intelligence for the Wine conSUMer by Len Napolitano

How does wine color change over time?
Guessing a person’s age based only upon their appearance can be a difficult and delicate challenge. With wine, the guessing game is only slightly easier, yet without the risk of embarrassment to you or the subject. As wine ages in bottle its color passes through a series of stages of maturity. Upon examination in a glass tilted at an angle against a white background, a typical young red wine that is less than three years old has a dense purple center, lessening in intensity toward the rim. Over the next 5-10 years, the wine color will transition toward deep red in the center, and slowly evolve into a reddish-brown color. Very mature red wines will show an even greater degree of brown in the center and have a rim color of tawny brown. Throughout the years of aging, from youthful purple to mature brown, the color pigments in red wine precipitate with the tannins and form into sediment at the bottom of the bottle. That is an indication that a wine needs to be decanted before serving. Certain white wines also mature with time and reveal their age with a change in color. White Burgundy from France and some California Chardonnays are two examples. Whereas red wines transition from a dark, dense color to a paler shade of red-brown, the coloring of white wines will go in the opposite direction, going from a pale straw color to amber-gold. The color of wine, and its change over time, also depends on several other factors other than age. The particular variety of grape, the length of time the grape skins are in contact with the grape juice during and after fermentation, and the amount of time the wine spends aging inside an oak barrel all contribute to a wine’s intensity of color in its youth and its subsequent development over time.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWS

Wine Garage – Wine Shop ... or Winery?
Most readers have learned over the years that some of the best wine-deals in Napa Valley can be found at the Wine Garage in Calistoga. When Todd and Joy Miller moved to Napa Valley in 2001, they were surprised to find that they could hardly find any wines for less than $45 a bottle. Then they went to a dinner party at a winemaker’s home, and were shocked to discover that many winemakers couldn’t afford to drink the wines they made. That’s when the Millers decided to open the first wine shop in Napa Valley that only carried wines under $25 a bottle. So in 2003, Todd Miller swapped his corporate necktie for jeans and boots and started scouring Northern California for great, undiscovered wines to offer at his new wine shop, the Wine Garage in Calistoga. Miller drove the roads less traveled, meeting with winemakers, walking in their vineyards and tasting their grapes, barrel samples and finished wines. The winemakers, tickled to have a real, live wine buyer at their winery, shared stories with Miller over a glass of wine at the dinner table. The Miller’s started a wine club three years ago shipping six bottle shipments for $100. Well, the club was so successful that last year even Rachael Ray heard about it and featured the Wine Garage on her Tasty Travels show on the wine country. Way back in 2003, when Todd was getting permits for the store he had a vision of selling wine right from the barrel in half gallon jugs just like they do in France and Italy. To do that he needed an out right winery license and permit. He got them – much to the shock of the local winery folks because that kind of thinking was unheard of in Napa. You can’t be a “winery” and a “wine shop” at the same time in the same place. No. Well actually yes, you can … under the right circumstances. The jug program was originally delayed due to the success of the wine club but Todd did hire a winemaker and set off trying to find deals on grapes just like he had on case goods. He drove around after harvest and wrote down what vineyards still had fruit on the vine that was unsold. He sought help from his many winemaker and vineyard manager friends. He found deals. He and his winemaker, Massimo Monticelli – a former assistant winemaker at Silver Oak – made some wine. Good wine. Todd found some Cabernet grapes up on Diamond Mountain back in 2006 from a grower that was nervous about a rain storm coming in right during the peak of harvest. He cut a deal. Then he made another deal on some Zinfandel and then later on some Syrah. After 18

months in barrel the wine is ready. Go taste it for yourself, for free. The Cabernet from the Diamond Mountain section of Napa gets very expensive – up to $275 per bottle from one winery – but the vineyard Todd found was across the road from the boundary of the Diamond Mountain AVA and sold for less money because you couldn’t put “Diamond Mountain” on the label. The Wine Garage “Hillside” Cab sells for $45. It is yummy, too. Big and rich, dark in the glass, smooth tannins, ripe fruit, chocolate covered coffee beans comes to mind. The Zin and Syrah are equally good and sell for less than the Cab, $30 and $25, respectfully. The Joy Ride is a white blend of Albarino, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Muscat Canelli. The wine was fermented completely dry in stainless steel tanks without malolactic fermentation. The nose is extremely fragrant with white peach, apricot, meyer lemon and jasmine. The body is full with generous weight on the mid palate and a rich, silky mouthfeel. There is surprising acidity on the clean and crisp finish. This is a perfect wine for a wide variety of foods which include sushi, cracked crab, lemon chicken and many cheeses. Fill ’er up with wine “pumped” into the half-gallon jugs from the specially designed gas station nozzles. Two different Wine Garage blends are offered and filled to order, one Bordeaux based (read: Cab) and one Rhone (Syrah) and are selling for $29.99 per half gallon jug that you fill yourself. Visit Wine Garage at 1020 Foothill Blvd. (Highway 29) in Calistoga; open every day from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. For more information, call (707) 942-5332 or visit the website at www.winegarage.net.

