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

A pretty wine, crisp and fruity, with flavors of sour pineapple cough drop, Meyer lemon, lime, flowers and minerals. Finishes dry and ultraclean. Great with a juicy cheeseburger, believe it or not.

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.

A very good, fairly priced Pinot Gris, MacMurray Ranch's 2007 is primarily tank-fermented with a small quantity aged in neutral wood. Orange, mango, and white peach notes are present in this fresh medium-bodied, fruit-driven white. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.

MacMurray Ranch Sonoma Coast Pinot Gris possesses an expressive fruit-forward character, exhibiting rich aromas of fig, white peach, and pear. The bright aromas and complex varietal characters of citrus and elements of spice add both weight and interest to the wine. The flavors of peach, spicy pear and citrus meld together in a rich core, resulting in a round mouth feel which complement its crisp, clean finish.
