Martin Ray Winery Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Vanilla, herbs, leather and cassis great the nose along with a light graham cracker framing note. This smells fairly ripe but with some freshness to the fruit. That ripeness shows on the palate as well with its slightly low acid and bold flavors, though that freshness is also at play here offering up lovely ripe tannins to support the herb and earth-tinged black fruit and slightly jammy plummy notes on the mid palate. The finish shows a bittersweet chocolate edge along with jammy blueberry and blackcurrant fruit, all ending with a dash of nutty oak. 91pts

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

Oak driven nose with butterscotch and toffee. A little underlying blackfruit, which comes forward more in the palate toward the finish. The body has a nice feel to it, slightly hot, but fruit forward.
