Petite Sirah, also known as Durif, is usually used as a blending grape for adding color, tannin and
intensity of fruit flavor. It is not uncommon to find this grape as a single varietal wine, though fewer than
ten percent of U.S. producers make Petite Sirah. The grape can create a delicious and interesting wine
with dense, inky quality, blackberry flavor and a long smoky finish. In fact, there isnt anything petite
about it, except for its small berry diameter and cluster size. If you like big, bold, red wine, you will like
Petite Sirah. Check out PS, I Love You, an organization of Petite Sirah producers. They conduct tasting
events open to the public a fun way to experience this special varietal.
Syrah, known in Australia as Shiraz, is more frequently made as a single-varietal wine. The color is
less intense than Petite Sirah, though not without strong and mouthwatering flavor. Naturally peppery,
Syrah is a popular choice to serve with beef stews and flavorful
dishes made with game. Its geographic home has long been
associated with the north-south-running Rhne Valley, a controlled
wine appellation in the southeast section of France. Famous Syrahbased wines from the Rhne Valley are Cte Rtie and Hermitage,
representing Syrahs full potential as a forward, spicy wine of deep
ruby color.

BY JOSH STEIN

Is a Barrel by Another Name as Oaky?


Were Master Shakespeare to have included a winemaker in one
of his plays, the famous phrase might have become To oak or not
to oak? That is the question, and that would have been a spot on
assessment, for few things bring on more questions, anxieties and
myths than the discussion of oak usage and winemaking. Were
they able to offer comment themselves, I imagine a towering oak
offering something along the lines of Chill out and just enjoy
because, as with many other aspects of winegrowing, the
discussions tend to complicate and obscure the reality from the
winemakers perspective.
For whites, the decisions come down to the degree, if any, of oak
influence. Many white varieties do not benefit from oak exposure,
and even neutral barrels (barrels used long enough that oak
tannin is no longer perceptible in wines stored therein) can cause a
stylistic miscue since barrels play host to Oenococcus oeni, the
bacteria responsible for malic-to-lactic acid conversion. Unless
extraordinary and expensive precautions are taken, most
winemakers would combine separate lots of filtered oaked and

unoaked whites to arrive at a blend with the desired level of oak


influence rather than hoping to arrive at an ideal middle through
chance in the barrel.
Red wines, though, present a bit of a different set of options.
Oak is useful throughout the production process, so some folks will
be using toasted or untoasted oak shavings at the crusher in cooler
harvests to alleviate any underripe green aromatics or flavor
compounds from methoxypyrazines, which contribute cigar or
tobacco at low levels and green pepper or grassy, herb-y notes at
higher levels. Winemakers can ferment in barrels either by
removing the heads and punching down into upright barrels or
through reassembling the barrels and using a rotation system to
keep the cap wet by spinning. They can use larger puncheons to
give more subtle, rounder notes to the wine without giving as
oaky a presence liquid volume to surface area matters a lot; the
larger the vessel, the less the influence, everything else being equal.
Post-pressing, most reds are aged either in barrel or in tanks with
some kind of oak adjunct inserted; as with barrel options so go the
adjuncts: winemakers have choices that range from oak source
(American, French, Hungarian, blends and beyond), to toast level,
to toasted or untoasted heads in barrels, and a slew of options for
creating oak effects sans barrels including beans, cubes, spirals,
blocks, sticks-in-chains to fit into barrel bungholes, and staves of
various shapes and sizes for tank inserts. Think back to your first
visit to a big toystore as a kid; now picture an adult kid and you
know how winemakers feel about their oak options. Its great to
have choices, but there are lots of options, and one is not
necessarily better than another.
At the end of the day, oak is like every other part of the
winemaking process: a series of decisions through which the final
wine is realized, and the key thing winemakers must come to terms
with in order to do their best work is that making a particular
decision, or refusing to make it, will have an impact on that final
bottling either way. Winemakers grow and cook with grapes, and
once the process starts, the vessel in which the fermentation takes
place absolutely has an impact but you must start with the best
ingredients possible. Just like cooking. 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

STERLING VINEYARDS
An Iconic Winery that Makes You
Feel on Top of the World!
BY MONICA L. DASHWOOD

