Williams Selyem - tasted recently?

After waiting patiently, I have finally "graduated" to the Williams Selyem mailing list. I've never actually had the chance to try any of the wines but their reputation precedes them. However, I also know that the original founders sold out nearly 10 years ago, though the new wine-maker seems to have earned some credibility with his subsequent releases.

Recent Spectator reviews appear fairly mixed (no '06s reviewed yet), and while the Parker reviews of the '06s (tasted pre-release I assume) are pretty highly rated, they seem to be written with all the enthusiasm of a streetwalker plying her trade. Tanzer's reviews of the '05s are pretty positive.

Anyone have any recent experience with Williams Selyem they can share?
