Gary Farrell has always produced interesting Pinot’s – meaning, not the typical California strawberry driven kind. And this 2020 is no exception. Pulled from seven different vineyards, the art is in the blending. Upfront there is pomegranate, plum, green apple, then it turns to black tea, black raspberry, mild strawberry, dried tobacco, light cola and coriander. The acidity is solid and the tannins appropriate to the task. This is what comes from the art of the blend. The fruit was aged 10 months, just 40% new French oak, therefore the fruit definitely stands out, which is exactly what you want in a Pinot. 3339 cases. ORIGIN: Russian River Valley, Sonoma.  ALCOHOL: 13.9%
