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 information on a wine label is most important?When shopping for wine, beyond looking for the name of a reliableproducer, it helps to gather other information from the label tobetter understand what you are buying. Some basic items to examine:the appellation (a geographic name); a vineyard designation; the term“Estate-Bottled” and the term “Reserve.” A wine’s vintage should notplay a large role in your decision unless you know of a specific yearthat you want.The appellation designation, also known as the American ViticulturalArea designation, or AVA, will identify where the grapes weregrown. The broadest and most general designation is a state name, like“California” or “Oregon.” A broad geographic area designation usuallyindicates a wine without the unique characteristics that a more narrowgeographic designation, such as Edna Valley, Napa Valley or SantaYnez Valley, would possess. The reason is because broad AVA designationsallows the winemaker to blend grapes from anywhere in theentire region. When I compare labels of similar-type wines that I havenever tasted and am unfamiliar with, I almost always select the onewith the smaller AVA in order to get an impression of the more specificgeography.A wine label that includes the name of a vineyard, in addition tothe AVA, is getting even more specific with geography. A single vineyardmay have its own unique soil or climate and produce a wine thatis different enough to demand a separate and distinct identification onthe label.Of less importance, the term “Estate-Bottled” means the grapes were grown oneither the producer’s estate property or invineyards that are within his appellation and with whom he has longtermcontracts. In other words, production remained under thecontrol of one company from start to finish.Finally, the term “Reserve” will sometimes be used to identify awine that the producer believes to be among its best. “Reserve” couldmean that the grapes were hand harvested, or selected from hillsidevines only, or the wine was given more time in barrel for aging. Forthese reasons, “Reserve” wines will usually be priced higher than theproducer’s non-Reserve wines.And don’t forget to check the alcohol content. The trend is to makefull-bodied, bolder wine these days and a higher alcohol level usuallygoes along with that. Twenty years ago, the average alcohol content inwine was around 12%. Today, it is probably more like 13% to 14%.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 frequentcontact with California winemakers.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWSMore Than 250 Quality WinesUnder $25 at Wine GarageHidden next to a dilapidated ’40s-era former filling station on Highway 29in Calistoga lies the Wine Garage. A unique wine shop in Napa Valley that retailsall wine in the store under $25. Sound crazy? Its true. And the proprietors Toddand Joy Miller, have hit on a niche in the Valley that had been very missed by thelocals there.“There are a lot of winemakers here that can’t afford to drink the wine theymake” says Miller. “That’s crazy, yes, but who can afford to drink a $65 bottle withdinner every night?”Many people miss The Wine Garage on the first try upvalley, but the searchis well worth it. Miller stocks wine from all of California’s wine growing regionsincluding fifty Napa selections and 40 from Sonoma County. When he first soughtout buying the initial inventory, “I enlisted a local farmer buddy and his 15-footbox van and off we went all over California hunting down the deals. I tried to seekout the small producers who didn’t have distributors so I could pass the savingson to my customers.” And Miller did just that. His store is stocked with highqualityjuice all under $25 and all are unique. Most labels in the shop are unrecognizable– but all pass the same test; everything passes over Miller’s lips beforehe makes a buy. “If I don’t love it, I don’t buy it, period. Sometimes I will tasteover a hundred wines in one day, load up the truck and haul it up to Calistoga,unload at the store, and maybe I will crawl in bed by 3 a.m. Needless to say mybuddy bowed out of the deal after their second trip. I initially recruited him on a‘hey lets go wine tasting in Santa Barbara’ until he realized how much work itentailed. Poor guy, he had to be at the farm at 5 in the morning.”It is all worth it. Millers’ customers love him. He has a unique ability to hear averbal description of a customer’s favorite wine and translate that into a recommendationfor sometimes a third of the cost. “I have people all over the countrythat use me as their local wine shop. I ship right to their door – and the cost of theshipping is a drop in the bucket compared to what they save on the cost of thewine.Miller gets deals on Napa wine too. “I have winemakers from small wineriesstop in every week saying ‘I have something that will fit into the store,’ if they onlyhave 15 or 25 cases of an end-of-vintage wine – I am the perfect outlet for them.”So head up to the Wine Garage and check out the best deals in the Valley at1020 Foothill Blvd (Hwy 29), Calistoga, CA 94515.

