Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 750ml
Strawberry and cherry notes mix with subtle notes of allspice and clove. The palate offers softer tannins with hints of black tea and seamless acidity. Sourced from our outstanding vineyards in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast AVAs, the Sonoma County always represents an outstanding value. Something to enjoy on the early side as you wait for the vineyard designates to mature.
This is an outstanding showcase for the vintage, showing depth and concentration mixed with elegance. Dried herb, black tea, turned earth and crushed rock accent a medium-bodied core of dark cherry, blueberry and currant, with rounded tannins.
Lots of ripe cherries and mulberries as well as an almost blue fruit quality all emerge from the 2019 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast. Medium-bodied and super elegant, this seamless Pinot Noir shines on all accounts. It has a kiss of background oak to integrate, yet the balance is spot on, its tannins are ripe and polished, and it's just a gorgeous appellation Pinot Noir that readers should snatch up.
Medium ruby, the 2019 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast offers spicy black fruits on the nose with savory and earthy undertones. The palate is bright and spicy with a finely grained texture and long, uplifted finish.
Very much following the lead of Williams Selyem’s 2018 Sonoma Coast bottling, this is again a very fruit forward offering that sports the lovely, very supple, near velvety palatal feel of a well-crafted Pinot Noir. If picking one of the winery’s current lot for drinking in the relative near term, this is the one that gets our vote, albeit not about to fade away any time soon. It is, in short, very delectable stuff.
