2021 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
The Pinot Noir for this blend was sourced from the Terra de Promissio Vineyard, the Falstaff Vineyard, the Putnam Vineyard, the Starkey Vineyard, and our Drake Estate Vineyard.
Aromatically, the nose on the Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir has a cooler fruit character with undertones of dried herbs and wood spices. The cooler coastal hills often present wines with less fruit overtones and more savory notes. There is terrific coverage on the palate with soft acidity and broad tannins that tell the story of more adversity during the growing season. Red berry fruits and hints of graphite and cedar further add to the unique quality found in cool coastal climates.
