The 2009 Gary Farrell Chardonnay Russian River Selection is a wine of delicious contrasts. The nose is friendly and giving with aromas of baked, spiced apple, lemon curd, cinnamon, vanilla and notes of yeast. The palate is medium-plus in body with notable acidity that easily balances the weight. The lively flavors of yellow apple, baking spice, wood, toffee and creme brulée are long-lasting. This is a classic Russian River Valley Chardonnay that is both fresh and flavorful. Drink now through 2014. Highly Recommended.
