Food Pairings for Macmurray Ranch Pinot Noir Winemaker S Block
Editorial Reviews for Macmurray Ranch Pinot Noir Winemaker S Block
Lots of cola on the nose with cedary oak, crushed raspberries, ash, vanilla and lilac aromas. Medium-bodied and elegant on entry with a rich but soft texture. There’s a bit of noticeable tannin here, which makes the entry a bit halting, but it regains its focus on the mid-palate, offering up dark, chocolate and root beer-framed berry fruit. The tannins show up again on the finish, which has spice toasty oak but is cut short by the powdery tannins. 87pts
somewhat interesting notes of berries and vanilla, but overall kind of ho-hum.
A really good Riesling for under $10. Perhaps a little sweet though not objectionable.
Another $20+ Pinot that's worth the money. Had it at Ciatti's and loved it. Pairs superbly with Caprese Salad.
Wow - $18 bucks for a glass of this at the W on Lexington ave. Note to self, check Snooth prior ordering. Sweet and young - agree with the 3 glass rating.
Allow me to preface this review by stating that I am not a wine aficionado and began drinking reds for my heart. I've only been drinking reds for less than a year but I do like a good Pinot Noir. This is the first Pinot I've felt compelled to review as it's one of the tastiest I've tried. Beautiful aroma and taste. We'll definitely be purchasing this again.
External Reviews for Macmurray Ranch Pinot Noir Winemaker S Block
Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Nicely stated red cherry fruit with touches of black cherries and a bright, energetic, not quite developed side makes the early going in this somewhat supple, slightly flesh, never soft bottling. Young in its fruit with good volume to its cherryish flavors and plenty of depth to hold off somewhat coarse tannins at this writing, the wine seems bound to improve for three to six years and is more likely to fit in with savory beef dishes than with something on the more refined side.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

Ripened to softness, like a fraise de bois compote, this is concentrated but gentle, with a roundness that lasts. It continues to improve with air, suited to a few years of age, or to rare roast beef.
From the former ranch of Hollywood star Fred MacMurray comes this lovely Pinot Noir, showing terrific intensity with plush, mouthcoating red-berry fruit ripeness. A very good value in California Pinot Noir.
The largest cuvee by far with 42,000 cases made, this will be the one most seen on shelves. It features plenty of sweet-seeming upfront toast and caramel, gradually showing crisper, cherry-driven flavors, until it ends on a citrusy note.
Doyle blended this fresh and juicy pinot noir from several vineyards, including Olson Ranch in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Deftly balanced, therersquo;s a floral sensation that lasts in this wine, lifting its sweet strawberry fruit. A satisfying pinot to serve with roast chicken.
The other Pinots include the tart, sweet and sour cherry, pomegranate, mossy, austere 2008 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast. Prices are very fair, and these Pinots should be drunk in their first 3ndash;4 years of life.
90 points Wine Enthusiast: ''Currently hard and tart in acids and tannins, but loaded with sweet, ripe fruit, this Pinot is silky enough to drink now, which most consumers probably will. But if you give it until sometime in 2010, the cherries, cola, sandal
A Pinot with classic aromas from the cool micro-climates of the Central Coast, this wine showcases flavors of red cherry, cola, and briar complemented by nuances of sweet vanilla and oak.
