Williams Selyem Foss Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Beautifully dense in color. The aromatic profile is power packed with notes of a fruit bowl chock-full of dark fruits, such as blueberry and boysenberry. A top note of dried flowers adds a wonderful surprise and seems to counterpoint the denseness of the nose. Saddle leather and cigar box further the complex the brooding nature of this wine. Flavors of Bing cherry immediately transition to blond tobacco and Mocha Java coffee bean notes. The finish is round and supple with a tenacious sappy cling.

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.
HARVEST 2015
The 2015 vintage continues the hit parade of great quality vintages of the
last four years. The season started under extreme drought conditions
despite a wet early winter. January was very dry and warm and brought
bud break earlier than expected. The rains returned in early February
and dramatically slowed down the growth of the plants. May
temperatures were some of the coldest on record and negatively
impacted flowering and therefore fruit set. By the end of July, the heat
returned and, coupled with limited fog intrusion, the ripening process
sped along quickly. Despite an auspicious start and a dramatic finish to
the season, the 2015 wines may surpass some of the great recent vintages
as they are bold and yet maintain their trueness to site. With superb
color, structure and acidity, the wines have staying power, but with the
wonderful texture and richness that are expressed today, who can resist
them now?
