Martin Ray Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from selected vineyards int he acclaimed Napa Valley wine region. The sundrenched vineyards nestled in the valley throughout the region experience typically brisk, fog-free mornings, normally accompanied by a consistent temperate climate throughout the growing season. These vineyards produce grapes of exceptional quality that allow us to create wines with intense aromatics, firm tannins and rich, concentrated flavors. Harvest was an excellent vintage for Napa Valley producing moderate crop yields. The slow ripening season without heat spikes contributes to the positive qualities of the fruit: intense color, concentrated flavors and beautiful aromatics Cabernet Sauvignon begins with ever-changing aromas. Ripe berries and lush vanilla back aromatics thick with cherries and black currant fruit. The opulent palate is reminiscent of classic Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon. This bright robust wine with superb balance and structure is full of wild berry flavors that extend into an elegant finish. Aged 20 months in French oak. Food & Wine Pairing: Pair our Cabernet Sauvignon with a dish of roasted rack of lamb topped with fresh mint and Dijon mustard. Technical Notes: Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Brix at Harvest: 24.0 Alcohol: 14.3% Total Acidity: 0.64% pH: 3.71

Martin Ray Winery started in Saratoga California in the WW2 era. Martin Ray was a viticulture student of Paul Masson. This location was established in 1881 as the Twin Fir Winery. This historic site is distinguished as the oldest winery in continuous operation in Sonoma County and one of the oldest wineries in California. Some of the old grape crush barns from the original days still exist. If you are offered a tour of the old barns, gleefully accept the invitation. The Martin Ray Winery buildings would make a great movie locale. Check out the dozen old concrete vats. Each vat holds 33,000 gallons! Martin Ray Winery production began here in 2003. 9 varietals and some bulk wine blends are made. The reserve wines are silky smooth, loaded with flavor. Prices are very reasonable for these high quality wines. Read less

Wine Tasting NotesOur Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a tightly wound wine with a rich, concentrated structure and layers of well-integrated flavors. Aromas and flavors of cherries, black currants and plums are accented by hints of vanilla oak that lead to a long, rich finish. Pair our elegant Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon with your favorite hearty beef stew, rib roast or roast prime rib with peppercorns.
