“The aromas cooked strawberries and rose petals are so beautiful here with undertones of smoke. Full body, round and soft tannins and a fresh finish of bright acidity. It has a creamy texture at the end. Savory, too. Drink or hold.”

Well, we are sitting pretty at the moment, happy as clams with our little stack of 94-point Martin Ray single-vineyard Pinot right now. Alas, we expect this to disappear in a flash...at this price??

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. Courtney purchased the brand, and since 1990 has been committed to the production of artisanal wines worthy of the Martin Ray name.
