This vintage brings together fruit from some amazing Russian River Valley vineyards with a number of sites new to the Gary Farrell cellar. They anchor the blend with the naturally balanced character of Westside Farms, while fruit from Rochioli Vineyard brings great concentration and structure. Among the new sources is Pellegrini's 65-acre Olivet Lane vineyard featuring the Wente clone, which adds nice citrus tones and excellent acidity. And just north of Rochioli- Allen, the Bacigalupi Goddard Ranch site brings intriguing floral tones and stone fruit character.

Enticing aromas of stonefruit, honeysuckle and lemongrass fill the glass, followed by a flavor profile ofexceptional intensity and vibrant acidity, balanced by a rich, creamy texture thatcomes from extended lees stirring during malolactic fermentation. This wine expresses pure, unadulterated Russian River Chardonnay intermingled withdistinctive cool-climate notes such as lemon oil, citrus peel, honey, lime andexcellent acidity.
