Community Tasting Notes (8) Median Score: 92 points

  • Same bottle as dzop, similar impression. This has held up well but the fruit has that annoyingly overripe root beery/black cherry character that is unfortunately so common in RRV Pinot and that I really don't like. Otherwise a nice wine, with good acidity and silky tannins, but this one is not for me.

  • Totally underwhelming. For my palate, overripe; stewed fruit, root beer, tea, rhubarb. Everything I don't like in pinot. This was certainly showing a pleasant tertiary leafiness, with well integrated tannin and a fragrant nose, but I just didn't like what it was selling, even if the sales pitch was first class.

  • Starting to hit that fully mature stage. A light red color. Pretty nose of red cherry, black cherry, tea, and mushrooms. In the mouth, beautiful texture but showing just a touch of dryness. Plenty of fruit, with lovely complexity. Lots of earth and spice here. Good acidity. Solid finish. Very pretty and balanced. A-

  • 13.3% alcohol. Slightly aged color, with bricking at the rim of the glass and lightened at the center. Really lovely nose of mature Pinot, with a quite striking forward fruit note of black cherry, along with mushroom, flowers, spice, and damp earth. In the mouth, a velvety, lovely texture that delivers the palate in an elegant, graceful way that makes you want to keep drinking more. Strong acidic kick. Long finish. Beautiful stuff. A-/A

  • At Aqua with MC et al. Superb. The best of my recent string of older Williams Selyems, and possibly the best aged CA pinot I have ever had. Light to medium bodied and crystal clear ruby red in color. Delicate red cherry flavors; clearly California in origin, but not overly so. Still alive, though no reason to wait.
