Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2008 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast possesses classic tropical fruit notes of mangos and pineapples as well as good freshness and a medium-bodied, fruit-driven style with the oak pushed well to the background. Drink it over the next 1-2 years. ” (Feb 2011)

Wine maker notes
Premier Sonoma Coast vineyards provided select Chardonnay grapes, harvested at peak of ripeness. These were whole-cluster pressed to ensure a rich yield of apple flavors and mouthfeel.
At MacMurray Ranch, our wines reflect our passion for the special places that give us extraordinary grapes. Beginning with our home vineyard in the heart of the Russian River Valley, we select grapes from the premier vineyards of Sonoma County, the Central Coast and Willamette Valley to craft exquisite Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.
Our roots in the Russian River Valley run deep. In fact, our majestic ranch has been a homestead since the 1850s. Our 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 us share the incredible story of our world-class wines.
