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 NAPOLITANOWhich wines are compatible with a wide variety of foods?This question arises often when I am out to dinner with agroup of people. I am asked to pick a wine for the table that willsatisfy everyone. This is almost impossible, not only because eachperson has their own preference for wine, but also because eachwill choose his or her own dinner independent of the others,which will invariably result in a wide variety of foods on thetable. The problem therefore becomes how to satisfy as manypeople as possible with one wine selection.Depending on the number of people at the table, one way toapproach the task is to order at least one type of white wine atleast one type of red wine. This is always my first choice whendining with more four or more people. The wines I like to selecton these occasions are light-bodied whites and medium-bodiedreds. For white, I find Sauvignon Blanc to be very versatile withSEDANS • STRETCH, HUMMER and EXCURSION limousinesTop quality limousines andexceptional chauffeur servicesince 1996800-310-8787www.famouscitylimo.comFirst Hour Freewith 6+ hour bookingMENTION WCTW WHENMAKING RESERVATIONSWINE TASTING • SPECIAL OCCASIONS • CORPORATE ACCOUNTSalmost all fish, vegetarian and chicken dishes. This wine typicallyhas a crisp, refreshing feel and doesn’t dominate food flavors.People who say they will only drink white wines will pretty muchalways feel comfortable with a Sauvignon Blanc.With the red wine selection for a group there are two roads Ican take, depending on the style of restaurant we’re in. If meatand game dishes and other big, flavorful meals dominate themenu, I like to make the red choice a blended wine. This couldbe one of many different blends, such as Cabernet Sauvignoncombined with Merlot, Cabernet with Shiraz or Cabernet withSangiovese. These wines combine richness of flavor with asmoothness that will appeal to many red wine drinkers. If,however, the menu is mostly middle-of-the-road style withpastas, chicken, light sauces and salads, I will usually select aPinot Noir as the red wine. This wine is probably the mostversatile of all reds, and will usually appeal to both red and whitewine lovers. When dining in French restaurants, you can call outfor a red Burgundy and know you will get a Pinot Noir.When you are unsure of which wine to order with a largegroup, these suggestions will help your odds of pleasing the mostpeople. In a quality restaurant, there is usually a wine expert onhand who can make suggestions, and you should feel free to takeadvantage of their knowledge of the menu and their wines thatpair best with it.Certified in Wine by the Society of Wine Educators and the Wine & Spirits Education Trust,Len Napolitano is the author of Nose, Legs, Body!

If I Could Keep Time in a Barrel…BY JOSH STEINJune brings heat, and with it, lots of things happen in the cellar.Over the winter and into early spring, with cellars cold, wines in barreltend to slowly blurb along, the yeasts gently doing their thing with thelast percent or two of residual sugars or the bacteria finishing up theconversion of malic to lactic acid, both of which are good for aromaand mouthfeel, but come the warmth of late spring, the wines inbarrel come alive again because heat speeds up reactions – just like inyour high school chem lab – which means decision time once again.For whites, generally Chardonnay but occasionally SauvignonBlanc or another oaked variety, this is when the secondary malolacticfermentation finishes if it has not already, and with the exception ofthose who are going for a long time in barrel, this is when theprevious fall’s white wines are bottled. Some whites, like SauvignonBlanc or Riesling, generally made in steel the whole time, would bereleased immediately, the freshness and vibrancy preserved for exactlyhow appealing these wines are when young.Most producers, however, would bottle oaked whites and thenallow them to age under glass for at least a few months, if not longer.This is not just about bottle shock from bottling, which does tend tojoin us atour tastingroommute or cause otherwise great wines to taste a bit off for a month ortwo. No, the anaerobic conditions actually allow the wines to againundergo a slow maturation, bringing out more mouthfeel andcomplexity through the lack of oxygen. This is why the wines “wakeup” when opened – they have returned to aerobic conditions,activating bouquet and flavors through the reintroduction of oxygen.Red wines, of course, take a parallel but different trajectory thanthe whites. Just about all reds spend time in oak, and spring willmean time to transfer, or “rack,” again as every few months barrelsneed to be topped up to reduce the oxygen of headspace, and thebest way to address this is to conslidate into fewer barrels. Thiscauses a gradual reduction of the overall wine in the cellar as barreledwines are racked out of their homes and then into either a new barrelor a tank, some folks deciding to maintain the integrity of each winelot while others allow for a general mixing in a larger tank beforegoing back to individual barrels again.Any given red spends eighteen to twenty-four months in thiscycle, and along the way, each racking creates a natural fining effect asparticles fall out of solution and end up in the belly of each barrel.These lees provide for complexity but also possible microbialcontamination, which is why the monitoring of each wine in barreland as it is racked is most important of all – we can taste and smellproblems far quicker through sensory monitoring, and knowing thatSpring brings warmth, and warmth speeds things up, simply meanspaying closer attention rather than necessarily doing anything at all.As I hope is clear, the reality of winemaking is that every step ofthe process presents a series of options. Regardless of which arechosen, or not, each time the winegrower chooses to tweak or not, torack or not, how often, the logistics of the racking, etc., all leave animpact on the final wine. While the processes are scientific,measurable, and generally predictable, the application is whereexperience and creativity come to the fore. Those willing toexperiment intentionally create an alternate path for their wines,choosing differently at the moments above, while those callingthemselves minimally impactful or conservative seek to decide ordisturb as little as possible. There is no one right answer, which iswhat makes winegrowing so much fun. If we knew all the answersahead of time, there’d be no point in doing it since wines tend tohave mnds of their own. Consider that when you pop the next bottleand enjoy!121426 Main Street, St. Helena, CA 94574 P:707.244.4600Josh Stein has been in the Napa wine business for more than a decade, and, in addition to being owner/winemakerof the Stein Family Wine Group, which produces a nationally and internationally distributed portfolio of wine brandsand donates 5% of its sales to the children of wineworkers in the form of college scholarships and support funds, heregularly consults for wineries and organizations throughout the North Bay and Coast via their subsidiaries, DiscreteWine Support Services and SF-Integrated Vineyard Management.Follow us on twitter @WineCountrytW

