I N T E L L I G E N C E F O R T H E W I N E C O N S U M E RIs “white wine with fish, red wine with meat”still the rule when pairing food with wine?For some people, the task of pairing wine with food becomes astudy in the seemingly unlimited complexities of wine and foodanatomy. However, the simple rule of pairing white wines with fishand red wines with meat serves as a good starting point for anyonewho enjoys wine with their meals. Of course, you can feel free tobreak this golden rule and still create a great food-and-wineexperience. Two of my favorite exceptions to this rule are salmon withPinot Noir, and pork with lightly-oaked or unoaked Chardonnay.When choosing a wine that matches well with food, rule numberone is that your own personal wine preference overrides all otherrules. So, if you absolutely love merlot, even with the most delicatefish dish, then go ahead and drink it regardless of what you areeating. If, however, you want to experience a marriage between foodand wine that in some cases can be described as heavenly, it may beworthwhile to consider this golden rule of wine and food pairing andsome simple steps that can bring you closer to a wine-pairingnirvana.After first deciding on whether to have a red or white wine, thenext decision point comes: matching a full bodied wine with a robustdish or a light wine with a delicate dish. Finally, if you really want toget into the nitty-gritty of wine and food pairing, you can then matchthe flavors in a wine with the dominant flavors in the dish (or sauce)because there is either a shared component in them or there is acomplementary contrast between them. In some cases, the structureof a wine – its crisp acidity, for example, or its dry, tannic backbone--are features to also consider in the decision.BY LEN NAPOLITANOThere are some food and wine pairings that are considered classicmarriages. These include steak with Cabernet Sauvignon, lamb withMerlot, scallops with Chardonnay, caviar with sparkling wine, orsweet Port-style dessert wine with salty Stilton cheese. Except for thelast example, these pairings follow the rule of red wine with meat,white wine with fish. But they all match the robustness of the winewith the food. They also are built upon the marriage of either similaror contrasting flavors that complement each other on the palate andmake for a rich wine and culinary experience.A Certified Specialist in Wine, Len Napolitano has been educating consumers about wine since 2001.

Why the Weather Matters This Year AND NextWherever you go in wine country, you’re bound to seemachinery, equipment, even the vineyards themselves, which isoriented towards mitigating weather influences. Unlike row crops,vineyards and orchards can’t pick up and makes changes every year,but they can make changes to things around said vineyards. Why isthis necessary in the first place? Because weather problems canaffect not just this year’s crop but next year’s too, and damagingvines through cold or heat can quickly become a far more expensiveproposition than the costs of installing solutions to keep theproblems at bay.Why? Because vines aren’t like other annual crops. If you lookclosely at a vine, you will see both this year’s and next year’s buds,which is why weather damage can be such a problem: a grower isforced to contemplate the loss of multiple years’ income. Inside eachbud are really small leaves, and from them come the leaves, canes,shoots and grapes, and each bud has concentric layers, which is whyweather damage is along a continuum. Minor damage, generallyfrom frost, may reduce the yield a bit, but it’s the more severedarkening, akin to frostbite, which is the real issue, guaranteeing acrop loss of at least fifty percent, if not more. Equally, the phloem,join us atour tastingroomBY JOSH STEINthe “bark” on exterior of canes and vine trunks, can also be damagedby cold, causing crop losses, too.The best way to undestand winegrowing options for weathermitigation is to “walk” through the vineyard throughout the year.Winter cold is actually no issue because the vines are dormant,which is why all fifty states have vineyards. Spring is when weatherhas the most impact on two years’ crop because the weather oftenflipflops quite quickly, and rain at an early point can be helpful tobring temperatures up while later in the season causing crop damagevia hail or thunderstorms’ winds. Shattering of the bloomingflowers can disrupt clusters or keep them from being fertilized, yetwhen faced with a frost event earlier in the year, rain is welcomed asit brings the temperature up above freezing. Summer and fall heatcan also be an issue because too-high a temperature can cause vinesto shut down, shriveling or even sunburning grapes, and alsopotentially killing the vine in the process.There are actually lots of options for mitigation, and the best, asyou might expect, are set up so as to help solve more than oneproblem. Believe it or not, something as simple as low trellisingversus high has an impact as far as weather goes as low trellises inthe wrong locales are more subject to frost damage, and highertrellises can provide shade for adjacent rows. How the trellis istrimmed in winter and early spring prior to budbreak is thus onestrategy, and there is projected to be a move back to “CaliforniaSprawl” from the VSP “candelabra” currently seen all over as theNorth Coast replants in the next few years for this reason: not onlydoes this provide different vine growth and brix gains, but it alsohelps as regards frost or hail damage during April and May, when thebuds break and the vines flower.Mechanical options abound, too. The winds machines, thosetwirling engines and fans on poles; the “Inverted Sinks” or “AirDams,” which essentially turn the wind machine to provide a frostsink to pull cold air down and away from vines on hillsides andslopes; vertical sprinklers and micro-sprinklers, which can raise thetemperature or allow frozen water to encase and protect the vines;and smudge pots, the gas fired heaters for the end of vineyard rowswhich work in combination with wind machines—all are ways towork in combination with the land to mitigate the negatives ofweather while allowing the “terroir,” the locational distinctiveness, tostill show through in the grapes and finished wines by “moving theweather” since the vines really cannot. It’s not always easy or cheap,but the results are worth it, no?

