Lot #433. Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Calegari Vineyard 2016

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93 WA.
"The 2016 Pinot Noir Calegari Vineyard has a medium ruby-purple color, with a nose of spiced cranberry sauce, blueberry, baked rhubarb, peppered meats and blackberry preserves with touches of nutmeg, warm earth, mineral notions and oodles of potpourri spice. It's light to medium-bodied and silky with lush fruits anchored by mineral notions, firmly framed by grainy tannins and finishing very long with great freshness. 721 cases produced. California lost one of its great wine pioneers with the passing of Burt Williams in December 2019. The first commercial vintage of Williams Selyem was in 1981, and all these years later, it remains a benchmark for Pinot Noir in California. Williams influenced countless winemakers and was integral in shaping the wine landscape in California that we are fortunate to inherit today. We raise our glasses in your honor." Wine Advocate Interim, Dec 2019
Provenance: The Capitaine Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $60
