Macmurray Estate Vineyards Pinot Noir Reserve Russian River Valley 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

The third in a string of outstanding vintages in the Russian River Valley, 2014 got off to an early start with a short bloom season and desirable fruit set. The absence of significant weather events meant grapes ripened evenly in a mild growing season that remained temperate for its duration apart from cooler, occasionally damp weather in September, which allowed flavors to catch up in what was still a historically early harvest. Throughout the season, the Valley’s hallmark fog intrusion allowed grapes in our estate vineyards to retain vibrancy and bright flavors. 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.

Fresh ripe cherries, star anise, clove and blueberries on the nose. Clean and fresh on the palate, round and full with bright cherry fruit, a bit of heat and a finish of licorice and soft earth.