The answers: the name of themovie ranch was Reata; in Spanish the name translates as lariat. As yousample the wines at the South Napa Valley winery with that name, itshould not be a surprise to discover that this property has been used tofarm and raise cattle for almost two hundred years.Formerly part of General Mariano Vallejo’s historic Rancho Suscol, itis, to this day, a 300-acre working ranch, where cattle still roam the hillsand sheep graze on the cover crops between terraced vines. The organichoney that the 60,000 resident bees produce in the hives on-site isavailable in the tasting room, along with their award-winning wines.Like the wines themselves, the building that houses the tastingroom, state-of-the-art winery and special event space is handcrafted ofstone and different varieties of woods, from the tasting bar to theexterior walls and interior beams.

DASHWOODRutherford Hill Winery promises an unforgettable experience with its exceptional winetastings, historic wine cave tours and perfect picnics overlooking unparalleled views of NapaValley. Located just off the Silverado Trail, Rutherford Hill makes award-winning wines with aclear vision, intense focus, and consuming passion.Founded in 1972 and purchased by the Terlato family in 1996, owner John Terlato, and hisfamily, have worked closely over the years with winemaker Marisa Taylor, handcrafting selectwines from the highest quality fruit, producing 7 delicious varietals each year. The fruit inRutherford Hill’s vineyards is of the highest quality, enjoying a natural balance of cool morningsand evenings tempered by warm sunny days. With a commitment to sustainable farmingpractices, Rutherford Hill winery farms a 60 acre, estate-owned vineyard in the Rutherfordappellation and owns another 130 acres across the valley.At Rutherford Hill, Merlot is the specialty of the house, known for their flagship RutherfordHill Merlot along with a fine collection of diverse and delicious wines, such as their CabernetSauvignon, Barrel Select (Red Blend), Sangiovese, Petit Verdot and Zinfandel Port.

The mile-longcaves are solar poweredand contain more than8,000 French oak barrelsin which all of the winery’sharvests are mature. Yearround,the oak barrels agein an ideal wine-storageenvironment of 59ºF/85 percent humidity, enhancing the wine agingprocess and producing wines of consistent and notable character.The result is a substantial reduction in wine evaporation, creatingwines with lower concentrations of alcohol. The improvements inthe caves that began in 1999 illustrate the big-picture view thatembodies the Terlato family’s commitment to quality.Rutherford Hill’s expansive views, lush gardens, climbing rosesand quaint courtyard area make the perfect place for picnics andoutdoor wine tastings. If you don’t believe us, when visiting thewinery, Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa) said “Rutherford Hill is aspecial spot to have a picnic.” Their gorgeous picnic grounds areavailable by reservation for a fee.For a very special experience, choose from the wine blendingclasses, wine education tours, and winemaking experiences.

