Macmurray Estate Vineyards Pinot Noir Central Coast 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Indicative of its cool-climate region, our 2012 Central Coast Pinot Noir opens with delicate aromas and flavors of cherry, raspberry and pomegranate, accented by hints of vanilla and toast and a silky mouthfeel. With time to breathe, this wine will display an excellent balance of flavor, acidity and texture. The grapes for this Pinot Noir came predominantly from our Olson Ranch Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands. The 2012 vintage was calm and cool along the Central Coast, allowing for an extended growing season. More time on the vine gave the grapes an opportunity to develop rich, concentrated flavors. Warmer weather moved in at the beginning of fall, creating the ideal conditions for harvest. Wines from this vintage are showing expressive layers of ripe fruit flavors.
