Murphy Goode Homefront Red 2011
Bright citrus and lush tropical fruit aromas. Flavors of white peach and honeydew. What’s not to love about this versatile Sauvignon Blanc, with its hint of Semillon for floral notes and its touch of oak for that smoky, intriguing “fume” personality. From poolside aperitifs to your best friend’s wedding, from barbecued oysters on the beach to the BYOB Thai place around the corner, this go-to wine from California’s North Coast rises to every single occasion. Don’t leave home—or stay home—without it.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Editorial Reviews for Murphy Goode Homefront Red
A bit tight on the nose though with underlying jammy fruit and some perfumy oak top notes. Sweet and plump on entry with nice blackberry fruit on the palate. This is supple, round and fresh with enough acid to help highlight some of the red fruit, cranberry notes on the midpalatal. there’s some coconutty oak on the palate along with a little lead pencil that leads to the simple, fruity finish. Pretty good in the style with lots of plummy and spicy berry fruit on the palate, soft tannins, and enough acid to keep the finish clean. 83pts

Murphy Goode Fume is made of mainly Sauvignon Blanc with a touch of Semillon. It was predominately fermented in stainless steel to retain the expression of bright citrus and tropical fruit aromatics while the balance was barrel fermented in French and American oak to increase the mouthfeel and develop lush flavors of white peach and honeydew melon.
The 2010 Fume was predominately fermented in stainless steel to retain the expression of bright citrus and tropical fruit aromatics while the balance was barrel fermented in French and American oak to increase the mouthfeel and develop lush flavors of white peach and honeydew melon. The Semillon adds wonderful expressions of floral notes and adds nice texture.
A blend of Syrah, Merlot, Petit Sirah, and Zinfandel. This is a wine that is food friendly and fruit forward. It's chock full of flavors of black cherry and raspberry, vanilla and toast, and has a nice long finish that invites another glass.