B.R. Cohn Winery Garners Double Gold at 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
2007 Olive Hill Estate Cabernet Receives Top Honor
Bruce Cohn was proud to announce that the 2007 B.R. Cohn Olive Hill Estate Cabernet Sauvignon received a double gold at the 2011 San Francisco Wine Competition. This Sonoma Valley Cabernet is the only double gold winner from Sonoma County. The long, warm 2007 growing season, along with a very low crop and smaller concentrated berries yielded one of B.R. Cohn’s best Cabernets this decade. The 2007 vintage was aged for 24 months in only the finest tight grain French oak, and expertly made by B.R. Cohn winemaker Tom Montgomery. A bouquet of fine oak, anise and mint combine with supple tannins and a long finish to produce a well-balanced rich full-bodied Cabernet that will age well for years to come. B.R. Cohn Winery has consistently produced one of the premier Cabernets in California from the Olive Hill Estate Vineyards in the heart of the Sonoma Valley. Underground natural hot springs warm the soil, and gentle ocean breezes create a unique micro-climate perfectly suited for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. “We are very pleased by this award as it brings into focus the consistently high quality of grapes grown on our Olive Hill estate and the high level of winemaking at B.R Cohn,” enthused owner Bruce Cohn. “Since 1984, the Olive Hill estate grown Cabernet continues to be one of the top Cabernets from Sonoma Valley.” Looking forward over the September 23-26 weekend, B.R. Cohn Charity Events will be presenting the Silver Anniversary 25th Annual B.R Cohn Charity Events Fall Music Festival, Charity Auction/Celebrity Chef Wine Dinner and Golf Tournament. Over the years the event has raised nearly $6 million for deserving charities and has featured some of the biggest names in music. For more information visit www.brcohn.com. B.R. Cohn Winery is located at 15000 Sonoma Highway 12 in Glen Ellen. The tasting room is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Founded in 1984 by Bruce Cohn, the estate winery is known for its critically acclaimed, worldclass, ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir and award-winning gourmet estate olive oils, vinegars and gourmet specialty food products. For more information call: 1-800-330-4064 or for other information: www.brcohn.com.

Jay Corley & Sons

Corley Family Monticello Vineyards
No matter how long you’ve lived in or visited wine country, it’s still a challenge to visit all the wineries, right? Because you develop a list of favorites that you must visit every trip and there’s only so much time… That’s why it’s always a thrill to discover a new favorite, or an old favorite, as you will when you drop in at 40-year-veteran Monticello Vineyards on Big Ranch Road in Napa. Jay Corley came to Napa Valley in 1969 with the spirit of a pioneer, intent on finding some land to grow his favorite varietals. Jay Corley was a grower only until 1980, when he hired a winemaker and started to produce wine, too. Corley was a great admirer of Thomas Jefferson, who was not only a founding father but also the United States first great connoisseur. He honored the third president by naming the winery Monticello Vineyards after Jefferson’s mountaintop home in Charlottesville, Virginia. In 1984, the Corleys built the Jefferson House, their version of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello on the Home Ranch that is now used to entertain guests. Jay Corley has since passed the reins of the vineyards and winery to three of his sons: Kevin, winegrower and president; Stephen, who everything the Corleys produce from their estate vineyards in Napa Valley. The real treat is to get downstairs in “The Cellar of The Jefferson House” and taste in “The Library” or “The Reserve Room.” Also, guests at Monticello often get a chance to do some “barrel tasting on the fly,” during weekends (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) before noon with a comparative sampling of Cabernet Sauvignon from three different estate vineyards. The Corleys love to tailor tastings to their guests’ preferences (with appropriate advance notice), so don’t be shy about telling them what you like. They also like to show off their library and library wines in a “vertical” format. Slip into the comfortable black leather chairs and enjoy a flight of Cabernet Sauvignon, some Merlot or their very popular Corley Proprietary Red Wine. oversees marketing and administration; and Chris, the winemaker.

B Cellars Blends Varietals to Develop Distinct Flavors
When B Cellars (www.bcellars.com) founder Jim Borsack first encountered his partner Duffy Keys at a fourth of July barbecue in 2002, both executives were exploring new life paths in the wine business. Over a drop of the good stuff, of course, their journeys became intertwined when they discovered that they not only shared the same tastes in wine but were also on parallel missions to acquire vineyard property. In the spring of 2003, they scrapped their solo endeavors, formed B Cellars, and got serious about structuring a first-rate wine company predicated upon two absolute principles: first, to produce exceptional artisan wines, season after season, by employing a multi-vineyard strategy, and second, to develop distinct flavors by blending wines from mutually complementary varietals. Not long after they met the third key player, Kirk Venge named “One of the Top 20 New Winemakers in the World” by Food & Wine Magazine (October 2005). Kirk brought with him a 37-year winemaking legacy via his father, Nils, and a keen understanding of the Napa appellation. A bond was established almost immediately. All team members were in concert with the idea of blending the finest red wines from the Napa Valley Appellation, and Kirk was given the mandate to create three proprietary blends of consummate quality from year to year. The B Cellars name and logo stand for a commitment to seasonless excellence. The letter “b” and the degree symbol (º) refer to brix, a

wine term which defines the optimal sugar/alcohol content in grape juice that indicates the potential for greatness. B Cellars is committed to the artisan approach, creating perfectly balanced and complex wines. Taste the wines at the B Cellars tasting room, 400 Silverado Trail in Calistoga; open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (707) 709-8787 or visit the website at www.bcellars.com.

