This is a floral, juicy and full-bodied wine that feels lighter than its weight. A soft, supple texture wraps around rustic baked fruit and crisp, persistent acidity that provides substantial freshness. –Virginie Boone

Named a Top 100 Winery by Wine & Spirits in 2019 and has garnered well over 350 90+ scores in the past several years, Gary Farrell is legendary. With ridiculous access to preeminent vineyards (think Rochioli, Bacigalupi Hallberg, Ritchie, Gap’s Crown and Bien Nacido) for their Pinots and Chardonnays, they really pack the power with their small-lot single-vineyard Zinfandels. The historic Maffei Vineyard with gnarly, 90+ year old head-trained vines (a site that is also registered by the Historic Vineyard Society), is tended with love and devotion. The vines are meticulously managed with hand-leafing techniques for perfect light and dropping clusters for optimal vine balance. Gary Farrell is one of four wineries to have access to this fruit (others being Hartford and Seghesio). It’s a special place and it shows in the bottle.

Beautiful florals are all over this with dark, brambly fruit, rich plums and hints of black currants, and white pepper. There’s lovely acidity and bright notes of mulberries, cedar and sage with a lush profile of warm spices. Power, grace, velvety and palate-pleasing. It’s a Zin for the Zin lovers and those who need a reason to fall back in love with this classic California variety.

92pts! $25 smack-a-roos! Enjoy complimentary shipping on 4+ bottles. It’s the easiest $100 you can spend. To the races you go!

THE STORY TO KNOW

A 35-year pioneer in the Russian River Valley, Gary Farrell Winery crafts small-lot artisan wines that capture the balance and stylistic elegance of some of the finest vineyards in the region, including Rochioli, Allen, Bacigalupi, Hallberg, Ritchie, Durrell, Gap’s Crown and Bien Nacido. Their legacy, producing Burgundian-styled, varietally expressive, site-specific Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, is being expertly tended by winemaker Theresa Heredia, who works closely with growers to showcase the exceptional fruit from their vineyards. A specialist in cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Theresa came to Gary Farrell from Joseph Phelp’s Freestone Vineyards on the Sonoma Coast, where she achieved significant critical acclaim, including “Winemaker to Watch” honors from the San Francisco Chronicle. The Recipient of 352 90+ Scores 2013-2017, including Top 100 Wine and Top 100 Cellar Selections, numerous Editor’s Choice and Cellar Selection Designations, Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery was named "2015 Winery of the Year" by PinotReport, “2016 Winery of the Year” by PinotFile and a "Top 100 Winery 2019" by Wine & Spirits.
