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 color change over time?Guessing a person’s age based only upon their appearance can bea difficult and delicate challenge. With wine, the guessing game isonly slightly easier, yet without the risk of embarrassment to you orthe subject.As wine ages in bottle its color passes through a series of stages ofmaturity. Upon examination in a glass tilted at an angle against awhite background, a typical young red wine that is less than threeyears old has a dense purple center, lessening in intensity toward therim. Over the next 5-10 years, the wine color will transition towarddeep red in the center, and slowly evolve into a reddish-brown color.Very mature red wines will show an even greater degree of brownin the center and have a rim color of tawny brown. Throughout theyears of aging, from youthful purple to mature brown, the colorpigments in red wine precipitate with the tannins and form intosediment at the bottom of the bottle. That is an indication that awine needs to be decanted before serving.Certain white wines also mature with time and reveal their agewith a change in color. White Burgundy from France and some CaliforniaChardonnays are two examples. Whereas red wines transitionfrom a dark, dense color to a paler shade of red-brown, the coloringof white wines will go in the opposite direction, going from a palestraw color to amber-gold.The color of wine, and its change over time, also depends onseveral other factors other than age. The particular variety of grape,the length of time the grape skins are in contact with the grape juiceduring and after fermentation, and the amount of time the winespends aging inside an oak barrel all contribute to a wine’s intensityof color in its youth and its subsequent development over time.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.

Sign up for our email newsletter at www.WineCountryThisWeek.comWINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWSWine Garage – Wine Shop ... or Winery?Most readers have learned overthe years that some of the bestwine-deals in Napa Valley can befound at the Wine Garage inCalistoga. When Todd and JoyMiller moved to Napa Valley in2001, they were surprised to findthat they could hardly find anywines for less than $45 a bottle.Then they went to a dinner partyat a winemaker’s home, and wereshocked to discover that manywinemakers couldn’t afford todrink the wines they made. That’swhen the Millers decided to openthe first wine shop in Napa Valleythat only carried wines under $25a bottle.So in 2003, Todd Millerswapped his corporate necktie forjeans and boots and startedscouring Northern California forgreat, undiscovered wines to offerat his new wine shop, the WineGarage in Calistoga. Miller drove the roads less traveled, meeting withwinemakers, walking in their vineyards and tasting their grapes,barrel samples and finished wines. The winemakers, tickled to have areal, live wine buyer at their winery, shared stories with Miller over aglass of wine at the dinner table.The Miller’s started a wine club three years ago shipping six bottleshipments for $100. Well, the club was so successful that last yeareven Rachael Ray heard about it and featured the Wine Garage on herTasty Travels show on the wine country.Way back in 2003, when Todd was getting permits for the store hehad a vision of selling wine right from the barrel in half gallon jugsjust like they do in France and Italy. To do that he needed an out rightwinery license and permit. He got them – much to the shock of thelocal winery folks because that kind of thinking was unheard of inNapa. You can’t be a “winery” and a “wine shop” at the same time inthe same place. No. Well actually yes, you can … under the rightcircumstances. The jug program was originally delayed due to thesuccess of the wine club but Todd did hire a winemaker and set offtrying to find deals on grapes just like he had on case goods. He drovearound after harvest and wrote down what vineyards still had fruit onthe vine that was unsold. He sought help from his many winemakerand vineyard manager friends. He found deals. He and his winemaker,Massimo Monticelli – a former assistant winemaker at SilverOak – made some wine. Good wine.Todd found some Cabernet grapes up on Diamond Mountain backin 2006 from a grower that was nervous about a rain storm coming inright during the peak of harvest. He cut a deal. Then he made anotherdeal on some Zinfandel and then later on some Syrah. After 18MASSIVE WINE SALEGet a mixed casefrom store at 20% off,or case of Wine Garagelabeled wine for 30% offduring month of Februarymonths in barrel the wine is ready. Gotaste it for yourself, for free.The Cabernet from the DiamondMountain section of Napa gets veryexpensive – up to $275 per bottle fromone winery – but the vineyard Toddfound was across the road from theboundary of the Diamond MountainAVA and sold for less money becauseyou couldn’t put “Diamond Mountain”on the label. The Wine Garage “Hillside”Cab sells for $45. It is yummy,too. Big and rich, dark in the glass,smooth tannins, ripe fruit, chocolatecovered coffee beans comes to mind.The Zin and Syrah are equally good andsell for less than the Cab, $30 and $25,respectfully.The Joy Ride is a white blend ofAlbarino, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognierand Muscat Canelli. The wine wasfermented completely dry in stainlesssteel tanks without malolactic fermentation.The nose is extremely fragrantwith white peach, apricot, meyer lemon and jasmine. The body is fullwith generous weight on the mid palate and a rich, silky mouthfeel.There is surprising acidity on the clean and crisp finish. This is aperfect wine for a wide variety of foods which include sushi, crackedcrab, lemon chicken and many cheeses.Fill ’er up with wine “pumped” into the half-gallon jugs from thespecially designed gas station nozzles. Two different Wine Garageblends are offered and filled to order, one Bordeaux based (read: Cab)and one Rhone (Syrah) and are selling for $29.99 per half gallon jugthat you fill yourself.Visit Wine Garage at 1020 Foothill Blvd. (Highway 29) in Calistoga;open every day from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. For more information,call (707) 942-5332 or visit the website at www.winegarage.net.11

