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 rby Len NapolitanoHow does wine get color?White wine, rosé wine and red wine span a range of color fromvery pale yellow to pink to deep purple. There’s a world of differencesamong the styles of these wines and the ways they are made. But theway in which they each achieve their own degree of color is simplydependent upon how much time the grape skins spend in contactwith the grape juice.As the juice from crushed red grapes remains in contact with thegrape skins, the pigments of the skins add color to the juice. This iscalled maceration time. Depending on the wine and the winemaker’spreference, it could last from several days to several weeks. Thelonger the maceration period, the darker the wine’s final color.Throughout the maceration, the skins tend to rise to the top, fromthe carbon dioxide that is released during fermentation. This “cap” ofskins is regularly pushed back into the juice or “punched down,” toextract as much color from the skins as possible.Before white wine is fermented, the juice is separated from theskins, thereby having little or no contact with the grape skins.White wine can be made from either red or white grapes becausethe juice coming from any grape is always clear, but only red grapeswill be used to make red wine.When rosé wine is being made, the grape skins are left in contactwith the fermenting juice for a time period just long enough to createa pink-colored juice. Then the skins are removed and the remainingjuice is fermented in the same manner as juice for making whitewine.Len Napolitano lives in San Luis Obispo County and is certified in wine by the Society of Wine Educators,Wine & Spirits Education Trust and Chicago Wine School and continually gains knowledge from his frequent contactwith California winemakers.

St. Francis has more than 600 acres ofestate vineyards in Sonoma Valley and the fabled RussianRiver Valley. Each come together to form wonderfulexamples of their consistent winemaking philosophy, whichin a few expressive words comes down to “maximumextraction, minimal intervention.” In other words, they takethe most from every cluster, and let the varietals speak forthemselves.The construction of St. Francis’ state-of-the-art winerywas fortuitously completed just in time for the 1999harvest. This new winery, with its mountain views, issituated on the Wild Oak Vineyard, just a mile from theoriginal facility. It was named after St. Francis of Assisi,whose role was as a protector of the natural world. It alsopays homage to the historic Franciscan order, whichbrought the European style of grape cultivation to thiscontinent centuries ago.The visitors center was finished two years later, andbecame an instant success with wine lovers. Today, theproperty also has “green” aspects to it, not the least of whichis the fact that their solar panels would supply enoughelectricity to power over 250 single-family homes.To sample their wines you have two attractive tastingroom options. In the Artisan Tasting five small-productionArtisan Series wines are poured. These are wines availableonly at the winery. The Estate Tasting also offers a flight offive, including wines from their hillside Cabernet vineyardsin the Russian River Valley to the original Sonoma ValleyChardonnay and Merlot vineyards.

He loved thewines from Burgundy, but he would eventually expand his winery’sofferings to Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. The first ZDvintage consisted of 300 cases made in a rented farm building in1968. They started with minimal investment of $6,000, an almostlaughable amount for a winery start-up these days. In 1979, ZDmoved to their current location in Rutherford. On this six-acre parcel,the deLeuze Family built a winery and in 1993 it was upgraded withstate-of-the-art production technology and built a warm, invitingtasting room. Now, more than 40 years since that first vintage,ZD Wines has become internationally known for its consistentworld-class wines and warm and personable visitor experiences.Today, the most exclusive and unique wine from ZD is Abacus. It isa Solera-style wine, which means it uses multiple vintages of wine inits complex and outstanding construction. In the case of Abacus, thiswill always include every vintage of ZD’s award-winning ReserveCabernet Sauvignon, starting with the original vintage of 1992. Thelatest release of this spectacular wine, the Abacus XIII, consists of 19consecutive vintages of ZD Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, from 1992to 2010. With an annual production of just over 200 cases, the wineis hard to come by but well worth it when you do.ZD offers three very unique and exclusive ways to taste Abacus.You may call the winery to set up a private Abacus showing thatincludes a comprehensive tour of the cellar with barrel samples alongwith a sit down tasting that includes the rest of the reserve wines fromZD paired to cheese and charcuterie. In addition to this tasting, youcould join the owners of ZD Wines, the deLeuze Family, along withtheir staff and winemaking team for either the Abacus Winter WineEscape or an upcoming Abacus Brunch. The Winter Wine Escapetakes place every year in January and is a weekend affair that includesa number of special events, and a wine dinner and lodging at one ofthe Napa Valley’s finest resorts. If you can’t wait for winter, you maywant to attend the Abacus Brunch held the weekend of Auction NapaValley. Less than twenty seats are available for this multi-coursebrunch paired to ZD Reserve Wines. It finishes with a vertical tastingof past Abacus releases. To find out more about Abacus or to attendone of these events, contact the winery.ZD has operated for more than 40 years and has always focused onconducting business in a sustainable manner. They knew early on thatthey wanted to farm organically and promote the health of the soiland the surrounding environment. “To create healthy and nutrientrich soils, and the result will be vines that produce healthy grape withrich flavors,” said CEO Robert deLeuze. “It’s all about the soil. Richand dense…you’ll find the same characteristics in our wine.”Follow us on twitter @WineCountrytW

