Team Favorites

 

Featuring Tanis and her favorite wine

Today we are shining the spotlight on Tanis, a face you'll see regularly at the Noisy Water Winery tasting room in Ruidoso, NM and at Enchated Vine in Alto! 2016 Curtain Call is her favorite because this blend consists of all her favorite varietals (30% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, and 10% Petit Verdot).

 

Now that's what we call a show stopper!

 

Tanis loves to pair the 2016 Curtain Call with asiago cheese or a nice steak since it has similar and complimenting flavor profiles to red meats and nutty cheeses! Tanis enjoys the vanilla and blackberry notes of this dry red as well as the smooth and unique finish. She and her friends love sit back and hang out while they share a bottle.

 

Inspiration:

 

Making an international award-winning, show-closing blend where each varietal takes a bow: 30% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, and 10% Petit Verdot. 

 

Taste:

Vanilla and black cherry on the nose, working into hints of pitted fruit and blackberries. Finishes bone dry and silky-smooth. A full bodied Bordeaux-style red blend using the finest grapes in the state; a must-try for all wine connoisseurs. 

 

 

Pairing:

Pair this with performing arts, or any reason for a Curtain Call.

Here's Why Wine & Cheese Taste So Good Together

Ever wonder why wine and cheese taste so good together? Why they are the perfect match made in heaven? Why they make each other taste better? Well, there is actually a science (and history) behind it! Records dating back hundreds of years show us that wine and cheese have been served together for generations. It is believed among wine historians that the concept of pairing wine and cheese originated in the early winemaking days of France. 

 

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! If you consume fatty or oily foods/beverages, it makes your mouth feel slick, or even slimy. If you consume astringent foods/beverages like green tea and dry wines, it makes your mouth feel rough and dry. But if you consume these different compounds together, it creates a balanced and pleasing. "mouthfeel," which refers to the way foods feel in the mouth. No wonder cheese and wine pair so perfectly!

 

First, The Cheese.

Noisy Favorite Cheeses

Our Favorite Cheeses pack consists of Asiago, Chimayo Jack, Feta, Romano, and of course some Green Chile Cheddar and Green Chile Garlic Jack. Create a cheese board paired with wines for for a romantic night in or as the perfect snack platter for guests!

Next, The Wine.

2019 Wild Ferment Old Vine Pinot Noir

The dark berry fruit flavors in Pinot Noirs pair with the. nutty flavors found in asagio or gruyere. 

$42.00
2019 Moscato

Moscatos have a light sweetness to them and pair with those pungent cheeses like gorgonzola or our feta!

$20.00
2018 Sauvignon Blanc

Citrus mineral flavors found in our Sauvignon Blanc bring out the nutty and creamy flavors in toast cheese or romano.

$27.00
2018 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernets tend to have high tannins, so a high fat cheese like cheddar can balance that flavor out. Delicious with our Green Chile Cheddar!

$58.00

Wine Of The Week - 2017 Sangiovese

A wine varietal closely identified with Italy has found a welcoming home in New Mexico’s vineyards.


Sangiovese is an Italian varietal that is typically medium-bodied and dry. Noisy Water has taken it in a lighter-bodied yet still Old World direction, with subtle nuances of oak and a finish of wild cherry. Earthy, with medium tannins and acidity, it’s a dry red wine that can carry the richness of burrata and other Italian cheeses yet complement hearty tomato-based dishes, whether served in a warm summer vineyard or on a chilly winter night.

The word “sangiovese” is believed to have come from “sanguis Jovis”, Latin for “blood of Jupiter”, the god of sky and thunder and the king of the gods in Roman mythology. The name was given to the wine by monks who lived near Monte Giove (Mount of Jupiter) in Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. It is the grape used primarily in blending Chianti but Noisy Water’s winemaker decided to let this varietal stand on its own.

 
2017 Sangiovese

This dry red adds a New Mexico taste to this staple Italian varietal.

