y Michelle J. BakerWINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWSWine Garage – Here Comes the Jug!Wine Garage founder Todd Miller drilled a couple of holes inthe wall at his bustling Calistoga wine shop nearly two yearsago in anxious anticipation of having his own winery’s juiceflowing from one side of the wall to happy customers waiting on theother side.Well, it took a while, but the Wine Garage winery is finally openfor business. From those holes in the wall now hang a couple of fabricatedstainless steel nozzles, and out of them flow two righteous anddelicious blends, B1 (a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon,Carmenere, Merlot and Petit Verdot) and R1 (a Rhone-style blend ofSyrah, Zinfandel, Grenache, Mourvedre and Petite Sirah). “My biggestproblem,” says Miller, “is that customers can’t decide which to buybecause they love them both so much.”And with good reason. Miller bought the individuallots of finished wine that make up eachblend from some of his personal winemakingfriends. The wine came from grapes from severalof Napa’s most prestigious vineyards. He’s swornto secrecy on the vineyard sources so the WineGarage blends don’t compete against the samewines priced at two, three or even four times whatMiller sells it for – just $29.99 for a half-gallonjug, filled to order.When Todd and Joy Miller moved to NapaValley in 2001, they were surprised to find thatthey could hardly find any wines for less than $45 a bottle. Then theywent to a dinner party at a winemaker’s home, and were shocked todiscover that many winemakers couldn’t afford to drink the winesthey made. That’s when the Millers decided to open the first wine shopin Napa Valley that only carried wines under $25 a bottle.So in 2003, Todd Miller swapped his corporate necktie for jeansand boots and started scouring Northern California for great, undiscoveredwines 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 samplesand finished wines. The winemakers, tickled to have a real, live winebuyer at their winery, shared stories with Miller over a glass of wineat the dinner table.The Wine Garage carries a wide selection of bargains fromSonoma and Napa, and gems from as far afield as Paso Robles, Lodi,the Sierra Foothills and Mendocino County. The store still doesn’tcarry any wines priced over $25, and Miller doesn’t buy a wine forthe store unless he loves it. What’s best is the Wine Garage staff takesthe guesswork out of wine shopping: tell the staff what you’re lookingfor and they will steer you to the perfect bottle.The Wine Garage is now a licensed winery, and in addition to theblends on tap, they produce a line of their own Wine Garage wineswww.WineCountryThisWeek.comfrom grapes they crush. For reds they offer aSonoma Coast Pinot Noir, Napa Valley Zinfandeland Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon; there arealso two whites, Joy Ride (named for Todd’s wifeand business partner, Joy), a lively blend ofAlbarino, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Muscat,and a 2008 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.The Wine Garage’s wine club is one of the bestdeals around. Club members can choose toreceive six bottles of red wine (or three red andthree white) six times per year for $100 per shipment,plus shipping. The Wine Garage also offersan “Intense Red” selection of massively concentrated and extractedwines, also six bottles six times per year for $125 per shipment, plusshipping.The Wine Garage, located at 1020 Foothill Boulevard (Highway29) in Calistoga, is open from 11 a.m. till 6:30 p.m. Monday thruSaturday and 11 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

WINERY FEATURE | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKCLINE CELLARSHeadquarters for Your Visit to the Carnerosby Nan ReileyCline Cellars may be unique in its varietyof delights for the visitor. Which will captivateyou the most – the historic farmhousetastingroom surrounded by six spring-fedpools teeming with carp, the museum thathouses replicas of all twenty-one CaliforniaSpanish missions, the aviary with its gorgeouspheasants from all over the world, the beautifulgrounds with flowers enough to keepfive gardeners busy, or might it just be theexcellent wine made here? In any case, planto take enough time to find out for yourself.Cline Cellars does not have its origins inSonoma County’s Carneros region. Itsowners, Fred Cline and his wife Nancy,founded the winery in 1982 in Oakley, atown east of the San Francisco Bay in ContraCosta County. Fred’s great-grandfather fromItaly, Valeriano Jacuzzi – yes, one of the sevenJacuzzi spa brothers – had settled there andFred spent many of his summers at his grandfather’sranch near Oakley, where he learnedabout wine grape cultivation and winemaking,a revered tradition in most Italianfamilies. Fred’s interest was serious enoughfor him to study agricultural management atUCD (University of