WesMar Russian River Pinot Noir

Provided By:

WesMar Vineyards WesMar Winery was started in 2000 by husband and wife Kirk Wesley Hubbard and Denise Mary Selyem, both of whom previously worked with Russian River’s famous Williams & Selyem Winery. Their winery is ultra-boutique, consisting of 1500 square feet and no employees. We met Kirk and Denise while dining one evening at the Underwood Bar & Bistro in Graton in Sonoma County, and they promised to send us some of their wines, almost all of which are Pinot Noir. The wines are mainly sold through their mailing list, and they often sell out fast, so go to their website www.wesmarwinery.com if you’re interested in purchasing.

Winemaking at WesMar is very much a hands on, artisanal operation. Fermentation is done in five ton open-top stainless steel milk shipping containers with punch downs done by hand. Between 20 and 40 percent of the fruit is fermented whole cluster, and pressing is done with a bladder press once used for apples. The wines are aged in French oak for 11 months; between 50 and 70 percent of the barrels are new. Winemaking is done by gravity flow, and the wine is not filtered.

While the WesMar Pinot Noirs reflect the terroir of the different vineyards from which they are sourced, there is a house style here of nuanced wines, velvet smooth on the palate with a feminine character, the kind of Pinot Noir we love to drink and that combines well with modern cuisine. This is the first time we’ve tasted these wines. It surely won’t be the last.

There’s lovely purity of fruit in this wine from the nose to the finish. Medium light ruby in color, the wine is fruit forward with an attack of red cherries accompanied by a light earth note. The nicely balanced palate shows more pure red fruit and a touch of undergrowth, and it finishes very long.
