WILLIAMS SELYEM PINOT NOIR, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2015
The 2015 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) captures the essence of the appellation in its bold, plum red fruit, cola and hard candy character. Radiant and bold, but without being overdone, the Russian River Pinot also makes a terrific introduction to both the house style and the very specific personality that defines what Russian River Pinot is all about.
NVWE Notes: Like many 2015 RRV Pinots, this is a bigger, tighter wine than is typical for this bottling. The nose is focused on coiled scents of Maraschino cherry, blueberry, Mr. Lincoln rose and toasted hazelnut, with any contributing spice notes well in the background. On the palate it proves rich in body and bright in zest, yet the red cherry, berry, rose and citric-edged flavors are even more wound-up than the nose suggests. The finish is lingering yet almost undeveloped, making this one of the most cellar-needy Williams-Selyem Pinots in recent memory. It will grow vastly more expressive over the next twelve months, but will want several years to show all of its beauty.