California at Davis) andwith an inheritance from his grandfather, hestarted his own winery, Cline Cellars.Looking for additional acreage, Fred andNancy found and purchased a 350-acre olddairy farm just south of the town of Sonoma,where the winery now makes its home. Theoriginal farmhouse houses the tasting room.Its covered front and side porches have comfychairs and tables for visitors to enjoy winetasting, and the spacious lawns and gardenssurrounding it invite picnickers to lingerunder bird-filled olive and eucalyptus trees todrink in the rural beauty as well as the deliciousCline wines. A series of natural warmsprings have been dammed into big poolsrimmed with low stone walls. You can’t swim,but you can feed the ducks and the enormouscarp that dwell there. (History note: carp arenot native to America. The farm’s first ownerimported them from Germany and all carp inthe United States today began here.)The Cline family’s aim is to makeoutstanding Rhône-style wines, primarilyViognier, Syrah and Mourvèdre, with aspecial nod to Zinfandel. All Cline whitewines, which include Pinot Gris andMarsanne Roussanne as well as Viognier, areunoaked, making them fresh and crisp. The2008 Viognier has peachy, vanilla aromas andflavors and is a great value at $16. An evenbigger bargain is the 2006 Oakley Five Reds,a blend of five different red grape varieties. Atonly $11, this is a very good every-day wine,with cherry and spice flavors and a goodbody that works well with many differentfoods.Cline’s Zinfandel offerings are outstanding.Most of the grapes come from the Cline vineyardsin Oakley, many of which have 100-year-old-plus head-trained vines that producefruit of great intensity and flavor. Of specialinterest is Cline’s 2007 Heritage Zinfandel,available only at the tasting room. This is Zinat its best. You could taste just the Zinfandelsand have your trip be well worthwhile, butwhy not try Syrah and Ancient VinesMourvèdre and Carignane as well?You can walk off your picnic lunch with astroll to the site of the northernmost Californiamission, built in 1823, Mission SanFrancisco Solano (which later moved north tothe town of Sonoma). The Mission Museumwas built to house a collection of scale modelsof all twenty-one Spanish missions, whichreached from San Diego to Sonoma along the“El Camino Real.” These models, rendered inexquisite detail, were created by a group ofGerman cabinetmakers for the 1939 World’sFair at Treasure Island in San Francisco. Theywere purchased at auction in 1998 by theCline family, who thus prevented them from20 www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

P erfect Pairs BY MILLIE HOWIEBaldacci Family VineyardsRussian River Pinot Noir Pairedwith Strawberry, Mozzarellaand Balsamic Vinegar FlatbreadSometimes one word is adequate to describe the way a favoriterecipe and a special wine complement each other, and in the case ofthe Baldacci Family Vineyards’ first Russian River Pinot Noir that wordwould be “elegance.” As is common with the Baldacci family, many ofthe wines in their “Family Collection” are named for members of thefamily. This new Russian River Pinot Noir is named Mathilde forThomas Baldacci’s grandmother – a very elegant lady. It embodies allof the elegance and fluidity expected from Pinot Noirs whose grapesare grown in the cool environs of the Russian River Valley.Debi Cali, general manager of the young winery, describes thewine as “layered, with flavors of pomegranates, earth, cocoa,almonds and creamy vanilla.” Aged in 100% French oak (60% newbarrels) the wine brings brighter and more complex favors than theBaldacci Family “Elizabeth” Pinot Noir from the Carneros.In homage to Mathilde, Fran Leach, direct sales manager forBaldacci, created a unique recipe that highlights the complementaryharmony of the sweetness of the strawberries and balsamic vinegarmatched to the rich, vibrant, deep fruit flavors of the wine. Theingredients go together quickly and easily and the flatbreads areas appropriate served as an accompaniment to grilled meats orchicken at an outdoor barbecue as they would be served hotfrom the oven in a more formal setting. The recipe serveseight generously, but doubling the recipe may be a wise idea.And it might be wise as well to have a second bottle of theRussian River Pinot Noir ready to open since the flatbreadsand the wine go so splendidly together.6236 Silverado Trail, Napawww.baldaccivineyards.comSTRAWBERRY, MOZZARELLA ANDBALSAMIC VINEGAR FLATBREADYield: 6 servings• 1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced• 2 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegarof balsamic vinegar reduction• Freshly ground black pepper• 6 six-inch pita or flatbread rounds,whole wheat or white• Extra virgin olive oil, for brushing• Coarse salt• 5 two-inch small mozzarella balls• 5 fresh basil leavesPreheat the oven to 400 degrees, or preheat the grill tomedium.Combine the strawberries, vinegar, and