Mention this article before 12:00pm PST to save $10 off your admission!*

Sterling Vineyards is one of the most sought after destinations


in the world. With its stunning panoramic views, Greek
architecture, historic artifacts, award-winning wines and
guaranteed good times, Sterling Vineyards stands majestic above
the town of Calistoga, offering a top wine tasting experience like
no other.
For starters, an aerial tram takes you 300 feet up the hill to
the winery. At the top, feast your eyes on the rugged Mayacamas
and Vaca mountain ranges that showcase both sides of the
glorious Napa Valley. With a delicious glass of Sterling
Vineyards wine in your hand, you will marvel at the views and
their extraordinary Greek architecture. Sterling Vineyards
striking white building was inspired from Mediterranean-style
architecture off the island of Mykonos, where Sterling founder
Peter Newton often vacationed.
Newtons love for history can be seen in the winerys towers
where it houses eight bells from Londons Church of St.
Dunstans-in-the-East, originally founded in the 10th century.
These ancient bells sound through the valley, tolling the
Westminster Quarters chime on the quarter hour.
Sterling Vineyards portfolio of excellent premium wines
will be sure to impress. With over 20 varietals from the richest
terroir, Sterling Vineyards prides themselves on their awardwinning wine reputation, including the 2010 Platinum
Reserve 91 Points from Robert Parker (2013 Wine Advocate)!
A blend that is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with small
amounts of Petit Verdot and Malbec, the Platinum Reserve
offers an impressive bouquet of cocoa, blackberries, black
currant, espresso and a hint of charcoal. The reserve is a must

originated almost 2,000 years ago in ancient Greece, it is part of the

and orange blossom, which playfully dance through ripe nectarines
and apricots.

Don Carano says, Great wine begins in the vineyard, and he would know
as Ferrari-Carano started with a small, thirty-acre plot of grapes purchased in
1979 and today controls nineteen estate vineyards in six different appellations
totaling over 1,500 acres. What sets the winery apart to this day is the
insistence on using the same techniques today as they did back then: labor
intensive and unique irrigation and nutrient regimes, trellising systems and
canopy management, rootstock and clone combinations, and pruning and
cane selections for each vineyard site and each block within each vineyard in
Sonoma, Napa/Carneros and Mendocino counties. Equally, sustainable
farming is also utilized, recycling organic matter for use as mulch in the
vineyards, planting cover crops and other plant species to avoid soil erosion
and to add desirable nutrients back to the soil and attract desirable insects,
and integrating animals to naturally enhance biodiversity and nutrient
recycling.
Don Carano is also on the record as stating, The bottom line is quality
without compromise. This is a commitment we feel is reflected in every bottle
of our wine. The results are more than three dozen award-winning releases,
spanning multiple families, or tiers, of wines. The Classics include
Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Reserve Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot
Noir, the Trsor red blend, and Zinfandel releases while the Vineyard Selects
bottlings present Cabernet, four different Chardonnays, and two different
Pinot Noirs. The Spirit of Italy wines include the Bella Luce white blend,
Pinot Grigio, and the Siena red blend; the PreVail series offers multiple block-

designated hillside Cabernet releases; and there are even a few sweet
red and white wines, too.
Options abound for trying these releases, and you even have two
choices of location to taste: you can visit Ferrari-Carano Vineyards
and Winery in Dry Creek Valley or taste the wines in Healdsburg at
Ferrari-Caranos Seasons of the Vineyard Wine Shop. The former site
is a spectacular Italianate hospitality center, named Villa Fiore, set
amidst the seventy-acre Dry Creek Valley estate vineyard. Visitors are
transported to the Italian countryside at the curved mahogany and
black granite wine tasting bar and its backdrop of large, arched
windows that overlook the estate, the surrounding mountains, and
the villa fountain pavilion. If youd like an in-depth look at the
Ferrari-Carano estate, reserve your spot for the appointment-required
free winery tour daily at 10 a.m. Hosted by friendly and
knowledgeable staff, visitors stroll through the gardens, see vineyards
up close, take a gander at the crush pad and in the winerys cellars
and tank rooms, view Don and Rhonda Caranos personal wine cellar,
and visit the tasting room.
It is the reservations-required private tastings in the PreVail Room,
though, offered Tuesday through Saturday at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.,
where the winery has pulled out all the stops. Pick of the Bunch
walks through an in-depth tasting of five wines of your choice while
Matchmaker is all about wine and food pairing made easy with
four wines and delicious, seasonal small bites. White Wine Lovers
tastes five wines with local cheeses, Passion for Pinot presents four
Anderson Valley and Russian River Valley Pinots with small bites, and
the King of Reds tastes four Cab-based wines and a delicious
dessert wine paired with chocolates and dried fruit. Cabernet
Terroir presents four wines from uniquely different vineyards in
Alexander Valley paired with an artisan charcuterie plate while
PreVail Verticals offers the latter paired with four mountain Cabs.
Last but not least, Scentiments tests your smell memory on five
wines. An email to privatetasting@ferrari-carano.com or a call to the
Hospitality Department are the easiest ways to partake in these wideranging options.
Despite all of the above experiences, not to be forgotten is spot

number two, Seasons of the Vineyard, a unique wine country


boutique and wine tasting bar, where visitors may taste FerrariCarano and Lazy Creek Vineyards wines while they shop wine
country. The vintage brick walls and wooden floors create the
perfect backdrop for the long wine bar that spans one side, and the
walls are decorated with original art, which is for sale by
consignment. Artisan Scharffen Berger chocolates are available for
tasting, and special wine and chocolate pairings are featured at the
tasting bar. Seasons of the Vineyard, located at 116 Plaza Street,
Healdsburg, CA, is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through
Sunday.
As you can see, Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery has put all
the pieces in place to grow great wines and present them in eyecatching and memorable ways. Regardless of whether you choose
Dry Creek or Healdsburg, the results will be the same: great wines
produced the same way they have been for almost three decades,
guaranteeing they will not disappoint. Stop in or make a reservation

