Wineology

INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER

BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What is tannin?
Wine dryness, which provides palate-like structure for
red wine, comes from tannin, a natural chemical compound
of grape skins, seeds, stems and oak. Its a key component of
red wine and, if uncontrolled, gives wine harshness and
astringency. It can do the same to wine as it does to a cup of
hot tea after it cools down make it bitter and hard to
drink.
The majority of wine tannin is extracted during juice
maceration and fermentation. Naturally, red wine, by virtue
of its longer contact time with grape skins, has significantly
more tannin, that is, dryness, than white wine. A secondary
source of tannin comes from the oak barrels in which wine
is aged. Wood tannin contributed by barrels varies,
depending on the type of oak and toasting temperature.
Tannin also acts as a wine stabilizer, helping it age longer

by protecting aroma and flavor. It enables long-term aging


in bottle, a reason why you dont find as many old white
wines as red. Typically, a Cabernet Sauvignon will show
significantly more of its dry, firm tannin at two to three
years old than it will after it has aged in the bottle for say, 10
years or longer. In extreme cases, a newly released Cabernet
can exhibit so much tannin, it becomes hard to taste any
fruit at all. As wine ages, however, tannin develops a softer,
silk-like texture, lessened by time but not so much as to lose
its capacity to preserve the wines delicate fruit component.
A red wine is at its peak for consumption when it has
reached an age with perfect balance in tannin structure and
fruit expression. Largely unpredictable to pinpoint, fine
wines are known to take years, sometimes decades, to
acquire that magical balance.

A Delicious Experience
After 5:30 p.m. Partake is much more than a restaurant
its a wine-and-food-pairing extravaganza! Its really all about
Partakes culinary team customizing dishes that pair
exceptionally well with Kendall-Jacksons wines.
There are several wonderful menu items available, and
your server will suggest the perfect wine(s) to highlight the
dishes.
If you prefer to be guided on a magical mystery tour of
wine and food pairing, I suggest the Chefs Tasting and the
From the Garden Tasting options. Each option includes five
delicious Kendall-Jackson wines, expertly paired with creative
gourmet dishes. My good friend, Rick joined me for this
adventure. He ordered the Chefs Tasting and I ordered the
From the Garden Tasting. We shared everything and it was an
amazing, delicious experience! One of the coolest things
about the tasting was that our server Matt (ask for Matt hes
fantastic!) started us off with a mystery wine, poured into
opaque black wine glasses. We couldnt tell if it was a white,
pink or red wine. Rick and I are both professional wine
judges, so we were able to correctly guess that it was a Pinot
Noir. We were then served our respective flights of wine and
food and everything was absolutely stellar. The tasting menus
are $65/$75, but well worth the experience. It is truly unique!

Kendall-Jacksons Hard-To-Find Wines


Some of the wines featured at Partake are only available
there or at Kendall-Jacksons Wine Estate & Gardens. Between
us, we tasted around a dozen wines. All of the wines were
excellent, but our favorite wines of the evening were:
- 2013 Seco Highlands Chardonnay ($35): Mouthwatering
aromas of tropical fruit, flowers and a hint of toast lead into
a delicious, richly textured mouthful of consistent flavors.
The finish is long, delicious and juicy and makes you want
another sip, and another
- 2013 Seco Highlands Pinot Noir ($52): What a gorgeous
Pinot! Aromas and flavors of cherry cola, raspberry and
spice abound, all wrapped up in a silky, sexy mouthfeel.
Partake by KJ is an experience you dont want to miss.
Really! Take my advice, make a reservation and prepare to be
wowed! Tell them, The Wine Wench sent me!

