MacMurray Ranch Pinot Noir Estate Vineyards Russian River Valley

Wine Description

A classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, this wine shows rich flavors of red and black fruit. A portion was aged in new French oak barrels to highlight the delicate aromas and flavors of the Pinot Noir grape. The subtle oak complements the deep black cherry notes in our wine, adding richness and depth to the finish. This earthy wine has nuances of brown spice that make it a perfect foil for rack of lamb, grilled salmon and Shiitake mushroom risotto.

    The nose was of black cherries and spice. Taste was great! It got better as the night went on. I'm usually dissapointed with Pinot but this one brought an A game. Great, great wine!
