2012 MacMurray Vineyards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $28 ($20 at some retailers). · Moderately dark ruby hue in the glass. The rather shy and dull nose offers hints of cherry and oak. A gentle, shallow wine that is pleasant but not exciting, featuring a discreet weighted core of cherry fruit with a touch of floral and oak accents and well-endowed backing tannins. Score: 86.
