Central Coast Pinot Noir
90+ Points, International Wine Review, July 2015 (2013 Central Coast Pinot Noir)
The 2013 vintage on the Central Coast was outstanding, with neither excessive heat spikes nor cool stretches interfering with development. Fruit ripened evenly in these ideally moderate, dry conditions, building excellent ripeness and balance. The vintage has been compared to 2007, another year in which exceptionally high quality across vineyard blocks was noted. Wines from this vintage are showing expressive layers of ripe fruit flavors.
Indicative of its cool-climate region, our MacMurray Estate Vineyards Central Coast Pinot Noir opens with delicate aromas and flavors of cherry, raspberry and pomegranate, accented by hints of vanilla and toast and a silky mouthfeel. With time to breathe, this wine will display an excellent balance of flavor, acidity and texture.
