Williams Selyem Pinot Noir 2006

RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY | CALIFORNIA | $46

Deep, mature cherry wholly integrated with cedar, forest floor, leather and cardamom. Fragrant and multidimensional, providing earthy savory flavors that intertwine harmoniously with subtle fruit to yield a complex and exquisitely balanced quaff. Fruit and soil are perfectly married here, and they are inseparable. Medium bodied with a velvety, chamois-like texture offering a slight chew. A superb value at its release price — if one allows $9 and change per glass a value. And consider this next time that $8 glass of house Chardon-Grigio-Caber-Merlot-Pinot-Sara-Zin-mass-produced-whatever arrives at the hand of your waiter. An excellent wine. (Reviewed 10/19/12)