CLeMeNt viNeYArdsStill Reminding Us All That “Old Napa” Never Left!BY JOSH STEINSurrounded by Cabernet vines, on a knoll at the base of Spring Mountain overlooking theupper-Valley, sits the 1878 Victorian mansion which houses St. Clement Vineyards. Originally builtby Fritz Rosenbaum, the man responsible for furnishing the homes of San Francisco’s Guilded Age,the property went through a number of winemaking owners before it was purchased and renamedin 1976 when local opthalmologist William Casey bought it and built the stone winery behind. Thename pays tribute to Casey’s ancestors who helped found the state of Maryland, the cross in theSt. Clement logo coming from that state’s flag. It’s hard to find a more magnificent example of the“Old Napa” idea of a grand winery, and the experience lives up to that image.The exterior is surrounded by gardens with picnic areas and shaded awnings, allowing forspots to stop and savor: the porch and Hilltop Terrace – all harken back to a more timeless senseof the Valley. Stepping into the house is stepping back in time, to an age of quiet kindnesses andelegance. A grand staircase greets visitors upon entry, dividing the bottom of the house into thetwo tasting rooms, and a small children’s playroom resides under the stairs themselves. One gainsa sense of the Valley’s history simply by looking around.Equal to the surroundings, it’s the focus on vineyard location and matching site to varietalwhich has given St. Clement the edge over others in the Valley. Long-term relationships have beenkey in developing special vineyards from which to source the best grapes as no single propertycan do it all. Carneros’s Abbott Vineyard is perfect for Chardonnay and Merlot because of its fogand breezes. South Napa’s Bacigalupi Vineyard offers consistent growth for the Napa Cab bottling.Verhey Vineyard in Atlas Peak provides ultra-concentrated Cabernet grapes while Gamble RanchVineyard between Yountville and Oakville presents amazing Sauvignon Blanc. Rutherford’s StarVineyard supplies the backbone for the “Oroppas” Cabernet with St. Helena’s Bale Lane Vineyardproviding aromatic Sauvignon Blanc and Tournahu Vineyards two different Cabs because ofdifferent soil types. The hills are equally showcased, with Howell Mountain’s Steinhauer RanchLook for us on Facebook and become a Fan!


WiNe CouNtrY tHis WeeK | WiNe CouNtrY NeWsContinuedgiving Cabernet and Mount Veeder’s Progeny providing Cabernet andSyrah.As should be clear from above, there are lots of wines to enjoy,ranging from Napa Valley whites and reds to a half-dozen singlevineyardbottlings of Cab, and at last count, at least eight of thewines can be found only at the winery. The pedigree of eachvarietal is showcased while not losing the sense of place for thegrapes. The Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc show careful,detailed winemaking, and the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignonand Merlot are some of the best, especially at these pricepoints,in the Valley. The single-vineyard Cabs really show off Napa’slocations, with distinct differences in wines from the differentareas of the Valley. Additionally, the winery’s flagship release, the“Oroppas” Cabernet, named for then-owners Sapporo, has beenshowing off the finest of each vintage within St. Clement’scombintorial wineblending for more than two decades.Tasting and touring options accommodate both walk-ins andappointments, and for groups or those looking to personalize theexperience, the winery requires you to make reservations so thatthey’re able to make the visit memorable and special. The HilltopTerrace is the place with amazing views to pair with the wines, andthe time looking around the house gives real insight into Napa’spast. There are two different clubs, with a reds-only option, too, soyou can have access to both the wines and these kinds ofexperiences all year round. As you can see, there’s a lot going on upjust past St. Helena. Do yourself a favor: drop on by or pick upyour phone and give the kind folks at St. Clement a call right now –you’ll be glad you did.

Earthy cola, mushroomand forest floor notes add complexity. The acid-tannin balance is justabout perfect. Good as it is, this compelling Pinot should developwell over the next six years.”“Pinot Noir is my favorite variety to work with,” said GustavoGonzalez, Mira Winery winemaker. “It presents quite a challengeboth in the vineyard as well as the winery but the result in the bottleis like nothing else.

Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the moon; the New YorkMets were on their way to their first National League pennant; “Butch Cassidy and theSundance Kid” was topping the year’s box office sales. And an intrepid youngMidwesterner, yearning to answer the call of his ancestors, was scouring Napa Valleyfor the perfect piece of land on which to plant the family flag.Now, on the eve of Jay Corley’s 82nd birthday, he looks back at his 40+ years in theNapa Valley and looks forward to the next generations taking the reins of the CorleyFamily’s Monticello Vineyards.A dream takes rootIn 1969, the Stanford-educated Corley was running a successful publicly tradedcompany in Los Angeles, but wanted to trade his three-piece suit for overalls. Afterall, farming was in his blood. “Every generation of my family for 400 years has beenfarmers. As a boy, I loved spending time on my grandfather’s farm in southern Illinois.I just always wanted to get back to farming.”At the time, Corley’s friend, a wine shop owner in Los Angeles, was developing apiece of property in Yountville. He invited Corley to come for a visit, and Corley washooked. “I would come up nearly every weekend for nine months to see what wasgoing on here. I would just roam around, get to know people, ask questions. Thereweren’t many people around, but the ones who were,” as Corley lists the names ofcontemporary Napa Valley pioneers and icons, “were very helpful.”A self-described “Burgundy guy” with a taste for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay,Corley was looking for a place where those varieties would thrive. He found it in an80-acre prune orchard at the southern end of Napa Valley.He liked the property’s proximity to the cooling breezes of the San Pablo Bay and thefact that it sat next to the Napa River. “I didn’t think of being on Highway 29 to capturevisitors; I wanted to be on the river because I knew access to water would be essential.”www.WineCountrythisWeek.com

We tested the soil everywhere, and we drilled holes inthe ground to see how the water was flowing. Then we planted thevines closer together than most people were doing in those days tostress them.”the Next generationThings went well enough those first years to make Corley think,“We can do this.” Soon the successful winegrower wanted to build awinery. As a graduate student years earlier, Corley had written athesis on starting up a winery. He opened his desk drawer, dustedoff the old thesis, and got started.All seven of Corley’s children helped out at the winery duringtheir high school years. But Corley encouraged them to go off,experience the world outside of the winery where they had grownup, and then come back if they wanted.Kevin Corley, now Winegrower and President, became asuccessful banker in Los Angeles. Stephen Corley, now the winery’sDirector of Sales and Marketing, was a CPA who worked at theaccounting firm KPMG before he came back to the winery in 1997.Chris Corley, the youngest of the three, has worked at the winerythe longest. Initially aiming to be a marine biologist, Chriseventually decided he would “rather drown in wine than sea water.”He worked in the cellar under other winemakers for 13 years beforehe earned enough stripes to become Head Winemaker in 2002.Now the three brothers form a harmonious management team.“Three of them is better than one of me,” says the senior Corley.the Jefferson ConnectionJay Corley was a great admirer of Thomas Jefferson, who was notonly a founding father but also America’s first great connoisseur. Hehonored the third President by naming the winery MonticelloVineyards - after Jefferson’s mountaintop home in Charlottesville,Virginia. In 1984, the Corleys built the Jefferson House, a very closereplica of Monticello, on the Home Ranch that is now used as officespace and to entertain guests. The four acres of groundssurrounding the Jefferson House are comprised of the same trees,shrubs and flowers Thomas Jefferson planted at Monticello.savor the taste, experience the HospitalityIn the quaint, rustic tasting room, the staff pours a little bit ofeverything the Corleys produce from 80 acres of vines on the HomeRanch in the Oak Knoll District as well as four other estatevineyards in Napa Valley. With 30 vintages under their belts, theCorleys like to show off their library wines in reserve tastings in theJefferson House.

