Gary Farrell is a Russian River pioneer. In 1982 - before the Russian River AVA even existed - Gary Farrell crafted his first Pinot Noir from fruit grown in the now-legendary Rochioli Vineyard. Today, the estate continues Gary’s legacy and seeks out only the vineyards that possess a truly unique voice. Then wines are crafted to tell their story, from the Russian River Valley and beyond.

Opening up with an intoxicating bouquet of brandied cherries, raspberry panna cotta and rose geranium, the 2018 Russian River Selection Pinot Noir lures you in to discover layers upon layers of aroma and flavor. The initial scent of juicy red fruits and floral herbs linger on the nose while subtle hints of clove, cocoa butter and creamy caramel swirl in the glass. The palate explodes with the taste of cranberry chutney, Hibiscus tea and vanilla beans with undertones of ginger snap cookies and dark cocoa nibs. The underscore of vibrant acidity and silky tannin make this wine perfect on its own or with a variety of different foods.

Sumptuous in strawberry, blackberry and nutmeg spice, with prominent tannin structure, this is a balanced wine sourced from enviable sites such as Hallberg, Rochioli and Martaella. Orange peel, black tea and dried herb accent a creamy, decadent texture that is never weighted down, boosted by buzzy acidity throughout.
