March Newsletter

 
 

Happy March you wine lovers! The first month of Spring is here and the Earth is waking up from its long Winter nap. The month of March reminds us that new beginnings are in store, and soon we will witness the organic things around us bloom into life. This is also a great time of year to re-center and re-focus yourself while enjoying the warm sunshine. This month is all about fresh starts and new life, and we are right on time because the grapevines are about to bud after staying dormant all winter! 

 

This month's newsletter gives you a sneak peek into what happens behind the scenes at Noisy, and is packed full of information about featured products, events and what's to come! 

 

The Season Of Bud Break 

March is the month when we typically see the vines bloom into life! As the season of Spring creeps in, the weather gradually gets warmer and the Earth starts to thaw, creating perfect conditions for little baby buds to begin the early stages of a grape's life.

Preparing the vineyard for new life is like preparing your home to bring home a newborn baby! Throughout the Winter we have improved our irrigation systems, ran soil tests, tuned up our farming equipment, and are currently pruning the vines to welcome the new buds back home. Doing these things helps us have a fresh start for the growing season and also encourages the buds to grow big and strong for a healthy harvest later in the year.

Team Favorites

 
 

 Featuring Jozie And Her Favorite Wine 

 
 

Today we are shining the spotlight on Jozie, who is our Venue & Event Director at the Enchanted Vine Barn. Jozie loves living in her little mountain town and frequently jogs and hikes with her fur baby Monjeau (everyone's favorite host at EV 😉). Jozie's favorite wine is Aglianico for its full body, bright taste on the palate and that hint of chocolate you get at the end! The first time she tried it she was hooked, and now regular enjoys it while sitting by the fire or cozied up on the couch. 

 
 

PAIRING AGLIANCO

Jozie enjoys pairing a glass of Aglianco with a juicy steak or even just some dark chocolate. Aglianico has a rich Southern Italy heritage, and is one of the oldest grapes dating back to thousands of years ago. 

 
2018 Aglianico

A rich, 'big' wine, driven by the dark fruits, bold plum and robust cherry notes, explosive tannins and high acidity, leading to a surprisingly balanced finish with ever-so-subtle overtones of dark chocolate

  $42.00
 

WINES THAT JOZIE RECOMMENDS:


Cheers!

Wine Geek Wednesday

 
 
 
 

Sweet and spicy is our new favorite flavor combination, and there is a reason behind why these contrasting elements are so enjoyable together.

 

Pairing flavors that taste opposite to one another improves your tasting experience and that while the flavors are different, they actually bring out the best in each other and highlight the most enjoyable and satisfying thing about each flavor (aww)! The different compounds of different flavors creates a balanced and pleasing "mouthfeel," which refers to the way foods feel in the mouth.

 

This sweet red wine has an inviting aroma of red berries intertwined with marshmallows and automatically make you think of chocolate covered strawberries. Milk chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla continue on the palate creating a s’more like taste that then finishes with a slight Red Chile spice that you didn't know you needed.

 

Amor En Fuego also pairs well with spicy foods, so break out that charcuterie board and crank up the heat with some of our favorite snacks to pair

Music & White Wine

 
 
 

Wednesday we sent you our red wine playlist, now check out our white wine playlist, blanco sips. 

 

A Customized Playlist For White Wine Drinkers

 

We thought the concept of music influencing the taste of wine was so interesting we made a custom Spotify playlist for white wine drinkers. 

 

Move your mind to new frames of reference. pair a sound, melody or tune and be reminded of a specific place, event or period of life. Music can heavily influence how you experience wine, mellow music makes wine taste more subtle, whereas lively music makes wine taste more dynamic.

 

Inspiration Behind The Playlist:

 

To pair music with wine, the best way is to first find commonalities in both the wine and the music. A lot of white wines have fruity, tangy, clean and crisp elements so we curated a playlist that reflected that as well. Expect to listen to songs that are lively, youthful, fresh and bubbly. 

Disclaimer:

This playlist will put you in a good mood, and you might start dancing suddenly, who knows.

∙music & red wine

 

Music Influences The Taste Of Wine.

 

Drinking wine involves all of the senses. You assess the color of the wine, then you analyze the aromas that swirl around in the glass, then you determine how the taste and texture of the wine blends in your mouth. But did you ever think you could listen to the wine? It turns out, you can! Especially if your wine is paired with music. 

 

THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT

 

Music can move the mind to new frames of reference. This means that a single sound, melody or tune can remind us of a specific place, event or period of life. In the same token, music can heavily influence how we experience wine. Mellow music makes wine taste more subtle, whereas lively music makes wine taste more dynamic.

 

A Customized Playlist For Red Wine Drinkers

 

We thought the concept of music influencing the taste of wine was so interesting we made a custom Spotify playlist for red wine drinkers. 

Inspiration Behind The Playlist:

 

To pair music with wine, the best way is to first find commonalities in both the wine and the music. A lot of red wines have jammy, dark fruit, velvety and rich elements so we curated a playlist that reflected that as well. Expect to listen to songs from every decade that are powerful, robust, and moody.

