What is Wine Sediment?

F O R

C O N S U M E R

by Len Napolitano

F O R T H E W I N E C O N S U M

Despite its negative appeal to American wine drinkers, sediment in wine may not only be an indication of an old wine. It is also possible that it indicates one made in recent years with hand-crafted care in order to maintain its unique quality and character over the long term. This bitter tasting but harmless residue is the byproduct of the appli- cation of little or no filtration in the winemaking process, thus enabling a wine’s personality to more fully develop in the bottle. Sediment in red wine is created over time by the breakdown of pigments and tannin within the wine. As time matures the wine, small amounts of these two these phenolic compounds gradually settle at the bottom of the bottle. Phenolic compounds are anti-oxidants and are believed to be the reason for wine’s various health benefits.

It is possible that a wine of recent vintage will show some form of sediment, particularly unfiltered wines. It is important to know that this is not an indication of a fault in the wine. It will not be harmful if consumed. Even white wines could leave a deposit of harmless crys- tals inside the bottle, which is simply an indication that the wine was previously exposed to very cold temperatures after it was bottled. These are called tartrate crystals and may also be found attached to the bottom of corks. Besides allowing a wine to breathe and open up in advance of drinking it, the process of decanting a wine will clear the wine of sedi- ment when it is carefully poured into a separate vessel. When preparing to decant a wine that contains sediment, allow the bottle to stand undisturbed in advance for about 24 hours, if possible, to allow the microscopic solids to settle at the bottom of the bottle. Be mindful not to shake or vibrate the bottle before uncorking it. This will stir up the sediment and make decanting more difficult. When ready to decant, slowly pour the wine into a clean decanter vessel and closely observe the wine passing through the neck of the bottle. As soon as the wine inside the neck shows sediment, stop pouring. Some sommeliers place a lit candle under the neck to make it easier to see the wine the instant it changes clarity.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWS Over 250 QualityWines Under $25 at Wine Garage

Over 250 QualityWines Under $25 at Wine Garage

Hidden next to a dilapidated ’40s-era former filling station on Highway 29 in Calistoga lies the Wine Garage. A unique wine shop in Napa Valley that retails all wine in the store under $25. Sound crazy? Its true. And the proprietors Todd and Joy Miller, have hit on a niche in the Valley that had been very missed by the locals there. “There are a lot of winemakers here that can’t afford to drink the wine they make” says Miller. “That’s crazy, yes, but who can afford to drink a $65 bottle with dinner every night?” Many people miss The Wine Garage on the first try upvalley, but the search is well worth it. Miller stocks wine from all of California’s wine growing regions including fifty Napa selections and 40 from Sonoma County. When he first sought out buying the initial inventory, “I enlisted a local farmer buddy and his 15-foot box van and off we went all over California hunting down the deals. I tried to seek out the small producers who didn’t have distributors so I could pass the savings on to my customers.” And Miller did just that. His store is stocked with high- quality juice all under $25 and all are unique. Most labels in the shop are unrec- ognizable – but all pass the same test; everything passes over Miller’s lips before he makes a buy. “If I don’t love it, I don’t buy it, period. Sometimes I will taste over 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 my buddy 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 it entailed. 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 a verbal description of a customer’s favorite wine and translate that into a recom- mendation for sometimes a third of the cost. “I have people all over the country that use me as their local wine shop. I ship right to their door – and the cost of the shipping is a drop in the bucket compared to what they save on the cost of the wine. Miller gets deals on Napa wine too. “I have winemakers from small wineries stop in every week saying ‘I have something that will fit into the store,’ if they only have 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 at 1020 Foothill Blvd (Hwy 29), Calistoga, CA 94515. For more information, call (707) 942-5332. You can also check out the website at winegarage.net.
