Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2019

Cabernet Blends  |  US


ONLY 25 CASES – don’t miss! From arguably Napa Valley’s most coveted appellation...the land of dozens of $200+ wines! How do they DO it?!

Guiding the ship at Martin Ray is none other than Keith Emerson, a 100-point winemaker that you’ll know from other big names, like Vineyard 29, Robert Craig, and his own Emerson Brown. A man who know his way around world-class cabernet!

Martin Ray was a wine pioneer who developed what is now one of the most historical properties in California, known as Mount Eden. Fast forward twenty years, Courtney Benham stumbled upon 1500 cases of Martin Ray wine in a San Jose warehouse and purchased the brand. And since 1990, has slowly returned this artisanal winery to its former glory, creating wines worthy of the Martin Ray name.

We still can’t believe Oakville cab at this price! A great one for the cellar, too, with a long life ahead…intense and dark, with great structure and an almost Bordeaux-like personality with black fruits, licorice, tobacco and cigar box, baking spice…all nicely wrapped in a mouthcoating texture and a bit of kick at the end. Wow! Wish we had more!!

95 James Suckling -
Dark berries, black plums, violets, slate and tobacco leaves on the nose. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a plush, textured palate. So supple and pure. Typical for Oakville. Delicious already but will improve. Try from 2023.
