Williams Selyem Westside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir 2014

The nose starts out with red cherry, wild berries, and plum, and brightens up with notes of juniper berry, citrus, and redwood shavings. A brooding element lurks in the background and evokes thoughts of Asian spices. With time in the glass, the wine opens up with aromas of flowers and lavender. The wine is very focused in the mouth, and has a very protracted mouthfeel. Flavors of raspberry, cherry, and cranberry, with a smoked meat finish are interwoven in the palate architecture. The full-bodied tannins are reminiscent of Oolong tea. Polished and balanced, the wine’s texture is superb and highlights the best of what Pinot Noir can be.

THE VINEYARDS
The Pinot Noir for this blend was sourced from neighboring vineyards
along Westside Road: Allen, Bacigalupi, Bucher, Flax, Rochioli Riverblock,
and our Williams Selyem Estate.

An excellent growing season, and started out as the
previous four vintages; with a warm and dry winter. The main difference
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. 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.