WINERY FEATURE | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKRAYMOND VINEYARDEvolution Under New Ownershipby Richard Paul HinkleThe five generation story of theRaymonds took a new twist lastAugust when the winery waspurchased by another family with awell-layered vinous history. TheRaymond reputation – built throughdedication and discipline – is now inthe equally-proven vinous hands ofthe French family Boisset.“We are pleased that theRaymonds have given their blessingto our purchase of the winery theycreated back in 1974,” says new proprietorJean-Charles Boisset. “The Raymonds havebeen an integral part of crafting the phenomenalreputation of the Napa Valley. As weembark on this exciting evolution for thewinery we will seek to always honor theirlegacy and ensure they will remain proud ofthe winery that bears their name.”The likelihood of that happening has to becounted good in that Boisset has shown thathe means what he says with his managementof Sonoma County’s DeLoach Winery, whichthe Boisset family acquired several years ago.At Raymond Boisset brought the highlyregarded winemaking consultant PhilippeMelka on board with the 2009 harvest to lendhis vast experience in making CabernetSauvignon-based wines. Just months agoStephanie Putnam – previously with FarNiente and Hess Collection, also good placesfor Cabernet Sauvignon – joined the team asdirector of winemaking. She is assisted in thecellar by Kathy George, the Oregon State gradwho has been with Raymond for twodecades. On the vineyard side, EricPooler is now charged with movingthe Raymond Vineyards – at the estatein Rutherford, in St. Helena and inJamison Canyon – up to sustainableand organic standards.Take a good look at the followingwines, and you’ll see that what’s onthe horizon is well in line with whathas proceeded.Sauvignon Blanc 2009 NapaValley Reserve ($16): Fresh grassand lime in the nose, with a razor likebriskness in the mouth. The finish isstone-hard and crisp, just what you want forthe oyster course.Chardonnay 2008 Napa Valley Reserve($20): Light peach up front, with Frenchbread-and-vanillin oak notes; creamy in themiddle, with lemon pie hints – both the fruitand the buttery crust. Chicken in a creamsauce.Merlot 2006 Napa Valley Reserve ($24):Cassis and menthol and green olive; wonderfullyfluid texture, and just enough oak toastinessto frame all that fruit. Flank steak.20 www.WineCountryThisWeek.com


WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINERY FEATUREMerlot 2005 Napa Valley,Rutherford ($35): Narrow cassisand green olive, with firm,tightly-drawn blackberry in themiddle palate and finish. Grahamoak is subtle and alluring.Field Blend Red 2007 California($15): This is a fun wine,made with several varieties,including the most obvious raspberry(Zinfandel) and blackberry(Cabernet Sauvignon). Lively andbrisk, put this in your picnicbasket with the potato salad andham sandwich.Cabernet Sauvignon 2007Napa-Sonoma-Lake, FamilyClassic ($20): Easy blackcurrant fruit and black pepperspice. Think Salisbury steak orthe like.Cabernet Sauvignon 2005St. Helena ($60): This is a solidlybuilt wine that shows off the St.Helena appellation. The blackcurrant and cassis are there in fullforce, with a delightful hit ofblackberry from the middlethrough the finish. “This was acool vintage,” says George. “Thelonger ripening period allowedfor even fruit development andcontributed to high qualitywines. We like this wine withroasted duck breast or braisedrabbit.” The ducks are easier tocatch than the rabbits, though.Raymond Vineyard is locatedat 849 Zinfandel Lane (on thesouth side of town, visible fromHighway 29), St. Helena.