Benefits of Joining the Vezer Family Vineyard Wine Club
As Frank Vezer says with great pride, “The 2006 and 2007 vintages of Vezer Cabs and Zins rock the house.” In the last 18 months, both in the major national and international competitions, Vezer has won gold, double gold and tied for “Best in Class for North Central Coast Appellation.” Only some of the finest restaurants and wine shops in the country carry Vezer, and only by special arrangement. The wines range from $50 to $100 retail, but wine club members get a great discount and a guaranteed of allocations. If you try to get this wine anywhere else – if you can even find it – you can expect to pay close, to or more than, $200 per bottle. The winery has discovered that when people join they do not let their membership go. In fact, Vezer has one of the highest club retentions of all time. There are many reasons to join other than the award-winning wine shipments and the benefits that give you VIP status and recognition. There’s ambiance that you simply cannot get anywhere else, free tastings for up to four to six people, a private tasting room and club room onsite, ATV tours, free wine club pick-up parties with live music, exceptional food and wine served right from the barrels. Winter pick-up parties are usually barrel burning events, roasting linguica, Hungarian Paprika Bacon and sausages from all over the world, accompanied by hearty Zins, some seductive Cabernets, Petite Sirah and Barrel Room Select Blends. And try roasting smores over the open fire while tasting some of the finest white and ruby Ports. At the spring and summer pick-up parties there are outdoor movies, barbecues and live music in the gardens, either at the Private Ranch or the small Western Village of Mankas Corner. (The Vezer’s bought Mankas Corner, in its entirety, several years back and renovated into a European-style oasis. Here you feel like you were on the set with Russell Crowe in the movie “A Good Year.”) Throughout the year there are special concerts and formal dinners at the winery and at the private ranch. Just imagine one of America’s greatest tenors starting with the ballet “Besame Mucho” as the light slowly turns its focus on the star standing in the middle of the vineyard, secluded in a private mile-long valley owned by the Vezer’s, then all the sudden this beautiful blond in a cobalt blue gown starts on the hillside nearby with an instrumental solo with her electric violin that simply resonates throughout the valley. Just as the sommelier pours you a wine right from a magnum of one of Vezer’s private reserves, all while enjoying wild boar, Moroccan chicken or filet mignon. As owner Frank Vezer says, “It is truly the opportunity of a lifetime, and it is here for you to enjoy!” The wine club, due to the limited production and quaint private settings is anticipated to be capped at 1,000 members. The Club consists of 250 spots for Chieftains – VIP Chairmen’s, and 750 Elite members and these two quotas are quickly filling up. Stop by and visit the Vezers and join either club at the tasting room or you can even join online at www.vezerfamilyvineyard.com.

WINE COUNTRY NEWS | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Insignia and Backus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Two Award-Winning Wines from Joseph Phelps Vineyards
Joseph Phelps Vineyards has long produced world-class award-winning wines and we take special pride in our two Cabernet Sauvignon based wines: our flagship wine Insignia and the Backus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. These two wines represent opposite ends of the spectrum in approaches to winemaking: the art of blending vineyards and varietals versus a single-vineyard approach. Insignia represents the art of the blend: the best blend from what our estate vineyards located throughout Napa Valley can produce and the best blend of available estate Bordeaux varietals in any given vintage. Backus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon represents the best of what a single vineyard can produce year after year, and from a very unique terroir. When Joe Phelps envisioned the term “Insignia,” it was to represent the finest lots of Bordeaux grape varietals available from each vintage. Originally sourced from the best grower fruit, beginning with the 1990 vintage Insignia was produced primarily from estategrown grapes in the Stags Leap District and Rutherford Bench – two of the most desirable sources for Cabernet Sauvignon in California. Since the 2004 vintage, Insignia has been crafted entirely from Estate Vineyards. In its 35 years of existence, Insignia has consistently ranked among the top wines in California, if not the world. Our 2007 Insignia, released September 1, 2010, received 98 points from Robert Parker, Jr.’s Wine Advocate, 96 points from Wine Spectator, 94 points from Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, 94 points from Wine Enthusiast, 95 points from James Suckling and 96 points from Connoisseur’s Guide to California Wine. Since the release of the first Insignia vintage in 1974, it has received 90 points or greater in every vintage but two. And since 1990, Insignia has been rated 90 points or higher every year by both Wine Spectator and Robert Parker, Jr.’s The Wine Advocate. In fact, The Wine Spectator has named Insignia its #1 Wine of the Year (2002 vintage), #3 Wine of the Year (1994 vintage), and #5 Wine of the Year (1997 vintage) and it has been designated a Cellar Selection five times in addition to the “Top 100” awards. Located on the southeastern corner of Silverado Trail and Oakville Cross Road, the Backus Vineyard has long been known for its iron-rich, steeply-terraced hillside soil and exceptional fruit. A picturesque, copperroofed stone smokehouse sits in the midst of the vineyard and is visible from the Silverado Trail. In December of 1996, after having held a long-term lease on the property since 1977, Joseph Phelps Vineyards purchased the entire 45-acre parcel. Subsequent development increased plantings to 21.5 acres and all of the work was done by hand. No tractors, trucks or ATVs were utilized in the preparing and planting of the vineyard. Workers used shovels and picks, pounded stakes by hand and pick-axed through rock to lay and bury irrigation lines, end posts and trellis wiring. Backus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is distinctive for producing flavors and aromas of dark chocolate, black fruit, graphite and

minerals, followed by lush, sweet and lengthy tannins. The 2007 Backus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was rated 97 points from Robert Parker, Jr.’s The Wine Advocate, 96 points by James Suckling, 97 points and “Wine of the Year” from Connoisseur’s Guide to California Wine, 95 points from Wine Enthusiast and 96 points from Wine Spectator. This limited production wine is available exclusively through our hospitality guest center.

