Shooting the West
Check out these highlights from the Shooting the West Schedule:
March 4 Daylong workshop The Voodoo that we Doodoo Instructor Mark Turney introduces photographers to the wonderful quirks of the Holga camera.
By Lorraine Giurlani, Special to INN
nterested in photography? Shooting the West, Winnemucca's unique photo symposium is scheduled for March 4-9. Begun in 1988, Shooting the West has featured top flight photographers, writers, instructors, artists, and adventurers. Over the years, many of the biggest names in photography have shared techniques and images with three hundred enthusiastic participants. Diversity has become one of the hallmarks of the event. STW has showcased distinguished guests from the fields of photojournalism, photo-documentary, commercial, portraiture, travel, nature, wildlife, sports, fine art, and National Geographic magazine. Past photographers showcased include the late Galen Rowell, Adam Jahiel, nature specialist Franz Lanting, William Allard Allen, writer Linda Hussa, Sam Abell, Western photographer Barbara Van Cleve and many others. Workshops and programs offer photographers the opportunity to hone their skills, listen to or speak with skilled professionals, display their art, consult photo equipment vendors, schedule a on-on-one critique, and network with others of similar interests. The main symposium will be held Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. M.D. Welch begins the symposium with a presentation on the modern photographer’s greatest challenge: preserving and organizing his photo collection, much of which is often in digital form. Welch is a professional photographer and video director/producer who has taught at the University of Nevada, Reno and TMCC. How does a photographer know which of his photos are marketable, which will have impact and can attract buyers? Mark Turney and Andrew Farewell will address this challenge – what they term “educating the photographer’s vision” – to help photographers learn to objectively evaluate their images. Turney’s background includes being Media General’s Photo Bureau Chief in Washington DC for over 150 magazines. Farewell’s original photographs have 6 | Inside Northern Nevada | March 2014

appeared in national newspapers and magazines and are in the collection of the Smithsonian. Other symposium guests will speak on effectively using photography in the various social media such as Facebook; photo opportunities in Nevada; how to express your passions through photography; and a look at Winnemucca through historical and modern photographs. Shooting the West is also very “participant inclusive.” Give It Your Best Shot is a juried show featuring the work of registered participants. Two prints can be entered in the contest and they will be exhibited in East Hall of the Convention Center. In the last several years workshops have been offered in the days preceding the symposium. Beginning photographers can choose among several workshops to learn how to use a digital camera. More instruction is available through a one-on-one meeting with a professional photography. Sessions on photo editing software are available. A fun and unique workshop features the Holga, an inexpensive Chinese camera which has developed a cult following. Everyone will be outfitted with the Holga - which they keep - and a single, solitary roll of film. The group will take photos and learn to make images from that roll of film. True to the spirit of Shooting the West, these classes represent terrific value. Similar workshops through university and/or private programs are much more expensive — but they fill up fast , so don't delay in signing up! All exhibits, Vendor’s Alley, the Presenter’s Galley, and the Give it Your Best Shot exhibit are open to the public Friday - Saturday 8 am to 5 pm. The community is also encouraged to attend the Open House/Static Display at the Winnemucca Municipal Airport on Sunday, March 9th from 9 am to 4 pm. An attendee does not have to sign up for the entire symposium but can choose one or two workshop, segments or a whole day. Student discounts are available.