Perfect Pairs BYMILLIE HOWIEDUNGENESS CRAB CAKESWith Tomatillo Avocado Sauce and Roasted Corn SalsaCasa Nuestra RosadoPerfectly Paired withDungeness Crab CakesIf the folks at Casa Nuestra Winery had not attended a CheninBlanc Conference in the Loire Valley of France a few years ago, therewould never have been a Casa Nuestra Dry Rosado. Fortunately, asStephanie explains, “We started making Rosado after being introducedto the wonderful, food-friendly rosés of the Loire region.They were dry and crisp and perfect for pairing with a wide varietyof foods.”The 2009 Rosado, This dry rosé is made from the estate’s organicCabernet Franc grapes “This vintage,” Stephanie says, “has just theright amount of fruit and spice coupled with a racy acidity to make itthe ideal complement to any of the crab dishes created by the chef ofSilverado Brewing Company. My favorites, particularly when servedwith the Tomatillo Avocado Sauce and Roasted Corn Salsa – and, ofcourse, our Rosado, are the Dungeness Crab Cakes.”And the chef feels pretty much the same way. “I paired the CasaNuestra Rosado with the Dungeness Crab Cakes because I love thecombination of the sweetness of the crab and the crispness of thecakes,” he says. ”And the Avocado and Tomatillo Sauce has theperfect amount of acidity to match the subtle fruit flavors of thewine. The combination fits in ideally with our policy at the restaurantto use only local, sustainable and organic ingredients whereverpossible, and we feel fortunate to be able to feature the Rosado whichStephanie made in a very limited quantity of only 185 cases.” To besure to be able to duplicate this mouth-watering combination, stopby Casa Nuestra at 3451 Silverado Trail, St. Helena to taste andpurchase a bottle or two of the Rosado.22CRAB CAKES• 1 pound Dungeness crab meat• 1/2 cup mayonnaise• 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs• 1/2 tsp Tobasco sauce• 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce• 1/2 tsp salt• 1 tsp dry mustard• 1 tsp fresh Italian parsley, chopped• 2 oz celery minced• 2 oz scallions minced• 4 oz red bell peppers, mincedCombine all ingredients except the mayonnaise, and the bread crumbs –mix well.Add mayonnaise and bread crumbs – mix well.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWSWinemaker Profile: Rutherford Hill WineryMARISA TAYLOR HUFFAKERby Diana GreenwoodRutherford Hill Winery is affectionatelycalled the “king” of Merlot but there’s a“queen” behind the scenes working withthose lush, purple-black grapes. WinemakerMarisa Taylor Huffaker tips her crown toMerlot, the fruit grown in the regionsurrounding the winery, grapes bursting withflavor from vines nurtured by deep volcanicsoil and afternoon sun that lingers on the hill.Marisa knows the varietal well. About 75% ofproduction at Rutherford Hill is aimed atMerlot, a wine that is dense and voluptuouson the nose, and the aromas in the cellarremind Marisa of childhood dinners whereMerlot sparkled in crystal glasses when familymembers gathered.Marisa Taylor Huffaker grew up runningthrough the vineyards of Santa Rosa inSonoma County. Her godfather was a vineyardmanager and Marisa visited often,trailing along, pruning, picking, tasting thegrapes, and marveling at the process fromvine to the glass. “Wine was a part of the dailytable landscape at dinner,” said Marisa.“Growing up in wine country, it was thenorm. It was only later when I was searchingfor a career that I realized how familiar andmemory-invoking the aroma of a winery wasto me. It was like coming home.”Marisa enrolled in Santa Rosa JuniorCollege and by the age of 25 was making herown wine, using Pinot Noir from Carneros.She graduated from the University of California,Davis, first with a B.S. in Chemistryand then an M.S. in Food Science/Enology.With her two degrees, Marisa had the solidfoundation needed to excel at top quality,artisan winemaking. A self-described “labrat,” Marisa has a passion for the analyticaldetail needed for monitoring yeast cultures,barrels, fermentation, blending and ultimately,bottling.After honing her skills in the lab at PiperSonoma and J Winery, Marisa became anenologist at S. Anderson Vineyard inwww.WineCountryThisWeek.comYountville, where she learned to makeCabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and sparklingwine. Her natural curiosity led Marisa towork abroad for the harvest of 1999 at theColognole Winery in Rufina, Italy, where sheimmersed herself in winemaking and learnedto vinify Sangiovese. In Italy, Marisa spokesome Italian in order to share her passion forwine and learned the importance of communicationfrom vineyard to cellar to bottle,something she stresses today at RutherfordHill.Although Rutherford Hill Winery isprimarily a red wine house, Marisa burstswith enthusiasm when talking aboutChardonnay, especially as sultry summer daysapproach and people fire up the grills. “OurChardonnay is a wine to love,” she said. “It’scrisp and fruit forward with just the rightamount of spice and richness from the barrelfermentation. The barrel influence supportsthe bright fruit of the Chardonnay.”Another warm weather wine to love is the2009 Sauvignon Blanc, which will be availableJune 1st. In the past this wine wasoffered only at the winery, but this year asmall bottling of 800 cases will be released fordistribution.