Tastings and Seminars at Joseph Phelps Vineyards
We offer a total of five different seminars, which are semi-private tastings, hosted in the Great Hall by appointment only. These tastings include a sampling of current releases and our flagship wine, Insignia. Seminar-style tastings are held weekdays at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and weekends at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Each of these popular tastings embraces a wide variety of topics geared to both the novice and those with broader knowledge. All are semi-private (limited to 12 guests) and last 90 minutes. Cost is $40 per person for all seminars except the Insignia Blending and Single Vineyard Cabernet Seminars which are $60 per person.

Ehlers Estate’s is honoring this classic match all month long, and to partake you just need to give the winery a call to set up an appointment. You’ll swoon over the pairings, which include the Ehlers Estate Cabernet Franc with Woodhouse Thai Ginger; the Ehlers Estate Cabernet Sauvignon “1886” with Woodhouse Honey Chocolate, and the Ehlers Estate Merlot with Woodhouse Wild Cherry Chocolate. It’s a natural to celebrate these two hearthealthy palate pleasers at Ehlers Estate, a winery whose entire profits go to the Leduqc Foundation, a highly regarded, not-for-profit foundation dedicated to funding international cardiovascular research. Jean and Sylviane Leducq first purchased the historic Ehlers Vineyard in 1985. By 2001, the Leducqs had added some neighboring vineyard parcels to create an estate of more than 40 acres. original stone winery, circa 1886, which now serves as tasting-central for Ehlers Estate. A recent makeover in the tasting room has made the place positively cushy, with three separate “living rooms” where visitors can sit and relax, plus two handcrafted farmhouse tables that can accommodate groups up to 12. In addition to private wine tastings at Ehlers Estate, currently there are also wine and food pairings available and a tour of the estate, organic and biodynamic vineyards, complete with a stop in the barrel room. Here you can taste the future of Ehlers Estate with a barrel sample then end with a sit down wine and Woodhouse Chocolate pairing that includes the very popular and small production 2008 Cabernet Franc! To make a reservation for “Perfectly Paired Wine and Chocolate,” which includes a tour of the beautiful estate, barrel tasting and a small gift box of chocolates, call Ehlers Estate at (707) 963-5972.

Today the estate vineyards are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Sauvignon Blanc. The Ehlers Estate wines are all estategrown – the winery doesn’t buy or sell grapes. It’s also farmed organically and biodynamically, with a full-time, year-round staff of about 12 charged with shepherding the fruit from vine to bottle. Ehlers Estate’s impressive wines are made under the meticulous eye of Kevin Morrisey, whose resume includes stints at Château Pétrus, the legendary bordeaux house in Pomerol, as well as Stags’ Leap Winery and Etude. The heart of the estate is Bernard Ehlers

RAS Galleries
Even owner Ronda Schaer could not have envisioned that her affection for the little village of Yountville would someday blossom into a full-blown love affair. “This is a town that you can get your arms around.” Twenty years ago she did just that. With the opening of her now famous art gallery, RAS Galleries, Ronda has embraced her community and graced it with one of its most successful and admired businesses. It was her passion for art, and glass in particular, that moved Ms. Schaer to open a gallery. “I have always been drawn to glass.” But it was the work of American glass artists that really captured her heart. Representing more than two hundred American artists, the gallery has become one of the premiere venues in which to experience the drama, imagery and vision of this artistic medium. The gallery also features the work of some extremely gifted fine artists, with original oil paintings from artists throughout California and the Pacific Northwest, as well as the Eastern Seaboard and point in between. The whimsical chefs of ceramic artist, Cynthia Hipkiss are also a favorite of collectors. Says Ronda, “I created RAsgalleries with a singular focus on Original American Art, primarily Art Glass, my personal passion. And I’m proud that after twenty years in the same Yountville, Napa Valley location, the passion remains.” RASgalleries is located at 6540 Washington Street, next to Bouchon in Yountville and is open daily from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Tuesday by appointment. Phone (707) 9449211.

Plan for a Nature Break at Old Faithful Geyer
by Christine Piccin
When wine touring has tired you out, take a short detour from Highway 29 beneath the lofty peak of Mt. St. Helena, for a nature break at Old Faithful Geyser of California. Centered in a small, grass-hemmed pond, the geyser begins coughing puffs of steam which dissolve into the warm afternoon air. Then it starts to gurgle and bubble like a witch’s cauldron. Suddenly it sends up a few spurts three or four feet high. After a few minutes of playful squirting, it erupts. It’s as if someone has opened a fire hydrant straight into the sky. A column of 350-degree hot water spouts from the rocky source, backlit by the sun. As it peaks, the steaming water fans out into miniscule droplets that fall like shimmering diamond dust then disappears, leaving the pond as calm and serene as it was before the show began. Hot springs are numerous but there are only a handful of geysers in the world that can be relied on to erupt predictably and repeatedly. Old Faithful Geyser of California is one of those. A series of panels plus a video room explain the mysteries of California’s Old Faithful. The geyser is located at 1299 Tubbs Lane off Hwy. 29 in Calistoga and is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call (707) 942-6463 or visit www.oldfaithfulgeyser.com.

