Gary Farrell Russian River Selection Pinot Noir 2017 Review

This is how it’s done! This wine is such a great example of why Russian River Pinot Noir fans lose their minds sipping bottles like this one. The balance is impeccable. The fruit is elegant, yet powerful, filling your palate and brain with broad, harmonious aromas of cherries and cinnamon, with a whiff of white pepper and autumn leaves. And all those descriptors I just mentioned are cool and all, but what really matters is how this wine makes you feel. It's a goddamn pleasure to drink.