Welcome toS U I S U NV A L L E YSuisun Valley – Hidden But Treasured Wine Countryby Charles NeaveFirst, foremost and always, the Suisun Valley in Solano County just25 minutes from Napa, has its roots – often quite literally – in the businessand passion of agriculture. And nowhere is that more evidentthan in the rich earth and thriving vineyards and farms of the SuisunValley, the stretch of land that runs to the west of Fairfield and Interstate80, and borders the county of Napa on two sides.Perfectly situated between a pair of coastal mountain ranges, theMount George Range on the west and the Vaca Mountains to the east,this verdant six by two mile valley sits within the Coastal climateregion. It is also an area where fog rarely visits, though it is not far fromboth the Sacramento River delta and San Francisco’s San Pablo Bay.Set within this compact area are more than 10,000 acres of richfarmland, almost a third of them planted to the grapes that helpsupply the area’s flourishing wineries, and many with a more familiarNapa Valley label. This region is part of the North Coast Appellation,a district famous for what is known as “ultra-premium” fruit, which inthe case of wine lovers everywhere means wine grapes, planted to astaggering number of both familiar and rare varieties.If you look at a map of where many growers in Napa County andbeyond source their grapes or own vineyards, you will be surprised athow many have vineyard holdings here. This is in addition to thedozen or so wineries that call the Suisun Valley their home, and bothmake, age, bottle and market their wines here. Many also have theirown tasting rooms, and during the year hold – both individually andcollectively – special events to lure those who appreciate wine to theircellar doors.The Suisun Valley is also dotted with farm stands and workingfarms that welcome visitors. There are quaint spots to eat and relax,and it is the driving force behind the annual Tomato Festival in Fairfield,and for other events that occur throughout the year. But most ofall it stands as enduing symbol of the real, living heritage of this partof the hidden but treasured wine country of Northern California.30www.WineCountryThisWeek.com


The Napa Back RoadVezér Family Vineyards in Suisun Valleyby Charles NeaveThough often – too often – overlooked, Suisun Valley is one of thelast of California’s remaining hidden gems, despite the fact that it isbarely a dozen miles from the City of Napa. But for years Suisun hasbeen known as a trusted and quality stand-in to the star winemakersof Napa and Sonoma.Now, with the recent introduction of Frank and Liz Vezér and theirbest friends and partners, Sam and Mimi Mizirawi, things arechanging.To begin with, the Vezer’s bought the 30-acre ranch and vineyardformerly contracted to the “Sin Zin” people and “Ravenswood.” Thatwas followed in very short order by their purchase of the entireWestern “Pony Express” village of Mankas Corners, a property with160 years of colorful history. Then they acquired Suisun Valley’sCrown Jewel, the Blue Victorian in the very heart of this valley ofrolling hills, farms, pasture and vineyards.Also a 160-year-old homestead, it has towering century-old datepalms and a gorgeous and, yes, a very blue Victorian manor. All threelocations are working winery sites, with some of the most unique andhospitable tasting rooms you have ever experienced, stocked with anarray of good wines and staffed by people