Russian River Valley Reserve Pinot Noir

Bottle of Russian River Valley Reserve Pinot Noir from MacMurray Estate Vineyard

90 Points, The Wine Advocate, December 2013 (2012 Russion River Valley Reserve Pinot Noir)

A blend of the finest lots from our premier Pinot Noir vineyards in the Russian River Valley, our 2012 Russian River Valley Reserve Pinot Noir shows the depth and versatility of this extraordinary region. As a young wine, this Pinot Noir shows dark fruit flavors. With aeration, it will soften to reveal a plush, silky palate of pomegranates, cherries, boysenberry and lavender. Oak aging gave this wine hints of vanilla, baking spices, toast and pepper.

A significant portion of the grapes for this Pinot Noir came from Laguna Ranch Vineyard in the Russian River Valley, with the balance hailing from Del Rio Vineyard. The 2012 vintage in the Russian River Valley was phenomenal. A mild growing season with minimal rainfall provided the ideal conditions for even ripening. This outstanding vintage has produced wines of intense color, stunning flavor concentration and excellent balance.
