Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2008

Member Review by EMark:

Very dark in the glass. Leather/tobacco herby bouquet. Intitial tongue sensation is somewhat "sweety," but that diminishes quickly. Not a fruity wine. More earthy or leathery. Significant tannin and some slight bitterness on the back of the throat. This wine is looking for food. We're having beef stew tonight, and that is sounding pretty good. US$39.99 at Total Wine

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
