INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER


BY LEN NAPOLITANO

Whats happening at a winery during harvest?


Harvest season is defined by the months when ripe grapes start
getting picked from vines, transported to the winery and processed
into wine. It is commonly known as crush. Its a stressful time for
everyone involved, as tons of grapes arrive at the winery every
hour, and the talent and patience of winemakers, assistant
winemakers, lab workers and seasonal interns are tested.
Prior to accepting the first batch of grapes, the winemaking
team makes sure all of the processing equipment is thoroughly
clean and in working order, all pumps and hoses rinsed and
sanitized, barrels washed and dried, and yeast and chemicals at
hand. The work they do and decisions they make during this busy
period play an important role in how their wines will perform
when released to the public some within a year, as with most
white wines, or up to four years later for some full-bodied red
wines.
The day begins at dawn to pick grapes before temperatures get
too hot and while fruit is still cool from overnight temperatures.
Everyone involved is aware that an unexpected event could turn a

years worth of effort into disappointing results. For example, an


independent grower who decided when to pick the grapes might
send the winery fruit outside the winemakers acceptable range of
ripeness. Its possible the grapes could be rejected altogether and the
winery will have to figure out how to make up for that loss of
tonnage. If overly ripe grapes are accepted, creating a quality wine
from them might require adjustments in the winemaking process
possibly the addition of acids or application of a different type of
yeast than anticipated. Winemakers have to be ready for all
situations.
In the coolest wine-growing regions, where grapes do not always
achieve full ripeness, juice almost always needs adjusting before
fermentation unless a low-alcohol wine is desired. If state wine law
allows it, sugar is added a step called chaptalization in order to
achieve acceptable alcohol content.
If you happen to be at a winery during harvest, you will see
grapes trucked in from the vineyard, typically in white plastic bins,
about four-feet square. Bins have the capacity to carry either onehalf or one ton of grapes. Full bins of red grapes are dumped by
forklift into a machine called a destemmer-crusher, which first
separates grapes from stems and then gently crushes them to release
the juices.

Picking Decisions: Whites


When we think of the components of a finished white wine,
what comes to mind? For me, I think of bouquet, level of fruitiness,
acidity, mouthfeel, presence or absence of oak, and level of residual
sweetness. With this list of components at hand, every wine can be
reverse-engineered in terms of series of decisions made with those
end goals in mind. This is why the truism, Everything we do or do
not do has an effect on the final wine is, indeed, a truism, not a
clich. We say it to ourselves as a reminder at every stage of the
process so as not to get lazy or take for granted each and every step
of winemaking.
When we start to make picking decisions, there seem to be lots
of variables, like variety, Brix (sugar) levels, maturity for depth of
flavor and color, upcoming weather, etc., but I start with the
processing in mind: is this going into steel or oak or something else
like concrete or food-grade plastic? Why start there amongst all the
other angles into picking? Because of what is trying to be
emphasized based on the fermentation vessel. If we are using steel
or another non-wood tank, then we are seeking to preserve aroma,
keep higher acids, and develop a more citrusy, grassy, or minerally
final wine. Think of an all-steel Chardonnay, a Sauvignon Blanc or a
Pinot Gris and youll get the idea of why we pick earlier and are less
concerned about what is developing on the skins: skin contact is
going to be as minimal as possible, generally, and the wines are
going to be kept away from oxygen and produced through low
temperatures to preserve freshness.
If, however, we are seeking to give extended skin contact ala
orange wines or extended lees and oak contact to impart body
and fullness (think oaky, buttery Chardonnay, for example), then
we are going to pick at different ripenesses, at different Brix, and
after longer hanging as the results we are looking for in the grapes

come about only through those decisions. Then, because we want


that contact continued through fermentation and beyond, oak is
usually used in some form to add depth and body as well as help to
start or nurture secondary, malolactic fermentation because those
bacteria are resident in oak, and thus produce a transformation of
citrus notes into apple, pear, peach and other tropical fruits in the
finished wine.
If an oak influence on aroma and a hint on the tongue are
desired without any creaminess, juice separated from the lees via
racking from vessel to vessel, ala a gravy strainer, will be paired
with oak adjuncts of any number of kinds, which allow for quite
exact recipes based on volumes and hours or days of exposure.
Conversely, if a strong mouthfeel of time in contact with lees and
oak are desired, the juice and lees together go into oak barrels, and
length of time, stirring the lees, and toasting level of the oak all
have an impact on the final wine.
Residual sugar is actually something which is easy to control if
the winemaking is detail-oriented. Fermentation is never the same
twice, but each and every one can and must be tracked for
temperature, yeast health, amounts and kinds of nutrients, Brix and
alcohol, and other leading indicators of how well and how fast the
conversion of sugars to alcohols and malic to lactic acid, if
applicable, is happening. Arresting the fermentation, pulling the
emergency break, if you will, is generally done through shutting
down the temperature and adding enough sulfites to knock out the
yeast. Its more of a coast than a dead stop, but attention to the
numbers and experience usually produce desired results.
Fine winemaking is very much akin to fine cooking and baking,
so its no wonder the two go hand in hand in wine country. We
strive through our winegrowing, like the chef who grows and raises
her own flora and flauna, to produce fantastic ingredients for
which we have recipes developed through education, time in
others cellars, and experience. The next time you sip a white, think
about what decisions were or were not made, and consider, too,
what you would have done the same or differently had the recipe
been yours to tweak. Enjoy!

