Winemaker Notes

This Pinot Noir exemplifies the 2016 vintage, carrying all the expected traits of an exemplary growing season in Russian River Valley, as well as Carneros. The nose offers freshly macerated raspberry, cherry bramble, and spicy cola, which leads into tart cranberry, a subtle touch of nutmeg and silky refined tannins. French oak barrels lend support with hints of creamy vanilla without overpowering the fresh, fruit-forward palate.

Pair this vibrant, silky Pinot Noir with Duck Sausage, Mostarda and Brioche.

James Suckling
A subtle and rich pinot with dried-cherry and strawberry character. Medium to full body and firm, silky tannins that are extremely well-integrated in the palate. Lovely finish. Drink or hold.

Courtney Benham acquired the historic Martini & Prati winery in July 2003, which is now Martin Ray Winery and the home of their new tasting room. The tasting room structure, dating back to the 1900's, used to serve as a stable and bunkhouse where Italian immigrants stayed during harvest and crush. The winery also houses a 1 million gallon production facility that is used not only for wine production, but also as a 'custom crush' facility where over 20 clients crush their grapes and produce their wine.

Established in 1881 as the Twin Fir Winery, the historic site is distinguished as the oldest winery in continuous operation in Sonoma County and one of the oldest wineries in California. The winery was able to stay in operation during prohibition by selling sacramental wines by train to Rabbis through a winery in New York. Originally known as Martini & Prati, which was established in 1902, the winery was run by five generations of the Martini family and associated with the local Italian-American community that still includes the Sebastiani's, the Foppiano's, the Pedroncelli's and the Seghesio's.
