Gary Farrell Russian River Selection Pinot Noir 2016

$39.99

94 Points WE                                             Gary Farrell is all about elegant Pinot Noirs with subtle aromatics and this wine superbly showcases the style. 94 Points Wine Enthusiast: "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."

Would represent itself well in a blind tasting. Well balanced and tasty, but pricey. Wouldn’t mind a little less oak. 13.9% alc.

Dusty, earthy nose and gorgeous fresh fruit on the palate. Beauty.

Enjoyed perhaps a bit earlier than I should've but that's par for the course with my eager drinking style. Classic RRV PN, a bit lighter than I'm used to. Fricken good with my BBQ chicken and zucchini. Tart red fruit cola sass for days with an herbaceous earthy edge...

Bon, sans plus. Pas très profond, et assez générique.

Delicious. Especially the second day. Augurs well for aging this high QPR Pinot. My 9.1 includes 0.3 over the super solid 8.8 I’d give it on taste alone, b/c of that QPR—I can drink 4 times of this yummy wine as I can afford to drink of a 9.4 that costs $100/bottle. Cherries, of course. Some structure I expect to grow in time. Bit of vanilla. Light-medium body with bigger flavors than one might expect given that fact. Pretty light red in the bowl. 14% alcohol is too dang high for Pinot noir. #CAWineProblems.
