2011 Williams Selyem Ferrington Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., $65. · Moderately dark reddish-purple hue in the glass. This captivating wine really requires study to reveal all its many nuances. Aromas of blackberry, ollaliberry, spice box and toasty oak. Flavors are complex and varied, including earthy dark berries, tar, spice box including cinnamon, fennel, and seasoned oak. Sappy, with a noticeable mid palate grip and tenacity, and a long finish. Beautifully balanced for long term aging. Score: 93. Reviewed December 18, 2013