But thenagain, this is California, so in the end it is our own style thatdefines our wines. For me, vineyard balance is first, whichmeans location makes a huge impact: the types of soil, the actuallocation of the vineyard and the climate. Balance includeseverything from the roots of the vines to the fruit itself.”Based on his beliefs and convictions, the characteristics anddemands of the individual varietal determines whether thefermentation process is carried out in stainless steel, oak, orboth. Cooperage – barrel ageing – is also tailored to the wine.He employs a portion of American oak while the rest of the timeit is French oak. The wines are then aged in the bottle for aminimum of a year before going to market. The Estate Reservebottlings, which have a following of their own and are extremelycoveted, are kept “on oak” longer than other Sequoia Grovewines. Their signature wine remains their Bordeaux-styleCabernet. “Last year was – how should I say it? – challenging isprobably the best word. The weather, the growing times, it allwas a unique experience. But in in spite of it – or most likelybecause of it – I believe we are going to get great wine from thatharvest. We also now have close to 80 percent estate-grownvineyards which, as a winemaker, is incredible and because ofthat, the reds are becoming more and more hearty, year after yearafter year.”The tasting room is the perfect place to sample theseremarkable wines. Done in what might be considered “winecountry casual,” it is staffed by an affable group of people that areboth enthusiastic and well-versed in their profession.www.WineCountrythisWeek.com


WinE CountRy this WEEK | WinE CountRy nEWsdutcher Crossing Winery launches Winemaker’s Cellar series2011 Winemakers’ Cellar Dry Creek Valley Chardonnay from Rare Floral CloneLast month, Dutcher Crossing Winery launched the first wine of anew Winemakers’ Cellar series. “Everything we do has to be thesignature of terroir,” said owner Debra Mathy. This inaugural 2011Winemakers’ Cellar Dry Creek Valley Chardonnay is the first vintagefrom a seven-acre block on the winery estateplanted to a rare floral clone, Dijon Clone 809.Conceived as way for the winemakers to craftnew wines following the established DutcherCrossing winemaking footprint, the Winemakers’Cellar opens the door, beginning with this oneof-a-kindChardonnay.“We planted the vineyard block to Clone 809because it was on our winemaker’s wish list,”said Mathy. “Kerry Damskey has worked withthis clone for 10 years and is very familiar withthe distinctiveness it offers, including the apricot,peach and floral aromas and spicy, honeysuckleflavors.” Both Mathy and Damskey wanted to dosomething special with the planting. It was oneof the last blocks on the estate to be planted, and the ground layfallow for more than two years. A tight owner/winemaker team, theywork closely together on all vineyard and winemaking decisions. Thetrust developed in this partnership allows for wider guidelines withinthis new series.“The soil is optimum for a white varietal,” explained Damskey,“so I suggested Clone 809, as there is no crossover with any of ourother Dutcher Crossing wines.” Like Dijon Pinot Noir clones, this is amodern, cleaned-up clone from France isolated for specificcharacteristics. In earlier versions of these floral clones, only about 20percent of the vines would bear fruit expressing this characteristic,resulting in a more random outcome. “Clone 809 is morepredictable,” said Damskey, “because 100 percent of the vinesproduce grape clusters that show this floral quality.”The Chardonnay blend includes 10 percent Rousanne, whichadds texture and a slightly spicy character. “The purpose of addingthe Rousanne is to tone down the aromatics and give more depth inthe palate,” said Damskey. “The distinct earthdrivenspice of Rousanne provides acomplimentary marriage of flavors and aromas, notmore of the same.” Fermented in neutral Frenchoak barrels, the must was inoculated with nativeyeast. The native yeast consists of multiple strains,imparting an interesting texture and complexity tothe nose and palate. About half the wine wentthrough malolactic fermentation using nativemalolactic microorganisms. The wine rested inneutral oak until bottling.Brilliant yellow diamond color with a hint ofgreen, the wine presents alluring and slightlyexotic aromas and flavors of apricot, peach, greenapple and spicy floral notes, creating a multilayereddense fragrance on the nose and vibrant palate. Nicelybalanced with a bright, silky texture followed by a long lingeringfinish, it has the weight and palate of Chardonnay but with anoticeable floral characteristic.A distressed khaki label, giving a weathered look, reflects theearthiness of the winemakers’ endeavor and sets the wine apart fromthe other Dutcher Crossing labels. “This is the beginning of a newseries in our portfolio that will be added to when vintage dictates,”said Mathy. “This is just the beginning….”The wine is available in the tasting room at 8533 Dry Creek RoadGayserville, CA 95448.

