Grand Crew: Upcoming New Releases

September 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.

 

2018 Durell Vineyard Chardonnay, Sonoma Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector

Exclusive Add On: Connoisseur

This vintage is a classic expression of Durell Old Wente Chardonnay. The vines struggle in the rocky soils, yielding tiny, flavor-packed clusters. The resulting wine is a stunning expression of place, boasting aromas of tart apricot, white nectarine and honeysuckle, with hints of delicate, toasty oak adding layers of complexity. The citrusy, mineral-laden palate explodes with flavors of succulent golden peach, Meyer lemon, lime zest and toasted hazelnuts. The perfect balance between fresh and velvety, with laser-focused acidity, powerful structure and an exceptionally long finish.

 

2018 La Rinconada Vineyard Chardonnay, Sta. Rita Hills

Winemakers Selection: Collector, Connoisseur & Enthusiast

The maritime influence is apparent in the expressive aromas that open with flint and brioche, followed by white peach, honeysuckle, lime peel, fennel and quince. The resulting wine is a beautiful expression of place, exhibiting flavors of roasted lemon, nectarine and wildflower honey, with hints of lightly toasted oak adding layers of richness and complexity. The creamy, yet mineral-laden palate is balanced by pinpoint acidity, and accentuated by an oily viscosity that lingers on the palate long after the wine is gone.

 

2017 Bacigalupi Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector & Connoisseur

Vibrant aromas of summer strawberries, wild raspberries, and ripe cherries introduce this offering from the famed Bacigalupi vineyard. The purity of fruit is balanced with layers of fresh mushrooms, rose petals, violets, and black tea. The palate is soft and inviting, presenting effortless finesse that is typical of Pinot Noir from this special vineyard site.

 

2017 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir, Petaluma Gap

Winemakers Selection: Collector & Connoisseur

Dark and brooding, with elements of rustic, concentrated fruit and a savory backbone, this complex offering is a classic expression of wines from the Petaluma Gap. Black raspberry, dried cherries, and hints of blackberry jam work in concert with layers of tobacco leaf, saddle leather, and truffles. The mouthfeel is at once lush and expansive with ample tannic structure persistent throughout the mid-palate, while generous natural acidity provides a refreshing lift on the finish.

 

2017 McDonald Mountain Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector, Connoisseur & Enthusiast

Graceful, and light on its feet, this elegant wine delivers a splendid array of fresh fruit components that are complimented with savory characters and earth tones. The fruit profile is dominated by generous portions of pomegranate, bright strawberry, and cranberry. There are elements of licorice, cloves, and tobacco leaf in the background that add an element of intrigue and depth. Exceptionally clean and acid focused, the flavors meld together in a precise, focused package that delivers a lasting impression upon the senses.

 

2017 Rochioli Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

Exclusive Add On: Collector, Connoisseur & Enthusiast

This stunning offering from the famed Rochioli Vineyard opens with inviting aromas of sweet cedar, cherry cola, strawberry and wild mushroom. Luscious flavors of pomegranate and dried rose petals fill the glass and are complemented with an essence of cinnamon. Silky soft tannins and mouthwatering acidity provide a complex mouthfeel and long sultry finish. This exceptional wine shows long term cellar potential.

 

2017 Terra De Promissio Vineyard Pinot Noir, Petaluma Gap

Winemakers Selection: Collector

Exclusive Add On: Connoisseur

This is a wonderfully balanced wine that exudes aromas of strawberry, rhubarb, rose hip, thyme and coriander. A precise core of tart acidity sets the stage for a beautiful and elegant expression of bright, earthy and savory flavors, ranging from blood orange, beet root and tamarind to sour cherry chutney, pomegranate seed and roasted kukicha twig tea. The complex, earthy palate unfolds continuously, with layers of minerality and mouthwatering acidity. The finish is long and velvety, boasting exquisite fine-grained tannins. This is a gorgeous expression of the cool Petaluma Wind Gap.

 

2017 Grist Vineyard Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley

Winemakers Selection: Collector & Connoisseur

This beautiful terroir-driven wine boasts vibrant, zesty aromas of blood orange, huckleberry, white pepper and lavender; savory undertones of Italian green olives and rosemary, with just a hint of incense. Fresh and explosive on the palate, with raspberry, red currant, boysenberry, and sweet pipe tobacco on the finish. Youthful, plush tannins coat the palate while the incredibly mouthwatering tart acidity balances the structure perfectly, creating a juicy and impeccably balanced wine.
