Williams Selyem Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017

$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.

Simply wonderful. What a beautiful expression of the Sonoma Coast AVA. Calling it now: in 15-20 years, some of the high end Sonoma Coast wines will command the same prices as the best of Burgundy

Made in a fuller and extracted style with an unapologetic new world sensibility. Fruit and spice forward in the nose, with notes of raspberry and black cherry, cinnamon, chocolate, cola, violets, and black tea. Exhibits a lot of texture on the palate. It’s well made in its style - I would highly recommend it for folks looking for a fuller style of Pinot that’s still balanced.

Surprisingly good for an AVA blend, this wine leads with crunchy red and blue fruits with excellent structure and a nice finish. Bravo.
