In an effort to produce a wine that pays honorable tribute to the esteemed AVA, Martin Ray sources their grapes from premium sites throughout the region. This blend includes several of the vineyards that have shown as standouts within the vast and rugged Sonoma Coast, most notably Mill Station Vineyard and Cartan Vineyard.
From the cool diurnal shifts in the south, to higher elevations in the North, there is a striking contrast to the concentration of fruit and high acidity. Cool, dry and long growing seasons in this maritime climate are essential, yielding wines of balance and complexity.
JAMES SUCKLING 92 POINTS - "Plenty of sliced-apple and cooked-pear aromas follow through to a full body, salty and tangy fruit flavors and a long flavorful finish. Really energetic. Drink or hold."
