Gary Farrell 2003 Rochioli-Allen Vineyard Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)

You have to wonder if the winemaker, who sold to Allied-Domecq in 2004, decided to make his Pinots fruitier to appeal to changing consumers tastes. Maybe it was the very hot vintage. In any case, this is more in keeping with California's superripe Pinots than Farrell's formerly tight, acidic ones, with excellent results. It's deliciously drinkable, although perhaps not so ageable.