As the leaves change color and the temperature cools down, its the perfect time to celebrate
Americas natural bounty and the fall harvests of some of the countrys most talented winemakers.
Each November, a select group of top vintners commemorates the past year at Vintners Holidays,
a nationally renowned wine festival held in one of the most beautiful places on Earth Yosemite
National Park.
Celebrating 34 years in 2015, Vintners Holidays brings real winemakers not sales reps
together with attendees for a top-shelf occasion featuring fun and educational events and great
wines. Rounding out the luxurious experience, all the action takes place inside the legendary and
historic Ahwahnee hotel in the heart of Yosemite Valley.
Vintners Holidays was inspired by Californias incredible vineyards and the winemakers who
tend them with self-sacrificing devotion. Guests choose from six sessions running between
November 8 and December 3 and enjoy an intimate welcome reception with the sessions vintners,
a series of wine-tasting seminars, and a divine five-course gala dinner. The Ahwahnees Executive
Chef Percy Whatley and world-class culinary team work together to design a custom gala dinner
menu that pairs elegantly with each sessions featured wines. Youll remember the incredible flavors

and intimate atmosphere for years to come.


This famed event attracts more than 25 talented winemakers who
craft some of Californias finest wines. Throughout the sessions, youll
find well-known labels like Silver Oak and Rombauer as well as rising
stars in the wine world.
The first session of 2015 (November 810), features Frogs Leap,
a Napa Valley winery that opened in 1981. The Ahwahnee was the
first big account to carry Frog Leaps Sauvignon Blanc in 1983. In
2013, Frogs Leaps farmer Frank Leeds was named Grower of the
Year by Napa Valley Grapegrowers.
Session two (November 1112) highlights the return of
Rombauer Vineyards. Since 1982 when the winery was founded,
the Rombauer family has emphasized the joy of wine and the
importance of pairing it with great food. This is fitting since Koerner
Rombauers great aunt was Irma Rombauer, author of the renowned
The Joy of Cooking.
Spottswoode is featured in the third session (November 1517).
Spottswoode was among the first wineries to adopt organic practices
and received California Certified Organic Farmers certification in
1992. When founder and owner Mary Weber Novaks husband
passed away in 1977, she became one of the first women to run a
major Napa Valley winegrowing estate.
Session four (November 1819) welcomes Justin Winery, a Paso
Robles winery that took home the title of Best Bordeaux Blend in the
2014 San Francisco International Wine Competition. Founder Justin
Baldwin planted his first vineyard in 1981 with the mission to make
world-class Bordeaux-style blends.
Session five (November 29December 1) features Williams
Selyem Winery, chosen by Wine & Spirits Magazine as a 2014
Winery of the Year. In 2009, the winerys Litton Estate Pinot Noir was
awarded a perfect 100 points by Wine Enthusiast and was the first
Pinot Noir in North America to receive this distinction by a major
wine publication.
For session six (December 23), The Ahwahnee will welcome
back Daniel Baron from Silver Oak Cellars. Silver Oak Cellars
Cabernet Sauvignon has been called the crme de la crme of the
heady red and is consistently met with critical acclaim. It was named
one of the Years Best Cabernet Sauvignons by Wine & Spirits
Magazine in 2012.
Vintners Holidays is a lavish and tasteful experience. Youll enjoy
some of the countrys best wines in the company of great vintners and

Judds Hill Winery & MicroCrush Offers Bottle Blending Day Camp
With so many world-class wineries to visit
in Napa, its tough to narrow down your
itinerary to just a few. You visit wine country
to taste, but it is always nice to discover
new wineries that offer unique, informative
and entertaining wine-related activities that
are more than just a standard tasting.
Building your day of tastings around one
extra-special experience is a good way to get
the most out of your visit. An increasingly
popular Napa activity for small and mediumsized groups is to create, blend and bottle a
personal Napa Valley cuvee during a wine
country visit.
In 2009, the Finkelstein family of Judds
Hill had the forward-thinking idea of
creating their Bottle Blending Day Camp
experience (BBDC for short), during which
visitors to their winery, located at the
southern end of Napas Silverado Trail, can
actually craft their own, personal, Napa
Valley blend. The wines used for this
blending experience currently include barrel
lots of two Cabernet Sauvignons, each from a
different vineyard, plus a Merlot and
Cabernet Franc, all from Napa Valleys
extraordinary 2013 vintage.
Judds Hill specializes in making small lots
of hand-crafted wines for their Judds Hill