$18.00  $22.00
 

Striking a balance between traditionally rustic and fruit-forward, like blending a Currier and Ives Christmas with a Trans-Siberian Orchestra soundtrack, our 2017 Sangiovese is waiting for a place at your holiday table!

How The Shape of the Glass Influences the Taste of Wine

 

It is True. The Taste of Wine Can Change in Different Glasses.

 

According to Riedel Crystal, the 260-year-old Austrian fine glassware company, a glass should be a "wine tool" designed to unlock a wine's full flavour potential, not just something to pour the wine into.

 

The Science Behind This Phenomenon 

 

The architecture of a wine glass consists of three components: The bowl. the stem and the base, all of which work together to deliver the "message" of your wine. The bowl of the glass is the key element that influences the flavor of your wine. Bowls of wine glasses can have different shapes, sizes and rim diameters; this is what can change the tasting elements of the wine, and this is how:

 

  • The diameter of the rim determines how much air can reach your wine, and how effectively your wine can "breathe."
  • Different sizes of glasses determines how much available space there is for your face to fit into when you tilt the glass to drink the wine. Your nose, in particular, is very important in the involvement of activating our senses.
  • The shape and size of the glass influences the direction that the wine hits your tongue and mouth, and which taste buds the wine hits first. Different tastebuds on your tongue taste different things!
 

A WINE GLASS GUIDE JUST FOR YOU

 

RED WINE

Drinking red wine from a glass with a medium sized bowl is best, because this allows the wine to breathe as the exposure to oxygen allows bolder notes to come through. The wide rim also allows your nose to fit inside the glass, which is ideal for maximum immersion of the wine!

 
Bottle of

2019 Reserve Pinot Noir

  $35.00
 

OAKED WHITES

White wines, particularly Oaked Chardonnay, is best served in a glass with a large bowl and wide rim. The size of the large bowl allows the wine to develop and avoid becoming too concentrated. The wide mouth also steers the wine to the edges of the tongue, where sour and bitter notes are tasted. This helps the toasty aroma and acidity of the wine be well balanced!

 

2018 Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay

  $27.00
 

BUBBLY/ SPARKLING

Contrary to popular belief, bubbly, sparkling wine and Champaign are best served in a glass with a medium to small bowl and rim and not in a flute! The diameter of this glass allows the aroma to be released, as the narrow body of a flute doesn't allow this to happen as effectively.

Classic Italian Reds

HUGE HALF AND FULL CASE DISCOUNT OF TWO CLASSIC ITALIAN REDS,

 

TODAY NOVEMBER 25th ONLY

 
 

Classic Italian Reds: 2017 Sangiovese & 2018 Nebbiolo

 

Sangiovese is Italy's most planted grape and is the pride and joy of the Tuscan region. Sangiovese grapes take on new flavors and different stylists expressions based on where it grows. The high acidity in this wine makes it optimal for pairings with spice driven foods like tomato, red pepper pizza!

 

Nebbiolo grapes can date back as far as the 13th century and carries a big punch of tannins. This punchy red would pair nicely with foods that feature fat, butter or olive oil. Classic rustic Italian food is excellent with this wine of course, but so is hearty and savory Asian-inspired cuisine!

 

2017 Sangiovese

 

Inspiration:

 

Sangiovese is a staple Italian varietal, inspiring our winemaker to tip his hat to his family's Italian lineage of winemaking roots

 

Taste:

 

An abundance of tart cherries on the nose and palate, open to nuances of earthiness and tea leaves, with a finish off medium tannins and racy acidity. PairingPizza, pasta, any tomato-based Italian cuisine, Mafia-inspired movies, fresh burrata cheeses, and good friends! Salud!

 

2017 Sangiovese

  Regularly $22.00/bottle
 

2018 Nebbiolo

 

Inspiration:

 

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

 

Taste:

 

Rich berries with subtle vanilla on the nose. Strong tannis - but soft fruit - on the palate, with a lingering taste of cranberry.

Early Black Friday Discounts

 

MAJOR SAVINGS ON HALF AND FULL CASES OF

 

NUEVO VERDE & 2019 WILD FERMENT PINOT NOIR 👇


TODAY NOVEMBER 24TH ONLY!

