The Tasting Panel awarded Gary Farrell Russian River Selection Pinot Noir 2018 and Russian River Selection Chardonnay 2018 with 94 and 95 points, respectively, in the latest issue.

The Russian River Selection Pinot Noir is described as having a lovely ruby color “and a nose of bright cherry that carries over to the silky palate with sweet oak. A fresh and masterful wine with hints of cola and spice.”

The Russian River Selection Chardonnay offers an aromatic nose and golden hue. Additionally, the review adds that it is “velvety, rich, and toasty yet crisp, fresh, and elegant, with gorgeous structure and depth.”