In the 1980’s he held winemaking positions atHacienda Wine Cellars, D’Agostini Winery and Glen Ellen Winery, where he would remain forsome 15 years.He joined Cline Cellars in 2002 and is responsible for winemaking and production for thewinery’s Cline, Oakley and Jacuzzi Family Vineyards brands.“Over the years, we have added more wines to the Cline portfolios, with still more tocome,” says Charlie. “Our core wines at Cline stay the same – Zinfandel, Syrah, Mourvedre andPinot Noir, but we also like to experiment and create some red blends that truly rock the boat.Then there are the Rhône varietals that owner Fred Cline pioneered in the Sonoma Valley yearsago – Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne.”Tsegeletos is producing about 25 different wines for both Cline and Jacuzzi, whichobviously keeps him and his winemaking team of four members and a cellar staff of another12 people pretty busy. And then even more staff is added to the mix when harvest and bottlingtakes place.As for his winemaking philosophy, Charlie often lets the grapes guide his style.

Then he hones hiswinemaking skills to guide the wine toward hischosen style. His red wines are big and dark withlots of fruit concentration and delicate oaknuances, while his white wines are always bright,crisp and fresh.“A visit to Cline Cellars historic setting in theCarneros region of Sonoma County revealsCharlie’s basic varietals, Zinfandel (there are sevenof them), Syrah, and Pinot Noir; the various Rhônewines, and as a bonus, there is Nancy’s CuveeSparkling Wine, which is an excellent way to starta tasting at Cline.An important historical side note, the site of theCline Cellars winery and tasting room is also thesite of the last original Spanish Mission to beestablished in California. The mission wasdedicated on July 4, 1823, and later built at itspresent location in downtown Sonoma.In addition to his duties at Cline, Oakley andJacuzzi, Charlie is also a professional wine judge aswell as a member of the Board of Directors of theSonoma Valley Vintners and Growers Association.He is also an avid snow skier and motorcyclist.

Each year he’s been putting aside a barrel of hisPort wine made from Syrah grapes grown here at the winery so that itcan age into what is known as a “Tawny” style. He started theprogram with the inaugural vintage in 2002 and each year he’stopped the barrels with the current vintage wine. That initial barrelfrom 2002, the bottled version of which won “Best Port in SonomaCounty” at the Harvest Fair, now contains small amounts of eachsuccessive vintage. Therefore, it now contains some of the wines thathave awarded “Best of Port in Show” three times and runner-up for“Best Port in Show” twice! He has waited ten years since this winewas originally put into barrel and it was finally bottled in December2012.The wine is called “Décarda,” which is Portuguese for a decade, tocelebrate its ten years in barrel. It is the first of Loxton’s Tawny Portsto be bottled with a production just yealding 550 bottles. This wine iscurrently available to the wine club on a one bottle allocation limit.To celebrate this release there’s a short video about the wine.The inspiration came many years ago at one of his father’s Wineand Food Society dinners wherehe had the privilege of tastingwines presented by the winemakerfor the Australian firm Hardy’s,who presented vintage and tawnystyle Ports that were originallyfrom the same tank. One had beenbottled after 18 months (Vintage)and the other at 20 years (ShowTawny).THIS IS SONOMACAB COUNTRY.TASTING LOUNGEopen dailyappointments recommended9 07 7 H i g h w ay 12in Kenwood707.282.9169bw isev in ey a r ds .co mMention this ad to receive anenhanced tasting experience.This is a wine to sip afterdinner, by itself or maybe withblue cheese, while thinking ofwhat has happened over ten years.Age has lead to some browningand lightening of color (just as acut apple goes brown, hence thetawny descriptor), has also givenincredible richness to the wineand this leads to a warm andlingering finish.Loxton Cellars is located at11466 Dunbar Road in GlenEllen, CA 94552 and is open dailyfrom 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For moreinformation, call (707) 935-7221or visit www.loxtonwines.com.Follow us on twitter @WineCountrytW

There are severalrestaurants in proximity, including a serviceable Chinese for takeout,and drug store, bottle shop and breakfast spot within walkingdistance if you’ve had enough time behind the wheel. You seriouslycan’t beat Lone Oak for value, convenience, comfort and quiet.

