Martin Ray Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2014


SKU 05754


This Pinot Noir exemplifies the expectations of what savvy consumers have come to look forward to from the Russian River Valley. The nose has notes of ripe elderberry, black cherry, aromatic wild rose, and spicy cola, with slightly earthy undertones. French oak barrels lend support with hints of creamy vanilla and toffee without overpowering the juicy, fruit-forward palate. Food Pairing: Pair this vibrant, silky Pinot Noir with mustard crusted salmon with roasted scallions.

Wine EnthusiastThis vibrantly fresh wine features tart, tangy acidity around medium-bodied layers of blood orange and pomegranate that refresh on the palate. Touches of cola and clove add complexity and spiciness to the fruit-forward juiciness, allowing for plenty of balance and approachability.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pinot Noir Estate Grown Russian River Valley is nice, uplifted and vibrant, with cherry fruit and red currants, not a lot of depth, but a good, easygoing style to consume over the next 3-4 years.
