  • Concur with EGH and STEADYEDDIE. Disappointing for Wm Selyem. Little to no acid; one dimensional and a short finish. My last one. If you have any left I recommend you try before it is too late.

  • Considering the producer, vineyard, and price, an ultimately disappointing drinking experience. Medium bodied with a straightforward, somewhat restrained, and surprisingly maturing/mature profile of red fruit and exotic spice notes. Seemingly resolved with a truncated finish. Not obviously flawed (purchased on release from the winery, so provenance/storage is not an issue), just not very exciting, and not offering the complexity, dimensions, vibrancy, length, or distinctiveness of the better examples of this producer/vineyard combination. In the 87-88 point range for this bottle.

  • On opening, this had aromas of asian spice (hoisin, clove), rose petal, and cola, with plummy / blackberry core. So far, so good. On tasting, very fruit forward, with cola notes, though a bit "sweet" and not quite in balance. Texture was fairly silky, however. Nevertheless, this wine seemed a bit disjointed, with an abrupt finish.

    I left half the bottle for day 2, and while the nose and flavors persisted, the wine seemed more subdued and not that vibrant compared to opening. I doubt this will improve with bottle age.

    I was expecting a bit more from this, given the hype surrounding W-S's 2007 vintage. On balance, while some of W-S's 2007's were winners, I have generally found the W-S 2007 single vineyard wines are somewhat disappointing.

  • very good RRV Pinot. Fruit forward and somewhat lighter than WS other vineyards. Wonderful with pork.

  • Drank alongside the 07 Litton. Litton was clearly the superior wine. This one had a bit of sweetness that almost spoke of too long hang time, and while it had a long finish, it was not that pleasant. Probably should have had it alone and it might have shown better.