Located just outside the wine-drenched hamlet of


Healdsburg is a special kind of old-new place. Old-new, what
the heck is that? you may ask. Well, heres the scoop Geyser
Peak Winery was founded over 150 years ago (old) and has
produced lots of great award-winning wines through the years
at their original chateau-like Geyserville location. They still
make wonderful wines, but now the winery and tasting room
has a (new) location, just off of Westside Road, at the former
home of Alderbrook Winery. So, there you have it, old-new.
With great wines and gracious hospitality. What more could you
want?
Over 70 acres of vineyards surround the large farmhouse-like
tasting room. A large covered front porch sets a welcoming tone
and the grassy picnic area behind the tasting room tempts
visitors to relax, kick off their shoes and stay a while.
The inside of the tasting room is gorgeous! Floor-to-ceiling
windows let in lots of Sonoma County sunshine, the dark
hardwood floors echo with the laughter of well-heeled
customers and a long bar spans the back of the room. The Peak
Room sits off to the side for private seated tastings. A fireplace
takes up one wall, surrounded by cozy, cushy chairs and
couches. A tasteful selection of non-wine merchandise is artfully
displayed around the large, airy room, perfect for browsing
while you sip.
Geyser Peak Winerys friendly, knowledgeable staff will guide
you through the tasting selections at the bar. Private tastings are
available for groups of up to 30 people by appointment.
There are lots of fun events in the works at Geyser Peak,
including jazz concerts, farm-to-table feasts and more!
If you are going to be in the area in early December, dont
miss Geyser Peaks Holiday Open House on Saturday,
December 6 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.! Enjoy a festive day, full of
special wine offerings, food pairings, music and entertainment.
You will sample rare library vintages in large format bottles,
learn how to make wine-based cocktails, create your own
beautiful and delicious holiday wine and gourmet food gift
baskets, help support the Redwood Empire Food Bank with
your donation of canned food (and save an additional 10% on
your purchases that day) and sing along with the carolers. Ill be
there I dont want to miss this party!

New Science of Food Series


Launches at Exploratorium
Pairings Debut Thursday, November 13
The Exploratorium is launching a new monthly program that
combines science and food, bringing together chefs, nutritionists,
scientists, vintners, farmers and other experts for conversations thatll
inspire your inquisitive palate.
Called Pairings: Cultivating a Taste for Science Through Food, the
series stirs together two worlds to create a pleasing complexity.
Food is fundamental to comfort and science is fundamental to
understanding the world, said Melissa Alexander, director of public
programs at the Exploratorium. Both are products of human
curiosity and experimentation. When we combine them, they
nourish our intellect and our spirit.
Pairings launches on Thursday, November 13 at 7:30 p.m. with
The Dirt on Dirt, a deep dive into how the soil we walk on plays a
role in the food we eat.
Opening the night of delectable presentations is Exploratorium
staffer and resident gastronomist Paul Stepahin, who'll give the
lowdown on why you cant just eat dirt. Then, join SeaGlass
Restaurant General Manager Clay Reynolds for the truth about terroir,
the concept behind how soil, climate and growing conditions affect
the flavor and aroma of wine.
Continue the conversation with a microbiology lesson by Torey
Arvik, director of applied and research science at SonomaCeuticals/
WholeVine, learning about the minerals and micronutrients found in
the by-products of wine making. Delicious bites by Chef Loretta
Keller of the SeaGlass Restaurant will be served throughout the
evening.
The event is expected to run between 60 and 90 minutes and will
be held at SeaGlass Restaurant in the Exploratorium at Pier 15. Free

Vineyard. Although the growing season provided numerous
challenges third consecutive drought year, South Napa Earthquake,
late season hail and more NVG anticipates 2014 to be one of its
highest quality crops, resulting in a continued increase in the value of
the Napa wine grapes.
Though the drought continued to concern grape growers
throughout the growing season, spring rain came at the right time
providing the necessary water needed for a fairly smooth growing
season and perfect conditions for producing a high quality crop. The
warm spring weather resulted in an early bud break and heat spikes
forced harvest to begin a week earlier than 2013. Growers picked at
night and in the very early morning hours to bring the grapes in at
the perfect time and in cool weather better for the grapes and the
farmworkers.
We were on a bit of a roller coaster this year, said Allison Cellini,
NVG member and Viticulturist at Renteria Vineyard Management.
But good contingency planning and an early harvest have produced
fantastic grapes. This latest heat spike pushed the grapes to optimal
ripeness. As soon as theyre off the vines, wed like to see a very rainy
winter. Nearly five percent of Napa Valley is undergoing replanting
of vines that are 25 years and older and no longer producing.
One particularly odd phenomenon of the 2014 season is that the
August 24 South Napa Earthquake caused seasonal creeks to
magically start running without any rain falling, proving there is a
large amount of water under Napa Valleys wine grape roots.

