Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Foss Vineyard 2014 Red California Wine 750 mL

$101.99

92 Vinous Media August 2016

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Foss Vineyard is one of the most linear and focused of the Russian River Pinots in this lineup. There is no shortage of depth or overall intensity, but the Foss is a wine that emphasizes persistence over the more exuberant style that is often found in the Russian River. Bright red cherry, pomegranate, chalk, white flowers and mint lead into the powerful driving finish. I would give the 2014 another year or two for the tannins to unwind a bit." -Antonio Galloni

Winemaker’s Notes Notes of earth, black cherry and cherry pit lead on the nose in this elegant offering. Rooibos tea and cedar notes further add to its complexity. Very round at the entry, the Foss site provides for a supple, polished tannin structure and the finish lingers on with a medley of bergamot citrus peel and dusty cocoa powder notes.

The Vineyard "The vineyard sits above Eastside Road in the Middle Reach region of the Russian River Valley. With a fine, clay loam soil type and a temperate microclimate, this site is extremely well drained and therefore an excellent site for Pinot Noir. Planted to Pommard, Swan, Mt. Eden, and 667 clones, together they offer a rich and complex palette to draw from in blending this incredibly rich and complex wine." – The Winery
