Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Willam Selyem opens with a mild red raspberry bouquet with a hint of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is a red plum with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of strawberry. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild acidity drift away nicely. This wine would pair well with pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Simply put, the 2012 vintage was amazing in many respects. 2012 was a vintage where ripe mature stems, seeds and skin tannins were achieved with harmoniously balanced natural acidity. Enveloped with pure intense aromas, juicy flavors, and rich textures, these structured wines are clearly the result of a truly extraordinary vintage. A vintage like this, where everything comes together perfectly, is rare and will certainly be a vintage to enjoy for many years to come!
