Not a very complex wine, the color was light and there was no finish to the wine. There was a hint of spice, but in general, this was my least favorite Gary Farrell I have ever had.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 growing season saw a cool spring followed by a cool summer punctuated with a heat wave in July, and a relatively late harvest. These grapes were hand-harvested in the early morning on September 29th, then, after the clusters were de-stemmed, the must received a 5-day cold soak prior to fermentation. The finished wine was matured in a mix of 44% new, 56% two-year-old French oak barrels for 12 months prior to bottling. The 2006 Bien Nacido Pinot Noir has pretty aromas of raspberries and black cherries with a hint of spiciness, and a fine, voluptuous texture and good acidity. Decant before serving and enjoy this very sophisticated, intriguing Pinot Noir over the next decade as the flavors continue to evolve. This wine pairs beautifully with duck confit and braised broccoli rabe.
