Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Allen Vineyard 2006
Medium in body and in color, this wine exhibits a nose of high toned aromas of wild blackberries, pomegranates, sandalwood, Asian spice and roasted marshmallows. The mouth is filled with flavors of tart raspberries, truffles, dried cranberries, racy acids, cardamom and mocha. The bright Coastal acidity and ripe soft tannins accentuate the wild berry flavors which linger into the long finish. Will need some aging time.
glad I opened and well worth drinking now. pure red fruit (mostly raspberry/strawberry for me, but I can see how people get cherry) in a light bodied package with some definite spice and a little cola character. nice.
very nice...medium bodied. aromas and notes of cherries, red berries, oak, vanilla. well balanced with bright acidity and lingering berry finish
Three and a half glasses
