MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF JUDGES

Mark Nelson, Wilton Patrick O’Brien, Pleasanton Willie Pelote, Sr., Sacramento EX OFFICIO MEMBERS Senator Darrell Steinberg Senator Anthony Canella Assembly Member Roger Dickinson Assembly Member Susan Eggman PUBLISHER California State Fair MAGAZINE DESIGN AND PRODUCTION Larry Hausen RuffHaus Design Studio PRINTING Commerce Printing CALIFORNIA STATE FAIR 1600 Exposition Boulevard Sacramento, CA 95815 P.O. Box 15649 Sacramento, CA 95852

A

mong the many things that make the California State Fair Commercial Wine Competition special, is that, because of status, its size, and because it is, after all, part of the State Fair, we get a view of the California wine industry, and of California’s wine, like no one else. What we saw this year was a reminder, once again, that there is nowhere on Earth that can equal the diversity, the quality, the range of styles and successes, and simply the beauty of wine like California. And if you ask our judges, who are among the most respected in America, they’ll tell you that overall the wines they tasted this year may have been better than ever. In other words, there is a lot of great wine all over this state. That’s why it is always so exciting for us to be part of this competition, and to present the results in this magazine. We saw this year, as we often do, great wine coming from small family producers, from wineries that stock supermarket shelves, and from fabled wineries. And, we saw it at all price levels. Among the Best of California wines, meaning the individual varietals named the best in the state, there was a $10 Chardonnay, a $14 Merlot, and a tie between two $50-plus cabernets from Napa and Sonoma - which will end no arguments over which region is best. Equally impressive was the range of regions represented among the top awards, and among the Gold and Double Gold medals. This competition long ago did what few others do, it divided California by regions to show consumers and professionals how truly diverse, and remarkable, the wines all over this vast state. The State Fair Commercial wine competition is the oldest in the state. Its history goes back to the Gold Rush. It’s the rare competition focused only on California wines, and its resonance to wineries and wine consumers comes from its size and history, that emphasis on region, its promise of integrity, its insistence on excellence from wineries, and the demonstration by its judges – for decades – of fairness and professionalism. In short, a medal from this competition means something, to the wineries and the people who buy their wines. There’s something else special about this competition. More people from more places get to taste our Gold medal wines, because they’re featured in the Wine Garden during the entire run of the State Fair in July. And after all, that’s a huge the best the state has to offer. In 2014, we had 2,829 entries from 746 winery brands and awarded 2,068 medals, including 55 Double Golds, 214 Golds. This magazine is a guide for all wine lovers to those wines that are, indeed, the best California has to offer. We hope you enjoy them, and all of California’s extraordinary wine.

Cheers, Mike Dunne and Rick Kushman, Chief Judges

2014 GOLDEN STATE WINERY OF THE YEAR

Navarro Vineyards

A

t the June tasting for media and trade partners, where the top awards were given out for the 2014 California State Fair Commercial Wine Competition, the reaction among people in the industry was a simple one when it was announced that Navarro Vineyards was the Golden State Winery of the Year, – “Yes, of course,” many of them said. Navarro has long been one of California’s most beloved wineries, particularly among industry insiders, for the quality of its wines, for the focused, vibrant winemaking, and for the decency and earnest approach of owners Ted Bennett and his wife, Deborah Cahn, their children, and their longtime winemaker, Jim Klein. Bennett and Cahn founded Navarro in 1974 in the cool, wooded hills of Mendocino County’s then-largely untested Anderson Valley, a place they chose because they

believed it would be ideal for the Alsatian wines they loved, like gewürztraminer, pinot gris and riesling. Over the next 40 years, they constantly gained fans among wine drinkers and those in the business because of their environmental sensitivity, their dedication to Alsatian varietals (even as many Californians moved toward bigger, heavier wines), and, most of all, because of their wine which always managed to have both lightness and depth. “We’re in the perfect spot for the grapes we love,” Bennett said. “We get all the sun we need, and we get the cooling, the ocean breezes and the fog. Our grapes keep their character and their acidity, and they develop all their flavors.” Bennett said that after nearly 40 years, he’s still learning about his vineyards and his grapes, and that he keeps experimenting with trellising and clones and everything C A L I F O R N I A S TAT E FA I R

