Coastal Home featured two wines from Gary Farrell Winery in its holiday gift guide, the Hallberg Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017 and Olivet Lane Chardonnay 2018.
Single vineyard Pinot Noir is produced from “a renowned vineyard that is dry-farmed and yields wines with deep color, beautiful structure and silky tannins. The 2017 Hallberg Vineyard Pinot Noir opens with lush aromas of dark cherries, summer strawberries and blackberry jam. Generous layers of black tea, freshly foraged mushrooms, dried tobacco and black olive provide balance to the decadent fruit profile. Intensely concentrated fruit works in seamless harmony with the savory secondary flavors, while finely tuned oak tannins provide texture and exceptional length.”
The Chardonnay is described as a classic expression of the Russian River Valley. “Planted in 1975, this vineyard sits on 65 acres of sloping benchland in the Santa Rosa Plain. The combination of low temperatures, regular fog intrusion and well-drained loam, clay soils are hallmarks producing its revered grapes. This 2018 Chardonnay is marked by juicy aromas of honeysuckle and citrus and a rich, creamy texture with balanced acidity.”