Jeff Hill’s obsession withgrowing great grapes for others via the Jeff Hill Vineyard Group led to hisown winery, created with wife Rebecca, and their goal of providing highquality “green” Napa wines at a great price. Everything produced is fromsustainably farmed or organic grapes and comes in certified organic andrecycled packaging. Hill Wine Company donates 2% of its proceeds to theASPCA and is also a proud member of 1% for the Planet in which 1% oftheir total revenue is donated to environmental causes.To help bring his vision of affordable and sustainable Napa wines to life,Jeff brought in two industry veterans, Philippe Langner and BrianBrakesman, and the combination of their different yet very similarperspectives on non-intervention have led to much success. Director ofWinemaking Langner was trained at his family’s French estate and at UCDavis before spending time at Chateaux Lafite Rothschild under famedinternational winemakers Jacques Boissenot and Michel Rolland. Theseexperiences led to his seven years at Napa’s Sullivan Vineyards, where JeffHill stole him away in 2008. Philippe’s philsophy is perfectly in accordwith the winery’s: “Get the best fruit and intervene as little as possibleduring winemaking to let the fruit speak for itself.” Doing so requires thekinds of experiences he has had with the finest of Bordeaux grapes,especially knowing what not to do so the flavors shine through.Where Langner brings European influences to the table, EstateWinemaker Brakesman is a Napa native, having been born and raised at hiswww.WineCountryThisWeek.com

Ideveloped, almost by osmosis, adeep knowledge of sustainable,responsible winemaking.” Afterattending Cal Poly San LuisObispo, he worked with famedwinemaker John Gibson,producing wines for SnowdenVineyards, Andrew Geoffery,and Salexis, among others.After a position as AssistantWinemaker for Duckhorn’sParaduxx, Brian went on tobecome Ledson’s Winemaker,which is where Jeff found him,bringing him into the fold forhis extensive knowledge of theten different Napa subappellationsused in the HillCompany releases.Unsurprisingly, these twogreat winemakers’ Hill WineCompany Estate Cabernet,Chardonnay, Merlot, andSauvignon Blanc releases havegathered high praise asaffordable luxuries, and theCraftsman-inspired tastingroom along the Silverado Trail isa warm and welcoming place totry them. For those seekingexceptional experiences, thewinery will be conducting teambuilding projects with Bordeauxblending seminars and “Be aWinemaker for a Day” programsvery soon.