WINERY FEATURE | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKT H E H E S S C O L L E C T I O Nby Michelle J. BakerA scant eight-minute ride hardly seemsout of the way or too far for all that awaitsvisitors to The Hess Collection, located in thehills just west of Napa. This scenic trip fromHighway 29 travels through the lushRedwood Valley and up into the MountVeeder appellation, and what you’ll find at thetop is a magical mountain estate where beautifulwine and world-class art are intricatelymeshed like fine silk.Hess Collection was founded by DonaldHess, a Swiss businessman who fell in lovewith Napa Valley on a business trip in the1980s to explore the possibility of expandinghis Swiss bottled water company to theUnited States. Mr. Hess leased the old ChristianBrothers winery on Mount Veeder, andafter two years of renovations opened thewinery to the public in 1989.The new space included an art museum todisplay Mr. Hess’ personal art collection, andtoday it is perhaps the finest assemblage ofcontemporary art available for public viewingin the entire North Bay. Since 1966, Mr. Hesshas collected art like a vertical of fine wine –rather than a piece here from one artist andthere from another, he gets to know eachartist personally and then collects many oftheir works over the course of time.The Hess Collection Contemporary ArtMuseum now displays less than one quarterof Mr. Hess’s total collection, much of whichis shown in other museums around theworld. This is staggering to consider giventhat the winery’s museum occupies 13,000square feet of space. Over the course of a yearapproximately 20% of the museum rotatesout and new pieces rotate in, so it’s alwaysworth a stop just to see what’s new.The other star at Hess Collection, ofcourse, is the wine, a vast selection from theMount Veeder estate and two other estateproperties, Allomi Vineyard on HowellMountain and Su’skol Vineyard nearCarneros. The Mount Veeder estate is a 900-acre parcel with more than 300 acres plantedto a smorgasbord of unique varietals (in additionto the predominant Cabernet Sauvignon)such as Gruner Vetliner, Petit Verdot, PetiteSirah and Malbec, all of which thrive in thecoolest climate in Napa Valley. The Carnerosvineyard, Su’skol is planted entirely toChardonnay, and the Howell Mountain vineyard,Allomi, primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon.The Hess Collection has been a leader inthe green winery movement for many years.Currently it is one of only six wineries withboth land and winery certification from theNapa Green Winery Program. In fact, over600 acres of the Mount Veeder estate are setaside as undeveloped land to support wild lifecorridors, fish friendly farming practices andbio-diversity. In the spring of 2008, the winerypurchased 24 goats (all of whom turned out tobe pregnant) for ground clearing and underbrushmanagement on the Mount Veederestate. Today, a herd of 100 goats controlweeds on the estate and are also stars on theweb at www.mountveederrocks.com.The winery offers tasting options for visitorswith lots of time or those who arekeeping a tight schedule. Just drop in for atasting of the “Small Block Series,” wines thatare made in small quantities from 60-700cases and only available at the winery. Thesewines offered at a very fair price in line withthe Hess philosophy that everyone has theright to drink fine wine every night. Drop-invisitors can also try a vertical of Hess CollectionMount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon fromthe library. This is a unique opportunity tosee how beautifully Cabernet Sauvignon candevelop over time in the bottle.With advanced reservations, visitors openPHOTOS COURTESY OF THE HESS COLLECTION20 www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWSB Cellars Blends Varietals to Develop Distinct FlavorsWhen B Cellars (www.bcellars.com) founder Jim Borsack firstencountered his partner Duffy Keys at a fourth of July barbecue in2002, both executives were exploring new life paths in the wine business.Over a drop of the good stuff, of course, their journeys becameintertwined when they discovered that they not only shared the sametastes in wine but were also on parallel missions to acquire vineyardproperty.In the spring of 2003, they scrapped their solo endeavors, formedB Cellars, and got serious about structuring a first-rate wine companypredicated upon two absolute principles: first, to produce exceptionalartisan wines, season after season, by employing a multi-vineyardstrategy, and second, to develop distinct flavors by blending winesfrom mutually complementary varietals.Not long after they met the third key player, Kirk Venge named“One of the Top 20 New Winemakers in the World” by Food & WineMagazine (October 2005). Kirk brought with him a 37-year winemakinglegacy via his father, Nils, and a keen understanding of theNapa appellation. A bond was established almost immediately. Allteam members were in concert with the idea of blending the finest redwines from the Napa Valley Appellation, and Kirk was given themandate to create three proprietary blends of consummate qualityfrom year to year.The B Cellars name and logo stand for a commitment to seasonlessexcellence. The letter “b” and the degree symbol (º) refer to brix, aB Cellars Tasting Room, Calistogawine term which defines the optimal sugar/alcohol content in grapejuice that indicates the potential for greatness. B Cellars is committedto the artisan approach, creating perfectly balanced and complexwines.Taste the wines at the B Cellars tasting room, 400 Silverado Trail inCalistoga; open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information,call (707) 709-8787 or visit the website at www.bcellars.com.

