2012 Gary Farrell Pinot Noir Rochioli - Allen Vineyard
Russian River, Sonoma, California
WB Rating: 87

Alcohol by volume: 14.3%
Price at time of purchase: $70.00 (Winery)
Type: Pinot Noir / Burgundy
Principal varietal(s): Pinot Noir

Attractive dark musky fruit highlighted by cherry, plum, and floral notes along with a healthy dose of spice. But to my taste the balance is awry, with an almost shrill acid level and something of an attenuated flavor profile in general. Perhaps another year or two will calm this down, but for now it strikes me as a tasty but insanely pricey Pinot. - HK 2015-10-22