Weather
Fruit held up well during unseasonal hail storm
February and March 2014 rainfall was 11-17 inches, falling at
exactly the right time of the season to sooth drought concerns and
mitigate irrigation needs
2014 total rainfall is around 50-60% of normal
Napa Valleys microclimates proved themselves when on a single
day one part of the Valley had a heat spike, while another had a
frost alert
July 2014 average high temperature ranged from 80 degrees in
Carneros to 92 in Calistoga and Pope Valley right in the sweet
zone for fine wines
March June 2014 months were all 3-5 degrees higher than
average, getting the vines off to a strong start

Technology
While drones are not expected over the vineyards any time soon,
NVG noted that grape growers have been using aerial monitoring,
in the form of a cameras on airplanes, for decades
Increased remote vineyard monitoring via weather stations enables
growers to make faster decisions in regards to a specific vineyard or
part of a vineyard, further refining crop management practices
Optical sorters are becoming more sophisticated and are used to
continue to elevate quality
Drought conditions over the past few years have prompted many
growers to invest in more sophisticated technology, such as soil
moisture probes, sap flow sensors, and evapotranspiration
monitoring, to determine exactly when and how much to irrigate
NVGs ROOTSTOCK, a revolutionary conference designed for top
quality grape growers, vineyard and winery owners, and
winemakers worldwide, debuts November 13 at the Napa Expo
Fairgrounds. The conference provides access to high-level,
provocative seminars and industry experts, wine trials and tastings,

brands growing portfolio of wines and spirits
since this summer. The new products
include the following:

Mnage Trois Prosecco


Mnage Trois Prosecco DOC is made
from 100% Glera, the golden grapes native to
Northeast Italy which gives this fun, fresh
and flirty sparkler that special glow.
According to the tasting notes, delicate
bubbles rise to the surface, releasing a
gorgeous floral fragrance. The taste profile
brings refreshing citrus and tropical flavors
which lead to a crisp, clean finish. Mnage
Trois Prosecco is $14.99 and available
nationally.

Hanukkah Hootenanny - A Party Like No Other!


What do surf music, jelly donuts, brisket
sliders and Napa wine all have in common?
If you said, the 9th Annual Hanukkah
Hootenanny on Sunday, December 7th from
12 to 2:30 p.m. at Judds Hill Winery, then
you are a person in the know or an extremely
lucky guesser.
For nearly a decade, Judds Hill Winery
and MicroCrush has hosted this Napa Valley
Hanukkah party like no other. As you would
expect, the event features a wide variety of
Judds Hill wines, both current releases and
library offerings. There will also be plenty of
food, including the traditional food of the
Hanukkah season, fresh hot latkes, decadent
jelly donuts and delicious beef brisket
(prepared as sliders).
Its right about here where this
Hootenanny veers off into a different
direction from your bubbys Hanukkah
celebrations of yore As with any good
party, Hanukkah or otherwise, having the
right entertainment is key. Ever since the
first Hanukkah Hootenanny, Judds Hill has
welcomed the band, Meshugga Beach Party,
to delight the crowd with traditional Jewish
songs enthusiastically performed in an
instrumental surf-rock style, a la Dick Dale.
Dressed like rabbis, the guys execute
synchronized dance moves and occasionally
unfurl the dead joke scrolls to deliver
ancient one-liners in the finest tradition of
the Catskills. You may have caught the bands
act at Bay Area Jewish heritage festivals, the
famous Bay to Breakers, and hipster havens
like Lebowski Fest, Forbidden Island Tiki
Lounge and the Hubba Hubba Burlesque

Revue. If not, this is your chance at some


serious Hava Nagila shenanigans. To get an
idea of the hilarity that awaits you, check out
their uproarious clips on YouTube.
The party takes place on the winerys
covered crushpad, in full view of the
adjoining Kairos Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyard. Traditional dreidels and gelt are

provided for all. And once the party really


gets going, Judds family usually leads
revelers in dancing the Hora, the traditional
circular dance of celebration.
Tickets are $55 per person, or free for
Wine Club members. The Judds Hill Wine
Club is free to join and you can find more
information about it at www.juddshill.com.
As you can see, this is a wonderful
celebration, not to be missed. It is also an
event that supports a great cause. A portion
of ticket sales and proceeds from the days
wine sales are donated to Napa Childrens
Health Initiative, a nonprofit corporation
dedicated to achieving 100% healthcare
coverage for all Napa County children.
So eat, drink, dance and be merry! This
event does sell out quickly, so call the winery
today at (707)-255-2332 to make your
reservation.

