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!

A Red Mare Customer Sharing Her Red Mare With Us!

A note from Jessica:

"Thank you so much! I look forward to drinking your fabulous named wine! Since we have many horses (40+ and breeding mares) alpha mare is what I’m most excited for! 

We actually got Elle from the Amish. It took three months to rehab her but she won every class in the Midwest area she showed in! This year we are planning on breeding her. Elle is very much a “red Mare” but when she loves you- she would do anything for you!"

From our winemaker, Anne Vawter:

"WOW!  As a former competitor, I have an idea of all the work, time, and resources which that photo represents.  Beautiful!  Thank you so much for sharing your Red Mare with us!  They are very special animals.  Mine taught me so much and still does.  If you ever have any questions about the wines please let me know.

We hope you all enjoy these pics as much as we do and she enjoys Red Mare Wines - Cheers!

A Special Gift For you....

 

Haven’t gotten a gift for the wine lover in your life?  We have a tasty and beautiful solution. Complimentary FedEx Priority Overnight Shipping valued at $100.00 Use Promo Code: HOLIDAYGIFT

We make a tiny amount of two very special wines.  Alpha Mare is a nickname that I was given many years ago.  I decided to lend it to our top tier wine. Everyting about this wine has been touched and retouched by me. I’ve been given “cart blanche” with fruit sourcing, barrel selection, fermentation style and packaging design.  


6 bottles are beautifully presented in a gift box with my own artwork. When the quote came in to design the box that I wanted, I decided to try my own hand…  I’m pleased with the result.  It is a lovely, sturdy six pack lay down box designed with a tooled leather pattern from an old saddle.  

The label of this wine features Paradigm, my own red mare horse. She had a photo shoot with Peter Samuels, a celebrated animal photographer in San Francisco. The back label features a photo of my mother, grandmother and aunt, all horseback in the Sierra Nevada mountains, a place dear to my heart.  


We only made 234 cases of our 2015 Alpha Mare Red Wine and a scant 142 cases of our 2016 Alpha Mare White Wine.  They are both unique, powerful and very special and would make a wonderful gift under the tree.


Learn more about these wines at our website and skip the holiday stress by ordering your own 6 pack box.  You won’t even need to wrap it!  

 


       2015 Alpha Mare Red Wine                         2016 Alpha Mare White Wine

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!


We continue our Holiday Gift of Complimentary Shipping on any order of 6 bottles or more! Save the gas, the stress and the time and order with us at our online store, or just send us an email or give us a call at 877-310-3335 or by using Promo Code: HOLIDAY2019 

Price: $43.20 Per Bottle

Wine Club Price: $43.20 Per Bottle

To receive by Christmas Eve, orders must be placed by 12/15/19 & for
New Year's Eve by 12/20/19.
