2012 Williams Selyem Burt Williams Morning Dew Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $78. This vineyard is located in the northern end or “deep end” of the Anderson Valley. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Effusive aromas of black cherry cola, blackberry jam, underbrush and oak-driven vanilla and anise. Mouth numbing flavors of black cherry, baking spice, dark chocolate, tea and anise with sequestered tannins and a huge, long, and I mean long, finish. Very soft and suave on the palate making for easy drinking now, but this wine can go the distance. A glorious wine that has many nuances to offer. Score: 95. Reviewed December 10, 2014
