GARY FARRELL HALLBERG VINEYARD PINOT NOIR 2016
Fruit for this wine comes from the Hallberg Vineyard, which is located in the sub-appellation Green Valley of the Russian River Valley. Harvested cool, the fruit was hand-sorted, 80 percent of it de-stemmed, put in open-top fermenters, and the remaining 20 percent was added as whole clusters later. Approximately 40 percent of the oak used in aging the wine was new. With a deeper velvet red hue, this wine is more extract-driven than the Russian River Selection Pinot Noir. There are darker and fruitier aromas with a noticeable barrel influence, but it's the floral and fruity character that stands out. Cherries, raspberries, and rhubarb are combined with things similar to sandalwood and juniper. A berry fruit core and spice in the background enhance the wine's weight. This wine is refreshing on the finish, with its tannins and acidity working well together.

There is a whiff of earthy fruit flavors as well as cherries cooked in balsamic reduction in this wine's nose.
