Wine Of The Week - 2018 Big Legs Red

 
If there is one thing Noisy Water Winery is known for, it’s for making great wines. But it’s also known for not taking itself too seriously. This touch of whimsy, coupled with a passion for making good wines to suit every palate is what led to the blend called Big Legs Red.

“Legs” is the term used to describe the streaks of wine that run down the inside of the glass when you swirl the wine. They represent how much alcohol is in the wine. While Big Legs Red doesn’t have an unusually high amount of alcohol for a red wine, it’s a fun take on a common wine term and Big Legs Red is nothing if not fun!

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Barbera grapes, at first glance, it would seem that Big Legs would be an extremely dry blend. However, it sidles onto the nose with a dark red fruit bouquet, teasing with a slight spiciness, before stepping into a jammy berry middle with a finish as smooth as silk.

If you have a variety of palates to please, Big Legs Red steps up to challenge. Pair it with snacks—a cheese and fruit board or salsa and chips—and wait for the party to begin! Not too dry, not too sweet, it’s a perfect wine for every occasion where fun is the main item on the menu.

“I don't mind your showing me your legs. They're very swell legs and it's a pleasure to make their acquaintance.”

Wine Of The Week - 2017 Pinot Noir

“Pinot Noir is the ultimate wine to have at the table.”
— Kevin Zraly, American wine educator


What? Were you expecting Miles’ Pinot speech from “Sideways”?

If, as Miles asserts, that Pinot Noir “…can only grow in these really specific, little, tucked away corners of the world. And, and only the most patient and nurturing of growers can do it, really.” then that tells you all you need to know about Noisy Water Winery’s winemaker! (There, happy now???)

Pinot Noir grapes grow well alongside Chardonnay grapes (they are both grown in our Forbidden Desert Vineyard in Engle, New Mexico), and Pinot Noir can be made into a red, white, rosé, or sparkling wine. And mark your calendar, August 18 is Pinot Noir Day! 

Grown in one of the most inhospitable regions of the US for this particular varietal, Noisy Water’s 2017 Pinot Noir is not your typical Pinot Noir. Fuller bodied with stronger tannins, it has an undertone of warm spice mingling with dark cherries, segueing into a jammy, vanilla tannic finish. Dry, but smooth, it pairs well with aged cheeses and crisp apples or a rich cut of meat.

Pinot Noir is one of the world’s most popular light-bodied red wines, but Noisy Water’s more robust vintage is sure to gain a new following for Pinot Noir from drinkers of drier red varietals. Easy to sip, it calls for a good book in front of the fire or a group of good friends around a campfire. Either way, 

Okay, one more quote: “Only somebody who really takes the time… to understand Pinot’s potential… can then coax it into its fullest expression.” I think it’s safe to say that Noisy Water Winery has that “somebody”.
