INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER by Len Napolitano

How does wine get color?
White wine, rosé wine, red wine … together they span a range of color from very pale yellow to pink to deep purple. There’s a world of differences among the styles of these wines and the ways they are made. But the way in which they each achieve their own degree of color is simply dependent upon how much time the grapes skins spend in contact with the grape juice. As the juice from crushed red grapes remains in contact with the grape skins, the pigments of the skins add color to the juice. This is called maceration time. Depending on the wine and the winemaker’s preference, it could last from several days to several weeks. The longer the maceration period, the darker the wine’s final color. Throughout the maceration, the skins tend to rise to the top, from the carbon dioxide that is released during fermentation. This “cap” of skins is regularly pushed back into the juice, or “punched down,” to extract as much color from the skins as possible. Before white wine is fermented, the juice is separated from the skins, thereby having little or no contact with the grape skins. White wine can be made from either red or white grapes because the juice coming from any grape is always clear, but only red grapes will be used to make red wine. When rosé wine is being made, the grape skins are left in contact with the fermenting juice for a time period just long enough to create a pink-colored juice. Then the skins are removed and the remaining juice is fermented in the same manner as juice for making white wine.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWS

Wine Garage – Here Comes the Jug!
Well, it has taken a while, but the Wine Garage Jug Wine Program has been free-flowing for the past 18 months. The custommade, stainless-steel taps facilitate the flow of two righteous and delicious blends, B1 (a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Merlot and Petit Verdot) and R1 (a Rhone-style blend of Syrah, Zinfandel, Grenache, Mourvedre and Petite Sirah). “My biggest problem,” says co-founder, Todd Miller, “is that customers can’t decide which to buy because they love them both so much.” And with good reason. Miller bought the individual lots of finished wine that make up each blend from some of his personal winemaking friends. The wine came from grapes from several of Napa’s most prestigious vineyards. He's sworn to secrecy on the vineyard sources so the Wine Garage blends don’t compete against the same wines priced at two, three or even four times what Miller sells it for – just $29.99 for a half-gallon jug, filled to order. 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 the 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 Wine Garage carries a wide selection of bargains from Sonoma and Napa, and gems from as far afield as Paso Robles, Lodi, the Sierra Foothills and Mendocino County. The store features wines under $25 (with the exception of three Private Label wines), and Miller doesn’t buy a wine for the store unless he loves it. What’s best is the Wine Garage staff takes the guesswork out of wine shopping: tell the staff what you're looking for and they will steer you to the perfect bottle. The Wine Garage is a licensed winery, and in addition to the blends on tap, they produce a line of their own Wine Garage wines from grapes they crush. For reds they offer a Napa Valley Zinfandel, a Zin blend from Napa Valley, a Rhone blend from The North Coast of California, and three selections of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons. They also offer a white blend: Joy Ride (named for Todd’s business partner, Joy), a lively blend of Albarino, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Muscat. The Wine Garage’s wine club is one of the best deals around. Club members can choose to receive six bottles of red wine (or three red and three white) six times per year for $110 per shipment, plus shipping. The Wine Garage also offers an “Intense Red” selection of massively concentrated and extracted wines, also six bottles six times per year for $135-$145 per shipment, plus shipping. The Wine Garage, located at 1020 Foothill Boulevard (Highway 29) in Calistoga, is open from 11 a.m. till 6:30 p.m. Monday thru Saturday and 11 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call (707) 942-5332, visit the website at www.winegarage.net or send an email to team@winegarage.net.

Bennett Lane Winery Offers A Feast for the Senses this Thanksgiving
Located just north of downtown Calistoga, family-owned Bennett Lane Winery’s friendly and casual tasting room is one wine country destination worth the drive north. The winery caters to all of the senses, offering guests not just wine tasting, but winemaking as well, and offers the perfect slice of fall as harvest at the winery comes to a close. Bennett Lane’s tasting room has become known as the friendliest tasting room in the valley and this fall they are offering two incredible tasting options, sure to please everyone from the wine beginner to the true Cabernet collector. Their flagship $10 flight buys guests tastes of four of Bennett Lane’s wines, the Chardonnay, the Maximus Red Feasting Wine blend, the Merlot, and the Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition they are offering their Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon flight for $20 person. This vertical tasting flight includes a sample of the 2005, 2006, and 2007 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. The most sought after wine at Bennett Lane, the Reserve Cabernet has garnered critical acclaim for every vintage of release. In the last four years alone Bennett Lane has had thirteen of their wines scored 90 and above in Wine Spectator. The Maximus “feasting wine” blends are the perfect for the top feast of the year: Thanksgiving. The red “feasting wine” blend has had wine lovers flocking to Bennett Lane’s tasting room since its inception. The current release 2006 Maximus Red Feasting Wines is being hailed as the best deal in the valley. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, this wine will please all of your guests this holiday season. According to Bennett Lane owner Randy Lynch, “Our