By Rick Kushman else he can think of. Over the years, he’s added non-Alsatian varietals like pinot noir, chardonnay, even cabernet sauvignon and zinfandel. “But we’ll always have a special place in our heart for the grapes and wines of Alsace,” Bennett said. Among the medals given Navarro by the commercial wine competition judges were three Double Golds, a Gold and five Silvers, and their top awards included the Best of Show Dessert Wine for the 2013 Anderson Valley Late Harvest Riesling, the Best of California Gewürztraminer for the 2013 Anderson Valley Late Harvest Gewürztraminer, and the Best of Region White for the 2013 Mendocino Pinot Blanc. “It’s gratifying when people like our wines as much as we do,” Bennett said. “We’re still learning, so I guess we’re going in the right direction.” !

2014 CALIFORNIA VINEYARD OF THE YEAR

Bechthold Vineyard By Rebecca Peters

Bechthold cinsault “really blew (his) mind.” For preserving the vineyard, for standing by cinsault even during its most uncertain days and for adding to the diversity of the state’s viticultural heritage, the Bechtholds are being recognized by California State Fair officials with the exposition’s Vineyard of the Year Award. This honor is awarded annually to a vineyard that yields grapes of exceptional character and has played a significant role in helping develop the state’s viticultural reputation. This is the first time that a Lodi vineyard has won the award in the five years it has been presented. The honor was bestowed by the State Fair’s Wine Advisory Task Force, consisting of winemakers, wine writers, wine teachers and other volunteer members of the state’s wine trade. Lodi’s eldest surviving vines initially were planted by Joseph Spenker in what now is the Mokelumne River American Viticultural Area, a sub-appellation of the Lodi American Viticultural Area.

TEN

years ago, Bechthold Vineyard was widely regarded as just another plot of grapes in Lodi, without any particular distinction other than its age. It was planted in 1865 or 1866, making it Lodi’s oldest vineyard. But a decade ago, it simply wasn’t yielding grapes highly esteemed by either vintners or wine enthusiasts. Even its owners, Wanda Bechthold and her husband Al, who died earlier this year, talked of ripping out the vines because they were not profitable enough to continue to harvest. At that time, the vineyard was seen primarily as a source of grapes for home winemakers who weren’t particularly picky about variety. At Bechthold, the variety was black malvoise, an obscure synonym for cinsault, a black grape respected for its softening attributes in the blended wines of southern France, but virtually unknown elsewhere. Thus, grapes from Bechthold Vineyard were being shipped in 40-pound lug boxes to mostly home winemakers for the equivalent of just $200 a ton. With labor costs about to exceed revenues, the Bechtholds began to ponder replacing the black malvoise with a more profitable variety. But then, Kay Bogart, an outreach specialist with the Department of Viticulture & Enology at the University of California, Davis, saw veiled potential in the forgotten vines. She gathered samples from the Bechthold vineyard and delivered them to Dr. Andrew 24

Walker, plant geneticist at UC Davis. He identified the samples by their more historic and popular name, cinsault, and virtually overnight the Bechthold Vineyard began to generate buzz among several of California’s more adventurous winemakers. “Bechthold Vineyard defies what a lot of people think of Lodi wines. It makes a red wine that is not heavy, not high in alcohol, but rather light and refreshing. It reminds me of Grand Crus Beaujolais in some ways – it has structure, but it also has high drinkability, and its aromatics are intoxicating, extremely perfumed,” renowned winemaker Tegan Passalacqua of Turley Wine Cellars says to Lodi Wine website blogger, and local wine expert, Randy Caparoso. Passalacqua has been using Bechthold’s cinsault – pronounced san-so – for several vintages to make a stand-alone varietal that is atypically light and buoyant for the Turley portfolio, which generally runs to dense and brawny zinfandels. His cinsault, on the other hand, is charming for its fresh and fruity smell, its vivacious spiciness, its buoyancy and its tangy finish. Passalacqua isn’t alone in his admiration for the Bechthold cinsault. Today, specific portions of the vineyard are reserved for specific wineries, the names of which hang high on signs at the heads of particular rows. In addition to Turley, buyers include The Scholium Project, Jessie’s Grove, McCay Cellars, Two Shepherds, Michael David and Bonny Doon, whose president, Randall Grahm, is quoted by Caparoso affirming that the quality of the C A L I F O R N I A S TAT E FA I R

