93 Points from International Wine Cellar!

"A splendid display of dark fruits, including Bing cherry, crushed blackberry and mountain strawberry explode from the glass. The fruit profile is balanced with notes of lavender, vanilla bean, cinnamon and crushed rocks. The texture has a wonderful grip, which gives way to cherry pie and citrus flavors that linger on the palate. The finish is persistent with elements of spice, mineral and bittersweet chocolate. The 2012 Weir is a blockbuster Pinot Noir which is approachable in its youth but can also be enjoyed in years to come." -- Williams Selyem

Winemaker's Notes
Shy and demure at first, but notes of strawberry, sandalwood and mocha emerge with aeration. Hints of dried lavender and rose petal add to the allure of the Weir Vineyard Pinot Noir. At the entry, strawberry and red cherry flavors lead and give way to textural elements of fine-grained tannin and minerals, and an elegant, sensational finish.

"This wine is still one of my favorite blends to assemble and definitely a favorite to consume on a regular basis. It's always exciting to select barrels from vineyards like Rochioli, Bucher and our Estate to assemble bouquets of ripe blackberry jam, violets, plums, licorice, black truffle and toasty vanilla beans from our oak barrels. The palate flavors of blackberry/raspberry cobbler, cherry cola, cassis, smoked mushrooms and cinnamon coat your mouth with every sip and are very true to the individual lots that aid in the completeness of this assemblage. Ripe abundant tannins cut through the nicely balanced acidity that will make this vintage enjoyable for the next 8 - 10 years." -Winemaker, Bob Cabral

Extremely Limited, No discounts!

"This wine is crafted from the finest growers along Westside Road - Allen, Bacigalupi, Bucher, Rochioli Riverblock and the Williams Selyem Estate. The brilliant, red color is simply captivating. Floral notes of red rose and crushed rocks permeate the nose. The glass fills with red fruit driven by notes of cranberry, fresh strawberries and raspberries. With some air, deeper pitched aromas of Morello cherry penetrate the alluring aromatic profile. The nutmeg and allspice give way to a mineral-like finish, which is complemented by subtle vanilla flavors. The vivacious acids and long rich finish balance out this wine for cellar longevity." -The Winery

Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Williams Selyem Estate 2013 Red California Wine
"The hillsides of Westside Road are special because of their red soils, which seem to impart a mineral elegance; the Williams Selyem Estate typifies this. Pure cherry notes intermix with blood orange, oyster shell and fennel seed, and meld seamlessly with the elegance of the French oak flavors imparted during barrel aging. The very fine acidity highlights a precision that drives the length of the polished tannins. A very textural wine that must be cellared to achieve its full potential."
