2006 Williams Selyem Weir Vineyard Yorkville Highlands Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., $56. Aged 15 months in 69% new and 31% 1-year-old French oak barrels. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Lovely nose offering dreamy aromas of fresh Bing cherries, rose petals, baking spice including nutmeg and potpourri. Delicious concentrated core of crunchy Bing cherry and black raspberry fruit with a cola accent finishing with a long, long explosion of citrus-infused cherry goodness. Lighter in this vintage, and noticeably crisp with admirable tension and minerality. A seamless wine of impressive sophistication. Drink or hold. Score: 95. Reviewed September 5, 2013
