The fruit has faded a bit and given way to some secondary characteristics of game and chestnut. The fruit that remains is an interesting blend of cassis and raspberry. I popped this after a pretty tough ride and this certainly helped the recovery process. Outstanding. thedrunkencyclist.com
I did not realize until later, but I pulled this wine to drink after an Au Bon Climat Bien Nacido, not realizing the glaringly obvious connection (and I used to think I was bright). I bought this at the winery several years ago, and popped it at our favorite BYO. I am an unabashed fan of Gary Farrell, and I really enjoyed this wine. A bit hot, but otherwise fantastic.

I was craving a good bottle of Pinot and this did not disappoint. I picked this up in '07 from the winery and it is one of the best Pinots I have had in a while. The nose (although a bit hot) explodes with fruit and some secondary notes of eucalyptus. On the palate, wow. Plenty of acidity and great fruit. Wow (again). Outstanding plus. 92-94 Points. thedrunkencyclist.com
