Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Vineyard Notes: The grapes for the Courtney Benham Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon are a unique blend of vineyards carefully selected from Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and the Diamond Mountain District. The sun-drenched vineyards nestled within this region experience typically brisk, fog-free mornings, accompanied by a consistent temperate climate throughout the growing season. Wine Notes: Our Cabernet Sauvignon is a luxurious wine with a rich, concentrated structure. Enticing aromas and flavors of sumptuous cherries and ripe plums are accented with hints of vanilla oak, which lead to a long, rich finish. Food and Wine Pairing: Pair our elegant Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with your favorite steak or rich beef stew. TECHNICAL NOTES: Varietal: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot Brix at Harvest: 24.4 Alcohol: 13.9% Total Acidity: 0.61 pH: 3.83 Quantity produced: 5,300 cases

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
