Rave Review: 2017 Gary Farrell Russian River Selection Pinot Noir

July 22, 2020

The Nittany Epicurean recently reviewed the 2017 Gary Farrell Russian River Selection Pinot Noir and awarded the wine the below rave review! 

“The wine showed a light ruby color. Cherry, cranberry, raspberry, vanilla, vineyard dust and oak all arrived on a nose that delivered you right to a vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Cherry, cranberry, raspberry, rhubarb, dusty leather and oak followed on the palate where the red berry fruit was the star of the show. The wine was light-bodied and exhibited good length along with soft tannins. This wine would be an ideal pair for an array of charcuterie or grilled salmon.”
