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.

  • . . . and, boy, are my arms tired.I don't know when I first heard the term "Super Tuscan."  I'm guessing that it was 10-12 years ago.  I really did not know what it meant--me being very focussed on my California world.I did, of course, learn that a Super Tuscan was a wine that was made from grapes that were outside the Tuscany tradition--specifi...

    Snoothrank:

    Nose is a mélange of strawberry, cherry and raspberry. Enters the mouth with a rich texture. The palate shifts to crushed rock minerality, strawberry and tart cherry with a slight effervescence on the top of the tongue. Finished long with bright acidity. Best served with a good chill on it. The mid-palate goes a bit flat when reaching room temp.... Read More

  • California has clubbed Chardonnay with oak like a baby seal with a Louisville Slugger.  Beaten it with wood to a buttery pulp.  Sullying the Burgundian beauty that lies within.  Thankfully, producers in Oregon and Washington are reviving Chardonnnay and telling the California Cougar Juice producers what's up. http://www.nwwineanthem.com/2012/05/...

Today I go to the Williams-Selyem pick-up party and they're pouring a 2011 Vin Gris that is really flashy as well.Purity of ... Read More
