Very nice description of William's wines. I too "learned something new about William" once he released his wines. He came onto the Sonoma scene out of nowhere and jumped in with two feet leading events and being a cheerleader for our enthusiastic wine lover community. All I knew was that he would often arrive at an event at the last minute after flying in from a tech exec meeting. all smiles and fun. When he released his first vintage I was not only surprised to learn he was a fledging winemaker but wow, his wines were quite impressive. He deserves all the accolades he is getting. Great start from a winemaker to watch.

Hi, Alana,

Thanks so much for you comments, and I'm glad you found his wines impressive, too. I look forward to tracking his progress in the future, and to tasting his '12 vintage, since by all accounts '12 was of the best California has seen in a long while.

I met William via Twitter 3+ years ago and in person several times since. I got to taste through these wines with him in Santa Rosa last year and was enthralled, to say the least. The reactions from my Midwestern friends with whom I've shared these wines (especially those who "don't drink white wine") have been most interesting. This is a style of wine with which most people are not familiar. They demand your attention when drunk alone and absolutely shine when paired with a variety of foods. The last thing I needed was to join another wine club, but I couldn't help myself after tasting these. I look forward to having them in my cellar for years to come. Thanks for the interview and great tasting notes!
