2013 Gary Farrell Pinot Noir Sonoma Russian River Valley
The Selection" this beauty refers to is a barrel selection made up of the Hallberg, Rochioli, and Toboni vineyards in Russian River. This is a cherry jam and incense bomb, with really pure and fine red fruit aromas. "This might be one of the best values on the market, given the quality... it's a tightly wound, savory, fruity wine that's elegant and compelling. The tannins and oak are lightly imprinted around strawberry-rhubarb and fresh-cut rose, and the texture seductively silky. This is a delicious treat of a wine that should also age." "