Josh Stein has been in the Napa wine business for more than a decade, and, in
addition to being owner/winemaker of the Stein Family Wine Group, which
produces a nationally and internationally distributed portfolio of wine brands and
donates a percentage of its sales to the children of wineworkers in the form of
college scholarships and support funds, he regularly consults for wineries and
organizations throughout the North Bay and Coast via their subsidiaries, Discrete
Wine Support Services and SF-Integrated Vineyard Management Services.

B CELLARS
A New Wine Country Experience on the Oakville Cross Road
BY RONDA GIANGRECO

Now the restaurants have begun to catch up with the winemaking; there are
numerous great restaurants in Napa Valley, and its wonderful because the people are
THOMAS KELLER
there for just that: great food and great wine.

B CELLARS
Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. by appointment only
703 Oakville Cross Road, Oakville CA 94562
(707) 709-8787 | www.bcellars.com

No one understands that premise more than Duffy Keys and Jim Borsack. When the duo
landed their extraordinary slice of Napa heaven in the Oakville AVA next door to some of
the worlds most celebrated wineries, including Silver Oak, PlumpJack, Groth, Gargiulo and
Rudd they were committed to producing hand-crafted, beautifully balanced, food-friendly
wines, and pairing them with exquisite culinary creations. Then, for good measure, they
decided to throw in a little fun, as well. As Duffy explains, We wanted to fashion a wine
country experience that is highly personal. Our wine guides will be with our guests
throughout their visit. The wine guide will take you through our culinary gardens, caves and
create for you a very individual Napa event, tailored to your specific taste and needs. We
want you to walk out the door and say wow, that was lovely!
B Cellars, the first new winery on the Oakville Cross Road in eighteen years, has all the
makings of a dream-like wine country experience including a state-of-the art winery and
architecturally stunning tasting room that features panoramic views of their verdant
vineyards, a professional, interactive demonstration kitchen, private event spaces opening
onto grand courtyards, outdoor tasting terraces, a 15,000-square-foot cave.
Visitors to winery can choose a variety of tasting experiences, each involves the gardens
and an unforgettable wine tasting, complete with culinary pairings prepared by their
Chef de Cuisine, Brian Green, who trained under both Daniel Boulud and Dominique Ansel
in New York.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINERY FEATURE


Guests can also savor B Cellars
single-vineyard heritage wines in
the Beckstoffer Heritage Room,
located within the caves. These
wines, made from grapes grown in
pioneering grower Andy
Beckstoffers storied vineyards,
widely recognized as producing
some of the best wines for which
the region is known, offer wine
lovers the opportunity to
experience a truly historic
perspective of Napa Valleys
heritage. B Cellars is the only
winery in the Napa Valley where
guests will be able to experience
wines from each of these six
storied vineyards. Says Duffy Keys,
Our belief is that a winemaker,
much like a good chef, needs to
start with fantastic ingredients.
B Cellars wines are expertly
guided to maturation by the
talented winemaker, Kirk Venge,
the second generation of one of
the Napa Valleys winemaking
dynasties. While he is following in
the footsteps of his father, the
renowned winemaker Nils Venge,
Kirk has a unique style of his own
and a keen understanding of the
Napa Valley and all it has to offer.
If all of this seems like a bit
overwhelming, B Cellars will
thoughtfully provide you with a
full-service, on-site concierge to
assist you with tasting
appointments and help you to
fully enjoy all that this fabulous
wine country destination has to
offer.
B Cellars is open daily from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. by appointment
only and features four proprietary
blends, as well as Sauvignon
Blanc, ros and eight smallproduction, vineyard-designate
wines, including Caldwells Syrah,
Dr. Crane Cabernet Sauvignon, To
Kalon Cabernet, Georges III
Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese
and Petite Sirah.

