Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Gary Farrell was one of our favorites from the single vineyard portfolio. It opens with a fragrant black plum and bramble berry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very smooth all the way through. The flavor profile is a subtle black plum with notes of oak and gentle earthy minerality. We also detected hints of oolong tea and spice. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins drift away nicely. The Panel thought this Pinot would go well with Coq au vin and perhaps a cigar. Enjoy – KWGTP
