Williams Selyem Westside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir 2017

The deep ruby color of this wine beckons and the nose of dark cherry and mountain strawberry does not disappoint. Perfume and earthy aromas comingle to show the uniqueness of the six terroirs on Westside Road from which this wine is crafted. Hints of rose petal reveal the Russian River Valley signature, and the minerality and crushed rock elements highlight the Westside Road terroir. Powerful and brooding on the nose, the palate is equally as complex with rich dark fruits and lively flavors of tangerine. The tannins are concentrated but well-resolved, and the finish is punctuated with an oolong tea sensation.

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.
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.