MankasWoodenRd ValleyS U I S U N V A L L E YBenefits of Joining the Vezer Family Vineyard Wine Club28As Frank Vezer says withgreat pride, “The 2006 and2007 vintages of Vezer Cabsand Zins rock the house.” Inthe last 18 months, both inthe major national and internationalcompetitions, Vezerhas won gold, double goldand tied for “Best in Class for North Central Coast Appellation.”Only some of the finest restaurants and wine shops in thecountry carry Vezer, and only by special arrangement. The winesrange from $50 to $100 retail, but wine club members get a greatdiscount and a guaranteed of allocations. If you try to get this wineanywhere else – if you can even find it – you can expect to payclose, to or more than, $200 per bottle. The winery has discoveredthat when people join they do not let their membership go. In fact,Vezer has one of the highest club retentions of all time. There are manyreasons to join other than the award-winning wine shipments and thebenefits that give you VIP status and recognition. There’s ambiancethat you simply cannot get anywhere else, free tastings for up to fourto six people, a private tasting room and club room onsite, ATV tours,free wine club pick-up parties with live music, exceptional food andwine served right from the barrels.Winter pick-up parties are usually barrel burning events, roastinglinguica, Hungarian Paprika Bacon and sausages from all over theworld, accompanied by hearty Zins, some seductive Cabernets, PetiteSirah and Barrel Room Select Blends. And try roasting smores over theopen fire while tasting some of the finest white and ruby Ports.At the spring and summer pick-up parties there are outdoormovies, barbecues and live music in the gardens, either at the PrivateRanch or the small Western Village of Mankas Corner. (The Vezer’sbought Mankas Corner, in its entirety, several years back and renovatedinto a European-style oasis. Here you feel like you were on theset with Russell Crowe in the movie “A Good Year.”) Throughoutthe year there are special concerts and formal dinners at the wineryand at the private ranch. Just imagine one of America’s greatesttenors starting with the ballet “Besame Mucho” as the light slowlyturns its focus on the star standing in the middle of the vineyard,secluded in a private mile-long valley owned by the Vezer’s, then allthe sudden this beautifulblond in a cobalt blue gownstarts on the hillside nearbywith an instrumental solowith her electric violin thatsimply resonates throughoutthe valley. Just as thesommelier pours you a wineright from a magnum of one of Vezer’s private reserves, all whileenjoying wild boar, Moroccan chicken or filet mignon. As ownerFrank Vezer says, “It is truly the opportunity of a lifetime, and it is herefor you to enjoy!”The wine club, due to the limited production and quaint privatesettings is anticipated to be capped at 1,000 members. The Clubconsists of 250 spots for Chieftains – VIP Chairmen’s, and 750 Elitemembers and these two quotas are quickly filling up.