5th Annual California’s Artisan Cheese Festival
Saturday night’s “Curds, Cooks & Cuvees” dining event features local chef’s cheese-inspired dishes paired with top wines and a dessert station that includes soft-serve sundaes.
The 5th annual California’s Artisan Cheese Festival kicks into high gear this year with a slew of new Saturday Seminars, hands-on cheesemaking workshops, chef demonstrations, and the bustling sampling of new cheeses, foods, wines and brews under the Sunday Marketplace tent, plus all of the old favorites that keep attendees coming back for more! One of our most popular events is Saturday night’s “Curds, Cooks & Cuvees” roaming feast. This hot ticket event pairs artisan cheesemakers with top wine country chefs for a perfect culinary collaboration. To go one step further each incredible dish will be paired with a top vintner for a night of complete cheese and wine satisfaction. Festival favorite chef Duskie Estes (Zazu and Bovolo) returns to join Jeff Mall (Zin Restaurant), Nick Demarest (Harvest Moon), Janine Falvo (The Lodge at Carneros) and Sheamus Feeley (Farmstead) to create cheese-centric dishes paired with wines from sponsoring winemakers: Keller Estate Winery, Handley Cellars, Fortress Vineyards, Kokomo Winery, Paul Matthew Vineyards and Sonoma Portworks. There will also be a panini station that features Laura Werlin sampling recipes from her upcoming book, Grilled Cheese, Please! Laura will be pairing her delectable bites with wines from Gloria Ferrer Winery. No dining experience would be complete without a sweet ending and we will not disappoint. Our dessert station features artisan chocolates, dessert wines, port, bubbly, and for the first time ever: a Straus Family Creamery soft-serve sundae bar. Also ranking high on the most-popular events list in the weekend’s lineup is Sunday’s Marketplace. Each year we’ve had to expand the tent to accommodate more attendees and this year is no exception. More than 65 artisan producers will sample their local hand-crafted cheeses, delectable accoutrements, boutique wines and artisan-brewed beers. On tap again this year is the popular Mugnaini wood-fired pizza oven churning out artisan cheese-topped pies. Sunday’s Marketplace also features a variety of chef demonstration including Mary Karlin’s Fresh Cheesemaking from her soon to be released book, Artisan Cheesemaking at Home and Kristine Kidd (former food editor of Bon Appetit) showcasing a recipe from her new book, Weeknight Fresh and Fast. Chef Jacquelyn Buchanan, Culinary Director of Laura Chenel’s Chèvre, shares secrets of easy recipes with goat cheese. The weekend lineup of Saturday Seminars features industry leaders such as Janet Fletcher, Lassa Skinner, Colette Hatch and Daphne Zepos. These interactive, taste-driven seminars offer an array of educational topics such as the foundational “Cheese and Wine Pairing” and the exploratory “California’s Rare Beauties” to the immensely popular “Cheese and Beer” and the effervescent, yet sophisticated “Bubbles and Brie”. New this year is an allday farm-to-table Saturday Seminar that begins with a farm tour and finishes up with a hands-on cheesemaking class. The Friday Karen Preuss, Photography Farm Tours continue to be a sold-out success of interest to future cheesemakers and inquiring cheese lovers. “By inviting our festival guests to visit local dairies and cheesemakers, we further the nonprofit festival’s mission to support and sustain our state’s daily and agricultural community,” said Lynne Devereux, executive director of the festival. The festival closes out with Monday’s Trade Day (for professionals; invitation only), which features Ruth Reichl sharing her vision of cheese in retail, restaurants and homes. Ruth will be interviewed by author, consultant, and cheese expert Clark Wolf. The full schedule of events is posted on the website and tickets are now on sale, www.artisancheesefestival.com/index.html. Follow them on Facebook: www.facebook.com/pages/Californias-Artisan-CheeseFestival/176793496500.

Bubbles for Boobies Event Raises Funds for Breast Cancer
J. Keverson Winery Launches 2007 Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Wine with February Fund Raiser
J. Keverson Winery in Healdsburg is launching their 2007 Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Wine on Saturday February 12 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., with an appetizer and sparkling wine event to raise money for breast cancer. The entire $25 ticket price for the “Bubbles for Boobies” event and the proceeds from all bottles of Transitions, their 2007 Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Wine, will be donated by the winery to the Breast Cancer Society. “Our task was to find a name for our ’07 sparkling wine,” Diane Hazlewood said. “For several reasons we gravitated to “Transition.” Our youngest child was off to college and we were certainly in a time of transition. During the label design my sisters-in-law experienced the pain of losing her younger sister to
TO HEALDSBURG TO GEYSERVILLE HEALDSBURG GEYSERVILLE

breast cancer. Such a devastating disease should not happen to any woman and her family. After reflecting on how many women we knew that have been diagnosed with

breast cancer, we decided to make our label pink and to give the profits from the sale of each bottle to The Breast Cancer Society.” The winery has also created pink and black “Bubbles for Boobies” T-shirts and caps that are sold online with proceeds also going to the fight breast cancer. The pink bottle label and fundraiser fit well with the sparkling wine which features pleasing aromas of strawberries, raspberries, and honey. The Blanc de Noirs has a bright crispness that complements its delicate flavors of strawberry, cherry and green apple. “Bubbles for Boobies” is limited to 75 guests and reservations can be made online at www.JKeverson.com. More information about Transition, the February fundraiser or J. Keverson Winery is available online and by calling the tasting room at (707) 4843083 or visiting at 53 Front Street in Healdsburg.

