Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Westside Road Neighbors 2015

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Another juicy generous offering the 2010 Pinot Noir Westside Road Neighbors is at once plump yet also mid-weight and gracious. Sweet spice and floral notes wrap around a core of expressive inviting Russian River fruit as the wine opens up in the glass. Hints of raspberries strawberries and cinnamon linger on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

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

Awesome lacking only opulence and power to be truly great. A veritable spice cabinet on the nose. 1/2010

Medium berry flavors, not he complexity that I expected for the cost. Still a good pinot, but not a great one.

Started very tight but opened up to reveal a great nose of black cherries, raspberr, cola. Good balance, acidity, and structure; solid tannins On the palate sweet red fruit, jammy, mild oak. Will benefit from more time

The 2007 Pinot Noir Westside Neighbors displays slightly more minerality, has a fragrant nose of raspberry, cherry, and root vegetables, medium to full body, and an excellent finish. Both of these wines are capable of evolving for 7-10 years. Alex Lallos. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2007 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Westside Neighbors 750ml

Explosive strawberry and raspberry liqueur scents are accented by exotic spice and cola notes on the vibrant nose. Enticing sweet red berry flavors are lifted by fresh acidity and firmed by dusty tannins. The finish of suave, focused red fruits shows... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The most seductive but somewhat superficial wine is the 2004 Pinot Noir Westside Road Neighbors, made from the fruit of five nearby vineyards that are blended together. This has a slightly darker color than the previous two wines, with more sweet cherry, damp earth, and underbrush notes. It is medium-bodied, crisp, and best drunk in its first 3-4 years of life.
