2012 "Charlotte's Home" Sauvignon Blanc - $15.99 $11.99:  Light, crisp and highly aromatic, this wine is a blend of warmer climate Alexander Valley fruit to give it ripe peach, tangerine and pineapple character, and ocean cooled Russian River Valley fruit for a citrusy, lemon grass and slightly herbaceous quality. Together, the two valleys make a classic Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc that is fresh, lively and delicious!
 
2012 Chardonnay, Sonoma County - $13.99 $11.99:  Here's an amazing price on a lovely Chardonnay! It starts with bright lemon and apple aromas mingling with hints of toasty barrel complexity. The palate yields pear and pineapple flavors with spice and refreshing acidity. The trick was to barrel ferment 60% of this wine, aging that portion in barrel for six months to bring out a touch of brown spice and vanilla, while the remainder is cold fermented to maximize a fresh fruit-forward character. That first taste will have you coming back for another glass!
 
2011 "Knotty Vines" Zinfandel, Northern Sonoma - $19.99 $18.99:  Fresh, bright berry fruit from Rodney's heritage Russian River vineyard combined with the ripe peppery jamminess from Alexander Valley fruit make for wonderful diversity of flavor showcasing the best that Zinfandel can offer in one wine. This medium bodied, rich wine was oak aged for 16 months to enhance the inherent spicy qualities.
 
2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County - $18.99 $16.99:  A deep, saturated color leads to lifted aromas of blackberry, cocoa and herby black-currant, which is followed by a rich, layered mouthfeel, loaded with juicy black cherry, cedar, and crème de cassis. This wine is also elegantly structured with fresh acidity and ripe, mature tannins. Enjoy this vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon now and over the next several years.


 2011 "Alexander Valley" Cabernet Sauvignon - $22.99 $20.99:  The Alexander Valley signature style is evident in this delicious Cabernet. Bold fruit aromas and flavors centered on red plum, dried herb and blackberry, with a rich, mouth filling texture and soft tannins. Oak aged for just over 17 months rounds off the edges, making for a wonderful Cabernet experience!

Wonderful Wines from Sonoma

 

Rolling hills. Treasured traditions. Breathtaking vineyards. Welcome to...

 

MacMurray Ranch Logo  

 

 MacMurray Ranch

Healdsburg, CA

 

At MacMurray Ranch, the wines reflect a passion for the special places that produces extraordinary grapes.

 

Beginning with the home vineyard in the heart of the Russian River Valley, they also select grapes from other premier vineyards in the Russian River Valley and the Central Coast to craft exquisite Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.

 

Their roots in the Russian River Valley run deep. In fact, the majestic ranch has been a homestead since the 1850s.

 

But their modern history began when actor Fred MacMurray bought the ranch in 1941 and began raising cattle here. Today, Fred's daughter, Kate MacMurray, is intimately involved with MacMurray Ranch, helping to share the incredible story of these world-class wines.

 

Please plan to join us this Saturday afternoon as we taste through this exquisite lineup:


2012 "Russian River Valley" Pinot Gris - $17.99:  This elegant wine has an expressive fruit-forward character, exhibiting rich aromas and flavors of dried fig, white peach, baked apple and pear. It has a luscious mouthfeel that will enhance with age.

 

2012 "Russian River Valley" Chardonnay - $19.99:  This wine offers a rich expression of this celebrated appellation, with its elegant palate of ripe tropical fruit. Subtle notes of sweet caramel and vanilla are framed by a luxurious mouthfeel.

 

2012 "Central Coast" Pinot Noir - $18.99:  The Central Coast Pinot Noir opens up with delicate cherry and pomegranate flavors accented by hints of vanilla and toast. The mouthfeel is silky and rewarding. With time to breath, this wine opens to an alluring balance of flavor, texture and emotion.

 

2012 "Russian River Valley" Pinot Noir - $21.99:  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.
