This rich and dense wine deftly integrates ripe aromas
and flavors of black cherry and blueberry with notes of cedar and vanilla spice. Structured tannins
and acids come together on the juicy and pleasant finish.
In 1856, Army Captain John Ray planted grapes on his ranch in Alexander Valley, CA. Originally
a popular stagecoach stop, Ray's Station became known for its quality regional wines. Produced
from fruit grown in the valley and along the lower slopes of Ray's ranch, these wines are a tribute
to the gutsy and unpretentious character of Captain Ray. Made in an approachable and fruitforward
style, these wines are very food-friendly.
