Williams Selyem Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2015

$84.99

Rare new release from cult pinot producer Williams Selyem Tasting Notes: Black cherry, musky herbs, and notes of pomegranate offer a more muscular counterpoint to the elegance of the Russian River Valley bottling. On the brooding nose are elements of smoky minerals and hints of flint add even more complexity. The traditional Sonoma Coastal profile really comes through on the palate with a robust Brazilian coffee complexion to the tannin that feathers out to an elegant minerally finish. Interlaced within this framework are flavors of Bing cherry and bittersweet chocolate. The 2015 Sonoma Coast will offer a very wide window of drinkability due to its sheer density.

Drank this over 3 nights and held up really well. Lush, almost non-existent tannins. Good ripe red fruit, flowers and drank really well with both pork and lamb. Wish I took tasting notes while drinking, but would definitely track down more bottles.

Perfect example of Sonoma Pinot. Sour cherries. Raspberries. Slight tartness. Youthful, yet nicely balanced. Medium body. I can see this improving with age. Paired perfectly with grilled tomahawk pork chops.

Such a delightful Pinot, definitely my style of expression of this varietal. Leathery, dusty, ripe red fruits, and rich complexity but still light on its feet.

Young (2015 drunk in 2017), with nice structure, balanced fruit, a hint of herbal/mineral quality, and a long soft finish. Accessible but with some complexity. Good young Pinot!