The 25-acre vineyard, farmed organically for the past decade, remains in the Bechthold family, but since 2008 has been managed by Kevin Phillips, of Phillips Farms, who attributes the vineyard’s longevity to its strong resistance to disease and root pests, and to the fact that it remains economically viable despite the humble grape planted. Phillips credits the vineyard’s born-again popularity to winemakers who haven’t been “scared to promote an obscure and almost obsolete varietal,” making it a valued selection in fine wine shops and restaurants. Demand for the vineyard’s cinsault has risen so sharply in recent years that even Wanda Bechthold’s son, Lodi vintner Greg Burns, is on the wait list to buy grapes. “We own the vineyard, but we can no longer get any fruit from it for ourselves!” jokes Burns, proprietor of Jessie’s Grove Winery near the vineyard. Nevertheless, he has made cinsault from the vineyard for three vintages, the latest of which, from last fall’s harvest, is aging in barrels. Burns says, “With each of the wineries that produce from this vineyard you can find common threads mixed in with different results. All produce a smoothness that comes off silky. The fruit is consistently vibrant. Tannins are smooth and moderate. This is a very user friendly wine that gets better in glass the longer you leave it open.” The same apparently could be said of the vineyard – the longer it’s around, the more cherished it becomes. !

BEST OF SHOW RED STERLING VINEYARDS 2010 NAPA VALLEY PLATINUM CABERNET SAUVIGNON By Mike Dunne

The Sterling Vineyards 2010 Napa Valley Platinum Cabernet Sauvignon ($55) - the Best of Show Red Wine at the 2014 California State Fair Commercial Wine Competition - is proof that with attention and precision an exquisitely complete wine can be sculpted from even a difficult growing year. “It’s a handmade labor of love,” says Harry Hansen, Sterling’s director of winemaking, as he checks off all the steps that he and his colleagues took to draw such a lush and layered cabernet sauvignon from one of the cooler Napa Valley vintages ever recorded, which extended the maturing of the fruit so long that a late-October rain threatened to ruin grapes slow to ripen. “The vintage was a little bit cool, but we have

some tools to help us cope with less-than-ideal vintages and vineyards,” Hansen says. “The most important is that we hand sort clusters. Everything is hand sorted. That makes a huge difference by assuring that any sort of defect does not go into fermentation.” The choosing of just the most pristine fruit to be fermented isn’t even the first step toward assuring a masterful cabernet sauvignon. Hansen also had the advantage of selecting grapes from vineyards in three distinct sub-appellations of Napa Valley - the Rutherford district for the red-cherry fruit, softer tannins, rose-petal aromatics and notes of martini olive in the wine, the Yountville area for the blackberry and blueberry threads in the blend, and Diamond Mountain for the wine’s CALIFORNIA WINE 2014

tannic spine and its savory notes of sage and brambles. Each area contributed about a third of the wine’s composition. Beyond that, juice from the three areas was subjected to a variety of fermentations - stainlesssteel tanks, small fermenters and oak barrels - with the final blend drawn from the most expressive lots. A dollop of petit verdot - 3.5 percent of the final composition - was added to brighten the color and enhance the wine’s silken texture. The culmination not only is the State Fair’s top red wine but a wine so versatile that it can accompany dinner entrees ranging from prime rib and lamb shanks to pastas with a vegetarian tomato-based sauce. ! 27