Sausal Winery’s New Old Vine Zinfandel
Well new vintage that is.
Sausal Winery, located in the heart of Alexander Valley, has been bottling Zinfandel from some of the valley’s oldest vines since 1973. What started as one estate at Old Vine Zinfandel has now evolved into three; each representing the age of the vines from which they are produced. Presidents Day Weekend, Sausal Winery will release the 2008 vintage of their Family Old Vine Zinfandel. This wine is produced from vines that average 50 years of age. These are the youngest of Sausal’s estate Zinfandel vines. While you are there, try this wine alongside their other estate Zinfandels: Sausal Private Reserve Zinfandel from 90 year old vines and Sausal Century Vines Zinfandel from vines over 130 years old. And don’t miss the 2006 Sausal Cabernet Sauvignon also making its debut Presidents Day weekend. Sausal Winery is located at 7370 the tasting room. Simple, like the winery, the tasting room is not a mini-mall teeming with wine country merchandise. There is only some nice logo clothing and some sleeping and scratching stations that exist for the pleasure of the two winery cats, Sophie and Gypsie, who wander in and out as the mood takes them. What you’re there for is a treasure trove of old-vine-Zinfandels, plus some Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, all from the estate-owned vineyard that surround the winery. All the Zinfandels are dry-farmed for added fruit intensity and the oldest vines are head trained in the traditional manner, as you would expect. Picnickers are welcome to enjoy themselves on a trellised patio shaded by luscious grape vines, a traditional Italian touch. The winery is located just a few miles east of the charming town of Healdsburg. For more information, call 1-800-5002285.

Sausal Winery’s Presidents Day Release February 19-21, 10am -4pm Food & Wine Specials
Highway 128, Healdsburg. Follow Highway 128 along the eastern edge of the Alexander Valley to the winery, then down the winery’s driveway to a rustic, barn-red wooden building with a trellised porch that houses

Meadowcroft Wines’ “Songwriters in Sonoma” Series
The second show in the newly inaugurated series Adam Traum “Songwriters In Sonoma” is set for Thursday, February 17 at 7 p.m. in the Meadowcroft Wines (www.meadowcroftwines.com) tasting room at 23574 Arnold Drive/Highwayy 121 at Cornerstone Sonoma. The show will feature singer-songwriters Glenn Carter, Jeff Falconer and Adam Traum who will be performing in-the-round. Tickets are $10 per person and include a glass of wine. Reservations for the show may be made by calling the tasting room at (707) 934-4090. The Songwriters In Sonoma series is booked and hosted by Gerard Serafini, owner of Sonoma Valley Music Store. This is a 21and-over show. “Our first show was a huge success and we are looking forward to this series becoming the anchor of all of our future music endeavors,” said Tom Meadowcroft, owner and winemaker of Meadowcroft Wines. “As the saying goes, ‘it all begins with a song,’ which is why we wanted to begin our musical journey with a songwriter series.” The inspiration behind many of the songs on British singer-songwriter Glenn Carter’s recent album “Redwood Road” came after meeting and eventually marrying his new Californian wife, Pamela. Songs about life, love, failure, joy and humor are what makes this eclectic troubadour a must see performer. Johnny Cash, the Beatles, Sting, John Mellencamp and James Taylor are a few of the influences that have helped Glen hone his songwriting craft. Singer-songwriter Jeff Falconer ‘s hope is to give each audience a full spectrum experience, acknowledging our human predicament, but at the same time highlighting our remarkable ability to self-correct by embracing our imperfections and cutting ourselves and each other some slack! Falconer, who played his first gig at age eight at the Mendocino County Fair, has released three solo CD’s as well as a fourth release with his acoustic duo, Jaydub and Dino. Adam Traum grew up in a musical family. His father, Happy Traum, a mainstay of the Greenwich Village folk scene, turned Adam on to blues, bluegrass and folk styles. His present-day influences include Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, John Hiatt, Steve Earle and Mississippi John Hurt. He has three instructional DVD guitar lessons on Homespun Tapes, and his CD, “Meant To Be,” celebrates his diversity highlighting songwriting, which incorporates story-driven songs, humor and catchy guitar riffs. Meadowcroft Wines includes the Meadowcroft, Magito and Thomas Henry labels. Winemaker Tom Meadowcroft also makes the wines for the Foyt Family Wines (www.foytfamilywines.com). There are presently 16 wines being poured at the tasting room including the just released 2008 Meadowcroft Sangiovese, the 2008 Meadowcroft Zinfandel and the 2008 Thomas Henry Zinfandel. The tasting room is part of the Cornerstone Sonoma (www.cornerstonesonoma.com) complex that features 22 worldclass gardens, a gourmet café, art galleries and cutting edge design shops all set among acres of vineyards. Meadowcroft Wines is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The venue is available for private parties, private tastings, wine dinners and other events. With plenty of free parking at Cornerstone Sonoma, the area is a perfect setting for any type of event, both indoors or outdoors. For information or to make reservations, call (707) 9344090.