And thewinery has been selected as Winery of theYear by the Quarterly Review of Wines andWine and Spirits Magazine.Of course, the early days of WhitehallLane were not quite as glamorous. The firstyears after Tom Leonardini Sr. boughtWhitehall Lane in 1993, a lot of hard workwent into building the foundation for thesuccess that the winery now enjoys.Whitehall Lane General Manager MichaelMcLoughlin remembers his first daysworking at the winery 20 years ago. His deskwas positioned below a leaky section of thewinery’s roof, and he worked next to abucket that caught the dripping rain.The Leonardinis spent long hoursupgrading the facilities, replanting thevineyard and buying new wine-makingequipment. They even cut back on wineproduction as they focused on the quality ofthe wine-making process, said McLoughlinBut the family has done so much morethan just put money into the winery. Led byTom Leonardini Sr., the family’s indeliblemark of hospitality, attention to detail andcommitment to quality is imprinted throughtheir hands-on approach to running theNapa Valley business. That investment haspaid off in superb wines.“Tom Leonardini is thinking aboutWhitehall Lane 24 hours a day, seven days aweek,” said McLoughlin.Today, three Leonardini family memberscontinue to shape the present and future ofWhitehall Lane. Tom Leonardini Sr. is stillthe hands-on owner. Tom Leonardini Jr.oversees national and internationaldistribution. And Katie Leonardini handlesdirect sales, hospitality and marketing.And the family ethic of quality overquantity still guides Whitehall Lane. Despitea permit to double their 50,000 case annualwine output, Whitehall Lane has decided tokeep production stable.At 20 years, the Leonardinis arecelebrating the past, while planning for thefuture.“The winery will be here 20, 30 yearsfrom now,” said Katie Leonardini. “This is agood spot to be in now.”In 1979, two brothers started theWhitehall Lane winery and directed theirwinemaking efforts successfully to Merlotand Cabernet Sauvignon. They named thewinery after the road that runs along thesouth border of the property.In 1993, the Leonardini Family of SanFrancisco took control of the Whitehall Laneestate. They updated the winemaking,instituted a new barrel-aging program andcontinued sourcing the finest vineyards. Thefamily now owns seven prime vineyardsincluding the Whitehall Lane EstateVineyard, Millenium Vineyard, BommaritoVineyard in the Rutherford Appellation, theLeonardini Vineyard, Fawn Park Vineyard inSt. Helena and the Oak Glen Vineyard in theOak Knoll District. The winery continues toreceive accolades and awards for producingsome of the greatest wines in the world.

Martini WineryBY ALExANDrA CHArSLEYLuxurious Cabernet Sauvignons are what people envision whenthey think of Napa Valley. Michael Martini, third generationwinemaker for Louis M. Martini Winery, has been producingexceptional Cabernet Sauvignon for over thirty years. Using familytraditions, international style and cutting-edge technology, he iscontinuing the long success of the Louis M. Martini wines.Located just off Highway 29 in St. Helena, Louis M. Martinicreated his winery in 1933. This year marks 80 years of the Martinifamily crafting Cabernet Sauvignon, the flagship wine of NapaValley. With the simple, honest premise that the best grapes makethe best wines, Louis M. Martini set out to acquire the finestvineyards in what is now one of the world’s most renowned wineproducingregions. Their legacy continues with Winemaker MikeMartini at the helm. Since the beginning of his tenure in 1977, hebrought a new winemaking philosophy, while honoring thewinery’s roots and commitment to delivering big, unforgettablewines.Reflecting on his international experiences, Mike stated, “Havingtraveled to France in 1981, I began instituting new techniquesstarting with extended maceration in all reds, and stem return inMerlots and Pinot Noirs. Later, we incorporated trellising practicesI saw in South Africa. Some of our present barrel aging techniquesstarted after observing what some of the top wineries in Europewere doing. All of this resulted in wines that create more mid palateand have more elegance and grace.”The purchase by E&J Gallo Winery in 2002, has given Mikeadditional man power and necessary lab capabilities. “We arefocused on the acquisition of top vineyard sourcing from Napa andSonoma. We have access to more vineyards but winemaking wasleft relatively untouched except for the ability to expand our highend capabilities with our small micro winery, Cellar 254, a gravityflow winery.” Mike says.When asked about his favorite wines, his response was “Myfavorite wines are of course the Monte Rosso wines, as well as Lot1. Both of these have grown in quality in an impressive way due tothe building of Cellar 254. The Monte Rosso labeled wines werestarted in 1979 but we have been making Cabernet Sauvignonwines out of the vineyard since 1938. After the building of Cellar254 in 2003 we have achieved a new level of finesse and style.”Louis M. Martini wines have more of an international style thanmost California wineries and through collaborative endeavors andstate-of-the-art facilities; the Martini family continues to build on atimeless tradition.sign up for our email newsletter at www.WineCountrythisWeek.com