goal at Bennett Lane is to make wines of outstanding quality year after year,” he says. “We make every effort to use only the finest fruit and bring it to fruition in the bottle through meticulous winemaking”. In addition to the red blend, they also produce “White Maximus”, a Sauvignon Blanc blend with a touch of Chardonnay and Muscat. This aromatic white is the perfect partner to all of your holiday meals. For the more ambitious Napa-goer, Bennett Lane offers a custom blending experience for groups of six or more, offered by advance appointment only. Why not make your own wine for this year’s Thanksgiving celebration? The “Put a Cork in It!” Custom Blend Experience allows groups to blend their own red wines Maximus style - lead by the expert staff at the winery. At $175 per person the package includes limousine service to and from the winery from either the Calistoga or St. Helena area (for up to eight people), a blending session, an individually-blended bottle of wine to take home for each guest, and a wine and cheese pairing. “Put a Cork in It” is an incredible value and is perfect for couples traveling together, as well as corporate groups interested in the ultimate hands-on wine tasting adventure. Visiting Bennett Lane affords tasters another rarity with a small winery - a likely run-in (and perhaps a last minute barrel tasting if you’re lucky!) with owners Randy and Lisa Lynch or Winemaker Grant Hermann. Bennett Lane Winery is located at 3340 Highway 128, approximately two miles north of Calistoga, and is open by appointment from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for tastings and tours. For more information or to reserve your own Custom Blend Experience, visit the Bennett Lane website at www.bennettlane.com or call (707) 942-6684.

PARADISE RIDGE WINERY
by Michelle J. Baker
It would be a cliche only if it wasn’t so true: go to Paradise Ridge Winery and discover paradise. Paradise Ridge is just a few minutes from Highway 101, yet a trip to the top of this prominent ridge in Santa Rosa’s Fountaingrove neighborhood offers visitors the consummate wine country experience. You have to see it to believe it, this panoramic view looking west over the Santa Rosa plain and the Russian River Valley. Walter Byck and his wife, Marijke ByckHoenselaars, first discovered this beautiful 156-acre estate in 1978, dubbing it “Paradise Ranch” – a place where they could camp, hike, fish and raise their five young children. The Bycks soon planted Sauvignon Blanc on the estate, and in a few years added Chardonnay. By the late 1980s, with 17 acres of vineyards, the couple began to plan for a winery and in 1994, they opened Paradise Ridge Winery. The winery quickly became Sonoma County’s destination event winery, known for its prime setting and sweeping views. In 1998 the Bycks did another round of planting on the estate with four acres of Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah. That same year they brought on their son-in-law, Dan Barwick, as winemaker. Barwick came with winemaking experience at Matanzas Creek and Ferrari-Carano as well as world travels working harvests in Burgundy, France; Stellenbosch, South Africa; Sydney, Australia and the Barossa Valley, Australia. Since Barwick took the helm, the Paradise Ridge wines have become perennial award winners. In 2001, the winery began to purchase grapes from what is now the Rockpile appellation. There’s a high level of excitement at Paradise Ridge about the Rockpile wines, notably The Convict, the winery’s gold medal-winning Rockpile Zinfandel, and the best of class winner Elevation, a Rockpile Cabernet Sauvignon from grapes grown at 2,000 feet elevation. These days the next generation of Bycks are taking the reins over much of the daily operations at the winery, with son Rene acting as Vice President, while daughter Sonia oversees the many other facets of running a winery. Block at least an hour of your day to take in all that Paradise Ridge has to offer: art, history and fine wine converging in one glorious setting. Marijke’s Grove, a rotating exhibit of sculptures by both local and nationally recognized artists. Visitors to the winery can meander through the grove’s individual “galleries” along a simple footpath. Marijke, one of Santa Rosa’s best known philanthropists, died in a car accident almost five years ago. Before her death she was the face of the winery, greeting guests and often pouring wine behind the tasting bar. Her memory is celebrated in the unique and transformative Marijke’s Grove, which is open to visitors free of charge during the winery’s regular hours.

Nagasawa Exhibit
The Paradise Ranch is adjacent to some 2000 acres of land which once belonged to Kanaye Nagasawa. Nagasawa eventually came to Santa Rosa with Thomas Lake Harris, who is credited with establishing a local utopian community on a site he called “Fountain Grove: The Eden of the West”. Harris gave Nagasawa a leadership role in charge of cultivating the vines on the land and sustaining the colony. Eventually the utopian community disbanded, and Harris gave Nagasawa the entire estate. Nagasawa went on to great celebrity, eventually becoming known locally as the “Wine King” and as the first person to introduce California wine to Europe and Japan. He died in 1934, leaving the vast estate to his heirs. In

The Sculpture Garden
As the story goes, Walter Byck proposed to his Dutch girlfriend in a sculpture garden in Holland in 1961. The Bycks had always loved fine art, and in 1996 they created a four-acre sculpture garden in an ancient oak grove on the estate. Now home to one of Wine Country’s most interesting art collections is

1942 his heirs lost the land during the Japanese-American Internment. The Bycks have honored the memory and contribution of the “Wine King” with the Nagasawa exhibit, which visitors can enjoy during regular tasting room hours.

Self-Guided Vineyard Tour
Paradise Ridge is one of four Sonoma County wineries now participating in “Sonoma County Vineyard Adventures,” selfguided vineyard tours sponsored in part by by the Sonoma County Winegrape Commission. This free program gives participants the opportunity to learn up-close about what goes on in a vineyard.

