    Default [TN] '04 Williams-Selyem PN

    Last night's dinner after our return back to the frigid Midwest was a
    roast pork loin with Brussels Sprouts. Jean wanted a red with the pork,
    so I opened:

    2004 Williams-Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
    nose: sappy, tart raspberry, pencil lead, a hint of spice
    palate: medium-light body, good acidity and balance, deep fruit

    This was the last bottle of a purchase made with our good friends Bruce
    and Joy (who are on many CA mailing lists). We found that the simpler
    appellation wines were more appealing to our taste, hence this
    non-vineyard designate. Quite a good match with the pork and a wine
    that truly did remind me of Burgundy.

    I understand your comment about the simpler appellation wines. I find
    that many of the W-S Pinot's are either harsh and tannic or very
    candied and sweet.
