Winemaker's Notes

Our 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 24 months in French oak barrels, begins with ever-changing aromas, characteristic of mountain fruit. Ripe plum and lush vanilla overtones back aromatics thick with exotic spice and black currant fruit. The opulent palate is reminiscent of classic Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon. This bright and robust wine with superb balance and structure is full of lush plum and cherry flavors layered with vanilla oak that extend into an elegant finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Martin Ray has done a great job combining vineyards from multiple counties to produce this supple, polished, affordable Cabernet Sauvignon. With some Merlot and Cab Franc for complexity, it has flavors of black currants, cherries and smoky oak."
