2016 Williams Selyem Rochioli Riverblock Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $85. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Aromas of Bing cherry, exotic spice, blueberry, briar and toasty oak lead to a mid weight styled wine presenting the essence of black cherry underlain with oak-inspired licorice and toast flavors. Soft in the mouth, with shy acidity, balanced tannins and some length on the finish. Hard to criticize but not much to get excited about. Score: 89. Reviewed November 17, 2018