Napa Valleys New Modern Gastropub, The Farmer & The Fox
at Cairdean Estate, Scores a Bib Gourmand from Michelin Guide
The Farmer & The Fox, open just three months prior to Michelin
inspectors making their way through California wine country for the
2015 Michelin guide, is one of just two restaurants in Napa Valley
new to the guide this year. The Bib Gourmand, considered one of
the most coveted awards in the restaurant industry since 1997, is an
honor defined as Inspectors' Favorites for Good Value. These
restaurants offer two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or
less (exclusive of tax and gratuity) and are often frequented by locals
who regularly dine in neighborhood restaurants.
Fast Facts about Bib Gourmand in the 2015 Michelin Guide:
75 Restaurants in the entire San Francisco Bay Area
have received the Bib Gourmand
25% of Bib Gourmand winners are in Wine Country
(Napa or Sonoma)
13 Bay Area Restaurants are new to the list this year,
including The Farmer & The Fox
Other well-known dining destinations in San Francisco
with Bib Gourmands include Kokkari Estiatorio, A16,
Bar Tartine, Cotogna, Perbacco and Yank Sing
The restaurant combines contemporary farmhouse-style aesthetics
with beautiful custom finishes, fabrics and furnishings. Joseph

www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

Humphrey, Executive Chef of The Farmer & The Fox and its
neighboring destination bakery, deli and culinary boutique is no
stranger to the Michelin Guide. In 2008 he received two Michelin
stars when he relaunched The Restaurant at Meadowood and was
awarded one Michelin star for each of the three years he served as
Executive Chef of Cavallo Point in Sausalito. At The Farmer & The
Fox he has designed an ingredient-driven menu that changes with
the season with a nod to the great gastropubs of the United
Kingdom. Its a huge honor to be included in the Michelin guide
this year, particularly at such a young restaurant. Im especially proud
of the kitchen and dining room team that put in the hard work every
day to make The Farmer & The Fox a great dining experience.

Best Winery in Napa award for 5 consecutive years in the Bay Area A-List.
2012 Winery of the Year by Connoisseurs guide to fine wine.

Founded in 1992, today Frank Family owns 380 acres of the finest vineyard land
in Napa Valley and has one of the biggest word-of-mouth followings in the wine
country. First constructed as the Larkmead Winery in 1884, the historic stone
building on the property was refinished with native sandstone from the nearby
hills in 1906. The massive stone edifice is considered one of the finest structures
in the Napa Valley; it appears on the National Register of Historical Places and is
listed as a Point of Historical Interest in the state of California.

1091 Larkmead Lane, 4 miles north of St. Helena

At this point in time, of course, it would be hard to find wine enthusiasts


or even the most casually interested who have not heard of KendallJackson, but what may surprise even the most hardcore of afficionados is
the range of wines produced today. Kendall-Jackson has a varied portfolio
of many wines that are sure to please any wine lovers palate, including
bottlings of Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from great regions like Sonoma
and Santa Barbara Counties, Chardonnay and Late Harvest Chardonnay,
Merlot, Muscat Canelli, OrangeMuscat, Pinot Noir, limited production red
blends, Riesling, Ros, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Viognier and Zinfandel.
And, that list barely scratches the surface of vineyard-driven or reserve
possibilities for th eintrepid!
Even more surprising is that there are two different locations in which to
enjoy this array. The Wine Estate and Gardens in Fulton is where it all
started thirty-two years ago, and it offers seven distinct garden spaces
through which to understand the impact of the land. The two-and-a-half
acres of gardens include Red and White Wine Sensory Gardens; Culinary,
International Cuisine, and Herb and Edible Flower Gardens; a Vegetable
Trial Garden and a Viticultural Garden; as well as Seasonal Gardens meant
to showcase the beauty of change itself. Weather-permitting, Garden Tours
and Tastings are offered daily at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Alternatively,
the Reserve Tasting allows selection of four wines to taste from a seasonal

menu of the Grand Reserve and Jackson Estate Wine Collections.