JEFFERSON STWelcome toY O U N T V I L L ENew Woven Glass Sculpture fromWilliam Zweifel at RASgalleriesMADISON STGirard 1 JESSUP CELLARSPEDRONIMa(i)sonrySTARKEY ST29WEBBER STYOUNT STYOUNTVILLE CROSS RDTo Silverado TrailWASHINGTON STOn the heals of last fall’s successful Artist Reception and Showwith William Zweifel, three new and original woven glass sculpturesby the artist have been unveiled and are now available atRASgalleries Art Glass Gallery, 6540 Washington Street, Yountville,Napa Valley. Each is uniquely “Zweifel” combining a colored weavethat appears to have fallen into place and fitted perfectly on aseparate cast glass base.Fascinated by the fluid movements possible in kiln-fired glass,William Zweifel was drawn to the idea of actually finding a way toweave glass, giving his sculptures a new dimension and tactile quality.Years of experimentation, and a lot of broken glass later, he hasperfected a true glass wave that has become the hallmark of his work.“Tranquility as produced by the gentle movements of a line calls tomind memories of spring breezes and summer shadows,” he says.“It is the same feeling, the calmness, that I seek to recreate in glass.”William Zweifel“in studio” as he firesand forms his weave.A native of Chicago, Zweifel now works from his studio in rural southern Wisconsin. Hehas been working in glass full time for many years and continues to explore his vision.“Glass provides permanence, the ability to freeze a moment in time so that it can beexamined and explored, Zweifel says of his work. “At the sametime I find in its very fragility, a metaphor for the fragility of ourexistence. Being able to freeze these moments in time, in such adelicate medium offers me an opportunity to create the tranquilitythat I find so comforting.”Largely self-taught, Zweifel feels fortunate to have worked withmany successful artists in their studios and has attended PilchuckGlass School to further develop his skills.“No one else does work like this and I am honored to be one ofthe few galleries in the country to carry the work,” states galleryowner, Ronda Schaer. Established in 1990, the gallery featuresAmerican art glass as well as fine art and sculpture. Located at6540 Washington Street, RASgalleries is open from 10 a.m. to 5p.m. daily, Tuesday by appointment. For information, phone (707)944-9211, visit www.rasgalleries.com or email rasart60@aol.com.

And that is exactly what they do. Theypackage up those bottled memories and make sure they get safely toyour home or office.

His goal is to gently guide sustainably farmedfruit though the winemaking process to produce a wine thatexpresses an unadulterated view into the heart of the vine.In 1977, Rick Moshin began making wine as a hobby.He had already become an avid brewer, acquiring numerousaccolades and awards for his various beer recipes. Employedas a math instructor by day, Rick began making wine athome during his off hours. A friend once inquired about themany wine barrels stored in Rick’s garage to which hereplied, “Well I can’t afford to buy the wines that I like todrink, so I guess I’ll just have to make them.”To enhance his accessibility to quality grape sources,Rick worked part time as a grape broker from 1979 to 1994,matching up winemakers with grape growers throughoutCalifornia. To this day, Rick still purchases grapes from someof the sources he discovered outside of Sonoma County.With a goal to attain perfect fruit, Pinot Noir in particular,Rick decided that he should be farming the grapes himself,and in 1989, with the help of his family, Rick purchased aten-acre lot of Pinot Noir in the heart of the Russian RiverValley and set to work farming his new vineyard onweekends to perfect his Pinot Noir grapes.And so began the story of Moshin Vineyards. For the firstfew years, some of the fruit from Moshin Vineyards was soldto local Pinot Noir producing pioneers along Westside Road.With the remaining grapes, Rick made about 300 cases of hisown Pinot Noir each year, which he sold in between teachingmath classes in San Jose. During summer breaks, he wouldgo to France to learn more about the Burgundy region andthe secrets behind the elegance and finesse of the Pinot Noirgrapes coming from there. The plans for his own winerybegan forming, and in order to make the type of timelesswine he dreamed of, he would have to build a winerycapable of creating Pinot Noir using a gentle touch byutilizing “gravity-flow.”The gravity-flow method was commonly used in Europefor moving wine through the winemaking process, but not atechnique readily found in America. So, the mathematicianbegan searching for a property close to his vineyard alongthe Russian River. The land needed to feature a slopesuitable for gravity-flow wine production as well as terroirthat would be optimal for an additional planting of PinotFollow us on twitter @WineCountrytW

In 2001, Rick found the ideal site for the winery, a location ona gentle slope located half a mile from the vineyards on WestsideRoad.From 2001 to 2004 – still commuting to and from San Jose StateUniversity – Rick worked weekends and summers on his property toprepare for the new winery all the while continuing to farm hisoriginal ten acre vineyard and make his wine at various custom crushfacilities.In 2005, the first grapes crossed the threshold of the new state-ofthe-artMoshin Vineyards Winery, with Rick retiring from teachingthe following year to run his new winery full time. With the futurein mind, the following sustainability practices were soonimplemented at the winery: solar power, in-house nitrogenproduction, high efficiency steam cleaning and lees collection.Moshin Vineyards specializes in small lot, hand crafted winesfocusing mainly on Pinot Noir.
