Winemaker Notes

The 2014 La Vaquera is an invitation to celebrate what we can do in California with big berried varietals. From start to finish this wine is a study of dark inky purple and deep ripe fruit. Inviting brambly aromas of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice and cracked pepper give way to ripe, jammy black fruit compote and a richly layered and textured palate with heft and volume. Once in the mouth, the mid-palate is punctuated by fine talc and opens nicely to a counterpoint of delicate powdery florals lifting ripe black plum, vanilla and white tobacco to a pepper and creamy espresso laced finish. This is an energetic, flavorful and robust wine.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 La Vaquera is a blend of 58% Petite Sirah, 32% Petit Verdot and 10% Malbec. As one might expect, this wine is as dark as a moonless sky. Notes of earth, blue fruits and violets lead to a massively extracted, rich, full-bodied wine, but surprisingly, it has no trace of rusticity or harsh tannin. It is a big, juicy fruit bomb and will develop and age for at least 15-20 years., given its composition. This is an intriguing wine, and it’s probably worth putting a few bottles away for what I predict will be wonderful surprise in 12-15 or more years. 91+ points

The 2014 La Vaquera checks in as a blend of 58% Petite Sirah, 32% Petit Verdot and 10% Malbec. 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.

Red Mare Wines, California
After working for four years as assistant winemaker at Paradigm for Heidi Barrett, one of the world’s renowned winemakers, Anne Vawter opened her winemaking consultancy with support and encouragement from Heidi, whose referrals now make up Anne's client list. Shortly after, Anne began her own venture with Partner Jim Striegel - Red Mare Wines.

An avid horse woman, Anne named her wine label in honor of her red mare, Paradigm, who was a bonus given to her during her time at Paradigm Winery. The inaugural release of Red Mare Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2007 vintage, sold out in just two months. In addition to her Cabernet Sauvignon, Anne also produces a Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc and added a Sonoma Chardonnay in the 2011 vintage.

Red Mare Wines sources fruit meticulously from very small, well-respected vineyards throughout the Napa Valley, from a cool enclave of the Carneros to a hill top in Coombsville, and northward on the Valley floor in Oakville, Rutherford and St. Helena.