ACACIA VINEYARD
Rolling Carneros Hills and
Fantastic Wines for Thirty-Five Years
BY JOSH STEIN

With the finest of wines, its what the winemaker doesnt


do which matters much more than what he does. If youve
got great grapes, you dont need to over-work the result; at
Acacia Vineyard, which was founded in 1979 less than two
miles from San Pablo Bay, theyve got one hundred and fifty
acres worth of great grapes which have produced worldrenowned Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for more than three
decades. And, as members of the Carneros Wine Alliance,
Acacia has taken the lead in making sure Carneros stays a
place which will always produce great grapes. What else
would you expect from one of the few wineries getting it
right about Carneros from the start?
Indeed, Acacia was one of the first to recognize the
Carneros regions potential, and the winery was also a
forerunner in vineyard-designating their wines because of
the lot-by-lot methodology it has employed for its
fermentations. Rather than homogenizing the grapes or
juice, each vineyard block is made separately and goes into
its own barrels, allowing time and cellar conditions to do
their magic before any decisions are made about bottling
this helps to preserve the uniqueness of each vintage and the
specialness of the particular vineyard in the glass.
And thats the other part of Acacias success since how
best to deliver these kinds of results vintage after vintage is
what the Acacia system has been developing since before just
about anyone in Carneros. Long before any grapes have been
crushed, attention to lots of details has to have taken place:
meticulous pruning, careful canopy and cluster
management, planting beneficial cover crops within the
vineyards and constant monitoring of all facets of the
vineyard environment are required to produce the best
grapes. Once judged ready for picking, every lot is harvested
and sorted by hand only perfect grapes go into Acacia
Chard, Pinot or any other wine! The winemaking is equally
as detail-oriented, focusing on gentle handling and
extraction, by-hand punch downs for reds and barrel
fermentations for whites.
The tasting room is, naturally, the best place to try these
wines and see the winemaking in action, and the
enthusiastic staff are happy to pour their best. Acacias Pinot
Noirs exhibit seductive flower, tea and fruit aromas, and they
showcase layered fruit flavors complimented by spice notes.
Equally, Acacias Chardonnays show off opulent aromas of

fruit and citrus, and oak is used
only as accent to generous fruit
and spices. In addition to several
different vineyard-designated
bottling of these classics, the
tasting room also pours other
exclusive releases, which include
Ros of Pinot Noir, Sauvignon
Blanc and Late Harvest Sauvignon
Blanc, Syrah and Viognier. Dont
skip these they show off what
happens when winemaker
Matthew Glynn gets to play a bit.
Enjoying these releases is
simple enough. The winery offers
appointment-required tours at 11
a.m. every day except Sunday. A
personal guide takes folks
through the story of Acacias
history and property, and once the
tour is complete, visitors have the
opportunity to taste delicious
white and red Acacia wines only
available at the winery; the tour
also includes a barrel sample of
up and coming Acacia wines.
There are two different tasting
options, too. The Cuve Tasting
offers a mix of whites ands reds,
including winery-only bottlings,
while the Premier Tasting features
a series of tasting room-only Pinot
Noirs. Each gives insight into how
the grapes have been transformed
the Acacia way.
As you can see, Acacia
Vineyard has made it into the
middle of its fourth decade for a
reason: the focus is put where it
matters making great wines
from great grapes. Do yourself a
favor and go in between the two
big wine areas of Napa and
Sonoma to appreciate what such
close proximity to the oceans
influence allows: scintillating
wines which show their place of
origin in glass after glass and
bottle after bottle. Youll be glad
you did enjoy!

Perfect Pairs

BY MELISSA VOGT

Lemon and Herb Scallop


Skewers & 2011 Unfiltered
Chardonnay Pairing
William Hill Estate Winery
Complementary and Contrasting Pairing Perfection with
Herb Scallop Skewers and William Hill Estate Unfiltered Chardonnay
William Hill Estate Winery is located in Napa and makes a
collection of wine from fruit grown in a variety of Napa County AVAs.
Their elegant, 2011 Unfiltered Chardonnay is made with a blend of
cool-climate grapes from Carneros and warm-climate grapes from the
northern end of Napa Valley. This combination of cool and warm
climate grapes gives this Chardonnay excellent structure and
complexity making it a lovely wine for sipping or an excellent choice
for pairing with a complementary dish.
If youre not sipping on this wine by itself, William Hill Estate
Winery recommends pairing this Unfiltered Chardonnay with lemon
and herb scallop skewers. This pairing is all about complementary and
contrasting flavors and textures. To start, one will notice that the
texture of this pairing is incredibly balanced. The juicy, olive oilsoaked scallops complement the creamy mouthfeel of the Chardonnay
and bring extra body to the wine which lends itself nicely to the
subtle oak nuances on the palate. Additionally, the tart flavors of the
lemon juice heighten the crisp acidity of the wine, giving contrast to
the silky, round textures; this creates a complexity in texture that fills
every angle of the mouth beautifully.
To keep in line with the complementary and contrasting textures,
the flavors mimic the same interaction. The earthiness of the fresh
thyme and olive oil are juxtaposed against the lemon juice and the
citrus notes in the wine, while the salt and pepper work to bring the
fruit forward gracing every inch of the palate. Correspondingly, the
earth and fruit are excellently balanced in this pairing.
William Hill Estate Winery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
and is located at 1761 Atlas Peak Road, Napa, CA 94558.

