Martin Ray on Snooth

  • Martin Ray Chardonnay Carneros 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice Martin Ray Chardonnay from Carneros. Light and crisp with really nice acidity. Creamy lemon and green apple notes cover the mid-palate and hang on for a medium+ finish. Extremely enjoyable for the price. Read More

  • Martin Ray Red 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very passable Sonoma red blend from Martin Ray. Picking up hints of cab and maybe some petite sirah but somewhat lighter in body. There's dark cherry, plum and a touch of smoke, light tannins and medium-short finish. Not bad for around $10. Read More

  • A few months ago I posted, in this very thread, I believe, that the Ceritas 2011 Peter Martin Ray was arguably the best Chardonnay I have ever had.  That bottle was #1 in the allocation that I received from Ceritas last fall.  In an effort to turn another "clean out the refrifgerator" dinner into a Valentines Day event, tonight, we are going to ...

  • Martin Ray Chardonnay Reserve Carneros 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly nice Carneros chardonnay. Not overly complex or layered but decent fruit overtones of green apple, pear and lemon chiffon. Not overly oaked or too buttery with decent acidity. Read More

  • Ceritas Martin Ray Vineyard Chardonnay 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Very subtle nose--there are hints, but only hints, of apple or peak, and maybe a touch of oak. Incredibly nice on the palate. No one thing blows you away. Light flavors of peach, very nice acid. I can't say there is any kind of butter or vanilla flavors--things I do not care for, but there ins the impression or tactile sensation of this. Th... Read More

  • Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Tight and a bit nutty on the nose with soft suggestions of blackcurrants and black raspberries under sweet, toasted oak spice. This is lean and focused in the mouth and while wood tannins add their mark early on the palate I can see them resolving with time leaving the slightly creamy yet clear fresh mineral edged red currant and wild raspberry ...

  • Martin Ray Merlot 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Nice easy drinking Napa merlot. Not over the top jammy, decent blackberries, dried blueberries and fine tannins. More on the fruit forward side without any of the musty barnyard taste some merlots can have. Read More