The Estate Tasting presents four limited releases from the Jackson
Estate and Stature series. Either includes a signature glass to take
home.
It is, absolutely, wine and food pairings which are the winerys
raison dtre, offering limited-release bottlings and estate-driven
bites. The Reserve Wine and Food Pairing proffers a seven-course
pairing focusing on the winerys small-production, limited release
wines. The Wine and Cheese Pairing offers Sonoma and Marin
farmstead cheeses paired with six food-friendly wines, with
accompaniments from the estate culinary garden for each cheese.
The Wine and Chocolate Pairing gives five off-dry and dessert
wine releases paired with delicious seasonal dessert creations from
the Culinary Team.
Equally, the space-limited Tasting Experiences span the gamut.
The above-mentioned hour-long Garden Tour & Tasting strolls
through the gardens while tasting limited-production wines. The
Blind Tasting Experience each Friday and weekend at 2 p.m.
samples a selection of everyday flavors and aromas to show how to
taste like a professional in just one hour.
However, the newest addition to the Kendall-Jackson lineup isnt
a wine but a locale. Partake by K-J is Kendall-Jacksons Tasting
Room and Restaurant in the center of Healdsburg. Its mission is to
explore a wide range of wine flights presented with a selection of
seasonal bites driven by the organic gardens and Sonoma Countys
culinary environment. During each day, visitors can explore mixand-match wines and small plates or enjoy a chef-curated
experience. Then, Wednesday through Sunday nights, the
restaurant in turn delivers seasonality and a close-to-home
sensibility via ingredients from the estate gardens and orchards and
enriched by the farmers and foragers of Sonoma County. There are
two options for the nightly meal: indulge in the seasonal dinner
menu and wine list or partake in the guided tasting menu created

to pair with exclusive Kendall-Jackson wines. For more


information about menus or to make reservations, visit
partakebykj.com or opentable.com.
As should be clear by now, Kendall-Jackson is our Tasting Room
of the Week because the winery keeps developing amazing
experiences not just for their own wines but to embrace the bounty
of Sonoma County and the magic of pairing local foods and wines
together. Whether visitors choose the estate and its gardens or
Healdsburg and its ambiance, the results will be the same: a new
appreciation of nature and its bounty, including the amazing
spectrum of Kendall-Jackson wines. Enjoy!

CELLARS OF SONOMA
Hippest Tasting Room & Wine Bar in Sonoma County
BY SUE STRAIGHT, THE WINE WENCH

133 Fourth Street, Santa Rosa CA


Open Sunday-Wednesday from 3 to 8:30 p.m.
Thursday - Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
(707) 578-1826 | www.cellarsofsonoma.com

www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

Santa Rosas Railroad Square is now THE place to be for the 30-and-over-crowd
(younger folks are welcome too, of course). This historic strip, located about an hour
north of San Francisco, is shining much brighter these days, due in large part to
Cellars of Sonoma, arguably the hippest tasting room and wine bar in Sonoma County.
Im giving away my age here, but let me just say that if I lived in Santa Rosa,
Cellars of Sonoma would be my hangout. There are many reasons why this is so
lets start with the building, which was originally constructed in 1909. The lovingly
restored vintage back bar (the oldest bar in Sonoma County), brick walls, hardwood
floors and high ceilings practically ooze history. Take this vintage charm and mix in a
splash of contemporary chic, using a modern tasting bar, leather barstools, comfy
leather furniture, an upstairs lounge and a big screen TV and voila! Thats the vibe at
Cellars of Sonoma.
There is a lot of exciting stuff going on here live music from top local talent is
featured Thursday through Saturday; the friendly, knowledgeable staff provides
unbeatable concierge service and an amazing array of delicious, small-production
wines are poured daily. Check out TV Tuesday! Its the longest-running live webcast
about wine in the world! For the most part, its filmed at Cellars of Sonoma, but has
been known to move to Spring Training for the San Francisco Giants and other
remote locations to film.
Every December, Cellars of Sonoma hosts a gala winemaker event, where
winemakers from all of the featured wineries pour their wines and rub elbows with
the guests.
The wines of Cellars of Sonoma deserve their own paragraph, so here we go nine
micro wineries (most produce 2000 cases or less) share the space and their wines are
offered in flight format. Flights consist of a sampling from each of the nine vintners,
pre-set or customized, according to your taste and cost $15. Food and wine pairings
are available by appointment and cost $25. Wine club members and up to four of
their guests are entitled to a complimentary flight of four wines along with special
discounts and invitations to wine club-only events.

GLORIA FERRER CAVES & VINEYARDS


Experience Spanish-Inspired Culture
BY DAWN MARIE CARLSON

For generations, my family has said, when you serve sparkling


wine, you are serving a smile, stated Gloria Ferrer. Here you are
feeling serene, sipping acclaimed sparkling wine and munching on
complimentary almonds on the Vista Terrace at Gloria Ferrer Caves
and Vineyards in Sonoma Carneros. The undisturbed view of the
valley overlooking the estate vineyard from the base of the golden
Sonoma Mountains is remarkable. The rockier Mayacama Mountains
rise in the distance and random patchwork vineyards dot the valley.
You continue to sample your sparkling wine flights while breathing in
the experience. Simply, sublime.

