Holiday Wine Guide

 
 

 

BUYING WINE FOR THE HOLIDAYS

 

A Field Guide Pt 1

 

THANKSGIVING DINNER

 

There are 4 components that traditionally go into a Thanksgiving dinner:

  1. PROTEIN: Turkey or ham
  2. ROASTED DISHES: Green bean casserole, or anything baked in the oven
  3. DRY SPICES: Cinnamon, clove, dried herbs
  4. WINTER FRUIT AND VEGETABLES: Squash, Brussel sprouts, onion, cranberry and potato

 

When you start to think about all of the ingredients that go into making Thanksgiving dinner, you begin to eliminate wines that possess flavors that are opposite of the flavors you would taste in your feast! Ideally, the goal is to match similar or complimenting flavors found in your meal and in wine! A dry red wine, for example, mirrors those similar flavors like nutmeg and dark fruits that are more in line with the flavor profiles in the entree of your meal.

 

We recommend a Pinot Noir, Zinfandel or a Barbara/ Gamay blend:

 

ON TO DESSERT

 

Pumpkin Pie is a staple dessert at Thanksgiving and is the perfect fall holiday treat. The mulling spices and honeyed fruit flavors found in sweeter white wines pairs up well with the rounder flavor of pumpkin and can handle the fall spices.

 

We recommend the 2019 Moscato and 2019 Gewürztraminer

 

Don't gamble on a cute label at the grocery store: keep your wine rack stocked with your favorite small producer!

 


Cheers!

How To Taste Wine & Develop Your Palate Like a Pro

How to Taste Wine Like a Pro

 ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌

 

4 Steps to Tasting Wine:

 

1: LOOK. Give your glass of wine a visual inspection in neutral light. Check out the color, opacity and viscosity.

 

2: SMELL. Identify aromas by swirling your wine 3 or 4 times to let the aromatic compounds of the wine mix with the air. Think big to small. Ask yourself are there fruits? What kind of fruits? Tropical? Orchard?

  • You can divide the aroma of a wine into three separate categories: Primary Aromas are where you find fruit, herb and floral notes. Secondary Aromas originate from winemaking practices (fermentation, etc). And Tertiary Aromas come from aging, usually in a bottle or an oak barrel. These aromas are mostly nutty, vanilla, baking spices and cedar.

 

3: TASTE. Assess the taste structure of the wine. Is it sour, sweet, bitter? Pay attention the the texture of the wine. We perceive wine as richer than water and we can also detect tannins with our tongues, which is that drying sensation you get from dry red wines. When tasting wine, there is a beginning, middle and end finish, so focus in on how the wine tastes as it moves through your mouth.

 

4: THINK. What conclusion have you drawn about the wine? Was it unique or memorable? Were there any characteristics that stood out to you?

 

Let's put the 4 steps to the test.

 

2016 Curtain Call

 
  $40.00

1. LOOK. Deep purple color. Saturation and density are heavy and is full-bodied.

 

2: SMELL. Heavy dark orchard fruit. Primary aroma of black cherry and tertiary aromas of vanilla.

 

3: TASTE. Pitted fruits and blackberries. Silky smooth beginning and mid-palate, finishes bone dry.

 

4: THINK. The deep and dark fruits are complimented by a slight vanilla aroma and flavor which balances the flavors. Perfect wine to pair with performing arts, or any reason for a curtain call.

 

 

Don't gamble on a cute label at the grocery store: keep your wine rack stocked with your favorite small producer!


Cheers!

Wine Of The Week - 2018 Nebbiolo

 

Nebbiolo: the name sounds mysterious, intriguing, enticing. Something that is somehow unknowable, indefinable, and—dare we say, nebulous?—waiting for an adventurous soul to take the first step to discover what treasures and mysteries it holds.

