2013 MacMurray Central Coast Pinot Noir
March 17, 2017 - Norman Bentley
The legacy of the great actor Fred MacMurray is embodied in his love for the MacMurray Estate Ranch and its surrounding vineyards, which recalls a memorable actor with a passion for his craft, as well as his natural surroundings. Today MacMurray wines represent quality for a reasonable price. The 2013 Central Coast Pinot Noir is an excellent example of that reputation.
We shared a bottle of the MacMurray Pinot Noir the other night at our cousin's home where it was paired with home-made Jambalaya. The wine rose to the occasion, and helped make the meal most delightful. The color is deep red with an aroma of cherries and a faint trace of violets. The flavors abound with cherry and plum being the most prominent. The wine is vibrant and yet smooth at the same time, and has a rich and mellow finish. Norm's score is 88.
I liked it with the Jambalaya, and thought it would also pair well with prime rib, or perhaps cedar-planked salmon from the grill. In today's world, a decent Pinot Noir for less than twenty is a real find.
