Macmurry Ranch Pinot Gris 2008
Editorial Reviews for Macmurry Ranch Pinot Gris
This is really perfumed on the nose with fat, ripe orchard fruits backed up with a touch of wood spice that gives this an aromatic roundness. Soft and rich on entry with powerful spiced apple flavors and hints of peach and orange that drive across the palate gaining spice and even a touch of herb on the mid-palate and onto the medium length finish. This is a pretty big wine and shows a touch of heat and some heaviness in the mouth but offers solid value. 87pts

Susan Doyle consistently makes one of the best pinot gris in California, blending fruit from Gallo's MacMurray Ranch Vineyard with other lots from the coast. In '05, the relatively cool, late September harvest created a pinot gris that's luxurious in texture, with ripe pear scents. The cold Pacific influence keeps the structure firm, just austere enough to contrast pan-roasted sand dabs.

Full of bright peach and rich honeydew melon flavor, MacMurray Pinot Gris tantalizes with delicate notes of citrus and spice as well, making it the ideal companion for a wide variety of foods.
One of the real stars here, and certainly under the radar as far as I can tell, is the 2005 Pinot Gris, a beautiful wine showing notes of nectarine, quince, and lemon butter in a beautifully texture, crisp, elegant, but fleshy style with no evidence of wood. This wine should be very food-friendly and drink well for 2-3 years.
Offers lovely jasmine aromas and lush yet crisp flavors of fig and spicy pear that finish on a crisp mineral note. Drink now.
