Williams Selyem Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2016

Sourced from the Russian River Valley and the Sonoma Coast AVAs, the Sonoma County epitomizes elegance. Notes of strawberry and cherry are complemented by blueberry aromas. Hints of dried herbs and allspice combine with notes of Earl Grey tea. The palate mimics the nose with pretty strawberry and cherry flavors, and an added essence of plum. There is enough acidity to provide freshness all the way to the cherry stone sensation on the finish. This is a serious wine that is fruit-forward yet can definitely be enjoyed in its youth.

THE VINEYARDS
The Pinot Noir for this blend was sourced from the Lone Oak Vineyard,
the Bucher Vineyard, the Foss Vineyard, the Flax Vineyard and from the
Terra de Promissio Vineyard.
HARVEST 2016
The 2016 vintage was an excellent growing season, and started out as
the previous four vintages; with a warm and dry winter. The main
difference in 2016 was cooler temperatures in late February, and
increasing rain totals in March that helped slow down vegetative
growth. The net result was a slightly longer vegetative cycle, a slower
grape maturation cycle, and therefore a later harvest compared to 2015.
These events allowed for perfect maturation of the grape tannins and
flavor development. Harvest started with pleasant weather on August
10 in the Middle Reach Neighborhood vineyards (Westside Road).
Weather in late August cooled, and by early September temperatures
warmed up and dry conditions prevailed. The result was our core
harvest was completed under ideal conditions by end of September.
Overall, the wines from the 2016 vintage exhibit wonderfully polished
tannins due to long and slow grape maturation on the vine.
