2012 Mac Murray Ranch Pinot Nior

Mac-Murray-Ranch-Pinot-NiorThe Russian River Valley is one of California’s most celebrated sources of world-class Pinot Noir. The maritime influence of this cool-climate region brings fog through the river valley to blanket the vineyards each day. Warm days and cool nights encourage distinct varietal characteristics to develop in the Pinot Noir grapes here.

From the Wine Maker – “From Sonoma’s Russian River Valley wine region, this Pinot Noir has elegant varietal fruit character, with rich aromas and flavors of raspberry, cherry, red currant and boysenberries. Hints of lavender and mushroom are supported by a subtle oak influence. This wine will evolve into a silky, smooth wine with time in the bottle.”

This earthy wine has nuances of brown spice that make it a perfect foil for rack of lamb, grilled salmon and Shiitake mushroom risotto.

2012 Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon

Handpicked at the peak of flavor development, this 2011 Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon was barrel aged in new American oak and 1-2 year old French oak for 16 months. All of the grapes from this Red Hill mountains vineyard have been organically grown and sustainably farmed for the past 10 years.

From the Wine Maker – “Rich, aromatic dark fruits and baking spices delight the nose, yielding fresh plum and blackberry fruit, violet, dried fig, vanilla bean and Chinese Five-Spice. The wine is juicy with the plum and blackberry flavors prominent, layered with smoky and sappy maple wood, roasted almonds and hazelnuts, finishing long with fine, firm tannins.”

Pairs well with cornish game hens, duck or turkey prepared in rich, hearty or heavy sauces or hard cheeses like Parmigiano or Romano and firm cheeses like Cheddar.