BEST OF SHOW WHITE CAROL SHELTON WINES 2012 PASO ROBLES COQUILLE BLANC By Mike Dunne

IN

one of the odder twists to the 2014 California State Fair Commercial Wine Competition, a winemaker celebrated for husky interpretations of zinfandel out of Sonoma and Mendocino counties walked off with high honors for an easy-going white wine made with grapes grown in San Luis Obispo County. Carol Shelton took home the Golden Bear for Best of Show White Wine with her graceful interpretation of a blend made with grape varieties most closely identified with France’s Rhone Valley- her Carol Shelton Wines 2012 Paso Robles Coquille Blanc ($24). The wine is seamless, layered and balanced, its mix of grenache blanc (40 percent), roussanne (25 percent), viognier (20 percent) and marsanne (15 percent) delivering a floral fruitiness underscored with a creamy texture from being fermented in oak barrels and stirred

28

weekly on its lees for seven months. Shelton’s first version of the wine was made with the vintage of 2008 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her eponymous winery and to add a white wine to her portfolio. Earlier in her winemaking career at Windsor Vineyards in Sonoma County she made a series of popular chardonnays and was being pressured by fans to again take on the varietal. Shelton, however, had her fill of chardonnay. For about four years she scouted the state for grapes she could squeeze into her “dream wine,” a thoughtful and precise blend of Rhone Valley varieties. She found the fruit in the home vineyard of Paso Robles farm-labor contractor Juan Nevarez. The wine is a labor of love both for the style and for her faith that it can develop an enthusiastic following. Her painstaking approach to make the wine requires that she C A L I F O R N I A S TAT E FA I R

drive from her home to Paso Robles several times a year - five hours each way - particularly as harvest gets under way. “Those varieties don’t ripen at the same time. Roussanne and Viognier ripen toward the end of August usually, and grenache blanc ripens three weeks to a month later,” Shelton says. Then it costs her $1,200 to get each load to her Santa Rosa cellar. “But it’s my dream wine. I’ve always wanted to make something like this.” The name Coquille - pronounced “ko-keel” - is French for shell, and was inspired in part by the scallop shells on the Shelton family coat of arms. By no accident, the wine also has the structure, texture and zip to complement its namesake shellfish dish, as well as chicken or pork dishes with buttery and creamy sauces, and lemongrass soup with rock shrimp, the recipe for which can be found on her website, www.carolshelton.com. !


BEST OF SHOW PINK PEDRONCELLI WINERY 2013 SONOMA COUNTY DRY CREEK VALLEY DRY ROSÉ OF ZINFANDEL By Mike Dunne

John Pedroncelli made his first pink wine from the black grape zinfandel 60 vintages ago. He’s still at it as he oversees all the winemaking at his family’s Pedroncelli Winery in Geyserville in northern Sonoma County.

it’s more sharply refreshing in the finish.

He won his first California State Fair medal for the wine in the 1950s, but not until this year, with the Pedroncelli Winery 2013 Sonoma County Dry Creek Valley Dry Rosé of Zinfandel ($12), did the winery pick up one of the exposition’s top awards for the style - the 2014 California State Fair Best of Show Pink Wine.

Then she took two distinct approaches to working with juice squeezed from the grapes.

“We met our goal,” says Pedroncelli’s assistant winemaker, Montse Reece, who had the handson responsibility for making the wine. That goal was to use zinfandel for a seriously flavorful, balanced and crisp rose. In contrast to the customary pink wine made from zinfandel, the Pedroncelli is packed with more clean berry flavor, it’s a bit heftier in body, it’s spicier, and

Reece met her goal with the wine by first drawing fruit from two prime vineyards, including Pedroncelli’s historic home estate, long the rocky incubator for zinfandel of resonating character.

Half the wine was made with zinfandel that was allowed to ripen fully, and then she handled it with the saigne technique, which involves bleeding juice from freshly crushed grapes before it picks up much color from the black skins. The other half was made with zinfandel that had been picked not as ripe and then pressed directly. The saigne method gave her the jammy strawberry flavor she sought, while the directpress technique of the less-ripe grapes gave her the snappy acidity and restrained alcohol she wanted in the finished wine. CALIFORNIA WINE 2014

“In the past we used more saigne wine, but the acids were low, so we used a higher percentage of press (with the 2013) for the higher acid. Zinfandel doesn’t have too much acid to begin with, but we got all the acid we needed naturally,” Reece says. “We are so grateful that the wine won this award,” she adds. “This wine is not easy to make. You have to look at every detail. And we don’t move that wine at all. Any oxygen is the enemy of this wine. It’s like a baby, you have to be so careful with it. The price point doesn’t tell the whole story of this wine.” For the final days of summer, the wine’s bright fruit flavor, snappy finish and low alcohol make it the ideal evening sipper in patio or on deck. !

