2010 MacMurray Ranch Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Reserve $35
If a wine can be summed up in a word, CLEAR is one that rises to the top for this Pinot. Despite the difficulties of the 2010 vintage, this example speaks in a voice possessed of surprising and undiluted clarity. Neither full-frontal nor overly-handed, there's an appealing truth to it. Smoke and spice come across in a tinge rather than a flourish, making for a leaner, welcome, rendition. Adds to the track record of this label. Memorable.
