WS ages like Burgundy. So much subtlety and nuance on this 16 year old, it is truly intoxicating. The fruit is still alive and kicking. No over ripeness. Bright acid. Mostly red fruits. Long finish. Great effort.
Drank this wine with dinner; notes are limited; however, the wine was first rate and deserves recognition on CellarTracker as such.
Bottle resting in cellar since purchase at the winery. Wine in very good shape with excellent ullage. Light sediment, but not decanted. Intact cork. Pinot Noir favors immediately noticeable upon opening, which is generally a harbinger of good thing to follow. Good color and lots of well-integrated fruit and cola flavors in the nose. Palate was very elegant and rich, but not ripe or hot. Refined berry and cola elements; both of which were nicely integrated. Acids and flavors were well-balanced, lovely finish. This wine is at its apex – a joy to drink. Gives credence to the idea that William Selyem Pinot Noirs form good years are wonderful to drink after a decade of cellaring.
Served with polenta topped with wild mushrooms – a perfect match.
