MacMurray Russian River Valley 2012 Pinot Noir, $15.99-$24.99, 91 points, appeared, dare I say, a deep beautiful burgundy red with a clear rim at the leggy glass wall.
A toasty boysenberry/blackberry jam nose was quite good.
The medium-plus body carried good acidity with mildly trailing tannins.
Cola, mint, coffee notes, and an amazing array of jammy red and black fruits were a bit heavy, but delicious.
Finished long on a black cherry liqueur with eucalyptus, licorice, a touch of the 14.2% alcohol, and an easy though accelerating spiciness.
