Which white wine pairs well with winter?

A Note From Our Winemaker, Anne Vawter...

I’ve been tasting and writing the descriptors for our soon-to-be released wines this week and I am constantly struck with the descriptors that I use for our Russian River Chardonnay. It always sounds like the fall harvest in a glass. If you are wondering which white wine to pair with your holiday meal, don’t forget to include our 2016 Russian River Dutton Ranch Chardonnay at your table.

This famed Sonoma County vineyard planted on the coveted Goldridge soils has been our only source for Chardonnay since the 2011 vintage. I recently tasted the 2012 vintage and was wowed by its age-ability! My husband poured it for me blind and I thought it was delicious. I mentioned this to Lisa, our marketing and club manager and she found 10 bottles tucked away in our cellar...it is like finding gold! My goal was always to make an age-worthy Chardonnay, and now I know - we are.

If you'd like to taste a beautifully aged California Chardonnay, made to last, only 10 bottles left

You can take home our 2016 Russian River Dutton Ranch Chardonnay and enjoy it this Christmas or for Christmases to come, knowing that it will be delicious whenever you pop the cork.
This fresh, clean yet rich Chardonnay is constantly converting people who claim they don’t like Chardonnay…Try it yourself!

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.

2015 Napa Valley Alpha Mare Red Release


As a winemaker, we are usually very focused on the vintage at hand. But, sometimes we are sent back into time when a wine which is in the market makes waves or when a consumer emails with a question about an older vintage in their cellar. Earlier this year, I was very pleasantly jolted back to the 2015 vintage when Our Alpha Mare blend received a Double Gold and 95 points from the prestigious American Fine Wine Competition.   

It took me back a bit, recalling that vintage and the time we spent making this wine.  The vintage was small, owing to a string of dry years as well as cool temperatures during the bloom. The Blossom Creek Vineyard which was where the bulk of this fruit came from showed very well that year. We harvested Cabernet Sauvignon and a bit of Petit Verdot which were co-fermented. This was the first year that I started playing around with barrel fermentation in my wines and I can still recall the fun of trying to figure out how to make that all work at our winery. Getting the barrel heads off, the grapes in and the heads back on has become something I can do without thinking much, but in that first year, it was a new skill being developed and a little daunting. Rolling the barrels in order to encourage extraction was also fun, but at that time, took a lot of space before we invested in barrel rollers.   

2015 taught us so much and we are so blessed to be able to do what we do. It is particularly pleasing when others appreciate the wines that we put so much individual thought and effort into.   

Elegance. Defined. Vintage after Vintage.

Cabernet Sauvignon source for Alpha Mare comes from the famed Prichard Hill area of the Napa Valley. This small amount of mountain fruit is thick and dense, with tiny berries. It provides a strong backbone for Alpha Mare, giving it firm tannins and a depth and minerality that is unique to this location.

Red Mare Wines 2014 La Vaquera Scores 93 Points & a Double Gold Metal

At the 2019 American Fine Wine Competition, our 2014 La Vaquera not only received 93 Points, but earned a Double Gold Award. These intense and lush flavors we get from the lean soils, namely in Calistoga, allowed us to find the "just right" window of physiological maturity and concentration of flavors. This wine is a blend of our richest, darkest and juiciest wines. Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot and Malbec and make up the main voice of the blend.
