2005 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Central Coast (USA, California, Central Coast)

California, Central Coast, Pinot Noir, USA

Ruby red slightly cloudy color followed by a nose of cranberry, nutmeg, and sour cherry. Maybe even a hint of jasmine and peet moss. Lush palate of sour cherry, red currant, and spice with a good shot of acidity that finished very nicely. Seems like this could pass for a village burgundy or good Bourgogne if it wasn’t for the pronounced spice. Very good effort and I prefer this vintage of WS CC over the prior two. Certainly a great QPR at release price.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
