Williams Selyem Central Coast Pinot Noir 2017

This wine has a beautiful nose that is complexed with dark berries and smoky herbs that mix with notes of crushed oyster shell and walnut skin. Tangy flavors of citrus and berries burst from the glass. The tannins are very refined, and notes of nutmeg and toasted chestnut come through on the finish. This is a very elegant offering that should be enjoyed with lighter fare.

THE VINEYARD
The Vista Verde Vineyard, located a couple miles southeast of Hollister,
California, near the small town of Tres Pinos in San Benito County. This
heavy limestone vineyard is separated into nine blocks that include
clones such as Pommard, Calera, Canada, 667, Mt. Eden, and Swan.
HARVEST 2017
It was an auspicious start to the 2017 growing season with steady rain
followed by dry spells which allowed for the soil profile to fill up
progressively. The waterworks kicked into high gear in January and as
the soil dried up, temperatures moderated, and bud break ensued by
mid-March. Steady rain through the vegetative cycle was balanced with
days of brilliant sunshine which helped to grow green, healthy plants.
The weather was very fine in May for the flowering period and ideal for
the fruit set. As the season progressed, there were periods of heat that
occurred with some regularity. With plenty of water in the soil profile,
the plants did not stress too much and physiological maturity continued
at an accelerated pace. In 2017, the harvest timeframe was compressed
and many of the vineyards were ready in a short period of time. The
process was nearly complete by the time the intense Labor Day heat
wave hit and, thankfully, had concluded before the devastating wildfires
in October. The resulting wines show a refinement to the tannin
structure which will allow for early consumption but will age gracefully
with mid-term cellaring. Through and through, 2017 is an excellent
vintage.