lemon wedges on each skewer.
4. Cook the kebabs, turning from time to time and basting

Judds Hill Harvest Party Not To Be Missed!


SUBMITTED BY DEVIN JOSHUA, JUDDS HILL

It is hard to believe, but another harvest


season is upon us in wine country. Theres
never a bad time to visit Californias grape
growing regions, but we think that the
absolute best time is during crush. The
vines are verdant with plump clusters of ripe
grapes. The weather is cooling from the
heights of the summer, but still warm and
pleasant. Theres an air of anticipation and
excitement as bins of beautiful fruit make
their way to be destemmed, crushed and
fermented. All of this provides the perfect
backdrop for a party! And, if you are
fortunate enough to be in Napa on Sunday,
September 7th, you must make your way to
Judds Hill Winery and MicroCrush for a
harvest party not to be missed!
For nearly a decade, Judds Hill Winery
and MicroCrush, located at the southern end
of Napas Silverado Trail, has hosted a
Harvest Party like no other. The party takes
place on the winerys covered crushpad, in
full view of the adjoining Kairos Cabernet
Sauvignon Vineyard. As you would expect,
the event features a wide variety of Judds Hill
Wines, both current releases and library
offerings. There will also be delicious food,
and illusionist Timothy James will be on
hand to dazzle and entertain guests with his
sleight of hand performance and strolling upclose magic throughout the event. With a
ticket price of just $45 per person, this
harvest party is a fantastic value. And, if you
are a Judds Hill Wine Club member,
admission is free. The Judds Hill Wine Club
is free to join and you can find more
information about it at juddshill.com.
If you happen to miss the party, you
should call the winery and make an
appointment to visit their tasting room, open
daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Their small-lot,
hand-crafted wines are affordably priced and
produced in a food-friendly style making
them a popular choice among Napa Valley
restaurants. With less than 3,000 cases
produced annually, you are not likely to find
these wines outside of Napa.
You can also make your own wine at

36

Illusionist Timothy James dazzles and entertains guests

Judds Hill in small (or larger) lots, hence the


MicroCrush moniker. It is one of the few
places where wine enthusiasts can make a
single barrel of their own wine from either
their own grapes or from grapes sourced by
Judds Hill. And if a barrel of custom wine,
which is about 288 bottles, is a bit much
Judds Hill offers another option for
personalized wine. Their Bottle Blending

Day Camp is held daily by advance


appointment. Here guests craft their own
cuvee using Bordeaux varietal barrel samples
and are led by a Judds Hill wine educator
who guides them towards their final blend,
which is then bottled, corked and labeled. It
is a fun and hands-on way to experience
wine country, perfect for couples and groups
of all sizes.
Theres always something fun happening
at Judds Hill. Make a point to check them
out this harvest season and see for yourself.
Judds Hill Winery and MicroCrush is
open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. by
appointment only and is located at 2332
Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558. For more

NAPA VALLEY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Norman deLeuze accepts the


Decanter Award on behalf of ZD

Three generations of the deLeuze family in ZDs cellar:


Jill, Brandon, Rosa Lee, Robert and Brett deLeuze

Current release ZD Wines 2011


Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

A ZD Wines Tradition Built On 45 Years


As the Napa Valleys 2014 vintage takes shape, ZD Wines and the
deLeuze family are celebrating 45 years of world-class wines known
for unrivaled quality, consistency and style.
Back in 1969, ZD was founded by aerospace engineers Norman
deLeuze and Gino Zepponi. Today, three generations of the deLeuze
family and the growing ZD staff welcome guests daily who have
traveled to the Rutherford winery from around the world for a taste
of ZDs award-winning wines.
ZD is rightfully known as one of Californias premier Chardonnay
producers, and is also widely recognized for premium Napa Valley
Cabernet Sauvignon and Carneros Pinot Noir. At ZD, the bar has
been set short of nothing but the best for four-and-a-half decades.
Today, this longstanding dedication has resulted in a level of
winemaking excellence in which its founders would take pride.
ZD Wines steadfast commitment to maintaining the highest
standard of quality is evidenced by awards received consistently over
the years. In fact, all three of ZDs focus varietals Chardonnay, Pinot
Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon were noted for excellence in a 1992
Wine & Spirits Magazine feature profiling ZD as a Winery of the Year.
On the international front, ZD Pinot Noir has twice captured the
prestigious Decanter Award at the International Wine Competition in
London. Its 1982 Pinot Noir received this honor in 1987, and two
years later, ZDs 1985 Pinot again received top recognition. With each
award, ZD Wines was honored in Londons House of Commons.
With every vintage, the Carneros Pinot Noir garners one gold
medal after the next in international competitions. From the Tasters
Guild Wine Judging to the San Diego Wine Competition, the 2012
ZD Pinot Noir is stacking up golds plus 93 points from the Los
Angeles Wine Competition and 90 points from California Grapevine.

ZD Cabernet Sauvignon has also been well received by the wine


press. Robert Parker gave ZD high praise for its 1987 Estate Cabernet
Sauvignon, noting it as Astonishing! In a May 2014 review of 10year-old Cabernet Sauvignons, both of ZDs 2004 Napa Valley
Cabernets were again well-received by Parker, who noted the
traditional Cabernet for its seductive texture and the reserve as rich
and full-bodied.
Its no secret that ZD Cabernets age beautifully. But the winerys
current release Cabernet Sauvignon is a showstopper in its own right.
In April, The New York Times rated ZDs 2011 Cabernet as one of the
top 10 Napa Valley Cabernets of the vintage, describing it as fresh
and structured, with ripe flavors of red fruits (Eric Asimov, Napa
Cabernets From a Cold, Wet Year). This wine continues to receive
numerous gold medals at national and international wine
competitions.
While ZD is most well known for world-class Cabernet
Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, it also offers additional
varietals through the Rosa Lees Whim limited releases. These small
production offerings, selected annually by Normans wife and first
generation ZD cofounder Rosa Lee deLeuze, have ranged from
Barbera to Pinot Grigio to Malbec. This years Rosa Lee selection is
2013 ZD Pinot Blanc, a breathtaking summer white.
The example of excellence set by ZDs founders 45 years ago
continues to have a positive and lasting impact on the deLeuze family
members who run the winery today. ZDs grape growing and
winemaking styles have remained consistent for nearly half a century,
as the winery continues to build upon and strengthen tradition.
ZD Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and other wines are available
for sale at the winery and on ZDs website at zdwines.com.

For over 100 years, health-conscious visitors have flocked to the


charming Napa Valley town of Calistoga to soak in the mineral-rich
hot springs that burble to the surface there. These days, along with
the hot springs, the lure of world-class wineries, restaurants and
lodgings is bringing more visitors than ever to Calistoga.
Have you ever had a mud bath? Well, grab your mate or your BFF
and book a double mud bath, where you can chat as you relax and
detoxify in comfortably warm organic volcanic mud. Single mud
baths are available, too. You really should experience this once in
your life its amazing!
Other therapeutic spa treatments include massage, foot reflexology,
herbal facials and nice, long soaks in the indoor Hot Springs Pool and
Jacuzzi (day use of the pool and Jacuzzi is complimentary, whenever
3718 ST HELENA HWY NO, CALISTOGA

you enjoy spa treatments
or an overnight stay). Pick any combination

of treatments or simply enjoy one. All treatments may be experienced
as a couple, or solo, in Golden Havens private treatment rooms. The

Rodney Strong Vineyards


Rodney Strong Vineyards was founded in 1959 by former ballet
dancer and wine pioneer, Rod Strong. Rod put Sonoma County on
the world map of wine as the first to produce and release a single
vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County, the first to
produce and release a Chalk Hill appellation Chardonnay and one
of the first to plant Pinot Noir in Russian River Valley.
In 1989 Tom Klein and his family purchased Rodney Strong
Vineyards. A few years earlier, with a keen eye for agriculture from
farming in California for three generations, the family recognized
Rods contributions and foresaw the winerys potential to lead
Sonoma County to its inherent world-class wine quality recognition.
Along with the familys purchase, came investments in land,
winemaking facility upgrades and a push for talent across the board.
Existing vineyards were either sold or upgraded within a few short
years and new vineyards were acquired along the way. The
renowned Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard, Alexanders Crown was
replanted. Rockaway vineyard, located in the middle of Alexander
Valley was purchased in 2003. Brothers vineyard, acquired by Klein
in 1999, located in northern Alexander Valley and named in honor
of Tom Kleins grandfather Sol and great uncles Jack and George
Klein, was nurtured for quality and refined for the 2005 creation of
the winerys Artisan Cellar, where boutique sized fermenters allow
the winegrowing and winemaking teams to keep vineyard lots
separate to evaluate and craft into world-class wines.
The familys dedication to Sonoma County and their pursuit of
quality won them Wine Enthusiasts American Winery of the Year in
2013. 2014 brings the celebration of a silver anniversary of family
ownership. Look to Rodney Strong in 2015 and beyond for
continued consistent great quality Sonoma County wines and more.