WINE COUNTRY NEWS | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKInsignia and Backus Vineyard Cabernet SauvignonTwo Award-Winning Wines from Joseph Phelps VineyardsJoseph Phelps Vineyards has longproduced world-class award-winning winesand we take special pride in our two CabernetSauvignon based wines: our flagship wineInsignia and the Backus Vineyard CabernetSauvignon. These two wines represent oppositeends of the spectrum in approaches towinemaking: the art of blending vineyardsand varietals versus a single-vineyardapproach. Insignia represents the art of theblend: the best blend from what our estatevineyards located throughout Napa Valley canproduce and the best blend of available estateBordeaux varietals in any given vintage.Backus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon representsthe best of what a single vineyard canproduce year after year, and from a veryunique terroir.When Joe Phelps envisioned the term“Insignia,” it was to represent the finest lots ofBordeaux grape varietals available from eachvintage. Originally sourced from the bestgrower fruit, beginning with the 1990 vintageInsignia was produced primarily from estategrowngrapes in the Stags Leap District andRutherford Bench – two of the most desirablesources for Cabernet Sauvignon in California.30Since the 2004 vintage, Insignia has beencrafted entirely from Estate Vineyards.In its 35 years of existence, Insignia hasconsistently ranked among the top wines inCalifornia, if not the world. Our 2007Insignia, released September 1, 2010,received 98 points from Robert Parker, Jr.’sWine Advocate, 96 points from Wine Spectator,94 points from Stephen Tanzer’s InternationalWine Cellar, 94 points from WineEnthusiast, 95 points from James Sucklingand 96 points from Connoisseur’s Guide toCalifornia Wine.Since the release of the first Insigniavintage in 1974, it has received 90 points orgreater in every vintage but two. And since1990, Insignia has been rated 90 points orhigher every year by both Wine Spectator andRobert Parker, Jr.’s The Wine Advocate. Infact, The Wine Spectator has named Insigniaits #1 Wine of the Year (2002 vintage), #3Wine of the Year (1994 vintage), and #5 Wineof the Year (1997 vintage) and it has beendesignated a Cellar Selection five times inaddition to the “Top 100” awards.Located on the southeastern corner ofSilverado Trail and Oakville Cross Road, theBackus Vineyard has long been known for itsiron-rich, steeply-terraced hillside soil andexceptional fruit. A picturesque, copperroofedstone smokehouse sits in the midst ofthe vineyard and is visible from the SilveradoTrail.In December of 1996, after having held along-term lease on the property since 1977,Joseph Phelps Vineyards purchased the entire45-acre parcel. Subsequent developmentincreased plantings to 21.5 acres and all of thework was done by hand. No tractors, trucksor ATVs were utilized in the preparing andplanting of the vineyard. Workers usedshovels and picks, pounded stakes by handand pick-axed through rock to lay and buryirrigation lines, end posts and trellis wiring.Backus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon isdistinctive for producing flavors and aromasof dark chocolate, black fruit, graphite andminerals, followed by lush, sweet and lengthytannins. The 2007 Backus Vineyard CabernetSauvignon was rated 97 points from RobertParker, Jr.’s The Wine Advocate, 96 points byJames Suckling, 97 points and “Wine of theYear” from Connoisseur’s Guide to CaliforniaWine, 95 points from Wine Enthusiast and96 points from Wine Spectator.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | CALISTOGAPlan for a Nature Break at Old Faithful Geyerby Christine PiccinWhen wine touring has tired you out, take a short detour fromHighway 29 beneath the lofty peak of Mt. St. Helena, for a naturebreak at Old Faithful Geyser of California.Centered in a small, grass-hemmed pond, the geyser beginscoughing puffs of steam which dissolve into the warm afternoon air.Then it starts to gurgle and bubble like a witch’s cauldron. Suddenlyit sends up a few spurts three or four feet high. After a few minutesof playful squirting, it erupts. It’s as if someone has opened a firehydrant straight into the sky. A column of 350-degree hot waterspouts from the rocky source, backlit by the sun. As it peaks, thesteaming water fans out into miniscule droplets that fall like shimmeringdiamond dust then disappears, leaving the pond as calm andserene as it was before the show began.Hot springs are numerous but there are only a handful of geysersin the world that can be relied on to erupt predictably and repeatedly.Old Faithful Geyser of California is one of those.A series of panels plus a video room explain the mysteries of California’sOld Faithful. The geyser is located at 1299 Tubbs Lane offHwy. 29 in Calistoga and is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information,call (707) 942-6463 or visit www.oldfaithfulgeyser.com.Sign up for our email newsletter at www.WineCountryThisWeek.com37

Spencer will be pouring his Block II Dry Riesling,and Bob Klindt will be pouring the 2009 Klindt Estate Pinot, hisdouble gold winning Viognier from Lolonis Vineyard fruit, severalMendocino Zinfandels and a brand new red field blend calledVittorio’s Secret. “Early Italian immigrants were pioneers of the CaliforniaWine Industry. Their favorite grape was Zinfandel, whichfound its way from Croatia via Italy to California. They recognizedthat Zinfandel could often be enhanced with small amounts ofcompatible varietals, and in their wisdom, interplanted them with theZinfandel. Carrignane, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Alicante and Matarowere among the favorites.When Vittorio Testa planted his vineyard in Calpella more than 50years ago he followed this tradition. Amidst the dominate Zinfandel,he planted Carrignane and Petite Sirah. However a scattering ofGrenache and Barbera has also been identified. Who knows whatother secrets Vittorio’s Vineyard may hold.”The open house will occur on February 13th, from 11 a.m. to 5p.m. The winemakers will be on hand and delighted to answer anyquestions you may have. The event is open to the public and therewill be a $5 fee that includes an engraved wine glass used for tastingall the wines.

