Father's Day - Focus On La Vaquera

Terri Striegel's Mother at Father  

In our series to celebrate Father's Day, we turn to our very own Terri Striegel, who will tell us a little about her dad, and how he influenced her life.


"When I was a senior in high school, my dad did research on the best job opportunities for women. Knowing that I enjoyed math, he suggested that I study accounting in college. He knew that I approached situations in a very "black and white, no gray" manner down to the smallest detail. I am proudly the daughter of a Christian, army artilleryman."

-Terri Striegel


Does your dad love big red wines? If so, we encourage you to give him the gift of our La Vaquera.

Ripe blackberries and currants, fruit compote, pie spices, and caramel jump from the glass of this effusive wine. This cowgirl doesn’t hold anything back. It fills your senses with dark fruits layered with more subtle and complex notes of tobacco and fresh bread. In the mouth, this wine has a powerful entry with firm tannins and ripe fruit balanced by a bright acidity that carries this wine to a long and dense finish.

The King and Queen

Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are often referred to as the King and Queen of varietals. We agree, for so many reasons.
With our Memorial Day Pricing Event going on, this is a great time to stock your cellar with some Royalty...

Our Cabernet Sauvignon always has a beautiful wild cherry core. It shows off its lush red fruits as well as layer upon layer of complex characters underneath. You will always find that bright fruit and lovely acidity inter-twined with silky tannins in Red Mare’s Cabernet Sauvignon. James Suckling - 93 points

Missing the Kentucky Derby?

 


It would almost be Kentucky Derby time... This year, for the first time since WWII, the Kentucky Derby, is postponed. But, you don't have to wait to get in the mood! Join us in mixing up a Red Mare Sauvignon Blanc Mint Julep and watching this great YouTube Video of the Derby's Greatest Moments:
 

(Click image to watch)


And, until Happy Hour comes, you can learn about our Red Mare, the horse that inspired the name of our brand. She was a racehorse. She never made it to the Derby, but she certainly won my heart.
My mission when buying her was to give an ex-racehorse a new life as a show and pleasure horse. I thought I could train her up and then sell her to a good home in a year or two, thereby giving me the funds to purchase another x-racehorse and give that horse a second chance. Well, if you know anything about red mares, you know that this didn't turn out as planned. Paradigm (as is her name) had a few things to teach me, and it has taken her 15 years to do so. She taught me more than I ever dreamed of teaching her, and she is now teaching young students the foundations of riding.
Get into the Derby mood with our twist on the traditional Mint Julep. With fewer calories and lower alcohol, it's a great summer sipper to pair with the Run for the Roses!


Red Mare Wine's Sauvignon Blanc, Mint Julep
1 Part Red Mare Sauvignon Blanc
1 Part Ginger Ale or Ginger Flavoured Sparkling Water
1/8 tsp Maple Extract (Vanilla can work as well)
Muddled Mind and Mint for garnish
Ice


Our Yountville, Gamble Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc grapes are certified CCOF Organic and farmed to exacting standards, this site yields a very low crop level, resulting in intensity and concentration.

Get to Know the Alpha Mare

 

We take an exceptional amount of pride in our Alpha Mare wines. That is because we take an extraordinary amount of care while producing them. With super small production levels, we can scrutinize every detail that goes into these wines.

We laboriously barrel-ferment our Alpha Mare Red, a co-fermentation of Cabernet Sauvignon with a bit of Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Petite Sirah. This intensifies color, improves oak integration and creates complexity. We make our Alpha Mare White to age, modeled after the white wines of Bordeaux, this wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc clones and aged an extra year in special light-toast barrels from the Bertrange forest in France. This gives the wine exceptional depth and complexity.
 

Listen to what Master of Wine and Editor in Chief of The Wine Advocate, Lisa Perotti-Brown has to say about our 2015 Alpha Mare Red:
"...the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Alpha Mare is youthful with black and red currants, underbrush and black pepper notes plus wafts of bay leaves and cedar. Full, muscular, firm and chewy in the mouth, it has appealing freshness and an earthy finish. Give it a couple of years in bottle and drink it over the next 15+" (92+ points)


This wine has now had a few years stored in our optimal temperature-controlled cellar, and now it is ready for you.

It pairs great with striped bass, crab, raw oysters, even lobster. The theory here is to match a full-bodied wine with a full-bodied dish. If you have a broth-based soup, Chardonnay works wonderfully.

2019 Vintage In Review

 

 

 

Being allowed to make wine in the Napa Valley is a privilege. It’s a blessing actually, and one that we never forget here in the valley. This year I felt that keenly. Spring rains were consistent but not torrential, providing a fully refreshed soil profile when we started the season, which for a winemaker, typically arrives between the last weeks of March and the beginning of April, punctuated by the annual bud break. The dormant vines that have rested and re-charged during the winter start to feel the warmth of the soil; the sap rises and the buds swell. News of bud break spreads through the valley like a fever and the excitement of a new season begins.

Mother Nature was kind to us during bud break and early shoot growth, with mild temperatures and no significant wind events. It was a mail-order spring. May continued with moderate temperatures and our last dribbles of rain. We had one minor heat spike in June, but July and August were mild, with only one day breaking 100 in the middle of August. This consistent pattern of warm days and cool nights allowed for steady ripening of the grapes through veraison, the process by which the grape clusters change color and build sugar levels. With veraison behind us in early August, we slipped into a very lovey September which only broke 90 on 4 occasions. I picked my first whites on September 3rd. With maturing acid numbers and lovely flavor development, I was able to bring the whites in earlier this year, resulting in lower alcohol and beautiful natural balance. Nighttime temperatures began to dip a little into the 30s in October, with patchy morning frosts heralding the beginning of the end of the season. But temperatures remained kind. Daytime temps were lovely in the mid 80’s most days, even breaking 90 on October 24th, the day I picked my last Red Mare Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard. It couldn’t have been a better season. Making wine and living here truly is a blessing.

With the arrival of November, we saw our daytime temps slip into the 60’s and waited in anticipation of the seasonal rains, which we always pray will arrive before the fire season. That was not to be this year, as the Diablo winds and fires roared to life in the north and marched southward. We were fortunate that when the Kincade fire began, all of our wines were safe in the winery, but were very anxious at home as the wall of fire steadily approached and came within 3 miles of our front door. Finally, we with others on the property decided to evacuate, along with 14 horses, three dogs, several barn cats and anything else we could pack into cars and pick-up trucks. With our extended family of people and animals and a few vital belongings, we hunkered down at a horse barn further south in Napa. Cameron slept at the barn at night to make sure the horses were safe. For the rest of November, we prayed for rain and on December 1st, the fire season officially ended with some lovely downpours which, happily, were not overly destructive.

The details of the season are what makes a wine unique. Vintage does matter, even in Napa where we are fortunate to have relatively consistent seasons. As winemakers, being a weather junky is just part of the game. I believe 2019 is going to yield some outstanding wines. In early January I sat down with associate winemaker Jennifer Rue and we tasted through all of our 2019 wines. While some are still in their awkward phase mid or just post malolactic fermentation, they are all showing beautiful expressive characters that reflect the complexity of all that is bountiful and all that is challenging about the Napa Valley. We can’t wait to share their reflexion of 2019 with all of you!
