Clay Walker is one of those artists. Whether on stage or in the recording studio, Clay never gives less than a hundred percent, and it’s that kind of dedicated work Clay Walker headlines the Tri-County Fair concert on Aug. 31 Krystal Keith is the daughter of country legend Toby Keith ethic combined with God-given talent that have made him one of the most successful country acts of the past decade. He first topped the Billboard chart with “What’s It to You?” and “Live Until I Die.” Since then he’s driven 31 titles to the top. Clay Walker has enjoyed his share of success at the cash registers and has been one of the busiest artists on the road. He’s scored four platinum-selling albums, signifying sales of a million units, and two gold albums, discs that sold over 500,000 units. Rising country music star Krystal Keith will open for Clay Walker. Krystal, the daughter of famed country music star Toby Keith, recently released her first album, a work critics say reveals a breadth that is rarely seen on debut efforts. Tickets to see Clay Walker and Krystal Keith live are now available at www.winnemucca.com. Some reserved seating is available on the concert floor; other seats are available in the mezzanine and bleacher areas of the indoor event center. “We encourage people to come early for the rodeo and concert and enjoy the fair exhibits, food and to find a good parking space,” said Petersen. He added, “You won’t want to miss this show,” he said. “It’s going to be a great night.” 6 | Inside Northern Nevada | AUGUST 2013 Clay Walker to perform Aug. 31 in Winnemucca!

Site of the historic U.S. Mint, the museum still operates the original Coin Press No. 1 on the last Friday of each month. When the bar is melted into 1000 1-ounce round medallions, the celebrated press will stamp commemorative editions, with the “CC” mint mark, honoring the state’s sesquicentennial which is Nevada Day, 2014. Coeur Rochester mining officials of Lovelock donated the 60-pound bar, and the Northwest Territory Mint in Dayton will melt the ingot to produce the medallions. Sales will help fund the NV150 events and the price will be determined by the commission that oversees them. The museum is at 600 N. Carson St. and is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday — Sunday. For more information call (775) 687-4810.

