This limited production Bordeaux style came together from the best of the best in our cellar. This is a serious, seamless and rich wine with immense density and a full profile of caramel, blue fruits, leather and spices. Alpha Mare follows in the Red Mare's style of diverse fruit sources and strong acidity but comes with broader and more diverse expression due to the blending of the main Bordeaux varietals.

2013 was a knockout year; a well-balanced crop and a warm and steady growing season produced outstanding fruit. The three words most used to describe this vintage are "early, even, and excellent.” Like 2012 before it, we were blessed with lovely hang time condition through October allowing us to take our time scheduling picks without any weather events forcing our hand. 

This wine has an intensely seductive nose with sappy blueberry, violet candy, lavender, baking spices, spun sugar and graphite. In the mouth it is big, broad and rich with ripe cherry, sweet vanilla, and savory herbs. It is full-bodied with hints of espresso and a nicely balanced, velvety finish.
