Bottle Notes

Courtney Benham acquired the historic Martini & Prati winery in July 2003, which is now Martin Ray Winery and the home of their Tasting Room. The Tasting Room structure, dating back to the 1900's, used to serve as a stable and bunkhouse where Italian immigrants stayed during harvest and crush. The winery also houses a 1-million-gallon production facility. 

Established in 1881 as the Twin Fir Winery, the historic site is distinguished as the oldest winery in continuous operation in Sonoma County and one of the oldest wineries in California. The winery was able to stay in operation during prohibition by selling sacramental wines by train to Rabbis through a winery in New York. Originally known as Martini & Prati, which was established in 1902, the winery was run by five generations of the Martini family. 

Thirty 11,000 gallon old-growth redwood tanks dating back to 1904 are still used at the winery and can be viewed during the winery tour. French oak barrels are primarily used due to its superb quality and oak accents that give the wines vanilla, spice and often herbaceous aromas and flavor. Most of the barrels are used for 5 to 6 years, depending upon the percentages of new, neutral and old wood they want to use on a particular wine.

Beginning a new era for Martin Ray Winery at this historic site in the Russian River Valley has given them the opportunity to create a home for the Martin Ray and Angeline wines in a very unique and inviting setting. Visit us soon to experience Martin Ray Winery first-hand!


Winemaker Notes

 

Angeline Pinot Noir is made from premium Russian River Valley vineyards. Coastal influences produce this classic, velvety Pinot Noir with intense fruit aromas, balanced acidity and fresh ripe berry flavours.


Tasting Note

 

Aromas of plums, strawberries and hints of toasted oak and smoke. Medium to full body, creamy tannins and an attractive, bitter, smoky finish. Some citrus, too.
