TN: 2010 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

  • 2010 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Russian River Valley - USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (1/1/2021)
    Lazy rainy New Years day day wine, playing guitar, football in the background. Bottle decant for about 45, poured a glass and let that sit for 20 more. Dark garnet with shades of brick, quite opaque. Swirls lighter than it looks/feels. Nose is dark sour cherry, tobacco box, strawberry tops with the greens. The front is dark cherry, hints of cola, tart, acidity is higher side of medium and ebbs and flows from front to back. Tannins are still a bit gritty, felt more moving from front to mid. Finish is dark fruit, a touch of vanilla, and fades kinda flat yet lingers. It just feels a bit disjointed end-to-end... good fruit up front, acidity and tannins not all playing together at varying times and the finish loses the steam with a touch of heat. None of the notes all come together for a chord. Might be a drink younger and I missed the window wine or a better with food wine. That said, it has all the elements there, it just doesn't come together consistently. Drink up and make the most of it, maybe others have better luck.
