Seavey Cabernet Sauvignon 1994 1.5L
Seavey Cabernet Sauvignon 1994 1.5L

Extremely Limited, No Discounts! 91 Points - Wine Advocate, December 1997 "The glories of this estate remain its Cabernet Sauvignons. After retasting the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon, I was even more impressed. Made from low yields of approximately 2 tons of fruit per acre, from Seavey's east-facing hillside vineyards in the Conn Valley, the 1994 exhibits an opaque purple color, and an exuberant yet still young and unformed nose of spice, black fruits, and cedar. Full-bodied, with layers of dense, ripe fruit, this rich, full-bodied, moderately tannic wine should be at its best in 3-5 years. It will keep for two decades or more." -Robert Parker

Verite La Joie 2007 Red California Wine
Verite La Joie 2007 Red California Wine
100 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2011
"Composed of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec, the 2007's fruit came from four sources, Alexander Valley Mountain Estate, Knight's Valley, Chalk Hill and Bennett Valley. This utterly perfect, flawless wine reveals great intensity along with a wonderful perfume of roasted coffee, blueberries, blackberries, spring flowers, forest floor and crushed rock. Full-bodied and viscous without being heavy, the wine possesses admirable precision as well as good acidity and balance. This stunning wine is developing beautifully. It contains 14.4% alcohol (one of the highest amounts) and a final pH of 3.64. It should last another 30 years." -Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Verite Le Desir 2007 Red California Wine
Verite Le Desir 2007 Red California Wine
100 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2011
"A profound blend of 44% Cabernet Franc, 44% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Malbec, with 56% of the fruit from Chalk Hill, 26% from the Alexander Valley Mountain Estate, 14% from Knight's Valley and 4% from Bennett Valley, the 2007 is a wine of unbelievable intensity. It boasts a deep blue/purple color as well as notes of acacia flowers, graphite, licorice, blackberries, blueberries and a hint of burning embers/charcoal, superb intensity and purity, and abundant tannin in the finish. This massive wine needs 5-6 more years of bottle age, and is meant for 35-40 years of cellaring." -Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Williams Selyem Calegari Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014 Red California Wine 750 mL
Williams Selyem Calegari Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014 Red California Wine 750 mL

93 Vinous Media August 2016

"Black cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and licorice are all pushed front and center in the 2014 Pinot Noir Calegari Vineyard. Dark, powerful and dense, the 2014 offers notable depth and richness. Even so, there is an unrestrained wildness to the 2014 that is only likely to become more prominent with the passage of time. The virile tannins could use another year or two in bottle to soften. This is one of the more eccentric wines in the range, yet all the elements are nicely balanced throughout. The Calegari also feels like the ripest wine in the range." -Antonio Galloni

Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard 2011 Red California Wine
Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard 2011 Red California Wine

2 bottles Not Discontable

93 points International Wine cellar May/June 2013 2011

Williams-Selyem Winery Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard Russian River Valley Bright ruby.

Black raspberry, cherry-cola and fresh flowers on the highly perfumed nose. Fleshy, nicely concentrated red fruit preserve flavors are braced by gentle acidity and complicated by a candied floral quality. Becomes weightier in the glass while maintaining its vibrancy, finishing sweet and long, with persistent florality. Very sexy already but this pinot is balanced to reward at least mid-term aging.

94 Points from International Wine Cellar!

"The 2012 Allen Vineyard Pinot Noir is another blockbuster wine. Aromas and flavors of strawberry and red cherry are lifted with lively notes of fresh roses. Round at the entry, the tannins build on the palate and finish with notes of pencil lead and mineral." -- Williams Selyem

Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard 2013 Red California Wine
Winemaker's Notes:
Juicy strawberry and black cherry are complemented perfectly with citrus and creamy vanilla elements. Complex notes of cinnamon, crushed rocks and earthy tea add to the elegant nose that is Allen Vineyard Pinot Noir. Red flowers and red cherry provide an immediate lift in the mouth, which give way to highly polished tannins and an Oolong tea feel. This wine has a staying power that lingers on and on. The old vines on this site produce an incredible concentration on the nose and palate, which is unparalleled.

Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Burt Williams' Morning Dew Ranch Vineyard 2012 Red California Wine
Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Burt Williams' Morning Dew Ranch Vineyard 2012 Red California Wine
94 Points from International Wine Cellar!

"Located in the far end of the Anderson Valley, referred to as the "deep end", Burt Williams' Morning Dew Ranch sits in an ideal cool climate location for Pinot Noir. This is a highly expressive wine, rich in aromatics with notes of pomegranate, orange, allspice and vanilla. Additional layers of ginger, pencil lead and minerals complete the intense profile. Round and supple in the mouth, the seamless acidity carries the flavors and the fine grained tannins effortlessly into the long finish. This is another impressive vintage from Burt Williams' Morning Dew Ranch, which will improve with an additional 7-10 years of aging." -- Williams Selyem

Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Burt Williams' Morning Dew Ranch Vineyard 2013 Red California Wine
Winemaker's Notes
Explosive aromatics of black cherry, pomegranate and elderberry immediately emerge from the glass, while subtle touches of mandarin orange and vanilla keep the nose fresh. A surprising note of nectarine further adds to the complex aroma. Fleshy on the palate, there is weight without heaviness, owing to the balanced acidity. In the mouth, minerals and finely textured tannin seem to cling to the palate and finish with a spicy cherry pit impression. Again, patience is required in this glorious effort.