WinE CountRy nEWs | WinE CountRy this WEEKWINEMAKER PROFILE: ARROWOOD VINEYARDS & WINERYHEIDI VON DER MEHDEN34ARRoWoodVinEyARds & WinERy‘the cabernet Sauvignon destination in Sonoma Valley.’14347 Sonoma highway, glen ellen, cA 954421-800-938-5170 or (707) 935-2600email: hospitality@arrowoodvineyards.com“To me, winemaking is a balance of artistry and science. With every vintage,it is my goal to capture the essence of Sonoma Valley while producing winesworthy of the Arrowood label,” Heidi von der Mehden, Arrowood Winemaker.Heidi’s passion for this region truly comes through the wines she creates.Consumers can experience Heidi’s winemaking philosophies in every bottle ofArrowood wine: Accept the challenges that Mother Nature throws your way;continue learning new techniques to improve the production and quality of wine;and remember to stay true to your style. However, her area of study was far fromthe agricultural mainstay the county has to offer. “My fascination with chemistrybegan in high school,” says von der Mehden. “It led me down an interestingcareer path that took me around the world. But ultimately I knew that my heartwas in Sonoma County.” Upon her return, she put her chemistry background towork in the wine industry. Her career began in Sonoma Valley at Kenwood whereshe worked for four harvests. During this time Heidi became very familiar withthe different vineyards and developed great relationships with the growers in thearea – something that would prove very beneficial years later. She eventually leftSonoma Valley to continue her career in the winemaking field.In 2007, Heidi had the opportunity to come back to Sonoma Valley when shejoined Arrowood Winery as Assistant Winemaker. “I was drawn to this winerybecause it brought me back to the valley where I started my wine career,”remarked Heidi. “It also gave me the opportunity to work closely withWinemaster Richard Arrowood and learn from his more than 40 years ofwinemaking experience.” This successful partnership led to von der Mehdentaking over as Head Winemaker in 2010. How will she continue the legacy ofArrowood while making her own winemaking mark? First, by staying true to theArrowood style that has won the winery critical acclaim and fans all over theworld. And second, by continuing to learn, improve and evolve the winemakingprocess. One additional perk – unlike many chemists, Heidi gets to experiencethe fruits of her labor with every new release.As a Sonoma Valley Winemaker, Heidi knows the hidden varietal gem of theregion – Cabernet Sauvignon. She explains, “The Mayacamas Mountains and theSonoma Mountain areas produce outstanding concentrated fruit. Many wineconsumers don’t realize the number of fabulous Cab vineyards that exist minutesfrom the winery.” And with over nine current releases available in the tastingroom, Arrowood is the Cabernet Sauvignon destination in Sonoma Valley. Whenasked which new Cabernet Sauvignon release she is most excited about:“Definitely the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, Réserve Spéciale. I just finishedblending it. ’09 was a great vintage. This Réserve is the epitome of Sonoma Valleyelegance with refined tannins – a classic Arrowood Cab. It’s going to be so good.”When she’s not walking the vineyards, blending barrels or analyzing wine,Heidi can be found in the Arrowood Library Room reviewing vintages datingback to 1985. “There is so much Arrowood history in this Library. It’s thrilling tosee how the winery has evolved over the past 27 years while remaining true tothe passion that built this label.”The Arrowood Library opened this month and showcases Arrowood vintagesback to 1985 available to guests, collectors and connoisseurs.Arrowood’s Winemaker Dinner will be held Saturday, May 19 and will featurethe 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, Réserve Spéciale.

