Gary Farrell, Bacigalupi Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017, Russian River Valley, California
Tasting Note: A lighter-styled pinot noir from Gary Farrell’s Bacigalupi Vineyard that is bright and mellow.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of black cherry, strawberry, rosehip, cranberry and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied pinot noir has medium-intensity, red-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and round, medium tannin.
The wine is relatively straightforward through to the medium-plus finish.
Good entry-level, vineyard-designated pinot from Gary Farrell.
Bottle Note: No. 0534.