BEST OF SHOW SPARKLING McFADDEN VINEYARD MENDOCINO COUNTY POTTER VALLEY CUVÉE BRUT By Mike Dunne

California’s larger sparkling-wine houses Domaine Chandon, Gloria Ferrer, Roederer, Korbel - tend to gather most of the critical and popular acclaim, including gold medals and other high honors on the wine competition circuit. Thus, something of an upset occurred at the 2014 California State Fair Commercial Wine Competition in June when an obscure bubbly with little production was voted the Best of Show Sparkling Wine. It’s the McFadden Vineyard Mendocino County Potter Valley Cuvee Brut ($25), which won over judges for its alluring balance of fresh rich fruit, feathery texture and stimulating acidity. Just 323 cases were made. The wine is a 50/50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir grown at Guinness McFadden’s diverse ranch in the northeastern reaches of Mendocino County, a 500-acre spread that he’s been farming since 1970. Up to now, his operation may have 30

been better known for its dried herb blends, garlic braids, wild rice and beef than its wine, which he has been putting up under his own label for just the past decade.

With a hydroelectric power plant and 300 solar panels he’s installed on his property, he provides not only his farm but much of Potter Valley with independent energy.

The prospect of growing grapes, however, is what drew McFadden to Mendocino County after he put in a stint at the Stanford University business school. He initially scouted Napa Valley, but even in the late 1960s choice vineyard land was getting scarce and pricey, so he drifted north.

McFadden and his marketing director, John Cesano, are delighted with the State Fair award, but they’re saying that sparkling-wine enthusiasts haven’t seen anything yet. This summer they are to release a rose version of the Cuvee Brut that is to carry more color, structure and richness than the award-winning bubbly, in large part because it will have a higher proportion of pinot noir.

Though Guinness grew up in New York City and spent nine years in the U.S. Navy, from which he won a Bronze Star while operating a river boat in Vietnam, he’s taken to farming industriously and progressively. His organically-farmed ranch includes 160 acres of grapes. The fruit he doesn’t sell to other producers he keeps for himself to produce 8,000 cases of wine annually. For 27 years he’s been selling grapes to Napa Valley’s Chateau Montelena for its highly regarded riesling. C A L I F O R N I A S TAT E FA I R

“It’s the best bubbly we’ve ever made,” says Cesano, noting that compared with the Cuvee Brut it is far ahead in developing the kind of gorgeous expressiveness that seduced State Fair judges. That could be another way of saying it likely will be sold out before next year’s competition, allowing Gloria Ferrer, Korbel and company to resume their winning ways. !


BEST OF SHOW DESSERT NAVARRO VINEYARDS 2013 ANDERSON VALLEY LATE HARVEST CLUSTER SELECT RIESLING By Rick Kushman

IT

’s hard to imagine a better place in California to make late harvest riesling than the cool, moist slopes of Anderson Valley. That’s certainly the thinking at Navarro Vineyards, where they’ve been producing some of the state’s most highly decorated late harvest whites for decades. This year, Navarro’s 2013 Anderson Valley Late Harvest Cluster Select Riesling was named the 2014 Best of Show Dessert wine, and one taste will convince anyone why. It is loaded with rich stone fruit aromas and flavors and layers of honey and ripe pineapple that come from grapes with botrytis, otherwise known as noble rot. And as intoxicating as that can be, the riesling is still bouncy and almost ethereal in its lightness. It’s a dessert wine that will not wear anyone out, and it could easily match up with a number of main course dishes, especially with the Asian palate of flavors.

