2010 Gary Farrell Russian River Selection Russian River Valley Chardonnay

14.2% alc.,pH 3.22, TA 0.73, 2,752 cases, $35. Released August 1, 2012. Sourced from four Russian River Valley Vineyards. Aged 7 months in 40% new French oak barrels. · Light straw color and clear in the glass. Aromas of lemon curd, candle wax, bark and oak. A richer style with flavors of baked apple crisp, grilled citrus and toasty oak. The fruit has a very ripe, cooked quality typical of many Russian River Valley Chardonnays. A good backing of acidity saves the wine. Decent. Reviewed April 13, 2013