sANtA CLArA/sANtA CruZ/MoNtereY CouNties | WiNe CouNtrY tHis WeeKCelebrate National Great Outdoors Monthin June, National Picnic Month in JulyHyatt Carmel Highlands overlooking Big sur Coastinvites You to take a Hike and Let them show You the Beauty!Hyatt Carmel Highlands Overlooking Big Sur Coast, Carmel’squintessential destination retreat, is celebrating National GreatOutdoors Month in June and National Picnic month in July with anew hiking and picnic package! Guests will meander beautiful coastaltrails experience scenic views, flora, fauna and fun with anexperienced Big Sur guide. The chefs have prepared a picnic lunchsure to match the incredible scenery of the Big Sur coastline. Thekeepsake picnic backpack will forever remind you of this stunningexperience. Package prices begin at $600. (Package availablebeginning June 1, 2013)Hikes are led by Stephan Copeland, a Big Sur hiking expert. Forthe past 32 years Copeland has been in the business of providingguided hikes and walks, for people of varying capabilities, into thebreathtaking Big Sur Wilderness. Let him introduce you to themigrating California Grey Whale, where you can get wet from thespout; listen to the sounds of cascading water flowing down a canyonlaced with 7- and 8-hundred-year-old California Coastal Redwoods;explore the most secret of water falls and so much more. One of theguided hikes will take you to the only forest in Big Sur where the onlything between you and the sky are at least 10 thousand MonarchButterflies.Hyatt Carmel Highlands offers several different hiking excursions:the Walk of the Married redwoodsAs one drives to the trail head, it would be impossible not tonotice the incredible vistas this journey through the Big Sur hillsideoffers. The actual 2- to 2.5-hour walk, mostly in flat terrain, traversesone of the lushest canyons within the area, accompanied all the wayby the sights and sounds of rushing water. One can truly get a feel forthe serene beauty of Big Sur. This walk also features a very specialvisual surprise provided by Nature herself … let them show it to you.robinson Jeffers WalkIf the contrast between green and blue excites you, this walk is foryou. This walk is the best example of Robinson Jeffer’s famous quote,“Big Sur is the greatest meeting of land and sea in the world.” Hikerswill first make their way up through a lavishly twisting canyon,overlooking terracing waterfalls, while visually experiencing shades ofgreen that one never knew existed, eventually making their way toone of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. This walk clearlyoffers a much more intimate relationship with the nature of the area.After leaving the canyon, head down to the sea, where the land seemsto melt into the ocean; and where the seal, otter and occasionalhumpback whale might be observed. Never will you see such variousshades of blue.70Meditation WalkFor the guest that is striving to attain that inner peace that onlymeditation can provide, consider the Meditation Walk, A three-hourexperience that starts with a little yoga. Then off to the trail head a 30minute drive back into the wilderness, with views of the CaliforniaCoast that only the Red Tail Hawk sees. Upon arrival at the trail head,walkers will embark upon the trail and traverse the Little Sur Riverfor one hour; silently, while trying to attain oneness with the forest.After one hour, break for lunch. At this time conversation ispermitted. After lunch, a little more yoga, and then the return to thetrail head, once again, silently. The rewards from this experience lasteternally.Bluff trailThis particular walk glides above the ocean about 80 feet from thesea, on a bluff where guests will walk south observing a myriad ofboth plant and animal life. The smell of the sea coupled with that ofCalifornia sage and a hint of fennel, are overpowering on this walkthat will follow a path to the seashore. A good part of this walk isspent discovering the various coves that are secretly tucked awaythroughout this beach walk.Waterfall WalkThis particular trek introduces you to the Big Sur River, the largestriver in the area and specifically shows you two great secludedgetaways; a perfect place for a picnic with someone you really careabout. If the river is cooperating, hikers will cross it and search outsome beautiful meadows where one might find a fallen hawk or owlfeather. At this point, head east to view a fairly recent waterfallstunning to the eye. For the person who might want a tad moreexercise, Hyatt Carmel Highlands offers one hike, rather than walk.This hike combines the best ingredients of all the walks in that itprovides the added stimulus of sight from 500 feet of elevation! Thebeauty of Big Sur from this elevation is unparalleled.For more information regarding Hyatt Carmel Highlands newtravel package available beginning June 1, 2013, visitwww.hyattcarmelhighlands.com or call (831) 620-1234.About Hyatt Carmel Highlands, overlooking Big sur CoastHyatt Carmel Highlands combines true Carmel luxury with anapproachable and sophisticated spirit.