Paradise in Kenwood
In case you don’t make it to Paradise Ridge in Santa Rosa, the winery also offers an exclusive Sonoma Valley experience with a new tasting room and art gallery in Kenwood. The tasting room features Paradise Ridge’s elite selection of wines from the Russian River Valley and the exclusive Rockpile appellation. At the Kenwood tasting room, both sparkling wine tasting and barrel tasting are available daily. There is great art to be found in Kenwood too, including the large-scale sculpture that graces the entrance to the property. Visitors to Paradise Ridge in Kenwood can also see the current indoor art exhibit, featuring works by young artists from the Hanna Boys Center (these art pieces are for sale, with a portion of the proceeds from the art and wines sales donated to the Center). Visit Paradise Ridge Winery at two great locations: 4545 Thomas Lake Harris Drive, Santa Rosa (open 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily); and 8860 Sonoma Highway, Kenwood (open 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily)

A Hanukkah Hootenanny at Judd’s Hill Winery
by Charles Neave
Judd’s Hill Winery – now entering it’s 21st year – is barely a mile from downtown Napa, and it’s there that Judd Finkelstein and his wife Holly, both well-respected veterans of the wine business in the Napa Valley, craft their wines, many of them in small lots and sold only at the winery. They range from an intriguing rosé (when available) all the way through a selection of Zinfandel, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Estate Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah, their famous Cabernet Sauvignon and the Founder’s Art Reserve Cab (only 144 cases made). “One of the reasons our Cabernet has become so coveted by people who love wine is its elegant style, a style that showcases the true nature of the Cabernet grape,” Judd said. “It’s an approachable wine – in fact we make all of our wines to be approachable upon release, yet they still have enough depth so that they can be cellared and aged for years.” “A big part of our winemaking philosophy is to let the fruit be the showcase. Our style is to have wines with true varietal characteristics with just a nuance of the underlying oak. I feel that we just guide it along in an artful way and don’t manipulate it too much, to ensure its fruit origin is preserved.” Fifth Annual Hanukkah Hootenanny at the winery. It will be a benefit for Childrens Health Initiative Napa County, a non-profit organization that ensures that every child is given equal access to health care. “We’ll have entertainment by Meshugga Beach Party who play traditional Jewish folk songs in an instrumental ‘surf music’ style and a latke bar unlike any other and Napa Valley masters of BBQ Pat Burke and Brian Whitmer will be showing off some new treats!” To spread the holiday cheer there will also be another charitable aspect: guests who bring an unwrapped (in the box) toy with a value of $10 or more, five cans of non-perishable food or one or more pairs of lightly worn shoes to donate will receive a certificate to return to the winery for a free tour and tasting in the future. Wine club members who bring a holiday gift of this type will receive a special surprise gift. And as this is a very popular event, there’s no time like today to reserve a spot! The tasting room at Judd’s Hill is open daily, and by appointment only, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. (last tasting is around 3 p.m.) They’re located at 2332 Silverado Trail in Napa. To make an appointment, call (707) 255-2332 or log on to www.juddshill.com.

Inside, oak barrels are full of ageing wine; to the left, as you enter, is a comfortable room for sit down tastings.. As Pat Burke, the Director of Hospitality said, “The overwhelming response has been very gratifying. People become instant fans of our wines.” Now all you need to do is find this out for yourself.” He is the one that will take you through a sampling of current releases along with a selection of limited edition wines available only at the winery or through their wine club.

It’s a Wonderful Time of Year at Joseph Phelps Vineyards
by Karin Argoud
Want to know one of the best kept secrets about visiting the world renowned Joseph Phelps Vineyards during the holiday season? Just like the song says, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” Make sure to treat yourself, friends and family to a special visit that only Phelps can give you during the next few months. The crowds and summer heat has sizzled away and so has the hurry of harvest. Now Napa has slowed to a new rhythm, a joie de vivre kind of feel. If ever there is a time to visit, Joseph Phelps Vineyards, it’s now! “This is when we can really respond to special requests,” says Hospitality Director Stephen Pavy. “If you call us and want to bring family and friends for a visit, our hospitality staff will personalize it just for you. Whether it’s a seminar or a fun tasting, we have the time to create something memorable!” And the winery is a hidden treasure you will not forget. Nestled in the hillsides east of the Silverado Trail, just south of St. Helena, it is far from the hustle and bustle of Highway 29. Gaze at old oak trees, covered with silky strands of Spanish moss. Soak in the sweet scent of pine trees, the ribbeting frogs, flowing creek and the warm sun. Sit at one of the large wooden picnic benches overlooking a breathtaking view of their vineyards. Now you’re ready for a taste of some Joseph Phelps world-class wine and hospitality. This slice of heaven was found by a visionary named Joseph Phelps,

who, in the late sixties, left a career running one of the largest construction companies in the U.S., to make his mark in the wine industry. In 1973, he bought this 600-acre Connolly cattle ranch, and began planting 128 acres of vineyards. The winery was completed in 1974. Nearly four decades later, the flagship wine, Insignia, is recognized as one of the world’s great wines. Thirty vintages have been rated ninety or more points by various wine publications. The Phelps have

