Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Allen Vineyard 2009
Fresh and vibrant aromas of cappuccino, wild berries, exotic spices and cardamom emanate classic pinot noir characteristics from this part of the “true” Coast. Your mouth will burst with flavors of ripe wild blackberries, fennel, mocha, strawberry/rhubarb pie and crème brûlée. Powerful, yet fleshy tannins balance with the matured berry flavors along with racy acidity. The long, rich finish gives way to a slight hint of mint and citrus. A wonderful wine to age for 3-5 years.
