Library Wine Release

Along with many Napa Valley Vintners, we as opening our cellar and finding a few gems to share with our customers. Also, make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where we will be doing regular special pricing events and shipping promotions over the next month.

Have you ever dreamed of owning your own winery in the Napa Valley? Have you thought about tending to your vines in the California sunshine, getting up early to top up your barrels in a cold, damp cellar, popping a cork on a bottle of your own wine, and delighting in the aromas coming from the glass?

Jim Striegel has had a long history with wine and with the Napa Valley. While growing up in Illinois, his father purchased Napa Valley grapes, had them shipped across country, crushed, and fermented them in his basement. Jim grew up smelling the delicious aromas of fermenting wines emanating out of his basement. This began a life long relationship that has born much fruit.
During Anne Vawter’s early years in eastern Washington, she saw the wine industry growing up around her. With a father and uncle who had an appreciation and knowledge of wine, Anne’s interest naturally followed. With an agricultural background, the call of soil, sunshine, and a life producing an artisanal product was heard. This call led Anne to UC Davis, where she would gain the tools to realize her dream.

Jim and Anne’s paths crossed in 2006. A mutual friend introduced them, thinking that their complementary skills might lead to a good blend. In 2007, Anne and Jim began their journey together with the first vintage of Red Mare’s Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. They made less than 200 cases that first vintage, and while they have stayed small, they have slowly and diligently grown their business to include six beautiful wines that they are proud to stand behind.
Red Mare Wines’ focus is to produce unique wines from specific sites using organic or highly sustainable means. We employ traditional techniques to make wines with balance, age-ability, and grace.

Once a year, to celebrate our beginnings, we taste the past.  We dig deep in our cellar and find a small selection of library wines to share with our loyal customers. Purchasing library wines from the winery is always wise as the wines have been aged optimally in our temperature-controlled cellar since bottling. This year, we were particularly fond of our 2010, 2011 and 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.  There is a very limited quantity available, so act quickly and enjoy this unique vertical tasting experience.

Spring Wine Release

To our Loyal Customer,

We hope and pray that you are all well, safe and out of harms way.  The weather here in the Napa Valley is beautiful and we have the promise of an exceptional spring with which to begin the 2020 vintage.  We and our friends and family in California are sheltering in place due to the concerns around COVID 19.  Luckily, we are quite used to working from home and necessary winery operations continue without issue.  

We hope to bring you a little joy during this crazy time!  To that end, we are continuing with our Spring Wine Release AND we are offering a little help on the shipping. 

Sharing the wines that we lovingly make with our friends and family is the most satisfying thing that we do.  If you happen to use your time at home to make a delicious meal to go with a newly released Red Mare wine, please share a photo with us on Facebook or Instagram to receive a special promo code for your next order.  

Thank you for your continued support of Red Mare Wines

     From the Winemaker
     "This wine has a lovely juxtaposition of warm, dry earth along
     with cold pineapple and fresh pear. As the wine opens,
     stewed apples and vanilla cream come through. The wine's
     entry is all freshness. It fills the mouth with its generous volume,
     after which the aromatics rise up. It finishes cleanly with
     lovely acidity and comforting warmth."

      of shortbread, bee propolis, and ginger root…"

What to pair with Cabernet Sauvignon

Got meat? Then Cab wants to come over to play. Full-bodied and rich, Cabernet Sauvignon is assertive and complex, moreso than Merlot (its gentle neighbor in Bordeaux). It has plenty of tannin and acidity and shows off flavors of blackberries, plums, and cassis, along with vanilla, cedar, chocolate, and coffee.

Bottom line, it's a great choice for big, meaty dishes and rich sauces. And it's friendly with all manner of preparations: braised, broiled, roasted, grilled, seared, stewed.

Here are some of our very favorite pairings from AllRecipes.com with Cabernet Sauvignon:

1. Blue Cheese Burgers

Why it works: You can't go wrong with a grilled burger and Cabernet; it's already approaching perfection. But add a little funky blue cheese, and the Cab friendliness goes extreme.

2. Rosemary Braised Lamb Shanks

Why it works: Lamb and Cab, it's kind of a no-brainer. (See also, Grilled Lamb Chops and Roasted Rack of Lamb.) What helps vault this recipe over the top is the rosemary. Cabernet just loves it. Truthfully, rosemary makes almost any dish more red wine friendly.