Nebbiolo is a red wine grape that originated in the Piedmont region of Italy… much like Noisy Water’s winemaker did, by way of his mother. Depending on who you ask, the grape either derived its name from the fog (nebbia or nebia) that takes place during the harvest season in the region where many Nebbiolo vineyards exist, or it comes from the fog-like “veil” that forms over the grapes as they ripen.

 
2018 Nebbiolo

A harmonious dance between rich, ripe fruit and smooth vanilla flavors.

$33.00
 

Noisy Water’s Nebbiolo is a full-bodied dry red wine, aged ten months in neutral, French, and American oak. The aroma of rich berries and vanilla roll in on the nose, with soft fruit and strong tannins on a cranberry finish. Dry and yet still easy to drink, its dark, rich color hints at the flavors to be found in the depths of your glass.


Perfectly at home in front of a roaring fire on a cold night, it’s ready to warm you up and complement a plate of cheese and fruit for one or for a crowd. Pair it with good friends and holiday cheer!

 

 

“…Every man has to find his own way…And I have faith in you. But your fly is open.”
— Don Pedro Aragon (Anthony Quinn) to Paul Sutton (Keanu Reeves) in “A Walk in the Clouds”

Beaujolias

 

 

N U E V O  N O U V E A U

30 million bottles of wine are shipped out around the world within 60 days of grape harvest from eastern France’s Beaujolais region.

 

Released on the third Thursday of November at 12:01 a.m. every year since 1951

Sound impossible? Hardly. We have a bottle just for you.

 
New Beginnings
 

As the name implies, Nuevo (Beaujolais) Nouveau, is "new" - young, that is - and is bottled less than two months after crushing the grapes.

 

In the 1950s, winemakers began competing each year in a race to deliver the first bottles to Paris, and before we knew it the competition had been pushed and publicized enough that the harvest and distribution of this wine is now celebrated all over the world at exactly midnight on the third Thursday of November, when it is legal to pop a bottle open.

Taste

 

Fresh, youthful and vibrant with lush, juicy aromas of grape, raspberry, fig, banana, and cranberries. This is as close as you can get to drinking wine straight from the vine.

 

Pairing

 

A superb match for turkey, right in time for Thanksgiving.

$29.00

Noisy November

November in the wine industry marks the conclusion of harvest and the beginning of wine making. We are making room in the production facility and putting new vintages in the bottle! Here is what November will look like at Noisy Water Winery!

 ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌

 

 November is here!

 

November in the wine industry marks the conclusion of harvest and the beginning of wine making.  We are now transferring 2018 and 2019 red wines from barrel to bottle, and 2020 white wines from tank to bottle.  Keep your eyes open for new vintages - many will be coming out in the next few months as we make room in the winery for new wine! 

 

It is likely that 2017 and 2018 vintages will be transferred to the library soon - don't forget to stock up on your favorites before they go on reserve!

 

Attn: this vintage of Pinot Noir is now in low supply...

 
2017 Pinot Noir

Explosive cherries with a backbone of dark fruit, perfectly married into a jammy, vanilla tannic finish.

2017 Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with something smokey!

 

Try it with Smoked Gouda...

Guess what... We are officially out of 2018 Dolcetto!

 
2018 Dolcetto

Dolcetto translates to "little sweet one" - though this wine is not sweet, it is delicate and bright and certainly makes us feel sweeter!

  $35.00

 

It is gone for now, but not for long.

We'll be bottling the latest vintage of Dolcetto soon - stay tuned friends!

 

November also marks the beginning of truffle hunting season!

 

We honor this magical time of year by indulging in decadent truffle oil! Have you tried it? 

It is amazing (obviously) on Italian dishes like risotto and pasta carbonara, but it is also wonderful for marinating meats, enhancing egg scrambles and hashes, and drizzling on popcorn with sea salt.

 

Check it out...

 
Black Truffle Oil

 

Cold pressed oil infused with black truffles.

