  • Clean and delicate ... this is a soft, yet delicious CA Pinot Noir. Lots of subtle layers.

  • 13.8% alcohol. Red cherry color, lighter at the rim of the glass but no bricking. Wonderful nose of red cherry and earth, with a hint of minerals in the background. In the mouth, bright cherry fruit is the soul of the palate, exploding with pleasing life. Strong acidity and otherwise uncomplicated, with a bit of earth, but the cherry is strong, lively, and appealing. It's purity is terrific. A-

  • Lovely now, but should have waited for greatness. Succulent and juicy orange notes, core of red fruit, medium/full in mouth yet exhibiting caressing tannins and a true feminine touch with roses and silky finish. Now thru 2025 92pts

  • This was my first WS "Central Coast" so drank with no expectations from prior bottles other than other pinots by this company. Opened the wine about an hour before dinner. Modest, dark fruit nose but opened a bit more with time in the glass. Smooth, nicely balanced wine, with some cherry/strawberry on the palate. Did not exhibit the complexity of the winemaker's RRV varietal of the same vintage. Nice finish.

  • This Pinot is really coming back to life! Just a few months ago it was quiet, rather "flat" and not very interesting. But now it has the layers and depth that showcase the classic Williams Selyem complexity that we know and love. This is not an overly-concentrated fruit bomb, but instead a delicate Pinot with balanced acidity and subtle fruit transitions. Enjoyed over two days and it didn't disappoint.