also become legendary for their philanthropy, including creating new housing for the farm workers. Phelps has been at the forefront of biodynamics for years; promoting a holistic ecology, a balanced ecosystem and a healthy dynamic soil. This is a place where the people who are growing the grapes, making the wines, and taking care of the property, are all in tune with nature’s rhythm. Joseph Phelps Vineyards believes in giving back to the earth, not just taking from it. This is a place you can visit and feel good about the wine you taste, and the wine you buy. “From Joseph Phelps Napa Cabernet, to our flagship wine, Insignia, our wines are a perfect gift for that special occasion,” says Pavy. “They speak for themselves in terms of the quality, and we can have them packaged in incredible ways.” Joseph Phelps is a family winery with a staff that will take extra good care of you during the holidays. “We honor the family,” says Pavy. “It is important to us. Doing something special, creating memories together, Joseph Phelps Vineyards is the place to do that.” Joseph Phelps is located at 200 Taplin Road, St. Helena and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All visits are by appointment only.

Winemaker Profile: Domaine Carneros

EILEEN CRANE
by Charles Neave
The building that houses the winery, cellars and tasting room of Domaine Carneros sits halfway up a small knoll near the point where Napa meets Sonoma, right in the midst of the vine-carpeted Carneros region that inhabits both counties. The winery itself is impossible to miss. It is a flawless French chateau set magically in this spot 5,000 miles from France. For years this region near San Pablo Bay has been known for the cultivation of both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, two of the essential building blocks of premium sparkling wines. It’s also an area with a long, cool growing season, as the grapes which are particularly fine for sparkling wine have greater fruit maturity and produce wines with superb balance and a long, subtle finish. The French-based winery started producing small quantities of fine Estate Pinot Noir almost two decades ago, and in 2003 they completed a dedicated Pinot Noir facility that incorporated the largest solar collection system on any winery in the world. Domaine Carneros’ Founding Winemaker and CEO Eileen Crane is equally at home in the world of wine and fine dining. Raised with an abiding appreciation for both, she originally prepared for a culinary career, earning a degree at the Culinary Institute of America. But the draw of wine – and sparkling wine – was stronger. She was chosen by no less a personage than Claude Taittinger for that position at the new Domaine Carneros, a project that was dedicated to producing first rate sparkling wines to be made in the French manner and style. Soon she was in charge of the planning and development of the chateau, vineyards and winemaking facility. Today, the winery produces sparkling wines in three traditional styles: Brut, Brut Rosé and Blanc de Blancs. This is in addition to the offerings from the Pinot Noir program: Domaine Carneros produces three different Pinots: the fruity and fresh Avant-Garde, the rich balanced Domaine Carneros and the intense Famous Gate (when you visit you’ll understand the origin of the name). As has been said: “It is understandable that Taittinger and Eileen Crane have joined forces as they share a common winemaking style.” The elegant, delicate, yet intense style for which Taittinger is well

respected and is what Eileen strives for. “My main objective in making wine is making something that has superb balance, great flavor and is absolutely delicious. We do this through careful management of our certified organic estate vineyards, meticulous winemaking and a sensibility for crafting lush wine,” Eileen said recently. “This harvest 2010 – while it was very late, or because it was very late – has been a fabulous one for crafting sparkling wines. The grapes had longer hang time and the wines we will make from this harvest I believe will be outstanding.” At the winery you will find that Domaine Carneros is one of the few wineries where you can relax and enjoy table service either in the very handsome, classic salon or on the terrace that looks out over the rolling hills of vines. Their wines may be tasted in flights, by the glass or by the bottle. Additionally, they offer caviar, artisan cheese and charcuterie plates matched to the wines, to make this truly a feast for all of the senses. The tasting room at Domaine Carneros is located at 1240 Duhig Road, Napa. They are open daily from 10 a.m. until 5:45 p.m. and tours are offered at 11 a.m. and 1 and 3 p.m. For more information on tastings and tours, call 1-800 716-BRUT (2788) or go to www.domainecarneros.com.

SUISUN VALLEY
BLUE VICTORIAN WINERY
Exceptional Wines, Over the Top Hospitality
are thrilled that we have just won gold at the New York’s International for their 2006 Cab,” said Frank Vezér. Also, at a blind tasting recently held at the elegant Bay Leaf Restaurant in Napa, Vezér’s 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was unanimously preferred over a famous 97 point Napa Valley Cabernet. One cannot write an article on Vezér and Suisun Valley without mentioning the La Salette, if it is not already known as the world’s most exquisite Petite Syrah blend, it is certainly known as the world’s most expensive, where a magnum of La Salette sold to two investors for $30,000 in a live charity auction. Have no fear though, in the tasting room a bottle is far more affordable price, though it is indisputably a wine for those special occasions. But Vezér is all about hospitality and family, and this is the main reason why Suisun Valley is being recognized as the “wine hospitality valley.” The Vezér family warmly invites you to visit all of the twelve wineries in the valley, and to make it a full weekend destination. You can even plan a dinner at the Vintage Café, right next to one of the Vezér tasting rooms, and spend the night in one of the areas many fine hotels. For more information on this special part of the Northern California Wine Country, go to SuisunValleyTheNapaBackroad.com. And be sure to visit the Vezér website at www.VezerFamilyVineyard.com.