who are simply glad youstopped by and who want to share the area’s history, stories and wineswith you.However, what is the best part about the Vezér Family wineries andthis tranquil valley are their wines. There are the crisp, tropical fruitwhites that even red wine drinker would love, and then there are theVezér reds. Reds that are lush, jammy and with a silky smooth finish.And all their wines pair perfectly with food; in my mind the ultimatetest of any wine.All of the wines from Vezér and Blue Victorian have won awards,and most of these awards are Best in Class, double gold and gold. “Weare thrilled that we have just won gold at the New York’s Internationalfor their 2006 Cab,” said Frank Vezér. Also, at a blind tasting recentlyheld at the elegant Bay Leaf Restaurant in Napa, Vezér’s 2006 CabernetSauvignon was unanimously preferred over a famous 97 point NapaValley Cabernet.One cannot write an article on Vezér and Suisun Valley withoutmentioning the La Salette, if it is not already known as the world’smost exquisite Petite Syrah blend, it is certainly known as the world’smost expensive, where a magnum of La Salette sold to two investorsfor $30,000.00 in a live charity auction. Have no fear though, in thetasting room a bottle is far more affordable price, though it is indisputablya wine for those special occasions.But Vezér is all about hospitality and family, and this is the mainreason why Suisun Valley is being recognized as the “wine hospitalityvalley.” The Vezér family warmly invites you to visit all of thewww.WineCountryThisWeek.comtwelve wineries in the valley, and to make it a full weekend destination.You can even plan a dinner at the Vintage Café, right nextto one of the Vezér tasting rooms, and spend the night in one of theareas many fine hotels.For more information on this special part of the Northern CaliforniaWine Country, go to SuisunValleyTheNapaBackroad.com formore details.

Welcome toC A L I S T O G AKnowledge, Service and Value at Calistoga Wine Stopby Charles NeaveThe Calistoga Wine Stop was purchased by Tom and Tammy Pelterin 1986. “For many years now we have helped our customers withtheir wine needs. It is hard to believe we’ve been in business in theHistoric Railroad Depot for all that time. We’ve raised our family herein Calistoga and made it our home.

We offer knowledge,service and value for the first time wine buyer, as well as for theseasoned wine collector.”By concentrating mostly on Napa and Sonoma County wines fromproducers a little off the beaten path, with smaller production and notwidely distributed they feel they source bottling with the best price toquality ratio.In 2006 they added a tasting room to the shop, featuring thoselesser known wineries and winemakers. Tastings always include atleast four wines, “And be sure to try our own ‘Pelter’ Cabernet Sauvignonwhich is always a featured wine in our tasting room.”Their years in the wine industry let them recommend wines for anyoccasion, for food pairings, both long and near term cellaring, or justa nice red or white for everyday drinking.They are able to ship world wide and in most circumstances theycan pack your wine for you to take with you to the airport. Newairport laws require it to be checked as luggage, so carry on is nolonger an option.“Our combination of fair pricing, personalized service and considerablewine knowledge has helped us serve thousands of customers,”they say with both pride and satisfaction.

