This wine is still one of my favorite blends to assemble and definitely a favorite to consume on a regular basis. It's always exciting to select barrels from vineyards like Rochioli, Bucher and our Estate to assemble bouquets of ripe blackberry jam, violets, plums, licorice, black truffle and toasty vanilla beans from our oak barrels. The palate flavors of blackberry/raspberry cobbler, cherry cola, cassis, smoked mushrooms and cinnamon coat your mouth with every sip and are very true to the individual lots that aid in the completeness of this assemblage. Ripe abundant tannins cut through the nicely balanced acidity that will make this vintage enjoyable for the next 8 - 10 years.

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.

The 2009 Pinot Noir Westside Road Neighbors is made from a collection of vineyards along Westside Road, including Allen, Bacigalupi, Rochioli Riverblock and the estate's own vineyard. Dark red cherries, spices and flowers flow effortlessly from this plump, juicy wine. A soft, textured finish rounds out this pretty Pinot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
