Mac Murray Russian River Valley Ranch 2011 Pinot Noir, $19.99-$33.99, 88 points, was a deep red grading bright red at the glass edge and broad clear wine ring.
Aromatic mélange of red fruit, earth, and leather were good.
Medium-bodied with good acidity, moderately supportive tannin, and rich flavors of red raspberry, red cherry, and strawberry made for a fruit forward, almost jammy PN; flavors of cola and red grape added depth to the flavor profile.
Warm spice activated by a slightly high 14.7% alcohol, and watermelon rind jazzed-up the fair finish.
