Gary Farrell’s recently released 2015 Russian River Selection Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the sort of wines that put California on the map as world class producers. Both wines are elegant expressions of their varietals. Yes, they are priced a bit above what many wine drinkers might pay for their daily quaffing–but then again, these are not your everyday wines. In fact, you could say that these two Farrell are the sort of wines that set the standards the others are measured against. If you are looking to treat yourself–or someone else–Gary Farrell Russian River Chardonnay (35.00) and Gary Farrell Russian River Pinot Noir (45.00) are wines you won’t forget.
