Inky ruby. Potent aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and dried rose, with exotic Indian spice and gingerbread nuances adding complexity. Deep, fleshy dark berry flavors show liqueur-like depth and intensity, with slow-building tannins adding grip and structure. Develops more vibrancy and red fruit character with aeration and finishes with outstanding clarity and sappy persistence. This is another '07 from Williams-Selyem that calls for patience. (ST) 94+
The deepest-colored of these Pinots is the 2007 Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard. The opaque ruby/purple color is followed by a tight but promising nose of black currants, black cherries, black raspberries, flint, and earth. Pure, rich, and full-bodied, this youthful effort is the most backward and infantile of all the Pinots. It may also have the finest upside potential, but it needs 2-3 years of cellaring. It should evolve effortlessly over the next 12-15 years. (RP) 93+
This is one of the darkest of Williams Selyem’s new Pinots and also one of the ripest. It’s jammy in the intensity of raspberry and cherry fruit, with a savory, Dr. Pepper cola richness. The spiciness, which is one of winemaker Bob Cabral’s specialties in capturing, is exotic. *Cellar Selection*
The Cobb family grows this fruit on a ridge near Occidental, four miles from the Pacific, at elevations between 900 and 1,200 feet. This 2007 is dark, both in color and intensity, with the sweet scent of blackberries and a deliciously plush texture. The scents of pomegranate and spice heighten the impression of blackness. It's a potent wine, suited to roast duck or squab.
