  • Gary Farrell Chardonnay Russian River Selection 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with attractive aromas of French oak and subtle green apple and toasted nut notes. Soft and open on entry with early flavors of raw almonds and creamy accent the the sweet green apple and lightly green plummy flavors on the palate. This is very supple and fairly rich though with enough acid to keep things lively and focused in... Read More

  • It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some sort of a plan not being a requirement for those in this business. But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy.  This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel. I say surprisingly becaus... Read More

  • Gary Farrell Zinfandel Bradford Mountain 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Darker on the nose than the Sonoma bottling with carob, meat, mint, and eucalyptus spice accenting the cool,earthy and powerful nose. This is not fruit driven. Much lighter on the palate than the nose would lead one to believe,. Dark, and muscular like a ballet dancer, this reveals lovely depth, the flavors like the nose run to the earthy, savor...

  • Gary Farrell Wines Inc. Zinfandel Sonoma County 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very pretty on the nose, with lots of cool fruit, plenty of oak as well but it's well balanced allowing the floral, spicy, crushed black raspberry and wild plum fruit to show very clearly. Very clean and taut on the palate, with no baby fat, in a clear nervous style. This is and fairly large scaled but elegant and tense with mouth watering acids... Read More

  •  We had a plan, get in early, get out early. It seems like a lot of people had the get in early plan. In years past we would show up around 11:15, park close and hit the tent before the crowd built. Well not this year. The front parking lot filled up as we approached so we parked across the road and hoofed it in. The place was a zoo from the mom... Read More

  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...

  • Gary Farrell Russian River Chardonnay 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Smokey and dry on the nose with a rather transparent quality that allow the wood to come through quite distinctly but its very fine wood, not sweet and toasty barrel, paired with gentle floral, butter and spice accents. Relatively rich on entry, this packs superb acids and opens with very ripe yet very fresh apple and almost honeydew melony frui... Read More

  • I am pretty much prejudiced towards red wines.  However, that does not mean that I drink them exclusively.  I do drink quite a bit of white wine.  Probably, because, like most Americans my age, we are encouraged to bias out protein input away from red meats.  The good news for me is that I do love seafood and chicken.  So, that is really not a s...

  • Help!Ok, ok...there's no crisis here in Dallas. However, I do have quandary. I just haven't developed an affinity for varietal New World pinot noir and I'm wondering what I'm missing. I'm looking for suggestions from you Snoothers.Keep in mind that I live in the Great (or Not So Great) State of Texas, where it's considerably more difficult to ac... Read More