NAPA VALLEY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKWILLIAM HILL ESTATE WINERYby Diana GreenwoodWilliam Hill Estate Winery claims a sweet slice of scenery in theSilverado Bench region known for its rocky, volcanic soil and dreamyweather. Barely a stone’s throw past Silverado Country Club at 1761Atlas Peak Road where Napa turns quiet countryside, the wineryperches on a knoll overlooking 140 acres of vineyards on rolling hillswith views to forever. The air is heady with the scent of lavender androses and the grounds are open-armed friendly for exploring. Thecharming picnic arbor and patio are ideal for outdoor wine tasting.Bring a lunch, buy a bottle of wine, and relax in Adirondack chairs inthe afternoon sun. William Hill is a bird lover’s paradise with yellowfinches and scrub jays, hummingbirds, wrensand red-winged blackbirds swooping, diving,splashing in the courtyard fountain andsinging amongst the vines. If you’re looking forexceptional wine in a setting that’s undisturbedby traffic or clutter or confusion, take it fromthe birds, William Hill is a sanctuary.Open seven days from 10-5, tasting andtours are by appointment but appointmentsare simple to get; just sing from your cell at thebottom of the winding driveway. Expect a warm welcome when youarrive. The tasting room is squeaky-clean in minimalist design withsleek, contemporary lines in seating and counter and decorativedetails. No fuss. Instead, you’ll enjoy every sensory moment of theChardonnay Experience, a wine for which William Hill is celebrated.Smooth as a sonnet, the 2007 Napa Valley Chardonnay has elegantaromas of honeysuckle and ripe fruit flavors of white peach and pearwith a tickle of vanilla on the creamy finish. One of the most admiredwines year after year; it’s pretty in the glass and gorgeous on the palate.The Chardonnay Experience highlights style and aging practices ina flight of three wines. In addition to the 2007 Napa ValleyChardonnay, you’ll also try the 2007 Bench Blend Chardonnay, acomplex wine with intense flavors and notes of toasty oak, butter,citrus, vanilla and coconut that extend through a lingering finish. Only1,200 cases of this vintage were produced so this is a wine to buy nowand pour for guests as you enjoy long summer evenings.The third wine in the flight is the 2006 Dijon Clones Chardonnay.A beauty in all features, from Clones 76 and 77, this wine is amidnight canoe ride on a moonlit lake. Rich with silky layers of tropicalfruits and honeydew melon on the palate, melt-in-the-mouthbutterscotch slips in for the finish. This wine is very limited productionwith only 181 cases produced. William Hill Winemaker, RalfHoldenried, remains focused on the importance of the vineyard in allthe wines he makes and the Dijon Clones Chardonnay shines.Ralf suggests that you spread your wings and consider two additionaltasting flights. Exploring Cabernet is a flight of three exceptionalCabs from the Estate and surrounding area and the Estate Exclusive,from vines seen while resting in your Adirondack chair, includes the2005 Estate Cabernet Franc, the 2005 Estate Malbec and the 2006Estate Petit Verdot. William Hill devotes 116 acres to Cabernet, 13 toMerlot, nine to Petit Verdot, two and a half toCabernet Franc and two to Malbec. AllChardonnay is from the Carneros region wherewarm southern sun trades time with cool seabreezes and the grapes express characteristicsunique to the terroir.Although William Hill is one of the mostpeaceful settings in the Napa Valley, there’s a lot ofbehind-the-scenes energy in this sanctuary. Senior Tasting RoomRepresentative, Claire Gabaldon, described a selection of events thatwill get you walking, perk up your palate and stimulate your senses.“We’ve planned a Vineyard Hike for Saturday morning, June 12, from10-12,” she said. “You’ll walk the rows of Estate vines with our VineyardManager, Jake Terrell and he’ll share in detail what’s happening inthe vineyards this season while you participate in a canopy managementactivity. Following your hike, you’ll enjoy a release day tasting ofWilliam Hill Estate 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and the2007 Estate Petit Verdot as well as the ever-popular 2007 Napa ValleyChardonnay.” Birds will sing background sonatas, sun will shine andhors d’oeuvres will be served. This event is $25, $15 for wine clubmembers. (A little bird may mention that now is a good time to jointhe wine club.)There’s a Lobster Feed and Movie Night coming up in Augustthat you won’t want to miss and a new tour experience to plan for thissummer. The new tour includes wine tasting of four wines from aselection of the Napa Valley, Bench Blend and Estate tier and yourguide will expand upon the history of William Hill Estate Wineryincluding a deep dive into Chardonnay in the media room with a livearoma seminar. There will be food pairings, grape sugar testing in thevineyards, as well as discussion on winemaking techniques and barrelaging.