Claudia Springs Welcomes Two Winemakers from Michigan
The Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association will be hosting the 6th annual International Alsace Varietals Festival on February 12th and 13th. Winemakers from around the world will be on hand pouring Alsatian varietals including Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Muscat. Claudia Springs Winery, located at mile marker 16 on scenic Highway 128, near the town of Navarro has invited two award-winning Michigan wineries to pour at a very special open house on Sunday, February 13th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sean O’Keefe, Chateau Grand Traverse, and Spencer Stegenga, Bowers Harbor Vineyards, will join Claudia Springs winemaker Bob Klindt for a day of great wines and food. “We are honored to have two of my favorite winemakers join us. It will be a great way for folks to try different expressions of the same grapes we have grown here in the Anderson Valley for years.” Claudia Springs Winery Chef François de Mélogue will prepare traditional Alsatian dishes like Choucroute Garni and Flammenkuche and innovative Asian dishes designed to dazzle your taste buds. Chef de Mélogue said “My grandmother was from Alsace, the region in France that has been parts of both Germany and France over the last few centuries. An off dry white from Alsace goes exceptionally well with the salty tangy sauerkraut in Choucroute.” Sean will be pouring his 2009 Ship of Fools Pinot Blanc/Pinot Gris/Noir blend, 2008 Lot 49 Riesling, 2008 Pinot Noir Vin Gris and 2009 Gruner Veltiner. Spencer will be pouring his Block II Dry Riesling, and Bob Klindt will be pouring the 2009 Klindt Estate Pinot, his double gold winning Viognier from Lolonis Vineyard fruit, several Mendocino Zinfandels and a brand new red field blend called Vittorio’s Secret. “Early Italian immigrants were pioneers of the California Wine Industry. Their favorite grape was Zinfandel, which found its way from Croatia via Italy to California. They recognized that Zinfandel could often be enhanced with small amounts of compatible varietals, and in their wisdom, interplanted them with the Zinfandel. Carrignane, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Alicante and Mataro were among the favorites. When Vittorio Testa planted his vineyard in Calpella more than 50 years ago he followed this tradition. Amidst the dominate Zinfandel, he planted Carrignane and Petite Sirah. However a scattering of Grenache and Barbera has also been identified. Who knows what other secrets Vittorio’s Vineyard may hold.” The open house will occur on February 13th, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The winemakers will be on hand and delighted to answer any questions you may have. The event is open to the public and there will be a $5 fee that includes an engraved wine glass used for tasting all the wines. Claudia Springs Winery will be offering special one-day discounts, barrel samples and more to those attending. Chateau Grand Traverse is owned and operated by the O’Keefe family (Ed and his two sons, Eddie and Sean). The winery operation is a unique blend of talents – as diverse as the characteristics of their internationally award-winning family of Riesling and other white wine varietals. In 2010, the winery produced some 95,000 cases of wine from 120 acres, while purchasing another 60 acres of grapes from other growers on Old Mission Peninsula. The winery produces three brands of products including Chateau Grand Traverse, Grand Traverse Select and Traverse Bay Winery. It is the second largest winery in Michigan and often noted as being the largest Riesling wine producer east of the Mississippi. Bowers Harbor Vineyards is a family run winery located out in the city of Traverse City out on Old Mission Peninsula which is an American Vitacultural Area or AVA which is recognized throughout the world as a premium grape growing appellation. Claudia Springs Winery was founded in 1989 by Bob and Claudia Klindt in the picturesque Anderson Valley of Mendocino County, California. Bob started in 1971 as a home winemaker crafting award winning fruit wines before eventually making grape wines and purchasing Mila Handley’s house in Philo. Claudia Springs wines are made exclusively from Mendocino County vineyards with special emphasis on Anderson Valley Appellation grapes. They produce estate Pinot Noirs and Pinot Gris from vines planted by Bob and Claudia and award-winning single vineyard designated and proprietary blended Zinfandels and a limited production Viognier from premium family run vineyards in the Redwood Valley and Mendocino Ridge (1200 feet above the Pacific Ocean) Appellations. For more information, call (707) 895-3993 or visit the website at claudiasprings.com.

Barrel Tasting Weekend takes place Saturday, March 19 and Sunday, March 20, from noon to 4:30 p.m. each day at more than 30 participating Livermore Valley wineries located in the East Bay Area of Northern California (less than one hour from San Francisco) Cost for the event is $30 per person when purchased online at www.LVwine.org by March 18. $35 per person at any participating

winery during the event. Price includes a take home glass with the Livermore Valley Wine Country Logo, two days of barrel tasting at each participating winery on Saturday and Sunday, special activities and wine discounts, and a Barrel Tasting Weekend map which includes all wineries that are participating in the Barrel Tasting weekend.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | LODI

Mark Your Calendars: Lodi School Street Wine Stroll, April 15
Ten Life-Size Sculptures by Seward Johnson will Grace the Streets of Downtown Lodi
The 19th annual School Street Wine Stroll will be celebrated with the arrival of ten lifesize bronze sculptures created by internationally known artist, Seward Johnson. The sculptures will be placed throughout School Street in the historic area of downtown Lodi where the Wine Stroll takes place. More than 25 Lodi wineries will be pouring their wines in shops and boutiques on Friday, April 15, from 6 to 9 p.m. The City of Lodi, through the Arts in Public Places Funding, is sponsoring the ten sculptures to be placed on School Street in downtown Lodi from April 15 to July 15, 2011. Lodi Arts Advisory Board Member Roger Stafford said, “This is an opportunity for the Art in Public Places Committee to give to the City of Lodi an interactive form of art that will be fun and educational. This art display also provides an attraction to the downtown for Lodi residents of all ages and their out of town visitors.” The public art exhibit will feature the lifesize sculptures off world-renowned artist, Seward Johnson. One of America’s most beloved sculptors, Johnson recreates life in our times in vividly realistic bronze. At 80, Johnson has been sculpting life-like figures for over 30 years, many of which are nestled into the landscapes of public parks and private estates. His sense of humor, and affection for people, is evident in all of his works from the little girls reluctantly sharing an icecream cone, to the tenderness of a mother reading to her young child. “What I’m trying to do is draw attention to the simple pleasures, to show how much fun life is. That is why there are so many humorous details in my work.” Johnson captures moments for us. He holds up a mirror for our reflection, and it is ultimately one that will make us smile at ourselves. Details and photos of the complete collection can be found at www.sewardjohnson.com. The sculptures are on loan from The Sculpture Foundation, a charitable and educational organization dedicated to providing exhibitions and landmark public artworks for communities. Director of the Foundation, Paula Stoeke notes, “The Foundation is delighted to share these sculptures. We hope that the community will embrace the artwork and integrate the event into the fabric of Lodi, from the classrooms to the dinner table conversations.” During the School Street Wine Stroll, Lodi Appellation wineries will be paired with merchants for an evening of wine, food, shopping and entertainment. Guests can taste award-winning wines, meet the vintners and enjoy appetizers provided by hosting merchants. Lodi wineries will share their special wines and are on hand to discuss their vintages.

