Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Martin Ray Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Martin Ray's Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon is often defined by its subtlety in contrast to the much more immodest mountain Cabernets, with already matured ripe red cherries, floral violets and aromatic baking spices reminiscent of nutmeg and cloves. As is typical of the Stags Leap District Cabernet, it is always the first out of the gate with an early appreciable mellowing of its tannins and forward presentation of its bright red fruit.

Fermented in small 4-6 ton open top fermenters, with thrice daily pump overs for cap management. Upon finishing fermentation the wine is allowed to rest on its skins for up to a month. Aged in 65% new French oak for 18 months. 

Underripe raspberry, pomegranate skins, vibrant kirsch with Earl Grey tea, bergamot, and pepper offering a savory finish in contrast to the vibrant red fruit.
