"The brilliant color and dark fruit profile of the Ferrington Vineyard Pinot Noir is a superb example of Pinot Noir from the Boonville area in Anderson Valley. Bing cherry and raspberry, along with floral notes and dried herbs intermingle on the nose and palate to create a vibrant wine. Elements of mineral, cardamom, nutmeg and vanilla add to the dynamic profile. The Ferrington Vineyard Pinot Noir retains a refreshing acidity, while displaying firm tannins. Hints of coffee nibs add to the lingering finish." -- Williams Selyem

"Deep, rich elements of blackberry and black cherry comingle with hints of lavender, nutmeg, allspice and sandalwood in this second offering from the Foss Vineyard. While plush and round on the palate, the fresh acidity carries on through the mid-palate and gives length to the wine's chocolaty tannings. Vanilla and baking spices complete the profile of this wonderfully rich wine." -- Williams Selyem

Winemaker's Notes Notes of earth, black cherry and cherry pit lead on the nose in this elegant offering. Rooibos tea and cedar notes further add to its complexity.

92 Vinous Media August 2016

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Foss Vineyard is one of the most linear and focused of the Russian River Pinots in this lineup. There is no shortage of depth or overall intensity, but the Foss is a wine that emphasizes persistence over the more exuberant style that is often found in the Russian River. Bright red cherry, pomegranate, chalk, white flowers and mint lead into the powerful driving finish. I would give the 2014 another year or two for the tannins to unwind a bit." -Antonio Galloni

Rated 94+ Points from Vinous Media, November 2016:

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Lewis MacGregor Estate Vineyard is one of the most compelling wines in this range, as it brings together the inherent richness of the Russian River with bright, salivating minerality that gives the flavors an extra kick of brightness. Bright red cherry, pomegranate, white pepper, chalk and blood orange are all beautifully delineated throughout. Simply put, this is an impeccable Pinot from Williams Selyem. Don't miss it! Drink: 2018-2029." -Antonio Galloni. Tasting date: July 2016

Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Olivet Lane 2012 Red California Wine
"For those of you who have been purchasing wines from us for over 15 years, this wine is like an old friend! This vineyard was planted in 1975 to a Martini selection of Pinot Noir that produces a classic Russian River Valley wine. The vibrant aromas fill your glass with cherries, raspberries, rose petal, fresh spices and white truffles. Your mouth will explode with a zesty raspberry and candied cherry flavors, accentuated by the taste of rich caramel, fresh cardamom, truffles and hints of lavender. Vibrant acidity helps this wine display an impressive clarity and energy on the long fruit-filled finish. The 2012 Olivet Lane Pinot Noir would pair extremely well with duck confit with lentils and pork belly." -The Winery

Extremely Limited, 2 Bottles in Stock!

"Very similar to the 2003 vintage with aromas of raspberry, black cherries, sage, roasted vanilla beans and cappuccino. The smallish crop on the Sonoma Coast in 2009 concentrated the supple tannins and fills your mouth with flavors of wild berries, citrus zest, dark chocolate, sweet spices and mineral. An extremely expressive and rich wine that will develop well with time." -Winemaker Bob Cabral

93 Points - International Wine Cellar, May/June 2011
"Glass-staining ruby. Seductively scented, expansive bouquet of smoky blackberry, boysenberry and resinous herbs. Cola and vanilla qualities gain power with aeration and carry onto the palate, which features sappy dark berry and candied cherry flavors. Tannins build slowly with air but not at the expense of the densely packed fruit. Impressively juicy and concentrated pinot with outstanding thrust and cling. As much as I admire the power and depth of this wine, I have a slight preference for the litheness of the Hirsch right now. It would be a treat to be able to compare them down the road." -Josh Raynolds
