Of all wine varieties, Pinot Noir is undeniably the most expressive of place. Some of Williams Selyem’s prized sites include three estate properties that are highly expressive on their own, but when combined together offer perfect balance and harmony—much like a great piece of music. For this year’s offering, these three profound sites are blended for a composition that is truly exceptional.
The Williams Selyem Estate on the famed Westside Road expresses a lithe texture and mineral component, and is beautifully counterpointed to the robust and opulent nature of the Lewis MacGregor Estate. Newer plantings at the Drake Estate in Guerneville bring a liveliness and freshness that round out this amazingly concentrated Pinot Noir. Through precision farming and artisanal winemaking this never before blend is a quintessential Williams Selyem wine, and a true Russian River Valley, Sonoma County original.
