We are doing the happy dance around the Invino office today - wow! SYNTHESIS is one of Martin Ray’s top Napa Valley cuvees, and to see it under $50, much less $30, is truly awesome. A silky, succulent blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, it is packed with mulberry and fresh-baked berry pie, cigar box and cocoa nibs. This is a massive overdeliverer, but hey, read the 95-point review by James Suckling:

The name Martin Ray resonates deeply in the history of California Winemaking. Martin Ray was a pioneer, dedicated to crafting single varietal, region-specific wine from 1943 through 1972 in Saratoga, in the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Mentored by Paul Masson, he took a Burgundian approach to his winemaking, and developed what is now one of the most historical properties in California, known as Mount Eden.

Nearly twenty years later, Courtney Benham stumbled upon 1500 cases of Martin Ray wine in a San Jose warehouse. Recognizing his good fortune, and his intent and drive to produce terroir driven wines, Ray’s historical significance and philosophy resonated with him. Courtney purchased the brand, and since 1990 has been committed to the production of artisanal wines worthy of the Martin Ray name.

We’ll sell out in a flash at this wild price! While it lasts!
