Williams Selyem Westside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir 2009
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
A rich, spicy wine, marked by cinnamon and clove-accented raspberries, cherries, cola and mushrooms, as well as a bit of funk. Lovely and complex, it's a blend of various vineyards whose fruit Williams Selyem sources in the northwestern Russian River Valley. Now-2015.
Very complete, complex and balanced, with subtle cherry, plum and raspberry fruit that's supple and graceful. Medium- to full-bodied, gaining depth and richness on the finish, where the flavors linger. Drink now through 2020. 968 cases made.