 

  $30.00
 

The intense heat of summer brought harvest early this year. We spent much of the fall season drinking Uncle Dick's Hard Cider and playing frisbee golf after work at Enchanted Vine - the weather felt almost too nice late into October.  Then, out of no where, we had our first snow day of year! We spent the day snuggled up at home, pretending we couldn't possibly work, playing cards, and drinking our favorite snowy day wines!

 

This little taste of winter got us pretty excited for the holiday season. We can't wait for all the food, wine, and family time!

 

Don't forget to come see us at our wine production facility every Sunday for our weekly market! 

 

Come see us:

Wine Of The Week - 2018 Zia Chardonnay

One of the first white wines most people encounter and the experience is almost always memorable, for various reasons.

 ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌

 

Chardonnay is one of the first white wines most people encounter and the experience is almost always memorable, for various reasons. In my case, the first time I tasted Chardonnay was back in the ‘80s when it reached its peak of popularity… and at the time, winemakers were particularly enamored of oaky Chardonnays. VERY oaky Chardonnays. And a little oak goes a long, long way!

My next experience was with Noisy Water Winery’s Zia Chardonnay. To my surprise, it had no oak at all. Because the Chardonnay grape is fairly neutral by itself, this particular varietal lends itself to be molded and shaped into a unique wine according to the winemaker’s skills and whims. In this case, Zia Chardonnay was aged in stainless steel—Old World meets the New World in a marriage of a traditional grape with a contemporary aging process. As a result, it was smoother, easier to drink, a wine that would be as perfectly at home at a picnic table or the patio as it would be on the formal dinner table.

 
Zia Chardonnay

 

A complex Chardonnay that can make everyone happy. Traditional collides with new age.

$22.00
 

Medium bodied and semi-dry, with a slight minerality, this Chardonnay is perfect to pair with seafood and fruit. Along with crisp citrus notes with a buttery finish, there is a perfect balance of vanilla and fruit on the nose, making this a perfect wine to drink on its own on a warm sunny day. If you think all Chardonnays are the same, try Zia Chardonnay and prepare to experience Chardonnay again for the first time!


Named Zia after the symbol on the New Mexico state flag and robed in a label the color of turquoise, the state gem of New Mexico, this wine epitomizes the spirit of the state—unique, daring, and of undeniable beauty. It’s no wonder it was awarded a silver medal at the New Mexico State Fair in 2018 and it is sure to enchant dry and sweet drinkers alike.
 

 

“You can’t beat a nice glass of Chardonnay after a long, hard day.”

Wine Of The Week - 2018 Sauvignon Blanc

inspired by the refreshing mountain rains there is something to be said about the quality of this dry white

Noisy Water Winery claims its 2018 Sauvignon Blanc was inspired by the refreshing mountain rains. Certainly there is something to be said about the quality of this dry white and equating it with rain showers in the cool pines of Ruidoso!

Originating in France and one of the most widely planted wine grapes in the world, Sauvignon Blanc also has one of the largest ranges of flavors depending on where it is grown. It can range from a kicky, citrusy lime flavor to a rich, floral orchard fruit taste. Pyrazine is an aromatic compound found in Sauvignon Blanc that is responsible for the signature herbaceous quality of the wine. Depending on the age of the grapes and other factors, such as exposure to sunlight, the pyrazine level can enhance the flavor and finish of the wine.

 
2018 Sauvignon Blanc

 

Prepare your senses for this wonderfully easy-to-drink white wine!

$27.00
 

Noisy Water’s Sauvignon Blanc boasts fresh fruit on the nose, hints of peaches and pineapple, with a crisp and slightly acidic finish that makes it a easy-to-drink, perfectly balanced white wine. It has a crisp, dry finish and pairs well with all things green and fresh, especially dishes prepared with fresh basil, cilantro, rosemary, mint, and bell pepper or jalapeño. Pair with goat cheese or seafood; the briny flavor balances out the acidity of the wine.


