2007 Gary Farrell Hallberg Vineyard Dijon Clones Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., pH 3.44, 303 cases, $60. Released in February 2010. 52% clone 777, 43% clone 667 and 4% Pommard. · Deep, dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Similar aroma profile to the Hallberg bottling with high notes of forest floor and woodshed, but with redder berry scents. More fruit charm and crisper on the palate, less earthy and showing less grilled fruit flavors. Noticeable ripe tannins, but very smooth in the mouth. Very good. Reviewed July 15, 2010
