2011 Williams Selyem Weir Vineyard Pinot Noir, Yorkville Highlands
The aromas of wild blackberries, forest floor, Asian spices and minerals direct the nose in this vintage. Concentrated flavors of cherries, blackberry cobbler, and anise are complimented by chewy grape tannins and soft,toasted oak on the finish. This is a focused wine with much more complexity than in the past. The Weir Vineyard seems to come into its own within 5-6 years.
