"Medium ruby-purple, the 2019 Pinot Noir Westside Road Neighbors offers plush black fruits laced with youthful, classy new oak that gives way to earth and amaro nuances with time in glass. The medium-bodied palate is polished, finely supported and fresh, and it finishes very long and spice-laced. All elegance and class, I can't wait to taste this with a few years of bottle age. 1,873 cases produced.

In January 2021, Williams Selyem announced the sale of a minority interest to the Faiveley family, who brings seven generations of Burgundian winemaking experience to the Russian River Valley. The sale is part of a longterm succession plan by current owners John and Kathe Dyson. Winemaker Jeff Mangahas notes that Faiveley is one of the first Burgundian houses to plant roots in the Russian River appellation, after the sale of Merry Edwards to Louis Roederer in 2019. There will be no day-to-day changes in winemaking, and Mangahas emphasizes his dedication to the style of wines set forth by Burt Williams 40 years ago." (WA)