Rodney Strong Vineyards Summer Concert


Sunday, August 31 Tower of Power and Jonathan Butler
Since 1968, Tower of Power has been creating a unique kind of soul music, often hard to categorize, but the
bands leader and founding member, Emilio Castillo, has labeled their sound as Urban Soul Music. Fans have
responded with sold out concerts, driven by hits such as What Is Hip, Youre Still A Young Man, and more.
Rising from the streets of Oakland, Towers rhythm section lays down a groove like no other, the multi-layered
horns are powerful, and the way they approach everything, from writing and arranging to mixing and
performing, is totally their own. Jonathan Butler is a South African native whose expansive musical gift has
earned accolades in the R&B, contemporary jazz and gospel fields. Butler admits that he is living his dream. He
tells the story of his life and loves in the eleven original songs that came from the heart on his forthcoming
Artistry Music album, Living My Dream.
Doors: 4 p.m./Show: 5 p.m. | Tickets: VIP $95 / GA $65
Bring a picnic meal to enjoy with friends on The Green or purchase an assortment of prepared foods from local
purveyors who will be onsite. You may also purchase Rodney Strong Vineyards wines as well as choose from an
array of non-alcoholic beverages. No outside alcoholic beverages will be allowed into the venue. Low-back
chairs or blankets are recommended for all lawn seating. No high back chairs or umbrellas. The famous Russian
River fog usually arrives in the early evening, so attendees are advised to bring jackets and sweaters, or guests

A Flagship in the Russian River Valley
BY DENISE OLLIFFE

Martin Ray Winery is a prominent fixture along the West Sonoma County wine trail
in the heart of Russian River Valley. The winery is located off scenic Laguna Road on
one of the oldest historical winery sites in California (established in 1881). Its soaring
antique water tower, built in the 1940s, beckons you to stop in and stay a while.

anything but humble. Martin Ray Winery produces several popular, award-winning
wines that have caught the attention of discerning palates, such as:
2011 Martin Ray Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon nabbed the gold medal at
the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
2011 Martin Ray Reserve Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon was not only a
gold medal at the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, it also received
92 points in the Cellar Selection of Wine Enthusiast in June 2014, as well as 90 points
in the August issue of Wine & Spirits Magazine not too shabby.
2010 Martin Ray Synthesis Napa Valley is another gold medal winner from the
2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and Wine Enthusiast rated the wine
94 points this past June.
These are merely a few of the award-winning wines that Martin Ray Winery

B.R. Cohn Winery Great Vibes, Tunes, Food and Wines


BY BONNIE ZIMMERMANN

The Summer Music Series at B.R. Cohn Winery is the perfect


ending to a day in wine country deep in the heart of Sonoma. The
series kicked off this year on June 14 and guests enjoyed great music,
amazing food, gourmet items from the shop and of course worldclass wines.
B.R. Cohn has the best of everything that Sonoma has to offer and
is definitely worth a visit. The Summer Music Series is held in the
Olive Grove on the property, and surrounded by beautiful vineyards,
mountains and architecture that takes one back to the 1920s.

B.R. Cohn is offering the following specials


to readers of Wine Country This Week
September 6th: Two-For-One Tickets, available now.
Use promo code MUSICSEPT
October 18th: Ticket price includes pre-concert pig roast
from 4 to 6 p.m.
The B.R. Cohn Winery and Olive Oil Company is one of the true
gems of Sonoma. Since 1974, the Cohn Family has operated this
small family winery which is surrounded by the 90-acre Olive Hill
Estate Vineyards where soils warmed by underground natural hot
springs and gentle ocean breezes create a unique microclimate
resulting in ideal growing conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon.
B.R. Cohn also produces Chardonnay from the Carneros Region and
Merlot from Sonoma Valley. A Sonoma County native since early
childhood, winery founder Bruce Cohns extensive agricultural
background served him well as he became immersed in all aspects of
wine growing at Olive Hill Estate Vineyards.
When asked about Cohns winemaking style, winemaker Tom
Montgomery stated Our winemaking philosophy is to produce wine
that is an expression of the land we farm and the vineyards we
receive grapes from. We make wine to preserve and enhance the

