Winemaker Notes

Martin Woods is one of our favorite new Willamette Valley winery finds.  Martin Woods (the woods and the winery) is hidden in the oak-forested foothills of Oregon’s Coast Range, within the cool-climate McMinnville AVA, just outside of the city of McMinnville. Martin Woods, spearheaded by winemaker Evan Martin, is driven by ideals of searching out and partnering with cool-climate vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley to produce truly-exceptional, artisan, terroir-driven wines.
In your glass, it greets the olfactory sense with an enticing bouquet of ripe strawberries, red cherries, and a whisper of raspberry.  Taking a sip, the palate is met with an equal measure of fruit and terroir. The vivid berry flavors are masterfully balanced with an undertone of wet earth and a hint of minerality.  This wine carries a medium-bodied structure that is generously layered yet wonderfully balanced. The tannins are soft yet present, guiding this wine’s texture to a smooth, rounded finish. A beautiful Gamay carries its acidity with grace, resulting in a lively freshness that threads through the tasting experience, enhancing the red fruit characteristics and creating a lasting, crisp finish.
