2012 MacMurray Ranch Central Coast Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., $11.39. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The aromas and flavors of dark cherry, plum and black raspberry are framed by anise-laced oak. The tannins are modest, the mouthfeel is silky, and the finish is juicy, albeit a bit shallow and a noticeable tug of oak. A satisfactory rather than special wine for everyday consumption. Score: 87.
