2015 Gary Farrell Russian River Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir

12.9% alc., pH 3.20, TA 0.72, 215 cases, $28. Sourced from The Wat Vineyard of Dutton Ranch in the Green Valley of Russian River Valley. UCD 37 (Mt Eden) clone. Harvest Brix 21.1º. Whole cluster pressed using a gentle Champagne press program that minimizes extraction and maximizes desirable solids for fermentation. 70% stainless steel fermented, 30% fermented in neutral French oak barrels for two weeks. Entire blend remained on the primary lees for about two months. · Delicate coral color in the glass. Striking aromas of crushed strawberries, blood orange and rose petal. A gorgeous, lighter styled rosé that sports vibrant acidity lifting the fruit flavors of strawberry, melon and citrus. Softly textured, finishing refreshingly dry. Score: 91. Reviewed May 6, 2016
