MacMurray Magic

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.
