During the first four years that my wife, Stephanie, and I had the opportunity to spend in the San Francisco Bay area, we developed a passion for wine. The explosive richness of a well made Napa Cabernet unleashed something within me. I became enthralled with wine-- simple as that. Football had guided us here, to "wine country" as my boys would say, and in those years we met new friends and explored Napa. The pure physical beauty of "the valley" drew us in.

I couldn't let go of the idea of one day operating a winery--the thought kept lurking in the back of my mind. While playing for Oakland, I had the opportunity to meet Jeff Smith of Hourglass (it's tiny by production, but one of the great cabernets of Napa Valley). Jeff is a crazy Raider fan (not the painted face type, but a fanatic nonetheless) who sent me some of his cabernet. Unbeknownst to him, I was already an Hourglass fan and was thrilled to find the package on my doorstep. We struck up an immediate friendship and would go on to have great dinners and taste a lot of Napa wine together over the next few years. When I decided I wanted to pursue my passion in the wine industry, Jeff introduced me to a childhood friend of his, Rob Lawson, an amazing winemaker. In the early days of "cult" winemaking in Napa Valley.

From those early conversations, I found we shared a common philosophy: a humble approach to making the best wines possible and a desire to over-deliver at every stage. Forget the hype, the glitzy style and the exaggerated price, let's do something spectacular yet subtle. I had found the perfect project!

The project took an ironic and fateful twist when Jeff suggested we use a name he had conceived for a project he had abandoned -- Mirror. Because my last name shares the same spelling as the phonetic spelling for mirror (mirer), I have often been referred to as Rick "Mirror." The parallel was too good to pass up and the name stuck. The Mirror Wine Company was born.
