Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Allen Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The wild raspberry, citrus blossom, rose petal, cardamom and mocha nose exudes classic Sonoma Coast pinot noir. Your mouth will explode with flavors of wild berries, cranberries, toasted nut bread, white pepper, toffee and toasted marshmallow. Rich tannins and acidity balance out the ripe wild berry flavors, pomegranate, fresh herbs and spices. The long sensual finish completes this wonderful experience.

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

The medium-bodied 2005 Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard exhibits plenty of tart strawberry and cranberry fruit intermixed with notions of rose petals, wet stones, and high acidity. It should drink well for 5-10 years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2005 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard 750ml
