004 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard 750ml

Good bright red-ruby color. Crushed cherry, spices, underbrush and a wilder suggestion of meat on the highly aromatic nose. Offers similar elements in the mouth, with the red fruits complicated by a slightly decadent underbrush element. Finishes with... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

The smell of wet stones, roasted herbs, tart cherries, pomegranate, cranberries, and strawberries come from the nose of the 2004 Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard. This is among the most acidic of these 2004s and seems attenuated because of that acid.

Trim, compact and delicate, with detailed cherry, mineral, sage, herb and plum flavors shaded by a hint of toasty oak on the finish. Drink now through 2010. 1,175 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2004 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 750ml

Good medium red. Spicy red raspberry, cherry, mocha, pepper and underbrush on the nose. Sweet and gentle, with moderate concentration and a lush texture. The briary dark raspberry and strawberry flavor is nicely framed by ripe acids and complicated b... Stephen Tanzer.

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright Maraschino cherry, strawberry, violet and root beer aromas. Intense cherry and wild raspberry flavors end up round and fat in the mouth. The wild berry flavors are complemented by the rose water and mocha explosion in your mouth and the creamy textured tannins that finish long and juicy across your palate.
