Martin Ray 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

Martin Ray 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, $15.29-$19.99, 89 points, poured a clear burgundy color with a broad transparent wine ring and moderate legs.
The unpresuming twist-off cap may help to account for the bright fruity aromas, but a lovely potpourri was an excellent counterpoint.
Near full-bodied with good acidity and a taut underlayment of tannin carried early palate boysenberry with black currants, and tangy plum flavors.
I didn't get a lot of complexity here, but a good yeomen's red table wine.
Finished well with a cayenne pepper spice, youthful black currants, and a comfortable 14.2% alcohol.
Paired nicely with my baked fig-pecan roll dessert.

  1. This wine has nothing to do with the historic winery. You really should read 'Vineyards in the Sky'.

    1. Thanks for calling attention to Martin Ray's history.
