Winemaker Notes

Mad Hatter is the second label of Dancing Hares Winery which released their first vintage in 2003, and founders Paula Brooks and Bob Cook were committed to producing beautiful wines from their estate vineyard in St. Helena, Napa Valley under the winemaking direction of Andy Erickson. The goal at Dancing Hares Winery is to produce a red wine that best captures the character of the vintage and the unique terroir.

WS 90
Wine Spectator
This is a complex, with rich, loamy earth, currant, dried berry and hints of sage, gaining body and traction midpalate and ending with a complex, mouthcoating, flavorful finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2013.

The word "amulet" comes from the Latin word amuletum, which means "an object that provides good fortune" or a good luck charm. 

More than a talisman, the true mark of the Amulet Estate portfolio is a nod to the pioneering spirit of early Napa Valley viticulture and a deep respect for the land. Their portfolio extends far beyond the estate and into many other distinctive and historic vineyards. Blessed with close proximity to America’s most celebrated vintners and growers, they strive to embrace the values inherent in their community. Since acquiring the estate and vineyards in 2016, it has been their goal to create world class wines that reflect the profound expressions of The Napa Valley; and build a boutique winery "a gathering place" that reflects both their family values and the best of Napa Valley. 

Their approach to winemaking and hospitality encourage continued growth and graceful evolution. 

Their attention to detail in the vineyard coupled with a gentle winemaking philosophy allow them to produce wines with elevated purity that reflect the place the grapes were grown. They invite their guests to enter the gates and immerse themselves in what they do everyday and taste the fruits of their labor. Keeping their minds and eyes on what’s to come, appreciating the past as a compass to guide them forward, their vision for Amulet Estate and their portfolio is an outcome of merging classic and familiarity in progressive movement.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