Jim Klein, the longtime winemaker at Navarro, said the Anderson Valley vineyards have an ideal combination for those noble rot wines – there’s cool weather and breezes so the late-harvesting grapes keep some snap of acidity, and there’s the late season fog and dampness so the botrytis will develop.

late harvest wines.” !

“The fog can be so thick that everything is dripping in the morning,” Klein said. “But we still get the breezes so the botrytis develops the best way possible. It’s just right for what we do.” Ted Bennett, who owns Navarro with his wife, Deborah Cahn, said they realized when they founded their winery 40 years ago how much Anderson Valley is influenced by the Pacific winds and fog, which floats over the one mountain range and comes down from the top of the valley that opens to the ocean. “The ocean coolness and moisture does so much for all our vines,” Bennett said, “but we think we really have a special place for those CALIFORNIA WINE 2014

BEST VALUE WINE FETZER VINEYARDS 2011 VALLEY OAKS MOSCATO By Rick Kushman

T

he 2014 Best Value Wine is precisely what anyone would hope for – it is easy to find, comes from an environmentally responsible producer, is a bulls eye example of the varietal, and, most of all, is lively, fresh, and tastes like it should cost more than its $7 price. That wine is Fetzer Vineyards’ 2011 Valley Oaks California Moscato, and it certainly hits all the buttons of a good moscato. It’s a bit spicy, just a touch sweet, has a racy structure that makes it light and helps it finish clean, and it’s filled with the smells of flowers and flavors of peaches and apricots. 32

Fetzer, based in Hopland in Mendocino County, only recently re-launched its line of moscatos after Chilean wine company Concha y Toro bought the winery in 2011. But two things did not change with the sale. Fetzer has kept its decades-old commitment to environmental sensitivity and sustainability – the winery launched its program of completely sustainable vineyards in 1984 – and winemaker Dennis Martin, who has been there since 1985, still oversees all the wines with a light, deft touch. Martin, who’s long been considered one of the more genial of California winemakers, has C A L I F O R N I A S TAT E FA I R

often spoken both privately and to the press about the challenges of what he’s called keeping a consistency in quality and style in Fetzer’s everyday wines. In short, he puts a great deal of effort into wines aimed at every wine drinker – most would qualify as great Value Wines – and through the years has succeeded admirably. For this year, the 2011 Valley Oaks California Moscato earned a Double Gold and 98 points as well the Best Value Wine trophy, and for wine drinkers, it offers a high-quality wine with the bright taste of summer. !


BEST VARIETALS OF CALIFORNIA & BEST OF REGION WINE WINNERS In early June, wine experts from across North America gathered in Sacramento to taste and judge 2,829 entries from 746 winery brands and awarded 2,068 medals, including 55 Double Golds, 214 Golds. Our list of top wines is a litany of California’s legendary regions, places that are some of the most celebrated winemaking spots on the planet: Napa, Sonoma, Atlas Peak, Anderson Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Monterey and Russian River Valley. Just as much, there were top wines from California’s next generation of stars, including Paso Robles, Lodi, Clarksburg, Potter Valley, Temecula Valley, and across the foothills from El Dorado, Amador and Placer counties.

MICROWINERY BEST OF SHOW RED LA CHERTOSA OLD WORLD WINES 2012 AMADOR COUNTY RESERVE ZINFANDEL “FRA PAOLO” By Doug Noble

“My grandfather learned to make wines in the ‘Old-World’ style at La Chertosa Monastery in Tuscany in the 1880s,” said Samuel Sebastiani, owner of La Chertosa Old World Wines. “In 1893 he came to Sonoma and, a decade later, founded Sebastiani winery.”

Sebastiani gives a lot of credit for his wines to his long-time friend and enologist Derek Irwin. “Derek and I have worked together so long that when we are blending I can say, ‘This is like the 1999 vintage,’ and he will immediately understand,” Sebastiani remarked.

“Sam” Sebastiani started working at that family winery in the 1940s and says he learned from his grandfather and the “old Italians at the winery” how to make wines and that you need the best soils and vineyards to produce “Old-World” style wines. “Red soils, like in Tuscany,” they told him.