character of each grape variety and vineyard we harvest. And, that


pleases our customers.
Stop by the Gourmet Shop for a complimentary olive oil and
vinegar tasting. With a well rounded choice of flavors and styles,
these make the ideal gift or addition to your kitchen. The winery also
hosts wine country weddings and corporate events.
B.R. Cohn Winery plays host to a variety of events throughout the
year. Each fall, wine lovers and music fans flock to the B.R. Cohn
Charity Fall Music Festival and Golf Tournament, with proceeds
donated the Redwood Empire Food Bank, Sonoma Valley Education
Foundation and Veteran organizations.
For a perfect romantic wine country evening B.R. Cohns
Summer Music Series is the perfect pairing.
B.R. Cohn Winery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is
located at 15000 Sonoma Highway, Glen Ellen, CA 95442 Tours are

As part of the annual Red & White Ball, the Sonoma Valley High
School Senior Class of 2014 participated in a Teacher of the Year
survey. They were asked to reflect on their education, and teachers in
Sonoma Valley, and choose a favorite elementary teacher, middle
school teacher and high school teacher. Dave Neubacher, Kathy
Eshelman and Andy Gibson were selected by a significant number of
students. These teachers will be honored at the Red & White Ball as
the Red and White Teachers of the Year.
Last year funds raised were distributed to The Engineering
Design and Technology Pathway and Freshman Teams at Sonoma
Valley High School, as well as Preschool, Exploratorium Science in
all local elementary schools, Summer Reading Academy, Visual
Thinking Strategies art for elementary students, The School Garden
Project, which is now at all
public and charter schools, with
the gardens now providing
produce for the school cafeterias,
and the Teacher Support
Network Volunteer Program at
Sonoma Valley High School
which helps bring more than 50
volunteers to the high school
each week. Red and White Ball
funds were also shared with the
PTOs at each school and the
Sonoma Valley High School
Boosters Club.

New Summer Menu at the


Mayo Family Reserve Room
The Mayo Family Winerys Kenwood-based Reserve Room has announced
expanded summer hours and opening days as well as a new food and wine pairing
menu to take it through the summer months and into fall. The Reserve Room changes
its menu seasonally under the direction of Executive Chef Clayton Lewis.
Through October, the Mayo Family Reserve Room will be open seven days a week
from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Reservations can be made by calling (707) 833-5504 or
via OpenTable online reservation service.
The Mayo Family Reserve Room is one of the original wine and food pairing tasting
room experiences. Guests are seated and presented with seven of Chef Lewis elaborate
culinary creations, each paired with a Mayo Family reserve wine. The tasting takes
about an hour during which guests sample the pairings and converse with the Chef
Lewis. Pairing our wines with great food is something our family has been doing
since we started in 1993 with our first vintage, says Jeff Mayo. Since we inaugurated
the Reserve Room in 2005, and with the menu changing seasonally, we have
continually expanded our menu to try to feature as many of our wines as possible.
In a recent review of the experience, San Francisco Chronicle wine critic Jon Bonne
noted the substantial nature of the tasting makes Mayo Reserve Room worth a visit
and a good deal, an opinion echoed by the Wall Street Journals wine writers who
dubbed the Reserve Room an awesome experience and The Best Deal in Wine
Country.

Winesong 2014 Welcomes Return of Narsai David


Winesong 2014 is announced that longtime Master of
Ceremonies Narsai David will also serve as the Celebrity Chef for
the 30th year of Winesong, being the inspiration for the Auction
Luncheon menu.
Narsais love of cooking started in his mothers kitchen where he
and his brothers were not only welcomed, but encouraged. From
there, Narsai followed a simple totem when it comes to cooking
the easier the recipe, the more successful its likely to be. In the
San Francisco Bay Area, Narsai first worked with Henry Rubin and
Ed Brown at Berkeleys Pot Luck Restaurant and then launched a
gastronomes delight, Narsais Restaurant, in the small East Bay
community of Kensington. From 1970 until 1986, Narsais
Restaurant, Market and Catering businesses were a culinary mecca
for traveling gourmets. The hospitable redwood dining room
(fashioned from a giant redwood tank) was the backdrop for some
of the most attentive service and finest food ever served forth. The
wine list at Narsais was described as one of the ten finest in the
world by the New York Times. Centerpiece for the restaurants
fame was its Monday Night Dinner Series at which Narsai offered a
fixed menu from whatever cuisine happened to capture his
attention and appeal to his senses at the moment.
From 1978 to 1985, Narsais Market (next door to the
restaurant) presented a remarkable line of specialty foods,
including breads and his famed croissants repeatedly selected as
the finest anywhere. Desserts were also a specialty with many
creations first introduced at Narsais Market.
Narsais years as one of the Bay Areas leading restaurateurs were
overlaid with highly publicized caterings representing some of the
grandest, large scale outdoor dining experiences anyone has ever
known. Rock impresario Bill Graham called on Narsai regularly to
cater his concerts as did the Napa Valley Wine Auction and San
Francisco Symphony.
In 1977, Narsais broadcast career began with the nationally
syndicated PBS series, Over Easy. Over the years, several other
programs took off to showcase Narsais cuisine. He is now the
Food and Wine Editor for KCBS Radio in San Francisco, and has
been since 1984. Wherever he goes, Narsais objective remains the
same: to share the simple pleasures of cooking, food and wine
through education.
For more information on Narsai David, visit his website at
www.narsai.com.