 
 

From Farm to Table, a Generational Family Business

 

Jornada del Muerto, or Journey of the Dead Man, is a dry desert basin in New Mexico where the Forbidden Desert Vineyard resides (one of the oldest vineyards in the state). Some of the best grapes in the world are harvested here, and we are proud to say the farm is owned and operated by Noisy Water Winery. The area remains uninhabited and undeveloped to this day, except for our patch of grape vines that produce unexpectedly abundant and healthy harvests even in the harsh heat and dryness. Winemaking is in our blood, as we are 5th generation farmers, so you can expect that each grape is nurtured and loved, especially by Uncle Richard, the Vineyard Manager who is pictured above. Our goal is for you to be able to taste the dedication in our wine!

 

 

Nuevo Verde & Wild Ferment Pinot Noir

 

These two wines come from grapes that are harvested at Engle Farms. In fact, our first harvest of grapes from this farm for the 2019 Wild Ferment Pinot Noir will be right in time for the holidays. The Nuevo Verde is a dry white that is crisp and refreshing and would be a great afternoon starter wine on any of the holidays. The 2019 Pinot Noir is bold and robust with notes of dark fruit. This would pair perfectly with a prime rib or grilled salmon.

 

2019 Nuevo Verde

 

What is Vinho Verde?

 

Vinho Verde refers to Portuguese wine that translates as "young wine". Typically released three to six months after the grapes are harvested, which can be red, white or rose. Nuevo Verde is our homage to the great Vinho Verdes of Portugal with our own NWW New Mexican twist.

 

Winemaker's Notes:

 

A meaningful first harvest for us after taking on a neglected vineyard, and breathing new life into dying vines. Citrus backbone, bright, fruity, and easily paired with or without dinner.

 
2019 Nuevo Verde
  Sale Price $24.00/bottle
 

2019 Old Vine Pinot Noir

 

Winemaker's Notes:

 

Remarkable old vine fruit, harvested by hand in our vineyard. Natural yeast of the area to start fermentation in a very atypical fashion. Allowing the indigenous strains of yeast to do the work, this wine was made the way wine was made in New Mexico nearly 400 years ago.

 

Taste:

 

This wine showcases beautiful New Mexican fruit and indigenous yeast

The Most Popular White Wine In The World

 

 

❤️ 4 Days of  Black Friday Discounts❤️

 

HUGE HALF AND FULL CASE DISCOUNTS OF

RESERVE CHARDONNAY & SKIN FERMENTED CHARDONNAY TODAY, NOVEMBER 23rd ONLY

 

THE MOST POPULAR WHITE WINE IN THE WORLD

Why do we love Chardonnay?

 

Chardonnay is so popular because it is so versatile! A huge variety of flavors and styles develop in the wines produced from this grape. 

 

The Commonalities & Differences Between Our Reserve and Skin Fermented Chardonnays:

 

The Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay is aged in a new oak barrel and through this process, the oak imparts flavors into this wine like vanilla, caramel and butter. The Skin Fermented  Chardonnay, or Orange Chardonnay, is also made from chardonnay grapes, but unlike the reserve, the skins on these grapes are not removed during fermentation, which results in a delicate balance of plump apricot and heavy floral notes. This classic reserve and golden-hued beauty are definitely one for the books. 

 

 

2018 Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay

 

Inspiration:

 

Finding the perfect balance of butter and oak: A Chardonnay for all Chardonnay drinkers to love. 

 

Taste:

 

Citrus and stone fruit on the nose, a toasted and buttery middle with a smokey vanilla finish

 

2018 Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay

 

 

  Regularly $27.00/bottle
 

2019 Skin Fermented Chardonnay

 

Winemaker's Notes:

 

A meaningful first harvest for us after taking on a neglected vineyard, and breathing new life into dying vines and get beautiful fruit from 30+ year old vines! Nuances of butter and quince bring out the depth of this gorgeous old-vine chardonnay
