Wine Of The Week - Jo Mamma's White

 
My introduction to Noisy Water Winery and its wines happened on a sunny day about ten years ago. Walking through mid-town Ruidoso, I was intrigued by the sign on the sidewalk in front of what, upon a passing glance, seemed to be a t-shirt shop, pointing the way inside to “wine tasting”. Not aware that such a practice as “wine tasting” even existed, I decided to see what that was all about. And the first wine poured into my glass to taste was Jo Mamma's White. It was, to say the least, a life-changing experience.

At that point, I knew nothing about wine varietals; about acidity or tannins; about blends or bouquets or body; or what made wines sweet or dry. All I knew was that I really, REALLY liked what was in the glass. And I kept coming back.

Eventually, I kept coming back so much that they put me on the payroll. And while I've learned so much about wines in the years since and expanded my palate to enjoy drier wines (red as well as white), there remains a spot in my heart for my first Noisy Water love, Jo Mamma's White.

Jo Mamma! Sweet and simple, yet complex and beautiful. A true reminder of all the mammas out there.

A blend of Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, and Moscato grapes, Jo Mamma's White is undeniably sweet, with hints of apple and apricot giving it a summery orchard fruit finish. Yet it's crisp, with a clean refreshing finish, making it an enjoyable indulgence on a hot day. While it's clearly a wine made with sweet drinkers in mind, many dry drinkers enjoy the fun yet complex blend that has made Jo Mamma's White a multi-award winning wine since its introduction. An homage to all the mammas who encourage us to follow our dreams but be true to ourselves, it's a perfect “girls' night in” wine (because who needs to go out when you've got this wine in the fridge?)

This easy sipping wine is made for sharing over a platter of cheeses (try some of our hand-crafted New Mexico cheeses, available on our website and in our stores) and fresh fruits. It's also perfect for bringing a touch of summer to the dreariest winter days. Any day with a little Jo Mamma is a great day!

“Let us have wine and women, mirth and laughter, sermons and soda water the day after.”

Wine Of The Week - Amor En Fuego

 
Only in New Mexico does pairing red chile and chocolate make as much sense as pairing peanut butter and jelly or rum and coke. While some people raise an eyebrow at the idea, they think this is something that is better suited to the making of candy, or hot chocolate, or maybe even a sauce for chicken.

Then along comes Noisy Water Winery and says, “Hey! How about making red chile and chocolate WINE???”

Amor En Fuego is literally translated as “love on fire”. And if you love red chile, chocolate, and wine, you’ll understand how this wine got its name. With hints of berries and toasted marshmallow on the nose, and a rich velvety middle of milk chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla, finishing with a spicy red chile kick (but not too spicy!), this wine is a perfect complement to an appetizer course loaded with fruits and cheeses or as a dessert with a rich cheesecake or anything sweet and creamy like tres leches cake. Or pair it with something dark and chocolatey, like brownies.


Amor En Fuego (Red Chile & Chocolate Wine)

$24.00

This New Mexico red chile and chocolate infused wine, will have you reminiscing on times spent in grandma’s kitchen!!

While it makes a delicious and intriguing dessert wine on its own, it can also be used to liven up hot chocolate or coffee. Or, freeze Amor En Fuego into cubes and use it to make a deliciously boozy iced coffee! Dress it up with a dash of cinnamon or red chile powder! You can also substitute it for any liquid in brownie or cake recipes to add a subtle, extra flavor dimension.

Whether served by itself or used to enhance a favorite stand-by recipe, you’ll be sure to add a little New Mexico flavor and mystique to your glass and table by including Noisy Water’s Amor En Fuego to your selection of great wines from the Land of Enchantment!

Wine Of The Week - 2017 Barrel Select Mourvèdre

 
I've said before that, up until about ten years ago, I was a complete wine novice. I knew there was red wine and white wine and, for the most part, I didn't like either one of them. They were “too dry” – at least, the first of each in my limited experience. And that, as far as I was concerned, told me everything I needed to know about wine. I would tolerate a glass for the sake of convention (because grown-ups drank wine with their dinner) but the idea of actually enjoying a glass of wine was laughable. 

I had no idea that wine ran the gamut from excruciatingly sweet to mouth-puckeringly acidic and dry. And somewhere in between, I would find my comfort zone. 

My husband came to an appreciate dry, tannic red wines much sooner than myself who had graduated from Moscato to Sauvignon Blanc, but he urged me continually to expand my horizons. However, my palate hadn't quite attained the level of appreciation for strong tannins that his had; consequently, I often retreated to my safety zone of dry white wines and concluded that I wasn't cut out to enjoy dry reds. Then, in 2018, Noisy Water Winery released their Mourvèdre.

A grape that originated in Spain and is now grown in France, Australia, and the United States. Mourvèdre – a wine I had never heard of, and like all wines in the Noisy Water catalog, I had to learn about it. Which meant drinking it.

The road less traveled in winemaking: first-growth fruit from a premier vineyard
View

Dark fruit and floral notes in the nose enticed me to take a sip. It was velvety on the tongue with hints of black pepper and herbs, perfect for a cool winter night and easily paired with any dish of Mexican or Italian food, especially something with a rich tomato base. And though it was a dry, full-bodied red wine, I was pleasantly surprised by the smoothness of the finish. It's just as easy to drink with good friends and conversation on a warm summer evening. Mourvèdre has encouraged me to step fearlessly into trying something new and expecting to be pleasantly surprised in the process.

So don't let a “dry red wine” label intimidate you... there's a wine for every palate and sometimes it's what you least expect. Try a bottle of our 2017 Barrel Select Mourvèdre and prepare to be excited to explore more dry red wines!

Wine Of The Week - El Cabron Viejo

 
Anyone with the most rudimentary knowledge of the Spanish language can understand why the name of this wine raises eyebrows in our tasting rooms.

Literally translated, El Cabron Viejo, “the old goat”, conjures up images of a crusty curmudgeon, and Noisy Water Winery’s Old World-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot seems to fit the image of a wine that is best served in antique crystal goblets in a dark, musty library while perusing a copy of “The Milagro Beanfield War” by John Nichols. Winemaking can be a science, but it is just as much an art and no winemaker truly KNOWS how a wine will develop. And like a wine lover’s version of a Cracker Jack box, there’s something unexpected in a bottle of El Cabron Viejo!

Notes of dark cherry, leather, and a hint of pepper fill the nose, suggesting a truly dry, tannic experience, but then one sip and… surprise! Like the grumpy old man who’s really all heart under that gruff exterior, El Cabron Viejo glides like velvet over the palate to an astonishingly mellow finish. Even novice wine drinkers who typically shy away from anything dry and heavy on tannins will be able to appreciate the smoothness of this blend. It’s a great place for them to start exploring dry, full-bodied red wines.

While dry red wines are typically consumed more often in the winter time, this blend is easy to drink year round. The bold flavor, enhanced by the fruity, peppery nose, makes this an excellent wine to pair with barbecue or anything else you can throw on the grill, though it’s equally at home with a prime rib dinner or any kind of meat with a rich, flavorful sauce. 

First released in 2014, El Cabron Viejo has evolved over the years from different blends, according to the availability of certain varietals and the winemaker’s personal whims, but it has always remained a customer favorite in the tasting rooms and at festivals. Once the initial gasp of disbelief upon being introduced fades away, the whimsical name encourages tourists to take it home as a souvenir for their favorite, ahem, “cabrones”… husbands, dads, fathers-in-law, and even bosses. 

One sip will be sure to charm the whiskers off any “old goat”!

“Nobody would do anything if they knew what they were in for.”
- Amarante Cordova in “The Milagro Beanfield War”
