Core Cuvee Fletcher Alta Mesa Vineyard Proprietary Blend Wine 2007

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Tasted out of barrel and showing loads of promise the 2007 Core Cuvie Fletcher Alta Mesa 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre has great aromatics of both red and black fruits tar spice and copious mineral notes. Compact and structured on the palate the wine is medium to full bodied well fruited very tannic and possesses an impressive long finish. Rhone Report The.

Dave Corey's educational background includes a bachelor's degree in Biology from San Jose State University and a master's degree in Entomology and Plant Physiology from Kansas State University, which was completed in 1995. Prior to entering the wine industry in 1996 , Dave worked in Salinas and the Central Valley in agricultural fields including cole crops, cotton, almonds, citrus, walnuts, kiwi, table grapes, apples and stone fruit. His first position in the wine industry was as a Pest Control Advisor with Cambria Winery and Vineyards and later at Kendall-Jackson Vineyards of Santa Barbara County. Dave left Kendall Jackson Vineyards in 1999 to begin Vital Vines, a viticultural company providing technical support for vineyard property owners, vineyard managers and wine-making personnel in the promotion of sustainable agriculture. He has worked with clients that include Laetitia, Barnwood, Beckman, Melville, Stolpman, Gainey, Zaca Mesa, Sea Smoke, Le Bon Climat, Sine Qua Non, Rideau, Carhartt, Rusack, Westerly, Fiddlestix, Vogelzang, Andrew Murray, Evergreen, Arita Hills and Royal Oaks. With a major commitment and a second mortgage, Dave slowly decreased his vineyard consulting work. He now focuses his full-time efforts on winemaking for CORE, the hands-on management of Alta Mesa Vineyard and facilitating the wine sales. Becky Corey began her interest in the wine industry while still attending high school in Temecula, California. She worked in the Culinary Department at Callaway Winery in addition to regular events for a local caterer specializing in winery functions. Next, she traveled to Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo for a B.S. in Agricultural Business and a concentration in Marketing. Working for a small local restaurant, catering companies, and a wine shop during college were valuable connections to the enjoyment of food and wine. She was one of the first students to participate in the Cal Poly Wine Marketing Certificate program. This exposure to Central Coast wineries eventually landed her a job at Byron Winery in the Santa Maria Valley where she worked for rune years in multiple areas. In May of 2002, Becky accepted a position at Laetitia Vineyard & Winery in Arroyo Grande as Director of Public Relations where she remained for 2 and a half years. Next, she pursued a consulting business specializing in winery hospitality and visitor programs while easing into a full-time workload for CORE. This includes much of the accounting, compliance, sales and marketing aspects of the two person operation. Her most significant contribution to CORE has been in the label design, including the use of her original artwork. She also holds the prestigious title of "Employee of the Month". Read less
