The Times Weekly featured Gary Farrell 2019 Russian River Selection Chardonnay, noting that “this layered and complex Chardonnay is what the Russian River Valley is all about.” The writer says that the blend is produced from top vineyard sources, resulting in a wine that is terrific on its own and even better with food.
The piece continues by sharing background on Winemaker Theresa Heredia, who has been at the helm since 2012. “Not only has Heredia maintained Gary Farrell’s traditions; she has taken it to a new level.”
“The 2019 Chardonnay is a perfect example. Fresh and vivacious, this is a wine executed with style and elegance. Delicate floral notes and a voluptuous fruit bouquet delight the nose and palate. Thirst-quenching Meyer lemon mingle with tart apricot, star fruit, zesty lime and slight almond notes that wash into a long savory finish.”