30

label, and for dozens of their Custom


MicroCrush clients. It can take years to
convert clusters of grapes into a ready-todrink bottle of red wine. Blending finished
wine, however, is a vital part of the wine
making process that can be accomplished in
a relatively short time.
These BBDC experiences are led by

extremely knowledgeable and passionate


wine educators and take about two hours to
complete. During the session, a wine
educator will guide blenders through the
intricacies of creating a wine best suited to
the tastes of the blender, explaining and
demystifying the process along the way. Once
a favored cuve has been decided upon and a

Follow us on Twitter @WineCountryTW

Wine Country This Week <<

name is chosen, the newly minted wine-blenders will


complete the process by hand-bottling, labeling and
spinning foil capsules over the bottle necks. The wine is
then ready to take home the same day!
Although these blending sessions are scheduled
regularly throughout the week for small groups, the Judds
Hill BBDC experience is also a wonderful outing for groups
ranging in size from 20 to 250. With a larger group, the
participants are divided into teams that compete to craft the
best blend as judged by an expert panel. The winning
blend is bottled and given to all participants to take with
them that day. If your group is in the Bay area but cant
quite make it up to Napa, the folks at Judds Hill have a
mobile option that brings the blending session to you! For
more details visit juddshill.com or contact the winery by
calling (707) 255-2332 or writing to info@juddshill.com.

Burger Butler Experience


Mention Napa Valley to anyone coming out to
California and invariably, one of the top stops on
their list is the famed Gotts Roadside (formerly
Taylors Refresher). Homemade egg buns, juicy
burgers oozing with melted cheese, and the
amazing sweet potato frieswho can resist
them? A bite at this once drive-up diner is
typically an hour+ queue (on a good day). But not
with the new Burger Butler Experience at
Merryvale. Skip the lines and let the burgers
come to you! After your private winery tour and

Its rare when visiting a winery to actually sit inside a barrel to taste the wine. Well, an
empty barrel of course and a very large one at that. Step into a piece of Napa Valley
history at Merryvale Vineyards and experience the legacy of its founding fathers, Ceasare
Mondavi (father of Peter and Robert) the Christian Brothers (owners in 1970s) and Bill
Harlan and partners (owners in mid-1980s). Still a family-run business today, Merryvale
Vineyards has been owned by Swiss-national Jack Schlatter since 1996 and his son, Ren
Schlatter, is now the current Proprietor & CEO. He and Senior Winemaker Sean Foster
practice the same focused innovation and finesse today as the winerys forefathers did a
generation ago. Hand-crafting their collection of highly-rated wines from the most
prestigious vineyards in Napathus paying homage to true legends of the valley.
The original stone cellars are home to massive redwood wine tanks (23,000 gallons) used

winery in Napa Valley built upon repeal of prohibition. The now-dry towering casks have

ZAPs Simply Summer Celebration Will Showcase the Complexity of Zinfandel


In Alexander Valley, foggy mornings give way to beautiful, sunny
afternoons in summertime, and on Saturday, August 15, expect
nothing less for the Zinfandel Advocate & Producers (ZAP) Simply
Summer Celebration. Hosted from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m., the Simply
Summer Celebration will be a tour-de-force for Zinfandel lovers.
During its inaugural year last summer, attendees agreed that the
event was highly successful. Over four hundred guests attended and
more than fifty wineries poured their best Zinfandel in the setting of
the iconic Lytton Springs Vineyard at Ridge Vineyards.

Sixty-Five Zinfandel Producers


This years event will feature an impressive sixty-five wineries in
the historic setting of Seghesio Family Vineyards Home Ranch
Vineyard in Alexander Valley. With wineries from local regions like
Sonoma and Napa, as well as wineries from further regions such as
the Sierra Foothills, Lodi and Paso Roblesthere will surely be a
style of Zinfandel to please every palate.

