2016 Martin Ray Chardonnay
California-Sonoma County

Winemaker Notes: Martin Ray is thrilled with the intricacies and sophistication of this vintage’s Chardonnay. Delicious aromas of ripe cantaloupe, golden apples, decadent coconut cream pie, and aromatic honeysuckle, with pronounced Meyer lemon zest, make this fresh, crisp Chardonnay an effortless companion with food as well as an elegant everyday drinker. Pair this refreshing Chardonnay with grilled herb marinated sea bass with mango chutney.

Retail: $18.99
On Sale Thru 4/24: $15.99

2016 Martin Ray Pinot Noir
California-Sonoma County

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.

Retail: $21.99
On Sale Thru 4/24: $18.99

2016 Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon
California-Sonoma County

Winemaker Notes: Martin Ray’s blend of Sonoma County’s sub-appellations expresses a wonderful complexity. The fruit-driven bouquet and palate extends notes of wild blackberry, aromatic violets, spicy persimmon, and mild, dry red pepper with a light oaky touch of caramel. This approachable, medium-bodied Cabernet is not to be underestimated with its structured tannins and perfectly integrated oak influence. Pair this elegant, yet approachable Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon with a hearty hamburger or meatloaf with garlic mashed potatoes.

Retail: $21.99
On Sale Thru 4/24: $18.99
