    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Martin Ray 2009 Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir is a striking blend of grapes grown in the cool coastal area of the Santa Maria Valley and the Los Alamos appellations. The east-west running valley opens up to the Pacific Ocean, allowing the inland flow of fog and ocean breezes, making this region one of the coolest viticultural areas in California, with a long, steady growing season. Pinot Noir grapes from this region have intense berry flavors and rich colors due to the many microclimates of the valley.

    Our goal is to allow the wine to develop its own depth and distinctive characteristics. Three days """cold soaked", fermented at moderate temperatures and twelve months of aging in French oak barrels develops a rounder, creamier texture in the wine. The 2009 Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir has a deep, brick red hue and lovely aromas of rose petal, violet, earth, spice and ripe berries. The soft, textured palate is layered with flavors of strawberry, raspberry and ripe fruit. This Pinot has a full finish with moderate toasty French oak.

    Try this Pinot Noir paired with poached salmon in cream sauce, pork with mushrooms or roasted Cornish game hen.