MONTEREY/CENTRAL COAST | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKTasting Roomof the Week:Poetic CellarsKaty Lovellby Laura NessSometimes, instead of throwing caution tothe wind, you need to throw your GPS out thewindow and just trust the directions you’llfind on a winery’s website. This is one of thosecases. It will serve you ill to trust the theoreticalvagueness of misguided engineers attakeout-cluttered desks somewhere in MountainView.So, before hitting the road, download thenew iPhone app for the Santa Cruz Mountainswineries, or hit the Poetic Cellars website, toget the directions to this remarkably easy tofind little oasis in the middle of blessedlyuntouched territory in the hills above SantaCruz. Literally, it is only 11 minutes offHighway 17 from the Vine Hill exit. It onlyfeels like forever. You’ll breathe a sigh ofcontented relief as you head down thedriveway to Poetic Cellars: the scenery islovely, serene and there is an unmistakablesense of finally having reached a place that isuniquely like no other.Welcome to the place where all the wine isbottled poetry, and each of the bottles bearsits own unique poem inspired both by thewine inside and the woman who makesthem. Katy Lovell has been making wine for16 years, and enjoys every aspect of theprocess from picking the grapes to creatingthe labels for the bottles. Her partner, JosephNaegele, an attorney by trade, pens poetryfor each varietal or blend, matching prose tothe spirit of the grape.With eight varieties grown in her Livermorevineyard, and three additionally sourcedfrom local Santa Cruz Mountains vineyards,Katy makes everything from fruit-drivenChardonnay and Pinot, to rich, dense Syrahand Petite Sirah. Her signature varietal is herMourvedre: intriguingly smoky and sexy, buther blends are really growing her fan base.The well-decorated winery tasting roomoffers many options for browsing for art, winerelatedgifts and unique food items, includinglocally sourced Tabitha’s Appropriate Jams andB&R Farms apricot products. Open weekendsfrom noon to 5pm and by appointment,the spacious tasting room and sunny courtyardbeckons with plenty of tables for relaxed,unhurried tastings.You’re likely to meet either Katy herself,Joseph or Katy’s son, Zach, who helps her withforklifting of barrels, topping off, bottlinglabeling and so forth. Son Brett and daughterJulie also pitch in to help Mom with the neverendingset of tasks, including making cutecork reindeer at Christmas. Creativity runsdeep in this family: Katy’s previous careersinclude concert flutist and fiber artist, a talentshe shares with her mother.In fact, for April Passport in the Santa CruzMountains, two generations of Lovell’s,including Katy’s mom, will be exhibiting theirfiber crafts.When not weaving fiber, Katy enjoysweaving wine blends, like a poet lovespolishing off each participle to create theperfect wordplay on the page and in yourmind’s ear. The 2007 Poetic Cellars “Mantra,”a delicious blend of 45% Mourvedre, 45%Syrah and 10% Sangiovese, is a smooth,multi-layered experience of pure pleasure,balancing the racy, wild red fruits of theMourvedre with the depth and richness of theSyrah. Spritely Sangiovese adds charmingcherries and buttery smooth tannins to createa Mantra worth repeating over and over. Thismay become your favorite Rhone-style wineever!Another well-woven gem is the 2007Poetic Cellars “Ballad” Bordeaux Blend, equalparts of cassis and cigar-laden Cabernet Sauvignon,and smooth, dark chocolate Merlot,plus 10% Cabernet Franc, which provides theperfect balance of power. Low in alcohol, thisrestrained, elegant wine has lovely notes oflavender, dark cassis, caraway, cedar andtarragon, layered with cured Westphalianham, dark chocolate and intriguing hints ofspicy green olives.Katy will be releasing her newest blend,“Serenade,” for the winery’s two-year anniversaryon Valentine’s Day. Come visit and tastebottled poetry for yourself.P O E T I C C E L L A R SOpen Sat-Sun 12-5 or by appointment5000 Rodeo Gulch Road, Soquel(831) 462-3478 | www.poeticcellars.com62 Follow us on Twitter @WineCountryTW
