Wine Review: This pale ruby colored Pinot Noir from Gary Farrell opens with an inviting pomegranate and red raspberry bouquet with a hint of loam. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, bright, and savory. The flavor profile is stony mineral infused black raspberry and black plum blend with notes of oak and loam. We also detected hints of strawberry and cola. The finish is dry and its flavors, acidity, and medium tannins drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with a pork tenderloin. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Raspberries, red currant, and strawberry conserve dominate the nose with underlying tones of tobacco and forest floor. Hints of cola, summer jasmine, honeysuckle, and rose petals further the intrigue. The palate presents a striking brightness and purity, coupled with a generous mouthfeel that delivers flavors of fresh cherries, garden herbs, and sweet baking spice.
