Gary Farrell 2008 Pinot Noir – Santa Maria, Bien Nacido Vineyard: Fresh & Pinot

The view from the Gary Farrell tasting room is incredible and you can really take in the breadth of Sonoma from there.  This Pinot takes me back to that visit and reminds me of the wonderful (non-earthy) pinots we had in the Russian River valley.  I think this one is best described with a fruit analogy – it’s like a pomegranate meets a grape…  This wine has the initial fresh tartness of the pomegranate and, well, it’s a wine, so you have to imagine a grape in there somewhere too.  This pinot will go well with just about any food or just by itself too.
