95pts James Suckling: Ripe-currant and walnut aromas with a hint of rose bush. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. Love the balance and beauty, as well as the purity of fruit. Drink or hold. 

This monster Cab certainly lives up to its Mountain origins with plush and forward blue fruits of marionberry, blueberry, and elderberry. Supported by Diamond Mountain’s famous structure and grip, deep notes of cassis lead into herbaceous touches of dried lavender and violet, touches of sage, and a striking, mineral-driven backbone. With integrated oak backed by fresh acidity and structured tannins, this wine has the propensity to age very well.

From the Winery: In 2003, Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery made its home in the Russian River Valley, on the edge of Green Valley at one of the oldest continually working wineries in California. Today, Courtney and his winemaking team devote themselves to Ray’s ideology of making “wines of place”. By sourcing from hillside vineyards, they are relentless at telling the story of each exceptional appellation and vineyard.  The depth of the portfolio offers those seeking a unique experience the chance to explore some of the most revered appellations in California.  From our 12 acre Estate, to the mountain regions of Santa Cruz and Napa, to the northern reaches of Dry Creek Valley and Sonoma Coast, there is an abundance of phenomenal growing regions, great farming, and meticulous detail to vintages.