a few grindsof pepper in a medium, non-reactive mixing bowl andlet stand at room temperature for at least 5 (and up to30) minutes.Brush the flatbread lightly on both sides with olive oiland sprinkle with salt to taste.Place on a baking sheet and heat in the oven 2minutes to soften; or place flat-breads directly on theheated grill for 2 minutes to soften and toast slightlyRemove, cut in quarters and return to bakingsheet.Slice the mozzarella into 1/2-inch-thick slices.Layer 3 to 4 mozzarella slices on the toastedpita quarters, and return to the oven until thecheese is puffy, about 2 minutes; or, place pitaquarters directly on the grill and close the liduntil the cheese is puffy, about 2 minutes.The cheese may get a few toasty brown spots,but watch carefully to prevent over-browningFinely chop the basil leaves and stir gentlyinto the strawberries.When the pita quarters come out of the ovenor off the grill, spoon the strawberry mixtureover the cheeseServe immediately.22www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

WineologyI 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 NapolitanoWhat are the proper conditions for storing wine?Proper wine storage becomes an important issue when youare keeping wines for the long term. If, however, you typicallydrink your wines within a month or so of purchase, the storageenvironment is less critical, but certain basic rules should stillbe followed.For either long- or short-term storage, the conditions thatdestroy wine are extreme temperature and humidity. Rooms orstorage areas with these conditions must be avoided. Thismeans not keeping the wines in an area where the ambienttemperature consistently reaches above 70 degrees or dipsbelow 45 degrees. Ideally, and especially for long-term keepingof quality wines, the temperature range should be narrowed to50° to 60°, for both red and white wines. Failing to keep winein within these extremes will either accelerate the aging (fromhigh-temperature conditions) or slow the aging (from coldtemperature conditions), and degrade the character andbalance of the wine. In addition, wines must not be subjectedto a wide swing in temperatures, more than 10 degrees withinshort periods of time. Gradual increases or decreases intemperature, such as when the seasons change, will not do anyharm.A wine will also be affected somewhat by a storage area’shumidity. The perfect level is around 75% humidity. When awine storage room reaches around 85%, the risk of mold oncorks and bottle labels is increased. Humidity levels below50% will increase the risk of wine evaporating and oxygenentering the bottle. Remember that storing bottles on theirsides will keep wine in contact with the cork and insure thatit remains moist. A dry cork will become brittle and eventuallyallow air to get to the wine, which also will ruin thequality of the wine.If you are a relatively serious wine collector, you may wantto consider a wine storage unit that works similar to a normalrefrigerator. The difference is in the wine storage unit’s precisecontrol of a proper storage temperature and humidity, in additionto having a vibration-damping design. A normal refrigerator’smotor will cause vibrations that will harm very old winesthat contain sediment. Wine storage units come in a widevariety of sizes and will have bottle shelves or drawers forholding as few as 24 bottles or as much as 2000 bottles, andsometimes more.In California, where basements are rare, the wine storageunit is a necessity for keeping valuable wines. If you have abasement that has fairly consistent temperature and humiditythroughout the year, you have a low-cost, convenient storagefacility. Always keep wines in a dark storage area, as sunlight,and to a lesser extent, fluorescent light will harm wines.Len Napolitano lives in Sonoma 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 hisfrequent contact with California winemakers.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKTasting Room of the Week:MAZZOCCO SONOMAby Charles NeaveZinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon andChardonnay: these varietals and the wordsDry Creek evoke strong thoughts andpleasant memories for those who have triedthe wines of Sonoma County’s MazzoccoSonoma. At this winery they are the result ofwhat they call “the geographic concept of‘place,’” which they define as those distinctivecharacteristics that make a site special orunique, as well as those elements that foster asense of attachment and belonging, andinfused with a combination of landscape orsetting.With such dynamic places of origin – theirvineyards are situated in the gentle hillsbetween the famed Dry Creek and AlexanderValleys – this small, artisanal, family-ownedwinery produces limited quantities of wines ofoutstanding quality and provenance. Indescribing them you will hear the word“sensory” more than a few times, and withgood reason, for they do reach out