Wine Review: This was the first time in a long time, that I had the chance to try some Gary Farrell wines. I was quite impressed with what I found. This light yellow Chard opens with a light apricot and lemon like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth, slightly creamy, with tasty lemon custard like flavors. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. This wine would pair well with swordfish or halibut with crab meat. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This 2006 Russian River Chardonnay is bursting with aromas of golden delicious apple, honeysuckle and pineapple. The wine exhibits rich, creamy flavors of lemon custard, butterscotch and hints of nutmeg in the mouth followed by citrus zest and notes of hazelnut. This generous offering will pair nicely with rich, creamy cheeses, salads with citrus fruits and sumptuous shellfish dishes.
