Had Gary Farrell a few times prior and thoroughly enjoy. Light color, blueberry and modest cherry on nose and palate. Like the fact that this is slightly lower alcohol level. Reminds me a bit of an Oregon PN because of the light color, tannins, and easy drinking.

Man, this was pretty: really hot out of the chute, needed an hour for it to blow off & open up with huge ripe Bing cherry, raspberry, baked rhubarb w/dusty earthy edges mingled w/pepper & spices. Fairly big sort of burly, akin to some Williamette Valley PNs - lots of concentration & vigor here, fruit focused but elegant / balanced. GF is a legend in Sonoma

Nice, easy, fruit poked out a little too much, but that’s my fault for drinking so early. Great for $30.

Don't let the price tag fool you, a very elegant Russian River Pinot.

With spicy kofta - great pair, liking Cali pinots more than I expected!
