Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Courtney Benham 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

We continue to carry out this wine-making method with our wines today by applying the intuitive winemaking technique of creating the perfect conditions in which a wine’s essence can unfold naturally. This timehonored approach depends completely on the winemaker’s ability to know when to step in and when to let nature take its course. Our Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet color highlighted by enticing aromas of fresh, ripe berries and hints of spice. Lush flavors of blackberry jam and dark, black cherries complement the firm tannins and underlying accents of rich, toasty oak, leading to a full, lingering finish.

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
