WILLIAMS SELYEM PINOT NOIR, CENTRAL COAST 2015
NVWE Notes: This charmer is perhaps the finest Central Coast the winery has yet produced. The nose offers bright, perfectly-defined aromas of Umeboshi plum, red boysenberry, grenadine, Maraschino cherry, blood orange, yellow and pink rose, tooted grain and hazelnut husk. It is deeply ripe yet piquantly fresh on the palate, where a near-ideal mix of tannic grip and fruit zest bring cutting clarity to flavors of sweet cherry, spiced plum, orange-cranberry relish, vanilla and toasted hazelnut. The finish is super-long and vibrantly youthful. This is a delicious wine that will improve for several years and may well prove long-lived.
This winery always manages to pack in rich fruit and hearty spice. This bottling shows bay leaf, anise, pine needle and black tea aromas that accent a core of plum. That hearty dark fruit carries through to the palate as well, but warms up with earthy soil, licorice and minty fudge flavors. A luscious, lingering mouthful. Date published 8/1/2017 Matt Kettmann