HISTORY
The Ferrer family has been growing wine grapes since the 1500s
and was the family behind La Freixeneda a 12th century farming
estate and well-established sparkling wine producers in Catalonia,
Spain near Barcelona. Jos Ferrers parents, Pedro Ferrer Bosch and
Dolores Sala Ferrer united two prominent Spanish wine families. The
result was Freixenet, which would eventually become the worlds
largest producer of sparkling wines in the world.
Jos, his wife Gloria and son Pedro came to California, purchased
a pasture in 1982 in Carneros an ideal Mediterranean climate and
planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. They incorporated their
Spanish winegrowing traditions and winemaking practices in creating
exceptional sparkling wines and estate varietal wines. Gloria Ferrer
Caves & Vineyards opened in 1986 as the first sparkling winery in
Carneros. Today, they own 335 prime acres of estate vineyards with
Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.

ARCHITECTURE
The winery architecture blends California mission design and
Spanish-inspired architecture modeled on the original Ferrer familys
11th-century Catalonian farmhouse (masia) in the hills outside
Barcelona in Sant Sandurni dAnoia. Spanish features are included

60

throughout the winery such as the grapevine-covered Spanish arbor,


the dcor, the red tile roof and stucco walls.

SPARKLING WINES
Gloria Ferrer brings Old World handcrafted wine practices in
creating California-style sparkling wines. They planted Pinot Noir
and Chardonnay grapes in the Home Ranch and Circle Bar Ranch
estate vineyards, which produce the entire fruit for their sparkling
wines.
Their secret: carefully hand-harvesting their grapes at night,
carrying the grapes to the winery in small bins and gently pressing
the fruit in whole clusters using membrane presses in their mthode
champenoise (fermenting naturally in the bottle) and storing the wine
in cool underground caves. The winemaking team creates seven
diverse sparkling wines from over 50 individual wine lots as the
blending palette. Through the entire process from grape harvest,
pressing, blending, double fermentation, aging, bottling and
riddling it takes two to ten years to produce a great bottle of Gloria
Ferrer sparkling wine. The distinctive blends offer different flavors
and textures including Brut, Blanc de Noirs, Blanc de Blanc, Vintage
Prestige Cuves and VA de VI. The Royal Cuve is a tribute to the
King of Spain in honor of their Spanish heritage.

WINEMAKING TEAM
Executive Winemaker Bob Iantosca, Winemaker Steven Urberg
and V.P. of Production Mike Crumly move seamlessly from the
vineyard to the cellar producing consistent quality Gloria Ferrer
sparkling and still wines from vintage to vintage. Gloria Ferrer
remains a leader in sustainable farming practices including
biodiversity, soil health, water management, energy conservation and
in systematic approaches to improving environmental practices. Bob
said, The synergy between the winemaking and the winegrowing
teams is one of our greatest benefits. Mike and I have studied every
block, year after year, with the ability to choose the rootstocks,

clones, trellising, vine spacing everything we need to make the best
sparkling and estate varietal wines from these Carneros vineyard
sites.

VARIETALS
Gloria Ferrer began making still wine after producing sparkling
wine to demonstrate further the mature vines that produce modest
yields with full fruit expression. They purchased new land and
constructed vineyards specifically designated for estate varietal wine
grapes with heirloom vines, constructed new extended underground
caves, purchased fermentation tanks, barrels and a separate crush
pad.
The four estate Pinots produced are distinctly different due to sitespecific terroir. Gravel Knob and Rust Rock Terrace Pinot Noir are
two vineyard-designated wines produced from the 128-acre Circle
Bar Ranch vineyard and the 207-acre Home Ranch vineyard. The Jos
S. Ferrer Selection Pinot Noir is a blend of the best blocks from the
estate vineyards. The Carneros Pinot Noir is a blend from eleven
different soil types from varied terrain and different clones and
selections.
Carneros is a prime cool climate for producing their awardwinning Carneros Chardonnay with warm, sunny days and cool
nights. They planted the Chardonnay grapes in the lower sections of
the vineyard where prime fruit flavor is optimal.
For the Carneros Merlot, they selected the grapes south of the
winery in the Thimbleberry Block of the estate vineyards along the
hillside of a small valley with clay soil similar to those of Pomerol in
Bordeaux.

AWARD-WINNING WINES
Top sommeliers recognize Gloria Ferrer wines in worldwide
competitions awarding over 400 gold medals. Wine experts continue
to deliver stellar reviews with over 30 outstanding 90+ ratings in the
last five years. In June, The Wine Spectator gave 93 points to the
2008 Anniversary Cuve, 90 points to the 2003 Carneros Cuve, and
90 points to the Sonoma Brut. Wine & Spirits Magazine voted Gloria
Ferrer the 2013 Winery of the Year.

