Mac Murray Ranch Pinot Gris Russian River Valley

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) This is a classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir with alluring red and black fruit flavors. Faint aromas of brown spices are interwoven with deep black cherry notes which are then balanced by subtle oak which adds complexity. The finish lingers with attractive subtle toasty undertones, fine acid, and excellent balance.
