MacMurray Ranch Pinot Noir Central Coast 2011

Jeffery Lindenmuth - April 2014

A food-friendly and budget-friendly rendition that offers impressive elegance. With pretty fruit aromas of raspberry and strawberry at its core, this wine also offers violet-tinged floral scents and hints of earth and cola. The fruit is lively and plump on the palate, displaying delicacy and a touch of spice on the supple finish.
