The Martin Ray Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2014 is a bright and fruit-filled red wine from California. Layers of fresh fruit and jam abound in this wine. Red pomegranate, boysenberries, and rhubarb jam provide juicy and tart fruit flavors. These combine with earthy notes of mushrooms, sage, and spice. The texture of the wine is smooth, with firmly structured tannins and a bright acidity. The finish is fresh and clean, with a hint of toffee.
Enjoy this red wine with a variety of foods, such as tagliatelle with pancetta and roasted parsnip.
