Winemaker's Notes

The grapes were hand harvested, de-stemmed and cold soaked for approximately five days before primary fermentation began. MacMurray Ranch utilizes a mix of natural and Burgundian yeasts selected to complement the "terrior" of the Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. Upon completion of fermentation the wine was barreled down into French barriques for malolactic fermentation and maturation.

This is a classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, with concentrated fruit flavors of savory red and black fruits. Deep black cherry notes are complimented by subtle oak to add richness and depth to the finish.

This is an earthy wine with nuances of clove spice, and mushroom that will pair well with rack of lamb, grilled salmon and Shitake mushroom risotto.