Pour a glass of 2018 Sauvignon Blanc and feel the kiss of mountain rain on your tongue. It might inspire you to take a trip to the cool pines and visit Noisy Water!

 

“…I'd give you a taste of this nice new sauvignon blanc... It's going to go perfectly with the appetizers…."Jamie savored a tiny sip, and smiled blissfully. "You're right. It's delicious."
— Susan Wiggs, “The Beekeeper’s Ball”

Wine Of The Week - 2016 Curtain Call by Amy Bennett

 

2016 Curtain Call is the name given to Noisy Water Winery’s Bordeaux-style blend of dry red wines. “Bordeaux” refers to a wine from the Bordeaux region of France and is primarily made most often from Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot or other red grapes, although there are also white Bordeaux varietals. Despite John Cleese’s tongue-in-cheek comment, “Claret” is actually what Bordeaux wines are called in Britain.

 

“I can certainly see that you know your wine. Most of the guests who stay here wouldn't know the difference between Bordeaux and Claret.”
— John Cleese (Basil Fawlty, “Fawlty Towers”)

A blend of six different varietals, each showcasing its own characteristics in this spectacular blend: Malbec, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Petit Verdot. Though dry from start to finish, it has a velvety middle and is silky-smooth at the end, with dark berries and vanilla as an intriguing introduction. Full-bodied with rich tannins, it’s definitely the star performer at an elegant dinner or a simple evening repast.

 
2016 Curtain Call

Over 5 different unique varietals give an array of bold flavors and intimate complexities, while a perfect balance of fruit and oak helps this wine achieve nirvana.

$40.00
 

Curtain Call is definitely a prime example of our winemaker’s talent and creativity. Balancing the rich flavors and tannins of six different grape varietals is much like juggling crystal goblets, where a master touch is needed to find the perfect blend. It’s no surprise this wine has won awards from state level all the way up to international competitions.

 

So, on with the show! Uncork a bottle of Curtain Call and let your palate burst into applause!

 

“Hurried and worried until we’re buried, and there’s no curtain call, Life’s a very funny proposition after all.”

Wine Of The Week - 2019 Tighty Whitey White

I had a hard time finding a “tighty whiteys” quote, but one look at our new label(s) will put this quote in perspective!
 
“All that running around in my underwear put money in my pockets.”
—Mark Wahlberg

Too often, people think of fine wines in conjunction with formality. Fine china, gourmet foods, and tuxedos. And very intimidating. That’s why the advice is often given that, when one is facing a formidable audience or opponent, you can relax and feel more confident if you picture them in their underwear. “It made him realize his audience was human. I mean, you can’t be very frightening in your underwear!” (so said Dad-of-the-Century, Mike Brady to daughter, Jan, in “The Brady Bunch”!) So what better way to introduce wine drinkers to a previously daunting dry white wine blend than to picture the winemakers—and friends—in their underwear?

Noisy Water’s 2019 Tighty Whitey White is the third incarnation of this off-dry white. This time, we made it a proprietary blend of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay, using grapes from our own Forbidden Desert vineyard in Engle, New Mexico. A light floral nose invites you to sip into something more comfortable: pear and honey mingling in the middle and finishing with soothing, yet spicy, hints of chamomile and ginger. Crisp and light-bodied, it’s an easy-to-drink wine for just about any meal or occasion.


2019 Tighty Whitey White
2019 Tighty Whitey White
$20.00

A wine meant for the masses. One that strips it all down: back to when we only had a few oak barrels and our tighty whities
View

So strip it down to a new refreshing favorite. Dress it up, if you wish, with white linen tablecloths and more than one fork, but underneath, feel as comfortable and relaxed as if you’re kicking back on your own living room couch or back deck with just the bare necessities of life! 
 
In memory of John E. Woodward, who named this wine, a portion of the proceeds from sales of Tighty Whitey White go to support local charities in the Ruidoso area.