DAVISVIANSA WINERYBY AlexAnDrA chArSleYLloyd W. Davis is president and co-owner of Viansa Wineryand Marketplace in picturesque Sonoma. His winery is one ofthe first you will see on your way into town and he takes greatpride in leading his team. He has taken the scenic route tofollow his dream but along the way he has gained experiencethat has put Viansa on the road to distinction.While originally from Manhattan, Lloyd’s financialbackground providing capital to companies led him to Viansaand when the opportunity arose to be directly involved, hejumped at the chance and hasn’t looked back since. As soon asyou walk into the tasting room and outdoor patio, you willnotice all of Lloyd’s improvements. He is committed tomaintaining Viansa’s Italian heritage by offering Italian winevarietals, olive oils and other house-made delicacies. I askedhim what his greatest achievement was since taking over andhe said, “I’m most proud of bringing the winery back, thequality of wine that we now produce, the merchandise and, ofcourse, all of our food products.”With his business experience, he immediately knew changeshad to be made in order to make Viansa an exciting place tovisit with exceptional quality wines. Since they are a winery, heput the focus on the vineyards and wine production. He hasworked with a viticulturist to produce the best crops andactually cut back on the harvest yield in order to concentratethe flavors of the grapes. He has also introduced his “SignatureSeries” wines which are made from premium grapes aroundSonoma County. Since only 150 cases are made each year, theyrepresent the highest quality of wine produced here at Viansa.Lloyd works with his winemaking team daily to make a style ofwine that appeals to everyone. They are well balanced and canstand alone or pair well with food. His vision is to createpremium wine while keeping it fun and relaxing. After all,Sonoma is a very relaxing place and wine should be enjoyed,not intimidating. With the vineyard changes, they produce lesswine and are now starting to run out so he is pleased with theprogress over the past four years and will continue to lead hiswinemaking team to ensure future success.Their Italian Marketplace is full of fabulous finds and youcan even purchase wines by the glass to enjoy on their patiooverlooking the vineyards. After your wine tasting, be sureto sample some of their house-made chutneys, sauces andolive oils.Follow us on twitter @WineCountrytW

SAN FRANCISCOROAD CLOSEDAVENUE DAVENUE EROAD CLOSEDAVENUE HAVENUE IAVENUE MAVENUE NOAKLANDWine Tasting ontREAsuRE islAndTreasured Benefactors – Winemakers Give Back to the CommunityBY terri hillerTreasure Island’s local community of vintners are much more thanjust winemakers, entrepreneurs and viticulturists. They arephilanthropists who advocate for the less fortunate by giving back totheir communities. Their generosity exemplifies a socialconsciousness and awareness we can all contribute to.Josh Stein of Stein Family Wines donates a portion of the sale oftheir wines “to educational organizations that provide collegescholarships for the students of the Napa Valley so that the childrenof wine workers may have choices their parents did not.” PurchasingStein’s wines contributes to a more equitable future for the children ofthose who labor among the vineyards.Derek Rohlffs created BRAVIUM, meaning reward, prize or gift.His Sip&Give program designates a portion of the proceeds of hiswine sales to various charities his clients choose like the Leukemia &Lymphoma Society and the International Myeloma Foundation.Giving back to help the less fortunate is an integral part of thiswinery’s DNA. Last year, with the help of his clients’ purchases, hegave back over $5000 and is shooting for $10,000 in 2012.Robert Amox of Knightswood Vineyards and Winery works yearroundcontributing to charitable organizations such as Marin CountyAssisted Living, Toys for Tots, Wa Sung Community Service Club,Rotary Clubs and Breast Cancer Research. His private label wine,Phred’s Red, was produced and bottled to honor the memory of hislate Basset Hound, Phred. Donations and proceeds of Phred’s Redsupport the efforts of dozens of companion animal rescue groupsthroughout the United States, culminating in a live auction lot of atrip for two including airfare, lodging and a personally guided tour ofSonoma wine country.Another charity-dedicated wine on Treasure Island is the“Compassion Blend” by Bryan Kane of The Winery SF. Sales of thiswine support Project Open Hand in San Francisco. POH provideshome delivered meals, groceries and nutrition counseling to peopleliving with HIV/AIDS, the homebound, critically ill and seniors.Bryan Kane believes that “one of our founding principles is to giveback to the local community.” In their first year of operations, hisefforts contributed over $35K to the Bay Area society.The increased awareness and patronage of this community ofwinemakers allows them to continue and grow their giftingprograms. We all benefit by supporting these artisan wines. Throughour visits and patronage of these wineries, we all become charitablebenefactors.tREAsuRE islAnd WinERiEsBodEGA WinE EstAtEs751 13th Street at Avenue i, treasure island, San franciscofri, Sat and Sun from 1 to 6pm, 415-525-4154Free tasting for two with adA collection of family wineries – the venue promises a truly uniqueand enjoyable wine tasting experience with spectacular views of theCity.
