Grand Crew: Upcoming New Releases

May 2020

Membership in Grand Crew offers first and often exclusive access to our new release single vineyard wines at each release in February, May and September. 

Gary Farrell Family of Wines

We are extremely excited to reveal our new Single Vineyard Wine label, available exclusively to our Grand Crew Members! Our traditional parchment label has been the standard bearer for Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery for over two decades. Our new blue label is featured on Theresa Heredia’s 5th full vintage as winemaker for Gary Farrell and as our wine style continues to evolve under her watchful eye, we look to the future and choose to further define these beautiful single vineyard wines. We are incredibly proud to add this distinct blue label alongside our parchment Russian River Selection, grey Rose, and black Inspiration Series labels.

Aromas of fresh apricots, pears, and apple blossoms introduce this Chardonnay from the famed Bacigalupi vineyard.  Hints of honeysuckle and jasmine lift gracefully from the glass. Layers of vanilla and pie crust add weight, while floral and citrus elements provide a refreshing lift through the mid palate and onto the finish.

 

2017 Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay, Russian River Valley

Bright notes of citrus zest and green apples introduce this beautiful offering from the Ritchie Vineyard. Hints of baked pear tart and roasted hazelnuts add an alluring element of depth and intrigue. The palate is exceptionally refreshing upon entry with concentrated flavors of white peaches, apricots, and figs. Opulent, yet tightly knit, this wine provides an amazing balance of fruit driven flavors and lively acidity that is a hallmark of this classic vineyard site.

 

2017 Rochioli-Allen Vineyards Chardonnay, Russian River Valley

Flecks of gold reflect brilliantly through an inviting straw hue as the 2017 Rochioli-Allen Chardonnay is poured into the glass. Aromas of apple blossoms and chaparral clematis entice the senses upon first swirl. Elements of dried stone fruits coupled with citrus zest provide endless layers of complexity and verve. Focused minerality and crystalline acidity complete the package, delivering a stunning concentration of silky texture and balanced flavors.

 

2017 Westside Farms Chardonnay, Russian River Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector

Exclusive Add On: Connoisseur

In this vintage from Westside Farms aromas of citrus zest and kaffir lime leaf are interwoven with subtle hints of pie dough and lightly toasted vanilla. The palate unfolds with generous layers of lemon oil, tart green apple, and flavors of brioche, vanilla wafer, and grilled pineapple. The wine’s intensity builds by the minute, as precise minerality, coupled with an exceptionally silky mouthfeel, guides the experience from start to finish.

 

2017 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir, Santa Maria Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector & Connoisseur

Exotic aromas of crushed ginger, cardamom, and toasted white pepper lift gracefully from the glass. Subtle hints of eucalyptus, mint, and black tea are woven throughout the bouquet. The mouthfeel is delicate and finessed, with precise flavors of dried strawberries and pomegranate that are balanced with an earthy background of oyster mushrooms. Silky wood tannins from a specially curated selection of luxurious French oak perfectly frame and provide elegant support to this ethereal offering from the Bien Nacido vineyard.

 

2017 Hallberg Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector, Connoisseur & Enthusiast

The 2017 Hallberg Vineyard Pinot Noir opens with lush aromas of dark cherries, summer strawberries, and blackberry jam. Generous layers of black tea, freshly foraged mushrooms, dried tobacco, and black olive provide balance to the decadent fruit profile. Intensely concentrated fruit works in seamless harmony with the savory secondary flavors, while finely tuned oak tannins provide texture and exceptional length.

 

2017 Martaella Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector & Connoisseur

Juicy, succulent, fresh red and blue fruit aromas reminiscent of black raspberry, blueberry and tart huckleberry burst from the glass, balanced by rich, floral and spicy aromas of philo dough, rose petal, bay leaf and star anise. Tart, zesty, complex flavors of freshly baked wildberry tart, Satsuma, rose water and sandalwood unfold on the palate, building up to a full, silky, mouth-coating texture that lingers with tangy acidity, exotic spices and firm tannins.

 

2017 Rochioli Allen Vineyards Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector

Exclusive Add On: Connoisseur

Tart red cherry, tangerine zest and rose petal aromas lead off the aromatic profile, followed by savory notes of dried bay leaves, graphite and fennel. Tart, zesty flavors of freshly picked raspberries, blood orange, pomegranate seed and cocktail bitters comingle beautifully on the palate. This is a polished, refined wine for those who truly appreciate the subtleties of great Pinot Noir. The texture is velvety, with mouth-coating, fine-grained tannins; the finish is long and tangy with vibrant acidity and zesty exotic spices.
