Martin Ray
2020 Rosé
, Sonoma Coast

91 Points, James Suckling

Fresh cherry, white peach and lemon zest notes with a core of racy, vibrant acidity.  A touch of pink grapefruit and honeycomb, with a linear core throughout and creamy finish.  While always fresh and food friendly, this Rosé is also complex, intended to be enjoyed all year.  Lean and pure of fruit with brilliant high tones that highlight the expressive varietal.

Very Limited. While it lasts.

VINEYARDS

Coming from a small percentage of nearly all of our Sonoma Coast vineyards including Martin Ray Estate, Ricioli Vineyard, Dutton Ranch. Each picked at its ideal ripeness to maximize the flavors of our Pinot Noir, the subsequent Rosé also takes on the complex bouquet and palate.

VINTAGE NOTES

Shifts in temperature throughout the season resulted in shorter hangtime and lower yields, but the fruit retained bright acidity, resulting in lively wines. While quantity may be a bit lessened this vintage, the quality is excellent!

Fess Parker
2017 Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills
Pommard Clone

94 Points, Vinous
Racy, exuberant and flat-out delicious. Seared black cherries, red and purple flowers, sage and vanilla make for a very compelling nose on this bottling of a single clone. The palate is fresh with snappy raspberry flavors and then broadens toward baking-spice flavors, proving quite lush and delicious. This is an especially alluring style.

Epiphany
2017 Red Blend, Syrah-Cabernet
Santa Barbara County

93 Points, Vinous
A great example of where Cabernet's structure and depth are balanced by Syrah's jammy fruit-forward flavors. Savory aromas of dark berries, cassis, baking spices and vanilla that intermingle with earthy notes of dried tobacco, cigar box and saddle leather. Notes of dark fruit flavors carry on to the palate, with dark chocolate, vanilla and a hint of black currant.

2017 Chardonnay, Santa Maria Valley
Sierra Madre Vineyard

91 Points, Wine Enthusiast
Aromas bright orchard fruit, lemon confit and white flowers. The palate is crisp, fresh, ripe and savory all at once... a nice interplay of honeyed citrus fruits in the mouth, with a light to medium weight, juicy acidity presenting flavors of Asian pear, nectarine and Rainier cherry with a smooth textured finish of new French oak.
