Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery

WINEMAKER: Theresa Heredia

Rooted in the RRV, with vineyards that tell a story. In 1982 – before the Russian River AVA even existed – Gary Farrell made his first wines on handshake deals with the growers in the region’s pioneer growers – Rochioli, Allen, Hallberg – whose Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards captured a time and a place. Today, they maintain this approach to winemaking, starting in the vineyards of the Russian River AVA and beyond, with the same focus on pure varietal expression.

2017 Chardonnay, Rochioli-Allen Vineyards

Russian River Valley

Flecks of gold reflect brilliantly through an inviting straw hue as the 2017 Rochioli-Allen Chardonnay is poured into the glass. Aromas of apple blossoms and chaparral clematis entice the senses upon first swirl. Elements of dried stone fruits coupled with citrus zest provide endless layers of complexity and verve. Focused minerality and crystalline acidity complete the package, delivering a stunning concentration of silky texture and balanced flavors.

2017 Pinot Noir, Lancel Creek Vineyard

Russian River Valley

Savory aromas of rosehip, white pepper and fennel compliment the subtle fruity characteristics reminiscent of cranberry and pomegranate liquor. Succulent flavors of Satsuma zest, rhubarb and raspberry comingle beautifully, leading up to a concentrated and refined palate weight that lingers with fine, silky tannins. A nice dollop of juicy acidity carries the experience to a seemingly unlimited finish. This is a gorgeous, coastal climate wine that is perfect for wine lovers who appreciate the mystery of Pinot Noir.
