Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Eastside Road Neighbors 2013

Williams Selyem Winery began as a dream of two friends, Ed Selyem and Burt Williams, who pursued weekend winemaking as a hobby in 1979 in a garage in Forestville, California, and made their first commercial vintage in 1981. In less than two decades, Burt and Ed created a cult-status winery receiving global praise. Together they set the standard for Pinot Noir winemaking in the U. S. Today John and Kathe Dyson, purchased the winery from Burt and Ed in 1998, carry on the passion for Pinot Noir winemaking.

Had this at an event; Barrel aged for 15 months (60% new and 40% 1 year old), sourced from four sites along Eastside Road: Foss, Calegari, Hunt Ryd, and Lone Oak Vineyards. Dark Ruby with black fruits and sweet spice. On the palate cherry, blackberry and ripe plum flavors with cinnamon spice and alluring soft tannins, still wrapped with nice structure. The finish lingers with a complex ending of cacao and earthy mineral tones. Nice! Tasting Sample!
