Winemaker Teresa Heredia, who has been the winemaker for about two vintages at Gary Farrell Vineyards, is producing some excellent wines. Also, the winery has made some serious investments into production quality. The wines are so much better than they were five years ago.
2011 VIntage Chardonnay Russian River Valley:
91 Points - Wine ENthusiast , Editor's Choice
“This Chardonnay is extremely close in
style and complexity to Gary Farrell’s best
single-vineyard bottlings, for a lower price.
The wine is mouthwatering in acidity, with
rich tropical fruit.”
90 Points - California Grapevine
"Very highly recommended"
“Lemony, stone fruit and green apple
aroma with light notes of mineral and
toasty oak; medium-full body; crisp,
lemony, green apple flavors with silky
mouthfeel; lingering aftertaste”.
Four Stars - Restaurant Wine Reviews, "Winery To Watch"
“…supple and ripely flavored; a wine with firm acidity, and a long
finish, tasting of pineapple, peach, roasted nut, caramel, and spicy
oak. Very fine value.”