This year’s award winning zinfandel wine was first fermented in separate batches from four different sites in Amador County’s Shake Ridge vineyard, which has the necessary red soils. “The 2012 vintage contains zinfandel from all four sites,” added Sebastiani, “along with a small amount of petite sirah to add a floral note and a very small amount of malbec for backbone.”

After leaving Sebastiani winery in 1985 he opened Viansa winery, which he sold in 2004.

In honor of his heritage and “Old-World,” Italian-style wine making techniques, in 2002 the President of Italy bestowed knighthood on Sam Sebastiani. !

“I really wanted to make great wine in small batches and enjoy the business more,” said Sebastiani, “so I opened La Chertosa Wines. It is named after the monastery where my grandfather learned his trade.” 84

MICROWINERY BEST OF SHOW WHITE D'ARTAGNAN VINEYARDS GUARDSMAN WINES, 2013 LODI ALBARIÑO By Doug Noble

“I always had a dream to have a vineyard and a winery,” said Bob Reitz, who, with his wife, Bonnie, own this family business. “We started it after our kids left. It is sort of our ‘child replacement,’ although they come back and help a lot.” It was Bonnie who came up with the name for the vineyard and winery. She is a voracious reader who loves Alexandre Dumas’ work. She felt the D’Artagnan name was perfect because they were being adventurous, bold and romantic. “The romantic especially fit well because we’ve been happily married for 33 years,” said Reitz. Before they planted grapes on their five acre homesite overlooking Folsom Lake, they did their homework. “We wanted to make the most magnificent wines in the world, so we hired the best consultants, oriented the vines properly and selected the best clones of malbec,

tempranillo and zinfandel that we could find for each block,” said Reitz. “It was expensive, but worth it. It shows in our wines.” Their son Brandon is the winemaker and he and Reitz sample the ripening grapes daily and pick them at their peak of flavor, not necessarily by brix. Thus, many of their wines are lower in alcohol. “Brandon had made wine from albriño grapes before and loved it,” said Reitz. “When we decided to make this award winning wine, we sourced the grapes from the Vista Luna vineyard in Lodi. The grapes were beautiful, the crush went wonderfully, we fermented in neutral French oak barrels and we ended up with a spectacular, clean, smooth wine.” D’Artagnan Vineyards has a tasting room at 815 Sutter St. in Old Town Folsom. They can be reached at (916) 936-9040. !

MICROWINERY BEST OF SHOW RED

BLEATING HEART CHEESE ARTISAN CHEESE COMPANY SWEEPS THIS YEAR’S STATE FAIR COMPETITION By Kem Pence the time, there were only two sheep dairies in her area. That changed following a wild, winter drive to Wisconsin with her sister, in a huge truck purchased on Craigslist. She returned with ten pregnant ewes, the beginning of her own flock and a partnership in the fifth sheep dairy in California. Seana started making cheese using neighboring creameries, renting facilities and equipment which begins the story of Fat Bottom Girl. While helping a friend at her dairy, Seana had taken some cheeses out of their forms to be flipped but left them out so she could assist with the afternoon milking. When she returned, she saw the cheeses had bulged at the bottom under their own weight creating a whimsical, bulbous shape. It was a mistake but one that made her laugh, so she worked to develop a system to replicate it. With some added inspiration from the song by Queen, Fat Bottom Girl was born. Seana and Dave wanted to make cheese year round, not just six months of the year when sheep’s milk was available. They were fortunate to get the opportunity to renovate the long shuttered milk room on the 1,000 acre Thornton Ranch and build their own creamery. With Dave acting as designer and contractor, the historic building was rebuilt and the couple purchased a new 200 gallon stainless steel cheese vat.

