Martin Ray Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
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.