Rain Forest Weekends at Roaring Camp Railroad
Learn about California’s own rain forest … its forests of coastal redwoods. Roaring Camp is offering weekend excursions of the Rain Forest by rail January 1 to March 27. Located in the Santa Cruz Mountains just a few miles from the ocean, the forest flourishes in moderate temperatures and a year-round water supply provided by frequent Pacific systems and dense fog. Roaring Camp CEO Georgiana Clark says, “In winter, California’s rain forest is most dramatic. Storms whip branches; foliage glistens; and the air is filled with the aroma of California bay laurel and tanbark oak.” As guests ride at branch level through a virgin forest by steam train, fascinating information about the California coastal redwoods and forest eco-system is revealed. Trains operate Saturdays and Sundays at 12:30 pm through March 27th. Tickets are $24 adult, $17 child (2-12 years). Parking is $8. Roaring Camp is in Felton, six miles north of Santa Cruz. For information and tickets, call (831) 335-4484 or visit the website at www.roaringcamp.com.

Tasting Room of the Week:
by Laura Ness

Poetic Cellars
the spirit of the grape. With eight varieties grown in her Livermore vineyard, and three additionally sourced from local Santa Cruz Mountains vineyards, Katy makes everything from fruit-driven Chardonnay and Pinot, to rich, dense Syrah and Petite Sirah. Her signature varietal is her Mourvedre: intriguingly smoky and sexy, but her blends are really growing her fan base. The well-decorated winery tasting room offers many options for browsing for art, winerelated gifts and unique food items, including locally sourced Tabitha’s Appropriate Jams and B&R Farms apricot products. Open weekends from noon to 5pm and by appointment, the spacious tasting room and sunny courtyard beckons with plenty of tables for relaxed, unhurried tastings. You’re likely to meet either Katy herself, Joseph or Katy’s son, Zach, who helps her with forklifting of barrels, topping off, bottling labeling and so forth. Son Brett and daughter Julie also pitch in to help Mom with the neverending set of tasks, including making cute cork reindeer at Christmas. Creativity runs deep in this family: Katy’s previous careers include concert flutist and fiber artist, a talent she shares with her mother. In fact, for April Passport in the Santa Cruz Mountains, two generations of Lovell’s, including Katy’s mom, will be exhibiting their fiber crafts. When not weaving fiber, Katy enjoys weaving wine blends, like a poet loves

Katy Lovell

Sometimes, instead of throwing caution to the wind, you need to throw your GPS out the window and just trust the directions you’ll find on a winery’s website. This is one of those cases. It will serve you ill to trust the theoretical vagueness of misguided engineers at takeout-cluttered desks somewhere in Mountain View. So, before hitting the road, download the new iPhone app for the Santa Cruz Mountains wineries, or hit the Poetic Cellars website, to get the directions to this remarkably easy to find little oasis in the middle of blessedly untouched territory in the hills above Santa Cruz. Literally, it is only 11 minutes off Highway 17 from the Vine Hill exit. It only feels like forever. You’ll breathe a sigh of contented relief as you head down the driveway to Poetic Cellars: the scenery is lovely, serene and there is an unmistakable sense of finally having reached a place that is uniquely like no other. Welcome to the place where all the wine is bottled poetry, and each of the bottles bears its own unique poem inspired both by the wine inside and the woman who makes them. Katy Lovell has been making wine for 16 years, and enjoys every aspect of the process from picking the grapes to creating the labels for the bottles. Her partner, Joseph Naegele, an attorney by trade, pens poetry for each varietal or blend, matching prose to

polishing off each participle to create the perfect wordplay on the page and in your mind’s ear. The 2007 Poetic Cellars “Mantra,” a delicious blend of 45% Mourvedre, 45% Syrah and 10% Sangiovese, is a smooth, multi-layered experience of pure pleasure, balancing the racy, wild red fruits of the Mourvedre with the depth and richness of the Syrah. Spritely Sangiovese adds charming cherries and buttery smooth tannins to create a Mantra worth repeating over and over. This may become your favorite Rhone-style wine ever! Another well-woven gem is the 2007 Poetic Cellars “Ballad” Bordeaux Blend, equal parts of cassis and cigar-laden Cabernet Sauvignon, and smooth, dark chocolate Merlot, plus 10% Cabernet Franc, which provides the perfect balance of power. Low in alcohol, this restrained, elegant wine has lovely notes of lavender, dark cassis, caraway, cedar and tarragon, layered with cured Westphalian ham, dark chocolate and intriguing hints of spicy green olives. Katy will be releasing her newest blend, “Serenade,” for the winery’s two-year anniversary on Valentine’s Day. Come visit and taste bottled poetry for yourself.