Though often – too often – overlooked, Suisun Valley is one of the last of California’s remaining hidden gems, despite the fact that it is barely a dozen miles from the City of Napa. But for years Suisun has been known as a trusted and quality stand-in to the star winemakers of Napa and Sonoma. Now, with the recent introduction of Frank and Liz Vezér and their best friends and partners, Sam and Mimi Mizirawi, things are changing. To begin with, the Vezer’s bought the 30-acre ranch and vineyard formerly contracted to the “Sin Zin” people and “Ravenswood.” That was followed in very short order by their purchase of the entire Western “Pony Express” village of Mankas Corners, a property with 160 years of colorful history. Then they acquired Suisun Valley’s Crown Jewel, the Blue Victorian in the very heart of this valley of rolling hills, farms, pasture and vineyards. Also a 160-year-old homestead, it has towering century-old date palms and a gorgeous and, yes, a very blue Victorian manor. All three locations are working winery sites, with some of the most unique and hospitable tasting rooms you have ever experienced, stocked with an array of good wines and staffed by people who are simply glad you stopped by and who want to share the area’s history, stories and wines with you. However, what is the best part about the Vezér Family wineries and this tranquil valley are their wines. There are the crisp, tropical fruit whites that even red wine drinker would love, and then there are the Vezér reds. Reds that are lush, jammy and with a silky smooth finish. And all their wines pair perfectly with food; in my mind the ultimate test of any wine. All of the wines from Vezér and Blue Victorian have won awards, and most of these awards are Best in Class, double gold and gold. “We

NAPA VALLEY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

TRINCHERO NAPA VALLEY
by Charles Neave
An architect friend of mine once told me that to create understatement is not easy; to create understatement that is also amazing is much more difficult and seldom inexpensive. If you would like to see proof of this for yourself, plan a visit to Trinchero Napa Valley a few miles north of St. Helena, where the Trinchero family has created what could almost be called a monument to grape growing and winemaking in the Napa Valley. An understated monument, of course. Over the past few years the Trinchero family, a family synonymous with the amazing success in the wine business a lucky few have found here, have built this property to handcraft single-vineyard estate wines in the most modern of facilities, but one that blends in seamlessly with the acreage it occupies, Surrounded by vineyards planted on gently sloping land, it offers exceptional views of Howell Mountain to the east and Spring Mountain off to the west. In fact it is not far from the places that Mario Trinchero liked best when he arrived in the Valley. The tasting room is more classic farmhouse than ultra-modernist display art or faux Tuscan artifice – albeit a perfectly proportioned farm house at that. The state-of-the-art temperature and humidity controlled barrel room across the way has a stone facade, and as you walk to the tasting room you’ll go past an open air pavilion with a myriad of wellconceived plantings, fruit and olive trees, a fountain and more. Again, it fits naturally into this spot on top of a small knoll with its’ commanding views. Even sitting at the half dozen picnic tables in front of the tasting room you are not far from town, but are still far removed from anything but vines, wine and winemaking. “A lot of the properties in the Valley aren’t permitted picnics, but luckily we are, which is a nice thing to be able to offer to our guests,” said tasting room manager Lew Price, looking down at the tables and the original old trees that shade them from the broad porch above, near the door into the tasting room. To make these small lots of world class wine, there is everything in the winemaker’s arsenal that could possibly be required. Designed from the ground up, there is a sophisticated wine storage area, the most modern grape sorting equipment, and small fermentation tanks that allow individual lots – the most promising ones – to be isolated. No detail is too big nor too small. For instance grapes are sorted not just once but twice, they use a hydraulic basket press, grapes are picked with pruning shears not knives, and the grapes are picked with the clusters intact and 35 pound lot boxes are used. “It is all about attention to detail and quality,’ winemaker and Northern California native Mario Monticelli has said. “I’m a minimalist. It is my goal to put forth the best expression of the fruit and the land on which it is grown.” To that end, grapes are carefully dealt with throughout the year, and come crush extra care is shown, even though it is all a very labor intensive process. The result is wines of exceptional depth and precision, be it the Vista Montone Vineyard Daybreak Block Merlot, the Chicken Ranch Vineyard offerings (both Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon), their Meritage (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cab Franc), the Cabernet simply called ‘Signature’, or any of the other bottlings – including the one white wine, the Mary’s Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc. To taste these wines, head to the tasting room with its fireplace, L-shaped tasting bar, polished wood floors and lots of natural light. Relax and be prepared to be guided through a sensory experience that will be both pleasurable and memorable, no matter which of the three tasting options you choose. “I want people to leave here knowing what the name Trinchero is all about,” Lew said recently. “What they have done for the Valley is amazing, and it is showcased in these wines.” The Trinchero Napa Valley tasting room is open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. They’re located at 3070 N. St. Helena Highway, St. Helena. For more information call (800) 967-4663 or go to www.trincheronapavalley.com.

