  • Titus, we get these "Can anybody give me any info on this wine that I ... ... I ... you tell if "Martin Ray's" is printed on the label of that one bottle, or do you think it was signed by Martin Ray?If it is an actual signature, I'd have to believe that there are collectors--wine buffs, bottle collectors, California wine history buffs--who wo...

  • I wonder if anyone can take a guess at the value (or lack of) for these two bottles.  They were salvaged from a cellar where they've lain undisturbed for the past 80 years or so.  There were several other bottles of various wines and spirits, unfortunately, some sort of insects had consumed most of the labels and even a good portion of the corks...

  • Pinot Noir is most assuredly a fashion item, although it's been around for ... Neibaum too. In the 1900s, Martin Ray and Martini planted it and Tchelistcheff made what was supposed to be a legendary PN in 1946 for Beaulieu Vineyards.All of them tried to make something good. But fashion is what made it popular today. There were 70,062 tons of P... Read More

  • Martin Ray "Synthesis" Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Good complexity on the nose with dark blackberry and violet petal aromas with sweet spice and creamy notes of chocolate and black olive. Very expressive fruit palate with blackberry preserves, black currant and rich dark chocolate that carries a silky texture up front leading towards firm tannins on the finish. There's a nice acidity throughout ... Read More

  • Many wineries are distinctly associated with a single appellation or growing region. Martin Ray Winery unlike most can claim to real roots in two distinct California counties, Santa Cruz and Sonoma. When you consider the fact that they also source grapes in some of Napa Valley’s most prime AVA’s the picture that comes in to focus shows a brand t... Read More

  • Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

  • Step it up, guys!  No one bought anything in three days? I sent my ... tastebuds.  The '12 Martin Ray didn't do it, the Stonestreet from Sonoma didn't do it, either.  Neither was bad, but we want to find that sleeper, right? To make room for these, I might have to take some wine to an offline I heard about.

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Rich, deep black cherry aromas that deliver incredible depth of fruit and are only slightly tempered by floral spice. In the mouth, this is decorated with black cherry and red currant notes, a touch of medicine, and baking spice leading up to the oak and smoky wood spice on the finish. Read More

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Intriguing ripe berry aromas with wood spice and a flinty salinity on the nose alongside dark black cherry notes. This is expansive and quite fruity on entry with red fruit notes of ripe cherry, raspberry and a touch of medicine, soft structure and a finish of blueberry and delicate spice. Read More

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Warm, thick fruit forward aromas of baked apple, pear and vanilla caramel with some lemon hiding against the spice. This is a bit thin in the mouth but bursting with acidity, candied lemon drop notes towards the front of the palate, cream and butter towards the back and a warm stone fruit blend of peach and dried apricot welling up at the finish.
