Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2015

$84.99

Rare new release from cult pinot producer Williams Selyem Tasting Notes: Red cherry, strawberry confiture, and faded rose petal aromas seem to sing in the top registers in this alluring offering. Hints of beet root, dried herbs and wood spices offer some bass notes to complete this wonderful orchestral suite. With air, the aromas intensify with notes of Morello cherry. The palate is very dense on entry with a strong streak of minerality through to the finish. The tannins are extremely fine grained and reminiscent of Ceylon tea. The 2015 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a classic, and highlights the elegance and power of a truly great growing region.

Still needs time to coalesce because the ample savory toast and lush black and blue fruit seem to be in separate realms.

As the app says, this is a delectable wine and pairs well with any meat or pasta.

Love this Pinot! Such a solid producer. The structure is rock solid and confident, boasting a lovely array of complexities. Wet leather, cola, dusty cherries and raspberries, mild fennel, and moist black soil. Delicious.

Needs time - not like the Selyem I used to know. I tease that Mary and William are my favorites . That is Mary Edwards and William Selyem for Pinots!
