Wine Review: The 2014 MacMurray "Estate Vineyards" Pinot Noir from the Russian River is brick red in color. It is medium bodied and opens with a rustic fruity red raspberry and plum bouquet. The bouquet also includes some light oak and a touch of eucalyptus. Decanting this Pinot Noir for about an hour allowed it to balance out its fruitiness and dusty tannins which appeared on the palate. The fruit flavors included ripe red raspberries, black cherries and a hint of clove. Its nice extended dry finish included black licorice and black pepper that appeared at the end. I would pair this Pinot Noir with tortellini in a spinach cream sauce. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: Our MacMurray Estate Vineyards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir opens with aromas of lavender and boysenberry, giving way to flavors of dark cherry, pomegranate and vanilla. This luscious wine has a silky mouthfeel, framed by subtle hints of oak from barrel aging.
