The winery was started by RRV legend Gary Farrell, and his prowess is clearly evident in today’s wine.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Beautiful, near translucent ruby from heart to edge.

Smell:

Full aromas of dark cherry and red currant overlap more earthy hints of cedar wood, dark baking spices, rose petals, and a touch of subtle herbs.

Taste:

Layered and complex in the best way possible, with sweet plum, cherry, and slight cranberry mingling with notes of aged sandalwood, toasty oak spice, sweet tobacco leaf, black peppercorn, and just a slight kick of espresso bean.

Finish:

After decanting, you’ll be met with an elegant, luxurious Pinot with a classic Russian River Valley flavor profile.

Pairing:

Grilled pork tenderloin with figs and rosemary.
