Wine Tasting Notes: Williams Selyem 2006 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard
Williams Selyem 2006 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard
Diva Rating: 3 stars (out of 5 stars)
One of the classic boutique Pinot Noir producers in California who produced their first wine in 1981, Williams Selyem makes an array of nice wines with grapes grown in the Sonoma Coast. Over the last few years, Kuzak and I have regularly enjoyed their offerings. This 2006 Hirsch while not dazzling, was a solid wine with nice cherry fruit and tannins. It possessed a more acidic character which tasted best when pared with food. The body is on the lighter side, but it did not showcase the depth that would make it worth aging over the long term. None the less, I recommend checking out Williams Selyem and tasting their wines!