to thesenses in many, and often complex, ways. Andyes, they are eminently drinkable.The people, passion and commitmentbehind the winery is the Wilson family andtheir collection of diverse estate vineyards.Owners Ken and Diane Wilson have growngrapes in the country for more than twodecades and farm over 250 acres of winegrapes. They are most well known for theirvineyard designate classic Bordeaux varietalsand their rich Zinfandels. Each of the winesthey describe accurately as robust and sumptuous,yet individual in nature. And theycome from some of the most spectacularmountain fruit in the county. That, and theirreputation for innovation, have made theirwines some of the most sought-after labels inNorthern California.For a winery of this size, Mazzocco’s vineyardsources are among the most extraordinaryon the planet. So while the label may saysimply Dry Creek Valley, Mazzocco’s vineyardsare situated at elevations reaching up to 2,400feet on steep and dramatic hillsides with viewsof the Pacific Ocean. They hold low-yieldingvineyards that produce grapes with intenseflavor which is central to their wines.As they have said, “Our mantra is holistic,embracing all aspects of the vines’ health andphysiological development. It derives fromyears of experience ... observing this uniqueregional terroir and cultivating optimal conditions.“All vineyard work and winemaking techniquesare done by hand and aimed atbringing out the unique, intrinsic characterand true spirit of each individual varietal. Theresulting wines stimulate the senses, warm theheart and evoke a feeling of well-being. Theultimate pleasure derived from wine is acomplex interplay of sensorial perceptionsinvolving the eye, nose, palate and heart.”But find out for yourself. Go and visit theirbeautiful and comfortable tasting room andtry them. The friendly staff will guide youthrough their roster of wines, answer yourquestions, probably tell a story or two. Theywill tell you the characteristics of the winesthat are on their surprisingly extensive list ofbottlings for sale as well. The grounds arewonderful and a large wall of windows andsoaring ceiling helps to bring the outdoors in.You can enjoy the reflecting pool and thewater features, enjoy a picnic with a bottle oftheir wine, and in general absorb yourself inthis very special gem of a winery tasting roomjust 15 minutes from the Healdsburg townsquare. As they say, “Come buy some wineand chill out at the winery!”The Healdsburg tasting room of MazzoccoWinery is located at 1400 Lytton SpringsRoad. They are open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.every day of the week. For more informationor directions, call them toll free at 1-800-501-8466 or (707) 431-8159.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKWinemaker Profile: Hop Kiln WineryCHUCK MANSFIELDby Millie HowieIf someone were to compile a list of FAQ –Frequently Asked Questions – for winemakers,right at the top would most likely be“Which of your wines do you like the best?”Chuck Mansfield, winemaker at Hop KilnWinery, would probably reply: “Given thateach of our wines comes from different grapesand vineyards, producing each varietal is acompletely unique experience. All of themhave exciting characteristics and challengingones. While I like all of our wines, I amparticularly excited about the fruit coming offof our estate vineyards.”Chuck has worked with both the badand the beautiful growing up as he did inEl Dorado County where his dad is a highlyrespected grapegrower. By the time Chuckreached high school, he had developed aliking for chemistry which led him to enroll atCalifornia Polytechnic State University in SanLuis Obispo where, as a member of the inauguralclass of 2006, he helped develop a52curriculum establishing a major in Wine andViticulture. All the while he was adding to hispersonal skills, gaining field experience withthe Carron Corporation, learning about thecare of vineyards including techniques ofpruning, irrigation and development of newvineyards. He spent one season in the landdown under in Geelong, Australia, studyingwine science and advanced viticulture andlater he served as a research winery internpicking up the fundamentals of research,marketing and development projects fromfermentation to filtration at E. and J. GalloWinery in Modesto, CA.Returning to Placerville, Chuck becameassistant winemaker at David Girard Vineyardsadding practical experience with Rhôneand Bordeaux varieties to his growing store ofknowledge. In late spring 2007, he receivedan invitation to join the staff of Hop KilnWinery. At the exceptionally young age of 24,Chuck became responsible for producingestate grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noirwines under the winery’s premium HKGenerations and long-established Hop Kilnfavorites such as Big Red and ThousandFlowers.First introduced in 2006, the HK Generationsbrand represents the new cornerstone ofthe portfolio, reflecting a dedication toquality, respect for the property’s past andcommitment to the future. They echo thepopularity of Hop Kiln’s traditional style:bold, flavorful reds and fresh, bright whites.