This Alpha Mare Napa Valley White Wine is a study of breadth and focus.  Aromatically complex with layers of fresh and dried herbs, ripe peach and apricot, fresh florals and a subtle flintiness. Expansive yet lively on the palate complementary characters of supple warmth sit comfortably alongside bright focused fruit. A refined flintiness reappears weaving into a savory and graceful finish. 

2016 Vintage Notes

The 2016 vintage of our newest addition to the Red Mare Wines family is the last of Napa’s recent drought years. Luckily, late spring rains helped recharge the soil profile giving a strong start to the season. The early season started off well with no frosts or huge temperature spikes. After the cool spring of 2015 this uneventful spring was welcome. Mild temperatures continued into August and allowed for outstanding flavor development and retention of acid. 2016’s moderate yields and ideal temperatures are apparent with the expressive fruit flavors and freshness showing in the glass.
