Grand Crew: Upcoming New Releases

May 2021

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.

 

2018 Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay

Russian River Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector, Connoisseur & Enthusiast

The 2018 Bacigalupi Chardonnay delivers an effortlessly pure expression of the varietal and the iconic vineyard where it is grown. Soft and elegant upon first impression, wild scatterings of chamomile flowers and climbing jasmine infuse the air upon first swirl. Distinctive notes of McIntosh apples, Ceylon cinnamon sticks, and a subtle undertone of beeswax transport you to a summer’s day amongst the old vines. Zesty citrus and a touch of raw honey imparts a graceful silkiness upon the palate from beginning to end.

 

2018 Martaella Vineyard Chardonnay

Russian River Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector

The 2018 Martaella Vineyard Chardonnay opens with wafting scents of citrus flowers and airy perfume introduce our first Chardonnay offering from this beautiful Vineyard. White peaches, golden nectarines, and dried apricots are married with an array of freshly baked biscuits and honeycomb. Tangerine oils and Meyer lemon zest caress the palate while an undercurrent of crushed seashells lend weight and mystique to this delicious wine.

 

2018 Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay

Russian River Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector, Connoisseur & Enthusiast

The 2018 Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay is a vibrant display of fruit concentration and finesse that is a hallmark of this historic Sonoma County site. Clean citrus aromas of lemon grass and zesty lime exude from the glass as the wine is poured. Green apples, steeped cardamom pods, flint, and preserved lemons deliver exquisite intricacy. The mouthfeel is refreshing, bright, and energetic, wrapped in a suggestive bow of luxurious French oak.

 

2018 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir

Santa Maria Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector & Connoisseur

The 2018 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir delivers an abundance of wild summer raspberries, fresh cherries, strawberries, and pomegranate. Plenty of savory spices and crushed flowers compliment the bright red fruit profile. Foraged truffle mushrooms, tea leaves, mint, eucalyptus, and sandalwood lend mystery and intrigue. The palate is refreshingly elegant, and strikes a perfect balance of earthy complexity and concentrated fruit.

 

2018 Martaella Vineyard Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector, Connoisseur & Enthusiast

The 2018 Martaella Vineyard Pinot Noir offers up a vibrant and complex bouquet of boysenberry, plum, pomegranate, coriander and a hint of cedar spice, this wine is full-bodied and incisive, with a perfect balance of concentrated fruit, tangy acidity, and a long, mouth-coating finish, with firm, age worthy tannins. This pinot noir is a fantastic example of both vintage and site that together express a tremendous amount of verve and unique fruit intensity. Although impressive now, it really starts to open up with a few hours of air, so enjoy now but be sure to save one for few more years.

 

2018 Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir

Sta. Rita Hills

Winemakers Selection: Collector, Connoisseur & Enthusiast

The 2018 Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir opens with a deep, savory and complex bouquet of cassis, fennel, pomegranate, blood orange and a hint of bourbon-soaked barrel, this wine focused, vibrant and packed with concentrated red & blue fruit flavors. This is a medium-full bodied Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir, with a lively framework of acidity, youthful tannins and succulent fruit, reminiscent of raspberry, loganberry, red plum and deliciously tangy tamarind. It’s so fresh, juicy and delicious, you’ll be tempted to drink it all now, but the firm tannins and crisp acidity make this an age worthy wine.
