Here’s a barrel selection comprised of numerous sites: Hallberg, Rochioli, Toboni, Floodgate, Martaella, Hop Kiln, Kozel, Nonella, Stephens, Pratt-Lakeview. Wine Enthusiast loved this one too, saying it “shows youthful tannins and oak that supports without intrusion, allowing the crunch of cranberry, strawberry and pomegranate to speak forcefully.” A wonderfully spicy, fruit-driven bottle of Pinot Noir that is drinking very well right now. Bring on the roast squab!
Located along a ridge top amongst the native redwoods, oaks and madrones, Gary Farrell's winery is smack dab in the middle of the Russian River Valley and nestled into one of the most magical places on earth. The winery specializes in making some of the best Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from Sonoma's most recognized regions. Their winery is immaculate and ideal for serious winemaking. An array of presses, sorting tables and temperature controlled tanks mean that they have the utmost control during fermentation and winemaking. But it's not enough to be technically perfect - these guys have committed themselves to cultivating relationships with growers, vendors and customers too. A wine crafted with integrity and honesty goes a long way to make friends, don't you agree?
Crisp acidity buoys sharp red fruit in this delectable wine—a blend of multiple sites across the appellation. Medium build, it shows youthful tannins and oak that supports without intrusion, allowing the crunch of cranberry, strawberry and pomegranate to speak forcefully.