Culinary Delights
In addition, this years guests will enjoy culinary delights from
Seghesios custom mobile Jedmaster smokerBlaze. Seghesios
resident pit master, Executive Chef Peter Janiak, will fire up the grill
and provide pulled pork smoked sandwiches, feta and watermelon
salad, as well as a vegetarian option for guests to enjoy alongside their
Zinfandel.

ZAPs Heritage Zinfandel Project


As guests enter the Simply Summer Celebration outdoor tasting
lounge in the middle of the vineyard, ZAP will be pouring their
current vintage of Heritage Zinfandel, which is produced each year by
a different winemaker. The Heritage Zinfandel grapes are grown at
the UC Davis Oakville Research Station in Napa Valley, and ZAP has
been collaborating with UC Davis to provide superior Zinfandel
selections to growers as the basis for future plantings (ZAP).
The Zinfandel Heritage Vineyard Project, as ZAP calls it, is an
unprecedented collection of rare and famous Zinfandel vine cuttings
grown throughout California (ZAP). By annually allowing one
winemaker to produce wine from the grapes grown in these vineyards,
ZAP is providing Zinfandel producers with amazing fruit to turn into
high quality, limited production Zinfandel. The ZAP Heritage
Zinfandel is only offered through ZAP and poured at ZAP events, so
be sure to stop by the ZAP Heritage Zinfandel table and get a taste!
From start to finish, the Zinfandel will not stop flowing at ZAPs
Simply Summer Celebration. There promises to be Zinfandel with
ripe baked fruit flavors, lighter styles with less oak, and heavier, more
robust styles with strong tannins, noticeable spice and intense oak.
From one end of the spectrum to the other, every palate is sure to be
pleased by the complexity of this amazing varietal.
Spend a perfect summer afternoon with ZAP and discover why the
Simply Summer Celebration is a Zinfandel event not to be missed.
Tickets are $65 per person; for more information and to purchase

Trinchero Family Estates Debuts New Amador Whiskey Co. Double Barrel Bourbon
Born in Kentucky, Raised in California, Enjoyed Everywhere
Trinchero Family Estates is pleased to
announce the nationwide release of its newest
spirit, Amador Whiskey Co. Double Barrel
Bourbon. Named after the two barrel-aging
techniques employed in California and Kentucky,
the first bottling of this bourbon will debut
nationwide this summer.
The national release of the Amador Double
Barrel Bourbon compliments Amador Whiskey
Companys Ten Barrels, a limited-edition luxury
whiskey with only 10 Barrels, or 686 6-packs,
produced every year. The cocktail culture and
demand for quality spirits continues to grow.
There was such a high demand for the Amador
Whiskey Co. Ten Barrels when it first launched in
June, 2014. We listened to feedback from our
buyers, and took a classic product thats
consumed around the world and created a
distinctive blend that is on-trend, small-batch and

34

uniquely-crafted. The timing was right and we


are very proud of the quality in the bottle.
said Dave Derby, senior vice president of
marketing for Trinchero Family Estates.
To make the new Double Barrel Bourbon,
we acquired 280 barrels of exceptional
Kentucky Bourbon, aged from three-to-ten
years in charred New American Oak and
transported it to California. We then finished
the Double Barrel Bourbon with Trinchero
familys Napa Valley estate wine barrels and
bottled at 86.8 proof, added Derby. This
Kentucky-born, California-raised Bourbon is
well-balanced with complex flavors of vanilla,
oak, brown sugar and spice. This is the perfect
spirit for special occasions.
The new Amador Whiskey Company
Double Barrel has a suggested retail price of
$40 for 750mL, and is now available in select
on-premise locations and retailers nationwide

Founded in 1992, today Frank Family owns 380 acres of the finest vineyard land
in Napa Valley and has one of the biggest word-of-mouth followings in the wine
country. First constructed as the Larkmead Winery in 1884, the historic stone
building on the property was refinished with native sandstone from the nearby
hills in 1906. The massive stone edifice is considered one of the finest structures
in the Napa Valley; it appears on the National Register of Historical Places and is
listed as a Point of Historical Interest in the state of California.

