“Crisp acidity buoys sharp red fruit in this delectable wine—a blend of multiple sites across the appellation. Medium build, it shows youthful tannins and oak that supports without intrusion, allowing the crunch of cranberry, strawberry and pomegranate to speak forcefully.”-WE

“A beautiful and elegant example of the grape variety, the 2015 Gary Farrell Russian River Valley Pinot Noir excels with fresh strawberries and minerality. The wine's brisk finish pairs it well with grilled salmon. (Tasted: November 17, 2017, San Francisco, CA)”-WW

gary farrell, russian river pinot noir 2015 - Don't believe the 94 rating for a second. This wine is thin, sharp tannins and a lack of fruit. I gave it two hours to open up, but it was just unpleasant. Just another overrated Pinot Noir. When will I learn to stop wasting money on California wines.
