Father's Day - Focus On Cabernet Sauvignon

My dad is here with my sister Karen Minton, our artist in residence, along with her red mare, many years ago.

Father's Day is just around the corner! My father was instrumental in my development as a winemaker. He always took time to understand us as kids, finding and exploiting our natural motivations and talents anytime he could. I think he saw it as life's most exciting puzzle - to raise kind, successful, and happy kids. In my case, he saw my interest in agriculture and my fascination with the local Washington wines he would bring home. My dad saw in me the talents and abilities required to make great wines.

I didn't have such interesting ideas for myself. I was planning on a career in dentistry, which wouldn't have been all bad! But, I have to say that I'm thrilled that my dad stepped in and suggested I look into the Viticulture & Enology Program at the University of California, Davis. It was a perfect puzzle fit! My dad knew me better than I knew myself and helped me to form a career and life which has flourished. I am ever grateful.

This Father's Day, show the important man in your life that you are ever grateful and let us send him some Red Mare Wine!

2015 • Red Mare Wines • Napa Valley • Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon always has a beautiful wild cherry core. It shows off its lush red fruits and layers of complex characters underneath. You will always find bright fruit and lovely acidity inter-twined with silky tannins in Red Mare’s Cabernet Sauvignon.

We source our fruit from organic or highly sustainable vineyards. Learn more about the vineyards we source from here. Once in the cellar, we use old-world methods, favoring technique over additives. We only use French oak, and we only use three coopers that we trust. Anne has traveled to their cooperages in France and feels confident in their consistency, sourcing, and quality.

“Full-bodied, soft and with good expression, it has loads of  black fruit with earthy notions, finishing with great length.”  Wine Advocate

One Week Left for Memorial Day Pricing

There is only One Week Left in our Memorial Day Pricing Event. Stock up your cellar and make sure you have a little Red Mare to share.

The magic of Anne's winemaking style lies in the simplicity and framing of silky tannins, which her wines are known for. Anne reminds us not to pursue fads or heavy oak masking but to celebrate the site and the vintage in its own right. Her wines are elegant and balanced, excellent with food, and expressive of place. But, it is the magic of those silky tannins which identify Anne's style. "Designed to present a measure of austerity and refinement," is how James Laube puts it.

Until Memorial Day, head to our website to get Special Memorial Day Pricing on the Red Mare family of wines.

When you purchase 12 bottles, use Promo Code REMEMBER to add the benefit of $10/case shipping!

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

Have You Met the Cowgirl?

 

If you love fruit-forward, big, rich wines, you have to try our La Vaquera.

When a bit of our Malbec, Petite Syrah, and Petit Verdot were left over after blending the Cabernet Sauvignon, we experimented by tossing them all together, creating a rich, inky and powerful "mountain" blend. It was so distinct and so delicious, that we decided to bottle it.

La Vaquera is "the cowgirl" in Spanish, and this wine is our little cowgirl. She isn’t following any rules. An untraditional blend and a bold character, this wine is always pushing the limits. The flavors and spiced texture are excellent when paired with smoked meats or wild game.

This wine hails mainly from the Swickard Vineyard in the northern reaches of the warm Calistoga AVA. Appropriately, it is owned by the founders of Five Dot Ranch, the well-regarded organic meat producer, and purveyor.
 

Listen to what Jeb Dunnuck had to say about our 2015 La Vaquera:
"As you’d expect given the blend, it’s a glass staining purple color and offers exotic, huge notes of blue fruits, graphite, flowers, and charcoal. Ripe, full-bodied, firm and angular on the palate, it packs tons of fruit and texture, is a terrific steakhouse red, and should keep for 10-15 years. 90 Points"


Until Memorial Day, head to our website to get Special Memorial Day Pricing on the Red Mare family of wines. We have to say, we feel the La Vaquera is a very good value at this price...

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

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.