Inside Northern Nevada | AUGUST 2013 | 35 WINE & SPIRITS TASTING NOTES Trinchero Family Estates going strong for 65 years The WINE GUYS WINE WORDS 'On the Lees' Lees are the "gunk" that settles out of wine during the fermentation process. These dead yeast cells and other particles are carried to the bottom of the vat during the fining process. Usually, winemakers transfer their wine off these sediments, but occasionally they choose not to do so. Wines left to age "on the lees (or in French sur lie) are given a distinctly yeasty aroma and taste — which after aging gives additional flavor and character. Tom Marquardt and Patrick Darr Napa Cellars Zinfandel Napa Valley 2010 ($19). This is a clas- Company markets more than two dozen brands Family owned Trinchero Family Estates was founded in 1948 with the establishment of the Sutter Home brand. Today this wine making behemoth is the home of 27 more wine brands including Joel Gott, Sea Glass, the ubiquitous Ménage a` Trois as well as Napa Cellars and Folie a` Deux. We recently met with Napa Cellars and Folie a` Deux winemaker Joe Shirley to taste his wines and learn first-hand how he goes about creating his wines. Joe joined Trinchero in 1999 and has made the Folie a` Deux wines since 2003 and Napa Cellars wines since 2007. Joe feels he has a personal connection with the Napa Cellars wines, which are all made from Napa Valley fruit, because he grew up in Napa Valley and “has a personal under36 | Inside Northern Nevada | AUGUST 2013 standing of what Napa is good at." Joe said he believes “you can successfully grow any grape in the valley” which is 2 to 5 miles wide and about 20 miles long. Roughly 50 percent of Napa Valley is planted in cabernet sauvignon due to the expensive cost of suitable vineyard land. Joe said his wine making goals were to ”provide clean, balanced, not heavily stylized wines." He further commented that “the Napa Valley fruit is very good and is what should show”. We were very favorably impressed with the price value ratio of both of these brands, and believe consumers would be wise to seek them out. Following are our favorite Napa Cellars wines: Napa Cellars Chardonnay Napa Valley 2011 ($16).This very nice chardonnay is aged in 25 percent new French oak and displays a pear/apple nose and flavors with a hint of yeast from the 5 months of aging on the lees. Napa Cellars Merlot Napa Valley 2010 ($19). From the Oak Knoll area, this merlot has a nice cherry nose and flavors with a hint of chocolate. This wine creates a big impression in the mouth that is complex and pleasing. Finishes with a hint of oak. Delicious! sic well-priced Napa Valley zinfandel. Blended with 10 percent petite sirah, this wine offers a pleasant berry fruit nose with a blast of berry fruit in the mouth. Well balanced, this beauty would make a fine table wine for summer outdoor eating. Interestingly Joe explained that zinfandel grapes ripen unevenly and you can have raisins and green grapes on the same grape vines. We also tasted the Folie a` Deux wine that Joe makes from Sonoma County grapes and really liked the following selections: Folie a` Deux Chardonnay Russian River Valley Sonoma County 2011 ($16). Eighty percent barrel fermented and 20 percent stainless steel, this wine exhibits a lovely toast oak nose and abundant ripe tropical fruit flavors. Great value. Folie a` Deux Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2011 ($18). This wine shows an appealing ripe cherry nose and is very smooth and elegant in the mouth with nice spice and cherry notes and an alluring complexity. www.insidenorthernnevada.com Tips from the experts — Refreshing summer sippers The WINE GUYS Recommend Tom Marquardt and Patrick Darr With summer well under way, we are spending more time on our decks and boats. Many of you have celebrations and parties scheduled in the next couple of months. And, even if you don’t, sitting by the poolside with a glass of chilled white wine is appealing. Are we right? Hot temperatures call for simple wines that can be chilled without impacting their flavors. Thankfully, these wines don’t have to be expensive. If you prefer cold pastas, fruit plates, veggie trays, salads and the like, chilled white wines will do well. One wine you should consider is Soave in the Veneto region of northeast Italy. The Soave made in the plains is inexpensive, simple and not very complex. Those soaves made on hillsides are of better quality, but come at a higher price. These wines are called either Classico Superiore DOCG or Colli Scaligeri Superiore DOCG. The difference may be the amount of trebbiano toscano grapes that are n the blend - this is a variety not allowed in DOCG wines. The common grape variety used in all Soave is garganega. Italy produces more than Soave. Pinot grigio continues to grow in popularity and varieties like greco, arneis, verdicchio and vernaccia offer very crisp, refreshing wines for summer quaffing. Here are several white wines, including soaves, we recommend for backyard sipping: Cantina di Soave Re Midas Soave 2012 ($10). Great value, simple and fresh. Made entirely from garganega grapes. Cantini di Soave Rocca Sveva Soave Classico 2012 ($16). Nice dimension in this step-up from a common soave. Made entirely from garganega grapes, it sports apple notes and crisp acidity. Inama “Vin Soave” Soave Classico DOC 2011 ($15). Elegant profile with a flowery nose and mineral and almond notes mingled with apple flavors. Inama Vigneti di Foscarino 2010 ($24). The aromas are more assertive in this interesting soave. Honey and elder flower notes are followed by apple and mineral flavors. Aia Vecchia Vermentino Maremma Toscana IGT 2011 ($11). Composed entirely of vermentino www.insidenorthernnevada.com grapes, this refreshing wine has grass and grapefruit flavors and a medium body to make it a nice sipping wine. Terras Gauda O Rosal 2012 ($24). We loved the tantalizing flavors of this Spanish blend of albarino, loureiro and caino blanco grapes. From the Rias Baixas region that brings us the wonderful albarinos, this wine has generous peach and baked apple notes with a dash of pine and mineral. It would be great with crab and other seafood dishes. Atalon Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2012 ($20). This is a vibrant, crisp sauvignon blanc that would do well as an aperitif or with appetizers. Citrus notes abound with a dash of mineral. Waterstone Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2012 ($18). Lemon and tangerine flavors characterize this quaffable sauvignon blanc. Good balance and nice herbal notes keep it interesting. Stonestreet Terrace Ridge Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc 2011 ($35). This Bordeaux-style blend is a tantalizing spin on sauvignon blanc. Using mountain-grow grapes, it has a range of aromas and flavors. Fig, mango and lemongrass are just a few. WINE of the MONTH Barefoot Wine and Bubbly strives to make wine more fun Barefoot Wines don't take themselves too seriously — and it with that spirit that founders Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey set out to create a whole new type of winery. Barefoot Cellars was created in their home, and Bonnie's foot even shows up on all the labels.

Bonterra Sauvignon Blanc 2012 ($15). One of the early and most reliable organic wine producers in California, Bonterra continues to knock out a beautiful sauvignon blanc year after year. The fruit is drawn from Lake and Mendocino counties. A dash of muscat and chardonnay is added to the blend to give it some roundness and dimension. Grapefruit and melon notes highlight the wine. Benziger Family Winery Sauvignon Blanc 2012 ($15). Expect to find lots of bright citrus aromas and the classic grapefruit flavors in this wonderful North Coast sauvignon blanc.
