Wine of the Day

2009 Gary Farrell Chardonnay Russian River Selection

The Gary Farrell Winery is located on a hilltop in the Russian River Valley. The views from its tasting room are spectacular. Having a glass of this 2009 Russian River Valley Chardonnay in hand will make your visit even better.

Gary Farrell Winery lies above the fog in the wooded hills of the Russian River Valley


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.