SONOMA VALLEY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

OSO Opens on The Sonoma Plaza


BY MELISSA VOGT

Dining Becomes a Transcendent Experience


OSO is a welcomed addition to the restaurant
and wine bar scene in Sonoma County. Located on
the Sonoma square, OSO features a fresh, local
California-style menu with seasonally-inspired
ingredients. The dishes are heavily influenced by French and
Japanese cuisine, but draw on a wide range of culinary greatness to
showcase the astounding talent of Owner and Executive Chef David
Bush. Wine Director Brian Kulich has taken the menu to the next
level with a phenomenal selection of local and international wines
that are perfectly paired to Bushs innovative and unique dishes. This
food and wine pairing experience is offered by reservation only
between the hours of 5:30 and 9 p.m. on weekdays and 5:30 to 9:30
p.m. on weekends. The other dining option includes a la carte dishes
and wine by the glass or bottle, and is available to guests between
4 and 11 p.m. on weekdays, and 4 p.m. and midnight on weekends
making OSO the only restaurant on the Sonoma Plaza to remain
open during these late night hours.
Repurposed wood, corrugated tin and the original wood flooring
from the 1800s contribute to the comfortable and rustic atmosphere
of the restaurant. The bar is skillfully-crafted with overlapping wood
panels of various shades and sizes mimicking the eclectic menu that
Bush has created. Stunning and diverse artwork adorn the walls,
while gentle but colorful lighting and soft music set the mood for the
perfect dining experience.

Highlights from the tasting menu include a deliciously-fresh


starter of pickled shrimp with shaved fennel, baby beets and
horseradish crme frache. The La Staffa 2013 Verdicchio dei Castelli
di Jesi Classico was a delightfully fresh accompaniment to the dish;
with melon fruit on the nose and lime, lime leaf, unripe melon,
honeydew and gentle spice on the palate, this wine was an excellent
choice for the savory, sweet, and spicy flavors of the pickled shrimp.
The horseradish crme frache enhanced the spice on the palate,
brightened the fruit flavors, and imparted gentle minerality in the
wine. The textures and flavors of this dish were phenomenal with the
freshly-chilled shrimp, creamy horseradish crme frache, tender
sweet beets, and ever-so-pungent fennel all working together to
create the perfect combination of culinary pleasure.
The roasted sea bass with fermented black bean, soba noodles,
bok choy and bacon was also a tasty dish that boasted a unique
arrangement off appetizing flavors and varied textures. From the
immensely flavorful fermented black bean broth to the tender sea
bass, this dish was a textural playground that came to life even more
when paired with the Peay Vineyards 2012 Scallop Shelf Pinot Noir.
The mouth-watering broth and flavor-packed bacon gave extra
weight to the body of the wine, in addition to creating layers of
complexity on the palate. The tender sea bass flaked perfectly and the
weight of its texture stood up well to the gentle oak in the wine; the
bok choy also added a layer of earthy flavors that complemented the
Pinot Noirs intricate profile.
Other dishes on the tasting menu were the steamed egg custard
with Dungeness crab, pumpkin, green onion and tobiko; Syrahbraised short ribs with smoked gouda polenta, pickled red onions
and spinach; and for dessert a peanut butter mousse with chocolate
chiffon, Syrah-soaked blueberries and pretzel streusel. Each of these
dishes was a delight to enjoy, full of flavor and innovation, and wellpaired with a wide range of fantastic local and international wine.
From beginning to end, dining at OSO was a transcendent
experience.

Lula Cellars of Mendocino Debuts New 22-Acre Home


Beautiful New Tasting Room in Anderson
Valley Showcases Award-winning Wines
On October 1, 2014, Lula Cellars
debuted a unique experience in wine tasting,
with the opening to the public of its new
22-acre property, nestled amongst the rolling
hills of bucolic Anderson Valley in
Mendocino County.
The new property, with a quarter mile of
frontage along Hwy. 128 in Philo, features a
tasting room, a pond, a 14-acre Pinot Noir
vineyard and a small-production
winemaking facility, and beginning in 2015,
a 10,000-square-foot Events Area will be
available for weddings and other private
events.
This is a huge expansion for us, states
Jeff Hansen, winemaker at Lula Cellars. The
new property will offer visitors an interactive
experience that will engage all the senses,
and is the perfect vehicle to showcase our
award-winning wines and the beauty and
bounty of Anderson Valley.
The new pet-friendly tasting room, which
offers stunning views of the surrounding
property, is located at 2800 Guntley Road in
Philo (at the corner of Hwy. 128 and

Lula Cellars is the small production,
ultra-premium label of winemaker and
Grand Fromage Jeff Hansen, a twentyeight year wine industry veteran who was
previously winemaker and part owner of a
well-respected winery in Napa. With a
yearly case production of 2,800 cases,
comprised of Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Dry
Gewurztraminer, Rosato (Ros of Pinot
Noir) and Pinot Gris. Lula Cellars
produces wines entirely from vineyards in
Mendocino County. Since 2010, Lula
Cellars has built a reputation of integrity,
positive customer relations and stellar
wines. The goal of Lula Cellars is simple:
to produce quality, world class wines and
to offer them at prices that are reasonable,
by selling directly to consumers (no
distributors or retailers involved). Lula
Cellars was named for Jeffs maternal
grandmother Lula, who was born in 1879
and lived to the age of 89.

week, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. To contact the