Tasting Room of the Week:

REYNOLDS FAMILY WINERY
by Diana Greenwood
It’s been almost a dozen years since Steve and Suzie Reynolds opened Reynolds Family Winery in the prime location on Silverado Trail just north of Napa. This spot is a little bit country, a little bit city life. Perched on a pond in a slice of rolling vineyard land backed by the crags of the Vaca Range, the winery is at once old-fashioned farm (complete with vintage truck and critters) and contemporary convenience with lifestyle comforts for today’s wine tasting crowd. The patio with its iron tables and chairs, outdoor fireplace, and the splashing of the fountain in the center of the pond, is casual yet designed with an eye for the long view, the one that sneaks a peak through rows of vines, follows the winding path where benches beckon under oaks, the view that spies the hawk against blue fall sky. It’s a lovely time of year to visit Reynolds Family Winery. Harvest is complete and there’s a winding-down sensation here, fewer crowds, more time to taste wine. Heaps of gourds and pumpkins and vibrant flowers in clay pots dot the path to the huge front doors and inside, the soft twang of country music is background to friendly chatter at the long tasting counter. Make yourself at home. Steve Reynolds is usually around; he’ll probably stop to say hello. Red leather chairs, antique sideboards, French doors, upscale gifts and tasteful logo products harmonize in a setting that offers an easy welcome. Reynolds Family wines are like that, too, an easy welcome, and they’ve earned their first-rate reputation. Known for the delicious Cabernet Sauvignon grown on ten of the fourteen acres you can see through the French doors, the winery makes frequent medal news. The Beverage Testing Institute recently honored the 2006 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon with a gold medal, the title “Exceptional” and 94 points, a hard-to-accomplish rating but well deserved. Steve, hands-on in all aspects of running the business, is also head winemaker and he calls this wine “spicy, plush, and velvety, a powerful and tasty Cabernet.” This is one of the wines to consider for your holiday guests this season, extraordinarily luscious when paired with smoked turkey. In keeping with that “little bit of country” feel here, Reynolds Family Winery recently entered Houston’s huge annual Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition where 1,761 wines from 583 wineries vie for top spots. One of the most talked about wines was the Reynolds Family Winery 2006 Persistence™, Napa Valley, which grabbed a “Gold Belt Buckle Award” and all the heel-clicking, high-stepping glory that goes with it. A blend that includes fruit from all the Napa Valley appellations, Persistence is complex and luscious, presenting smoky aromas and deep layers of plums and red and black currents with a subtle hint of chocolate. “We were thrilled when we heard about this honor,” said Suzie Reynolds. “We just released this vintage of Persistence and it’s a great wine with so much to offer.” You can try Persistence and three additional current releases in the tasting room for a $10 fee and you keep the lovely logo glass. The tasting fee is waived with a purchase of four or more bottles. For white wine lovers, there’s a fabulous, award-winning Napa Valley Chardonnay and the 2007 vintage is lively with lemon zest, rich minerality and a light touch of grilled pineapple. This is another wine for your holiday table. Reynolds Family Winery produces a total of seven, limited production wines. In addition to those noted above, there are two food-friendly Pinot Noirs, a Merlot for purists, and the wonderful 2007 Reserve Cabernet, Stag’s Leap, which should be on everyone’s must-try list. Located just north of Napa at 3622 Silverado Trail, the winery is open by appointment from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. so make a quick call to (707) 258-2558 or visit the website at www.reynoldsfamilywinery.com and send an e-mail. You’ll love the mix of country setting and contemporary lifestyle here, you’ll enjoy the family’s welcome, and the wines will bring you back again and again.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Celebrate in Healdsburg with a Restaurant Dine Around
Four Progressive Courses at the Very Best of Healdsburg’s Restaurants
The event that delivers incredible food and wine as part of a festive seasonal outing in one of California’s most popular wine country destinations is the Holidays in Healdsburg Strolling Dine Around. This annual dining experience features 16 local restaurants, all showcasing the best of wine country cuisine, in a four-course progressive dinner as part of Holidays in Healdsburg on December 8, 9, 15 and 16. All the restaurants are within walking distance of the historic town plaza and share a dedication to locally grown food – from their own organic gardens or from local niche suppliers. Style and price point range from the Bear Republic Brewing Company to Cyrus Restaurant. All the participating restaurants are known for delivering seriously delicious food locally or regionally sourced, often carefully cultivated in their own organic gardens, and prepared in innovative dishes. A portion of the event’s proceeds is donated to Healdsburg Shared Ministries Food Pantry. Informally, each restaurant competes to deliver the best in their category while displaying holiday ambiance, style and culinary talent. Two of this year’s first courses options include annual event participant favorites Sake’O’s martini prawns (served with the new wave roll and the Spanish fly additional starters) and Willi’s Seafood and Raw Bar’s tuna tartar with coconut milk, cashews and jalapeño (served with flash-fried calamari, warm sourdough bread and blue arugula and endive salad with blue cheese, cherries and a truffle honey vinaigrette). The newest addition to the first course dine around restaurant’s line-up is spoonbar! The Merguez sausage with harissa and tomato dip, grilled Tunisian beef skewers with yogurt sauce and Calabrianstyle breaded shrimp have only a few places left once the previous Strolling Dine Around attendees were advance first pick. Two of the main course competitors are Relish Culinary Adventures’ pomegranate braised short ribs with cauliflower gratin and duck leg confit with green peppercorn brandy cream sauce and truffle-mashed potatoes. Another new addition to Healdsburg this year, and to the notable list of dine around participants, is Baci Café & Wine Bar, which will be offering a choice of tiramisu, pannacotta, pannacotta di espresso, chocolate decadence, gelato or sorbetto. Annual Dine Around favorite Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen’s traditional choice of six “scrumptious” winter desserts created and prepared by Pastry Chef Yulanda Santos is always is reserved quickly. Each restaurant can only accommodate a limited number of people, so food aficionados will want to download a copy of the brochure soon at www.healdsburg.com to view menus and select first choice requests for date, time and appetizers, first course, main dish and dessertdining options. The cost is $85 and optional wine pairing selections will be available for purchase at the restaurants. Participating restaurants are Affronti, A Divine Affair, Baci Café & Wine Bar, Barndiva, Bear Republic Brewing Company, Bistro Ralph, Café Gratitude, Cyrus Restaurant, Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen, spoonbar!, Ravenous Café & Lounge, Restaurant Charcuterie, Relish Culinary Adventures, Sake’O Japanese Restaurant, Willi’s Seafood & Raw Bar and Zin Restaurant & Wine Bar.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