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKTasting Room of the Week:DE LORIMIER WINERYby Charles NeaveThe architecture of this 44-acre propertyfits into the landscape seamlessly, surroundedby vines as it is, the property line at the backbeing the Russian River.Go down the long drive and you will gopast the original farm house, now lovinglyrestored, and you will come to the wineryproper. To the left, the smaller of the two buildingshouses the tasting room, a fully licensedcommercial kitchen, and a private tastingroom. To the right, the building you firstthought might have been a barn, is thecavernous barrel room which, at times, hostsprivate parties. In between is a spectacularcourtyard with a perfectly proportioned fountain,lots of comfortable seating and plantingsthat compliment both of the buildings withtheir mellow wood construction and this beautifuloutdoor space. No wonder the property isin demand for parties, receptions, retreats and,of course, this being wine country, weddings.The winery’s estate vineyard has beensculpted for weddings of all sizes. Besides thespacious gallery tasting room, the private“Club deLo” space provides an intimate venuefor smaller tastings and dinners, while theextensive vineyard grounds and “CabanaCourtyard” have been designed to handledream weddings. There is even a twobedroomguest house on the grounds, andevery bit of it is surrounded by vineyards.Special events aside, it has become ratherwidely known that deLorimier is quicklybecoming the hot new “Cabernet House” inthe Alexander Valley. Already known forquality, adding a variety of vineyard-designateCabernet Sauvignons seemed like the perfectnext step for owners and respected SonomaCounty winemakers and grape growers, Kenand Diane Wilson. The fact that they keepwinning gold medals on these new Cabernetsjust adds another gratifying dimension.Stop by, visit and sample. The tastingroom, with its high wood ceilings, old vinesabove the bar (you’ll see), fireplace, threesidedcopper-topped tasting bar – which isbacked by a large window framing the vineyardson the other side of the glass – is theperfect place to learn about the wines ofdeLorimier.It is here that you might try their famousCabernets, and perhaps the StuhlmullerChardonnay or the Estate Merlot. Or, it couldbe their medal-winning Estate Mosaic RedMeritage or the Stone Ranch or Francis VineyardZinfandels. And if they are not sold out(as they often are), the Sauvignon Blanc or theCabernet Franc. Variety is not an issue here,which may be an understatement.Outside you can picnic on a lawn wherecroquet has been played every now and again;perhaps walk down to the river’s edge. Thekey to it all is to relax and enjoy, which is whatthis beautiful spot is all about. Just one morereason why, when you visit this part of theworld, it is one you will not want to miss.deLorimier Winery is open daily from10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located at 2001Highway 128, Healdsburg.

MONTEREY/CENTRAL COAST | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKJune Brings Vintner’s Festival to the Santa Cruz Mountainsby Laura NessJune is a month of change and transition, traditionally one filledwith ceremonies marking life accomplishments, i.e., graduations, andthe beginning of new lives together, i.e., weddings. Then there’sFather’s Day and lots of anniversaries, as all those happily wed couplescelebrate another year of bliss together, at least we fondly hope. Winemakes a great gift for all these occasions. If there’s a special grad or Dadin your life, Burrell School suggests this is an ideal time to give a bottleof Valedictorian, Dean’s List Cabernet or Honor Roll Merlot. Of course,if you want to have some fun with Dad, how about a bottle of DetentionZin? If you’re gifting a lit major, how about Poetic Cellars“Ballad?” If Dad needs a little Zen in his life, a bottle of Poetic Cellars“Mantra” might be just what he needs. The smooth 2007 Loma PrietaCabernet is sure to please the sophisticated palate, and the pepperyzesty2006 Hunter Hill Estate Merlot will get you major browniepoints.The annual Santa Cruz Mountains Vintner’s Festival, the first twoweekends of June, is the ideal time to go shopping for wine gifts forthose special people in your life: including yourself. All the Summit toSea Wine Trail wineries will be celebrating Vintner’s Festival, some atrestaurants as well as at their estate tasting rooms.
