Martin Ray Santa Barbara Pinot Noir 2015

Member Review by Warrior58d:

This Pinot is one of the smoothest sub 20 dollar pinots I have tried so far. Granted I am very new to wine. The fruitiness of the grapes and the lack of the ugly long finish really helped. It was crisp and clean.

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

Ripe berry, lush cherry wrapped in cedar and exotic spices. Very nice!

winemaker?s notes When it comes to Pinot Noir, we apply traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques. The key to our winemaking is the ?intuitive? approach of understanding when to step back and not to over manipulate the wine. Our goal is to allow

The 2007 Pinot Noir has a brilliant garnet color and aromas of berries and candied fruit. The palate is full and sensual with ripe raspberry and strawberry, elegantly balanced with vanilla. The mouth boasts creamy, supple texture and opulent fruit, fused with smooth but bright flavors on the finish.