During your visit, dont miss the chance to purchase some winery-exclusive, single-varietal
wines. These Winemaker Select wines come from grapes grown in Simi Winerys prestigious
Landslide Vineyard, a 172-acre estate located on Chalk Hill Road in the Alexander Valley. This
vineyard possesses such diverse microclimates and soil types that it is sub-divided into 44 distinct
blocks. It consistently produces critically acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Pinot
Noir and Chardonnay.
I tasted a few of these wines and was really impressed! The following were my favorites:
2013 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ($50): O.M.G! What a fantastic Pinot! Aromas and flavors of
black cherry, blackberry and blackberry brambles, baking spices and a hint of molasses all play
together nicely from the first mouthwatering sip, through the luscious mouthfeel and on through
the finish. A knee-weakener.
2011 Landslide Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon ($40): This is an $80 Cab in a $40 dress! What
a bargain! Classic aromas of black cherry, cassis and mocha continue as flavors in the plush,
velvety mouth and linger through the finish.
Be sure to visit this unforgettable place, taste the amazing wines and tell them The Wine Wench
sent you!

Wine Country This Week >> MENDOCINO/LAKE COUNTIES

WINESONG 2015 Mendocinos Premier Wine and Food Event Keeps It Local
For the last 31 years, the weekend after Labor Day, wine and food
aficionados from all over the country (and even the world!) have
gathered along the stunning coast of Mendocino Country to join
together for WineSong. These welcomed visitors have participated in
overwhelmingly generous ways to support the local, Mendocino
commitment to maintain its rural hospital.
In 2015, the Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation Board, in
tandem with local business people and long-time residents,
established an informal group to go local by taking on the work of
the auction chairs. Under the theme of My Mendo, My Hospital,
this dedicated group worked tirelessly to draw on their local, national
and worldwide resources to assemble an array of auction lots that
represent the best of Mendocino and the world beyond all for one
purpose: to create a show-stopping weekend on behalf of the
Mendocino Coast Hospital.
The fruits of their efforts this year brought to guests in part by
Celebrity Cruises will include travel packages to the French Alps,
Barbados, Italy and more. Local getaways hosted by such wineries as
Golden Eye and Handley. Among the wine packages will be a
collection of 52 Anderson Valley Sparkling Wines (one for every
week of the year!), verticals of Bordeaux, Dalle Valle Cabernet,
Chateauneuf du Pape (20 bottles), as well as an abundance of the
areas best Pinot Noir.
Beginning Friday, September 11, Winesong Weekend will kick off
with A Pinot Noir Celebration at Little River Inn produced in
partnership with Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association. On
Saturday, September 12, guests can stroll through the enchanting
Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens while enjoying a spectacular
assortment of wine and food from 100 highly acclaimed wineries and
50 top-notch Northern California restaurants. The glorious wine
celebration continues on into the auction tents for the main
attraction: the live and silent auctions, which is the where much
needed funds are raised for the Mendocino Coast District Hospital.

A Pinot Noir Celebration: Meet the Winemakers Friday, September 11 , 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
This illustrious event features Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley
and tastes of Little River Inns finest culinary offerings. The focus of
this celebration is to provide an opportunity to talk wine with the
winemakers themselves in an intimate setting. Evaluate new wines
and learn how classic Pinot Noir improves with age. Savor these lush
and elegant wines while you meet and mingle with the winemakers at
a seaside setting overlooking the spectacular Pacific Coast.