CORNERSTONE SONOMA
A Wine Tasting Destination and More
What do you get when you mix 25 architectural gardens with art galleries, cutting-edge design shops, a cafe and then throw in two first-class wine-tasting rooms? The answer is an incredible Sonoma County destination called CornerStone Sonoma. Situated in the Carneros region of the county, CornerStone is a must stop for visitors coming into wine country. The gardens were conceived by Chris Hougie six years ago after his many trips to France and viewing the Festival of Gardens at Chaumont sur Loire. Wanting to establish something similar in the States, he created CornerStone which is still the only destination of its kind in this country. The individual gardens on the nine acre property are designed by landscape architects and garden designers, many of whom are the most acclaimed in the world. Add the unique shops, a gourmet café and the two tasting rooms to the mix and you have the most unique destination in the Wine Country. And speaking of wine, the two tasting rooms, Keating Wines and Meadowcroft Wines, offer a variety of hand-crafted varietals created by using the finest grapes grown in both the Sonoma and Napa valleys. Keating Wines, which opened at CornerStone just two months ago, is owned and operated by Eric Keating, who gave up a Wall Street career to return to his roots in Sonoma to pursue a career in the wine business. Upon his return to Sonoma, Keating spent three years learning every aspect of the wine business at the well-renowned, family owned winery VJB Vineyards & Cellars in Kenwood, California. Inspired to venture out on his own, Keating made the decision to pursue the passion which was slowly consuming his life, wine! A small-production winery, Keating made a conscious effort to source only premium fruit available from superior vineyards in Sonoma and Napa counties. After operating out of his home in Kenwood, Keating was looking for just the right place to showcase his wines to the public, and when he discovered CornerStone Sonoma, his search was over! Like Eric Keating, wine grower and winemaker Tom Meadowcroft was also looking for just the right location. He discovered CornerStone late last year, and in February brought his family of wines to his CornerStone location and has enjoyed immediate success. Meadowcroft has worked in the wine industry for many years, starting out

with Buckland Vineyard Management running the crews and on to designing, planting and managing fields for wineries such as Cakebread, Duckhorn, Robert Mondavi, Opus One, Stags Leap and others. In 1999 he bought a vineyard on Mt. Veeder in Napa County in anticipation of establishing his own winery. It took four years to bring the vineyard up to Meadowcroft’s exacting standards. Finally, after seven years with Buckland, it was time for him to step out on his own and put his knowledge and experience to use for himself. With three labels of his own: Meadowcroft, Magito and Thomas Henry, Tom Meadowcroft also makes the wines for the Foyt Family Wines (yes the famous A.J. Foyt racing family), and all of the wines are available in his CornerStone Sonoma tasting room. One could literally spend the day at CornerStone Sonoma enjoying the gardens, shops, lunch in the café, and of course sampling the fine wines provided by Keating Wines and Meadowcroft Wines. Come to CornerStone and discover everything you never expected – and more!

Dickens’ Christmas Market Held in Downtown Lakeport
The eighth-annual Dickens’ Christmas Market – an event that transforms downtown Lakeport into an old English village for a day full of festivities – will be held from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, November 27, 2010. Traveling to downtown Lakeport during Dickens’ Market is like traveling back through the centuries. Costume-clad characters from the 1800s stroll along Main Street and welcome guests to browse the shops and enjoy the food and vendor booths. Event-goers are encouraged to arrive dressed for the occasion in period costumes and enter the costume contest for a chance at cash prizes. Restaurants in downtown Lakeport offer delicious food for sale for the occasion, and a variety of tasty treats also are available at the “King’s Food Court” on Third and Main streets. Vendor booths along Main Street include arts and crafts, toys and plentiful gift ideas for the holidays. Some Main Street merchants host their own booths featuring seasonal products and specialty holiday merchandise.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | MONTEREY/CENTRAL COAST