S

eana Doughty was destined to become a world class cheese maker. A selfproclaimed nerd with an acute interest in good food, she read cookbooks and scientific journals at an early age. As a pre-med student, she developed a background in chemistry and later earned a degree in sociology with a minor in biology. This southern California girl found herself stuck in a corporate job as a research administrator but soon chucked the corporate life and landed a job at a cheese shop in San Diego, where her interest in cheese, especially 88

sheep’s milk cheese, was further developed. She knew then she had to make cheese, not just sell it. Pursuing this dream has been a great adventure with trips to cheese regions of Europe, classes at UC Davis and elsewhere, and a move to northern California. Determination and hard work has made Seana a legend in the cheese world and brought her and husband Dave Dalton into the limelight. One of Seana’s first adventures was remedying the scarcity of available sheep’s milk which is seasonal. Sheep produce far less milk than cows and for only six months out of the year and at C A L I F O R N I A S TAT E FA I R

They teamed up with Marissa Thornton, a sixth generation dairy farmer, who was able to reopen her family’s historic dairy and create Marshall Home Ranch and Dairy on the same property. With Kickstarter funding Marissa purchased ten jersey cows guaranteeing a steady supply of Jersey cow milk for Bleating Heart that reflects the unique taste of the air, soils and grasses right beside the creamery. Moolicious Blue is one of Bleating Heart’s first cow milk cheeses, an adaptation of their award-winning recipe for Ewelicious Blue sheep milk cheese. Using a different type of milk results in a very different cheese, even when the same procedure is followed. The natural-rinded Moolicious has a rich, firm


texture and subtle flavors of grass and earth. In a recent interview Seana expressed, “My mode of operation boils down to American innovation and European inspiration. I first have a concept in my head, and then I try to execute it. I have this thing/talent/skill where I can smell and taste something in my mind, and I use this with my cheese making. I basically make cheese that I want to eat, getting inspiration from various places, with a firm commitment to not copying others.” Another of Seana’s delicious inspirations is Funky Bleats, a funktacular blend of raw sheep and goat milk. When Seana was asked if she would like to buy some excess milk from a local goat dairy, she didn’t hesitate for a second. Seana devised a recipe in her head overnight remembering some mixed milk cheeses she had tasted in Corsica. She produced a washed rind cheese that is truly original. Funky Bleats is great with light red, rosé or dry white wine. Sparkling wines and robust malty beers are a good match as well.

Funky Bleats received a 95 point Gold medal and Best of Division, American Originals award. Cheese judge Les Wood said, “Overall a Great cheese!” The fourth cheese entered in this year’s competition was Goldette Tommette, a semifirm wheel with a lightly washed rind. This cheese is a loose adaption of the award winning recipe for Fat Bottom Girl sheep cheese. Made from rich raw Jersey milk, this cheese received a 91 point Silver medal. Seana’s dedication and love for her craft are obvious in the wonderful cheeses she produces. This year Bleating Heart Cheese swept the 2014 California State Fair Cheese Competition with two Best of Show, three Best of Division and a Silver Award. Cheese lovers are encouraged to try her unique creations and we hope Seana continues to be inspired, so we can enjoy the fruits of her labors. !

In full production now, Bleating Heart hopes to produce between 20,000 and 30,000 pounds of cheese this year. They have come a long way in five years making only 300 pounds the first year. At the 2014 Cheese Competition at the California State Fair, Bleating Heart’s, now signature cheese, Fat Bottom Girl was awarded Best of Show and Best of Division Semi-hard cheese in the “Other Udder” category (which includes goat, sheep and water buffalo milk). The judges awarded Fat Bottom Girl 100 points, the highest score possible. About Fat Bottom Girl, cheese judge Sacha Laurin wrote: “Outstanding cheese. Nutty. Complex depth of flavor. Stunning aesthetics. This is worthy of Best of Show. Cannot be faulted.” Kristi Bachman agreed: “Delicious, complex meaty, animally flavors. I want to keep eating all of it. Very well made.” Chief Judge Darrell Corti proclaimed, “Bloody splendid cheese!” Moolicious Blue won Best of Show and Best of Division, Semi-soft cheese in the cow milk category with 96 points. Janet Fletcher writes: “I love everything about this cheese: its hand-made appearance, generous aroma, unusual texture, appropriate salt level, impeccable balance and long finish.” CALIFORNIA WINE 2014