Wine & Food Tasting in the Gardens Saturday, September 12, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Each year, in order to offer a wide array of wines, Winesong
invites 100 highly acclaimed world-class wineries to preview their
new vintages. With producers coming from such diverse regions as
Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma, the Central Coast, Sierra Foothills,

Winegrowing Decisions

BY JOSH STEIN

Picking Decisions: Whites


When we think of the components of a finished white wine, what
comes to mind? For me, I think of bouquet, level of fruitiness,
acidity, mouthfeel, presence or absence of oak, and level of residual
sweetness. With this list of components at hand, every wine can be
reverse-engineered in terms of series of decisions made with those
end goals in mind. This is why the truism hammered into first-year
students and first-harvest cellar rats, Everything we do or do not do
has an effect on the final wine, is, indeed, a truism, not a clich. We
say it to ourselves as a reminder at every stage of the process so as
not to get lazy or take for granted each and every step of
winemaking.
When we start to make picking decisions, there seem to be lots of
variables, like variety, Brix (sugar) levels, maturity for depth of flavor
and color, upcoming weather, etc., but I start with the processing in
mind: is this going into steel or oak or something else like concrete
or food-grade plastic? Why start there amongst all the other angles
into picking objectives? Because of what is trying to be emphasized
based on the fermentation vessel. If we are using steel or another
non-wood tank, then we are seeking to preserve aroma, keep higher
acids, and develop a more citrusy, grassy, or minerally final wine.
Think of an all-steel Chardonnay, a Sauvignon Blanc, or a Pinot Gris
and youll get the idea of why we pick earlier and are less concerned
about what is developing on the skins: skin contact is going to be as
minimal as possible, generally, and the wines are going to be kept
away from oxygen and produced through low temperatures to
preserve freshness.
If, however, we are seeking to give extended skin contact ala
orange wines or extended lees and oak contact to impart body and
fullness (think oaky, buttery Chardonnay, for example), then we are
going to pick at different ripenesses, at different Brix, and after
longer hanging as the results we are looking for in the grapes come
about only through those decisions; we also need to taste random

clusters in increasing frequency as once the grapes hit 21 Brix, each


half Brix increase radically changes the mouthfeel of the juice as
acids continue to drop and sweetness increases. Then, because we
want that contact continued through fermentation and beyond, oak
is usually used in some form to add depth and body as well as help
to start or nurture secondary, malolactic fermentation because those
bacteria are resident in oak, and thus produce a transformation of
citrus notes into apple, pear, peach, and other tropical fruits in the
finished wine.
If an oak influence on aroma and a hint on the tongue are desired
without any creaminess, juice separated from the lees via racking
from vessel to vessel, ala a gravy strainer, will be paired with oak
adjuncts of any number of kinds, which allow for quite exact
recipes based on volumes and hours or days of exposure.
Conversely, if a strong mouthfeel of time in contact with lees and oak
are desired, the juice and lees together go into oak barrels, and
length of time, stirring the lees, and toasting level of the oak all have
an impact on the final wine.
As odd as it may sound, In this context, residual sugar is actually
something which is easy to control if the winemaking is detailoriented. Fermentation is never the same twice, but each and every
one can and must be tracked for temperature, yeast health, amounts
and kinds of nutrients, Brix and alcohol, and other leading
indicators of how well and how fast the conversion of sugars to
alcohols and malic to lactic acid, if applicable, is happening.
Arresting the fermentation, pulling the emergency break, if you will,
is generally done through shutting down the temperature and
adding enough sulfites to knock out the yeast. Its more of a coast
than a dead stop, but attention to the numbers and experience
usually produce desired results akin to coasting a boat into its
desired docking slip.
Fine winemaking is very much akin to fine cooking and baking,
so its no wonder the two go hand in hand in wine country. We
strive through our winegrowing, like the chef who grows and raises
her own flora and flauna, to produce fantastic ingredients for
which we have recipes developed through education, time in others
cellars, and experience. The next time you sip a white, think about
what decisions were or were not made, and consider, too, what you
would have done the same or differently had the recipe been yours
to tweak. Enjoy!