Announcing the Los Gatos-Saratoga Wine Trail
Five neighboring wineries from the historic Santa Cruz Mountains region have established the Los Gatos-Saratoga Wine Trail to increase their presence among tourists and residents of the San Jose metropolitan area. Just 12 miles in length, the Wine Trail (www.lgswinetrail.com) is located a short distance from Silicon Valley and Norman Mineta San Jose International Airport, offering the convenience of daily wine tasting in the relaxed setting of two picturesque and vibrant communities. The Los Gatos-Saratoga Wine Trail is the collective vision of the five wineries. Dr. Greg Jenkins, a member who owns and operates Fleming Jenkins Vineyards & Winery (www.flemingjenkins.com) with his wife, Olympic Gold Medalist Peggy Fleming, said: “The Wine Trail is convenient to millions of local residents as well as visitors arriving by air in San Jose and San Francisco. Our group emphasizes the common denominators of passion for winemaking and wine quality in our small town settings.” The four other producers in the Wine Trail present people and places of celebrity status in their own right. Located in the historic Los Gatos Novitiate (1888), Testarossa Winery (www.testarossa.com) is the oldest continuously operating winery in the San Francisco Bay Area. Cinnabar Winery (www.cinnabarwine.com) is situated in a wellappointed tasting room in the Saratoga village near boutique shops and stylish restaurants. At Cooper-Garrod Estate Vineyards (www.cgv.com), visitors may enjoy wine tasting with owner and former NASA test pilot George Cooper in the historic Fruit House that was built in 1922. Savannah-Chanelle Vineyards (www.savannahchanelle.com) is set in a landmark winery among the redwoods and hills overlooking the Saratoga village. Collectively, the artisan wineries of the Los Gatos-Saratoga Wine Trail produce small lots of critically acclaimed wine including Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Rosé, Syrah and Viognier. The public is invited to attend the “Happy Holidays Trail Tasting” through December 31, featuring two-for-one wine tasting and 10% discounts on all wine purchases. Visitors can sample and purchase many different wines as well as learn about the individual styles of winemaking and unique company histories. See www.lgswinetrail.com for additional information.

Thanksgiving in the Santa Cruz Mountains
by Laura Ness
First, a thanks for the bountiful harvest, as bizarre as it was. Here in the Santa Cruz Mountains, we are grateful to have a great yield of really decent grapes – students in the average test range, nothing too far off the norm and some quite promising. offering attractive prices on special wines for the Thanksgiving holiday. On Saturday, November 20, pick up a card at any of the five Summit to Sea wineries, get it stamped at each one and be entered into a drawing to win a one-of-akind gift pack of decadently delicious dessert wines from each of the wineries, perfect for the upcoming holidays.

Passport Day in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Saturday, November 20
Although most of the mountain wineries will still be picking fruit well into November, it’s time to pause a bit from the craziness of harvest and reflect for a moment on the bounties nature has given us, along with all the curve balls. For Fall Passport, the Summit to Sea wineries, including Burrell School, Loma Prieta, Poetic Cellars, Hunter Hill and Vine Hill, will be

Give Thanks, Give Pinot
Although Thanksgiving menus are always well-served by Pinot Noir, there is life beyond that precocious princess grape. Start with a Viognier from Loma Prieta or Poetic Cellars, floral, fruity and refreshing, unruffled by the oak influence that can throw turkey off the bus. Move to Hunter Hill or Poetic Cellars for fruitier style Pinots, or to the Loma Prieta ’08 Estate for a more Burgundian rendition, Burrell School and Vine Hill make them bigger and plusher, the better to go with hearty roast turkey, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes and rich gravy. If you’re adding some chiles to your cornbread stuffing, Poetic Cellars Mourvedre or Loma Prieta’s Pinotage will provide a wild and memorable ride for your palate. No fatigue here! There’s always someone who just isn’t into Pinot, so make sure you have some spicy Poetic Cellars Syrah or Hunter Hill Rock n’ Rhone on hand to supply the peppery panache that makes an exceptional repast really pop.

“Holiday Magic in the Mountains” Kicks Off Thanksgiving Weekend
If you prefer to fetch your Christmas tree right after Thanksgiving, your local tree farms and wineries want to make it easier for you to do your holiday shopping without leaving the mountains. Keep your money local with our 2nd annual “Christmas Tree Wine Trail.” It all kicks off the day after Thanksgiving. Grab one of our trail maps at Summit Store, Casalegno’s Market, Nonno’s or any of the Summit to Sea wineries. Ralph invites you to pick up a pizza to bake at home, or hang out and feast on his own home cooking. While you’re at Summit Store, stock up on party supplies, including festive cookies and Gizdich Ranch pies. Why slave in the kitchen? At Casalegno’s, pick up fresh organic eggs, raw milk and Clover products. Both stores stock local wines for those last minute emergency party supply runs! Select a tree at Patchen Tree Farm ($5 off with ad), then head to the participating wineries (Burrell School. Hunter Hill, Loma Prieta, Poetic Cellars, and Vine Hill) for local wines and unique gift ideas, including custom cork ornaments. The beauty of living in this mountain community is that everyone is passionate about something, whether it’s growing the perfect Christmas tree, making the most beautiful pumpkin pie, or crafting the most delicious Pinot Noir. Be thankful for the passions and talents of others: just another of many blessings we can count during this season of Thanksgiving.
