Gary Farrell Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County 2009
Alluring aromas of ripe cherry, raspberry and strawberry fruit. Incredible richness of this wine centers on succulent dark berry flavors, complemented by lavish, spicy oak elements. Deeply colored pinot noir has evolving layers of complexity, with a silky, sensual, lengthy finish.
Editorial Reviews for Gary Farrell Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County
Intensely perfumed and a bit unusual on the nose with a fresh leather base and gently sweet floral perfumes over a core of slightly meaty black cherry/blackberry fruit. There's a hint of smoke here and some underlying oak nuances, but they are very well integrated. This has fantastic depth of flavor with flavors that mimic the nose: rich dark berry fruits, black cherry skins, a hint of herb and some slightly creamy, lightly toasted and nutty almond ice cream, nutty oak notes in a rather aromatic package. There's an exotic pomegranate edge to the fruit in the mouth and violet pastilles on the back end. The finish shows more wood and wood spice, and the fruit shades a bit redder, but this is long and deep. Already delicious, there is notable potential for this to improve. Elegant complex and complete. 93pts
Really like this, soft and smooth
I wish you could really find this for around $21.00. In my experience it is more around the $40 range. Delicous and elegantly constructed Pinot Noir that is ready to drink now. Complex palate of cherries and herbs with slight hints of tobacco and cola. Well done and perfect at Thanksgiving! ;)
Very nice wine with cherry and raspberry flavors. Sweet fruit offset by firm acidity and a nice funky earthiness. Very nice, went well with blackened pork chop.
The wine was very deep and had flavor of blackberry and cherry
Had a glass of this wine while on vacation. Lots of fruit on the nose, but not overpowering. Earthy, dark cherry taste with a nice long finish.