“We are pioneers in the creation of awardwinningproprietary blends,” says Chuck.“We believe that the acknowledgment of our2006 Sonoma County Pinot Noir receiving 91points from the Wine Spectator supports ourprediction for huge future potential.” Judgingfrom the exciting reception of the inauguralvintages, there should be a succession of highpoint scores in future vintages for HK GenerationsPinot Noir crafted by Chuck.Chuck’s wines may be sampled any day inthe tasting room between the hours of 10 a.m.and 5 p.m. Hop Kiln Winery is located at6050 Westside Road, Healdsburg.www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

This promotion will givewineries and winemakers an opportunity to reach a larger audienceand gain new followers, while providing Shadowbrook’s patrons withquality local wines, many of which are medal winners in state, nationaland international competitions. I also believe locals will find it awelcome alternative to the typical $125-per-person winemakerdinner.”The promotion is being done in concert with the Santa Cruz MountainsWinegrowers Association, and Burke said interest from winerieshas been strong and enthusiastic. To ensure that customers get the bestpossible information, wineries are required to have their Wednesdaytable staffed by the owner, winemaker or an equally informed individual.They are also asked to provide informational materials so theShadowbrook wait staff can be knowledgeable about the wines.For additional information on the schedule, call (831) 685-VINE(8463) or visit the web site at www.scmwa.com.Visit Our Tasting RoomOpen Tuesday – Sunday, Noon to 6pm45 W.

MONTEREY/CENTRAL COAST | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKTO MONTEREYPessagnoHAHNESTATESSMITH& HOOKVINEYARDS(PAVED ROAD)FOOTHILL RDRIVER ROADRIVER ROAD1012009 Santa Lucia Highlands'Pinot Noir Crush Wraps UpPisoni, McIntyre and Morgan Report Near Normal Yields,High Quality in the Santa Lucia HighlandsThe 2009 Pinot Noir harvest is wrapped up in the Santa LuciaHighlands appellation, with winegrowers reporting potentially veryhigh quality and normal yields. Some of California’s finest vineyardscall the S.L.H. home, with more than thirty winegrowers cultivatingover 2,500 acres of Pinot Noir there.At the Pisoni Vineyard, Gary Pisoni is very happy with the qualityof his just-completed Pinot Noir harvest: “The eventual ’09 vintagelooks very promising. It was the third consecutive dry winter whichlimited yields and the cool summer and fall, with only one small heatwave, gave us mature fruit at low sugar levels. We are seeing greatdensity, acidity and high tannin levels.” The crush at Pisoni ran alongfairly traditional timelines, beginning mid-September and finishingmid-October.Dan Lee of Morgan Winery is also excited about the quality of thePinot Noir off his organically farmed Double L Vineyard: “We startedpicking Pinot Noir on September 12 and are just now finishing up. Itis a light crop, at over 100 tons, about 20% less than a ‘normal’ year.The fruit is very focused; quality looks very good. At midsummer, wewere 5 to 10 days behind a ‘normal’ schedule. We had a temperateAugust with less fog and one warm spell that caught us up in sugarlevels but not necessarily in flavor development. The winemaker thatlooks to the flavors and not the sugar levels will be rewarded thisharvest – patience is key.”At neighboring McIntyre Vineyard, this year marked the thirtythirdPinot Noir crush on one of the district’s oldest, sustainablyfarmed estates. Owner Steve McIntyre: “It was a great growing season,on par with ’07, until Labor Day. Some ‘heat spikes’ then acceleratedsugar numbers with phenolic balance lagging behind. Happily, coolfall weather has allowed the flavors to catch up and the fruit webrought in looks very good indeed. Just slightly higher than normalcrop levels off the McIntyre property but very high quality. The ’09vintage? Cool temperatures, no damaging rain, gentle ripening – justanother perfect Pinot harvest in paradise.”The Santa Lucia Highlands is one of the crown jewels of Californiaviticulture, growing and producing some of the state’s best coolclimate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. The appellation encompassesmore than 5,000 acres of prime vineyards; the area’s uniquecharacter was recognized with official A.V.A. status in 1991.Formed in 2005, the Wine Artisans of the Santa Lucia Highlandsis a formal association of vineyards and vintners whose primary goalis to promote this unique viticultural district and increase awarenessand appreciation of the Santa Lucia Highlands.The public is invited to sample the wines of the Highlands at a galatasting at Hahn Estates on Saturday, May 15, 2010.
