Williams Selyem 2007 Litton Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $100

A spectacular Pinot Noir, but a very young one, and extremely dry. It’s a wine of great structure, with rich acids and tannins framing extraordinarily complex flavors of grilled cherries, strawberries and raspberries, with complicating notes of cola, pomegranates, orange zest, anise, dusty Asian spices and smoky sandalwood. A truly great Pinot Noir from a great…

Williams Selyem 2009 Precious Mountain Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast)

  1. $94

A stupendous Pinot Noir, showing how beautifully this vineyard performs in the remote Sonoma Coast above Fort Ross. Williams Selyem’s last few vintages of Precious Mountain have been extraordinary, but this 2009 tops them all. The wine is as light as a feather in the mouth, modest in alcohol and delicately feminine, like pure satin. However, few Pinot Noirs in the…

Williams Selyem 2010 Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $75

This expresses the greatness of its vintage and vineyard, offering wave after wave of raspberry and cherry pie flavors, plus notes of red currant, sweet licorice, spicy Dr. Pepper and smoky sandalwood. There’s also something exotically briary and wild that intrigues. Even more remarkable is the texture, an amalgam of acids and tannins that rivals any Pinot Noir…

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $94

In recent years, Precious Mountain Vineyard has provided Bob Cabral with some of his most glorious fruit. Tremendous in flash and depth, it offers compelling flavors of raspberry and cherry, accented by sweet, smoky oak. There’s such complexity in the acid and tannin structure, and in the earthy, stony, spicy nuances, that you find something new to love with every…

Williams Selyem 2008 Litton Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $100

This is the best of the winery’s new releases, both for drinking now and for cellaring. Combines power and elegance, with upscale flavors of cherries, currants, cola, rhubarbs, dried herbs and oak, wrapped into devastatingly rich tannins and a perfect touch of acidity. Should age well for 10 years.

Williams Selyem 2007 Precious Mountain Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $90

Ripe and delicious right out of the bottle, although it will age well. Made from a vineyard on the true Sonoma Coast, in the remote Fort Ross area, it’s fabulously rich in cherry, framboise and red currant flavors, with intriguing waves of anise, bacon and sweet, vanilla-scented smoky sandalwood. There’s a foresty taste, too, suggesting dried pine needles. The…

Williams Selyem 2012 Bucher Vineyard Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $59

This is beautifully lilting in preciously defined aromas of rose petal and wild strawberry. From there, it’s all subtlety and ethereal elegance. The wine is restrained, nurtured in a basket of nutmeg and graham cracker, as well as freshly packed mushroomy earth. This wine is a stunner right out of the glass, but is sure to continue its fine course through 2022–2025.