Winesong
Winesong looks to continue its reputation as the premiere sureto-sell-out charitable wine event on the trend setting Mendocino
Coast. Starting on Friday, September 5, Winesong will offer guests
an insiders view of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir as Winesong and

Narsai David at Winesong 2013

Pinot Noir Celebration hosted by Little River Inn. On Saturday,
September 6, guests can stroll through the captivating Mendocino
Coast Botanical Gardens while enjoying a marvelous array of wine
and food from 100 highly acclaimed wineries and 50 top-notch
Northern California restaurants. The magnificent wine celebration
continues on into the Auction Tents for the always-entertaining
Live and Silent Auctions.
The New York Times recently released its annual Places to
Visit list, with Mendocino County's North Coast taking the No. 3
spot out of 52 destinations. With its dramatic coastal setting
Mendocino is quickly becoming a top wine country getaway. Last
years auction grossed over $500,000 to benefit the Mendocino
Coast Hospital Foundation. Highlights of the 2013 auction
included the fund a need lot specifically to be used to purchase
a new ambulance brought in $116,000 in a matter of minutes.
For more information and to purchase tickets visit
www.winesong.org or call (707) 961-4688.
Auction Reserve Tickets with assigned seating under the auction
tent, Celebrity Chef Lunch and access to wine and food tasting

Harvest Wine Celebration Fun Poured into One Day


For more than 30 years, people have gathered in historic
Livermore Valley wine country over Labor Day Weekend to enjoy the
fruit of the vines. Like a fine wine, the Harvest Wine Celebration has
evolved over time and there are more changes planned for the 2014
vintage.
Surveys and analysis of previous celebrations show that the
majority of guests enjoy the Sunday festivities the most, so the festival
will now be held on a single day. On Sunday, August 31, between
noon and 5 p.m., local wineries will offer Livermore Valleys best
wine, food, art and music to ticket holders. And, there will be no
buses shuttle bus service between wineries was a signature part of
the event in the past, but it also was the source of many frustrations.
Everyones favorite parts of the Harvest Wine Celebration music,
arts and craft vendors, local foods and festivities at all the wineries
will continue. We eliminated the buses because the transportation
experience did not consistently meet the expectations we strive to
achieve for our guests, said Chris Chandler, executive director of the
Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association. We are combining efforts
to serve the best wine for attendees and also have added reserve
tasting experiences at each winery for a nominal additional fee.
For the 2014 festival, 37 wineries will host festivities at their
tasting rooms across Livermore Valley, and seven more wineries will
be pouring at either Concannon Vineyard or Wente Vineyards on
Tesla Road. All locations will offer wine tasting, fresh food vendors,
local artisans and festive music. Wineries are open only to ticket
holders with event wristbands.
Monday is no longer an official part of the Harvest Wine
Celebration, but many wineries have opted to waive tasting fees for
those with a wristband on Monday, September 1. Guests should
check The Independent event program to see which wineries will
honor wristbands on Monday.
The 2014 admission price of $45 includes commemorative
Livermore Valley wine glass, admission and tastings of at least two

wine varietals at each of more than 40 participating wineries, parking


and official event program. Attendees can save 10% when buying 10
or more tickets together. Designated driver tickets for guests over age
15 are $10 at the event only.
Tickets are available at participating wineries, Bay Area Safeway
stores, The Wine Steward in Pleasanton, First Street Wine Company
in Livermore and online at www.LVwine.org.
Harvest Time, the painting of a harvester carrying a basket of
freshly picked grapes that graces 2014 Harvest Wine Celebration
posters and program, was created by local artist Scott Cleek.
Wineries hosting Harvest Wine Celebration festivities at their
tasting room locations are 3 Steves Winery, AuburnJames, Bent Creek
Winery, Big White House Winery, Boa Ventura de Caires Winery,
Caddis Winery, Charles R Vineyards, Concannon Vineyard, Crooked
Vine Winery, Cuda Ridge Wines, Dante Robere Vineyards, Darcie