Disclaimer:

This playlist will give you all the feels, and you might find yourself getting lost in the nostalgic romance of the ear-tingling electric guitar riffs.

Wine Of The Week - 2019 Reserve Pinot Noir

 

Well… what more needs to be said? One only has to look at the faces of the people who sample Noisy Water’s 2019 Reserve Pinot Noir to know that it’s love at first sip!

Just a few months ago (August, to be exact) we were extolling the virtues of our 2017 Reserve Pinot Noir. In that time, we sold out in time for the release of our 2019 vintage and this one is especially special for us: 30-year-old vines from our own Forbidden Desert vineyard in Engle produced the grapes that make this wine, thanks to the loving care of “Uncle Dick”, the “grape whisperer.”

Proud to have accomplished the nearly impossible in New Mexico: Producing amazing Pinot Noir in one of the USA's toughest growing regions for this grape

$35.00

Aged for thirteen months in toasted 100% French oak barrels, our winemaker has coaxed a fuller bodied, jammy wine with explosive cherries and dark fruit with a bold and rustic tannic finish with nuances of vanilla. Perfect for sipping around a cozy fire on a winter night, it offers promise of warm summer evenings to come and delicious lighter meals to pair with its provocative fruitiness. It’s almost TOO easy to enjoy.

 

Warm up with a bottle of our 2019 Reserve Pinot Noir and make memories to savor

 

“I would so marry Pinot. You can enjoy it at the opera, or the baseball game. It glistens in any crystal goblet but dazzles in a jelly jar. It’s exactly the kind of wine you’d bring home to mom and then sneak into your room after dinner. Before you blinked, you’d both be on the front porch (you on the swing, it in your glass) waiting for your grandkids to show up.”
— Jeff Bundschu, Gundlach Bundschu Winery

∙ love gets better with age, and so does wine

 

 Wine is more than just fermented grape juice as true love is more than just passion. An old bottle of wine feels priceless in your hands and radiates nostalgia, so for the sake of celebrating love (and patience) this month, we wanted to share what happens in a wine bottle over the years, what wines can stand the test of time and explain how wine, just like love, can get better with age.

 

 

What happens to wine when it's aged in a bottle?

 

Similarly to true love, select wine takes time to develop. Some wine tastes better with age because of a complex chemical reaction occurring among sugars, acids and substances known as phenolic compounds. In time, this chemical reaction can affect the taste, color and texture of wine.

 
 

We recommend aging our Petite Sirah, Merlot and Reserve Cabernet, as these wines will benefit and change from a few years of aging. We recommend not aging for more than 5 years, as the wine will be ready to be opened after that time period. Store horizontally in a cool and dark area for optimal aging! 

Pro Tip: Purchase multiple bottles of the same wine and open one to taste immediately, age the others, then do an analysis on how the wine has aged in grace over time by opening another one every 6 months - 1 year!

Wine Of The Week - 2019 La Vida Dulce

 

What could be more evocative of “the sweet life” (“la vida dulce”) than a wine that is easy to sip on a cold winter day around a fire or a warm summer evening in the shade of a grape arbor? Add good friends and good food and you have the basis for the creation of one of Noisy Water’s most popular sweet red reserves, La Vida Dulce.

Late harvest wines are those made from grapes that are left on the vine past the peak of their ripeness, resulting in grapes that have a higher sugar concentration and, consequently, produce a sweeter wine. Late harvest Mourvedre is the grape used to create La Vida Dulce. Aging in oak creates sweet notes of vanilla, strawberry, and raspberry on the nose draw you into a luscious, jammy middle and culminate in a sweet but smooth, lighter-bodied finish. 

 
2019 La Vida Dulce

"The Sweet Life" is everything the name claims.

$24.00
 

A popular customer favorite for years, La Vida Dulce is back and better than ever. Enjoy it with a sweet treat on a cold day or use it as a perfect counterbalance to a rich, spicy meal any time of the year. Just remember… 

 

“It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all”
— Laura Ingalls Wilder

Wine & Charcuterie

 
 

A Date Idea Just in Time For Valentine's Day

 
 

THE SCIENCE

 

Science tells us that pairing foods and beverages that taste similar to one another improves the experience and that the similarities compliment one another, but the opposite can also be true! The fat in cheese and the acidity in wine compliment each other because of that very fact- they are opposites! The different compounds of cheese and wine creates a balanced and pleasing "mouthfeel," which refers to the way foods feel in the mouth. No wonder cheese and wine pair so perfectly!

 

A Guide To Your Next Charcuterie Board

 

Olive oil and vinegar are excellent additions to charcuterie boards, as they can compliment many things on your board! They add that extra flair of flavor to crackers, bread or can be used as a dipping sauce in the center of our board.

 

Cheese is the ingredient in your charcuterie board that will complete it. Cheese adds different textures and colors to the board and can be paired with basically anything. Pro tip: Choose a variety of cheese that have different textures and tastes! For example, feta is soft and salty, as asiago is hard and slightly sweet.

 
Feta
$10.00
 
 
Asiago
$10.00
 
 

Rustic red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petite Sirah, and Zinfandel have bold tannins and a rustic taste pair with charcuterie with similar, smoky flavors