Texture and an eye for detail hallark of McFadden's work Fallon art gallery shows work by Rita McFadden in March
ita McFadden and the combined talents of Kerry Rice and Carol Lloyd are the Rising Sun Gallery and Art Studios' featured artist and artisans for the month of March. Award winning oil artist, Rita McFadden says she discovered her artistic talent early in grammar school. She continued to nurture her artistic talent through high school and community college. Her interest is primarily in capturing the likeness of animals but has recently begun painting landscapes. She uses intricate brush strokes that leave the viewer to almost feel the roughness of the elephant's hide to the softness of the extremely fine vanes of an owl's feather. She has received a number of awards for her work. Rita has previously shown her work at various Nevada galleries; e.g., The Hilton, MGM, Joyce's Antiques and enjoys a long-time affiliation
with Nevada Artists' Association and is a resident of Carson City.
KC Birdfeeders are featured artisans K, for Kerry, and C, for Carol, KC Birdfeeders began as a joint fun little project that grew into a fun big project of building birdfeeders out of recycled dishes. The friends scoured thrift stores looking for unique dishes, found the best deals on beads and other hardware and tweaked the whole process to Lemon Picnic by KC Birdfeeders
engineering perfection. The result is attractive, whimsical, and unique birdfeeders that will withstand gale force winds. The birds love them... especially when they are full of seeds. For further information about the gallery, other artists and artisans currently showing their work or classes, call Patricia Sammons, Managing Director at 775-2944135 or at facebook.com/risingsunartgallery. The Rising Sun Gallery is located at 203 South Maine Street in Fallon and open Monday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Insideâ€ˆNorthern Nevada |â€ˆMarch 2014| 7
Lowry High School presents 'Pinocchio and His Father' 'The transforming power of a father’s love' WINNEMUCCA By Joyce Sheen, INN
n March 17,18, and 19, Lowry High School’s drama and stagecraft magic-makers will present “Pinocchio & His Father” by Will Ledesma. “Once upon a time, there was...a block of wood,” begins the synopsis by the play’s publishers, Brooklyn Publishers, LLC. “From this most unusual beginning unfolds a whirlwind tale of fantasy and family as young Pinocchio, the most famous puppet of all time, dreams of doing the right things and becoming a real boy. Temptation is never far, and soon the well-meaning puppet is in trouble again. All of your favorite Pinocchio moments are here (as well as a few you may have forgotten about) in this clever, engaging, and refreshingly traditional take on Collodi’s masterpiece. Pinocchio and His Father is a touching story of the impertinence of youth, the adventurous spirit of boyhood, and the

It takes a lot of hands to put together scenes from another place and time. “Pinocchio and His Father” will be performed March 17-19 by the drama and stage craft magic-makers.

transforming power of a father’s love.” “We chose this play because it’s such an interesting take on a classic; the addition of
The Blue Fairy brings a magical element to the classic Italian story of Pinocchio. This is not the Disney version,” drama and stagecraft teacher Corrine James said. That’s one of the things the actors and stagecraft crew like about the play. “It’s looney and then some,” according to Liam Gallups and Marcos Duran said “Pinocchio and His Father” is funny, and also touching.” The play has 11 different scenes, with 16 total scene changes and will be a fun challenge for the stagecraft crew, and the actors to keep things fluid. But Student Carly Bell said they’re up to the challenge and their teamwork for the play is working really well. Another reason for the choice: the play has enough parts for 20 students, and even though James said some of the parts are pretty small, they offer the opportunity for students to get stage experience. Stagecraft expands the opportunity for involvement with job titles like: special projects, costume design and production, artist, mastermind, lights, music man, curtains, rocket man, dog, magic maker, stage designer, and money maker. Come enjoy Lowry drama and stagecraft’s performance of “Pinocchio and His Father” March 17,18, and 19. All performances begin at 7 p.m. in the Lowry High School auditorium; doors open at 6:30 p.m. for seating. Cost of admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students. F

ECAC Gallery presents Ron Arthaud and Carmen Gage Ackert in March
watercolors, pen and ink, 3-D sculpture, and photography, Gage continually seeks new forms of artistic creation. Her subject of choice is figure studies in which she finds endless opportunity for capturing expression.
oming up in March, the Elko County Art Club Gallery is pleased to present our featured guest artist Ron Arthaud, of Tuscarora, Nev. Ron Arthaud was born and raised near St. Paul, Minn., and attended the University of Minnesota in Duluth and received a BFA in 1984. From 1984 – 1987, he was a fulltime student at Atelier LeSueur, a small classical realist art school in the Minneapolis area. There he studied under Richard Lack among others, and focused on learning how to “see,” painting and drawing directly from nature, models, and still-lives. Today Ron and his family live year round in Tuscarora, making art and restoring their home. In Ron’s words, “I love to see the abstract in nature, squinting and closing one eye, imagining a painting. My paintings are often about capturing the beauty in ordinary discarded things: Rusty cars, a broken down fence, the shadows cast from old pickets in the snow.” For more information on Ron please visit his website at www.ron-arthaud.com or e-mail at paintings@ ron-arthaud.com. The Gallery is also proud to present our artist of the month, Carmen Gage Ackert. Ackert has been creating art since she was very young,

In June of 2011, the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars and the Department of Education named Conrad a Presidential Scholar in the Arts, and the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts awarded him a YoungArts gold medal in music. Later that year, Conrad was named a Gilmore Young Artist, an honor awarded every two years highlighting the most promising American pianists of the new generation.

'80s frontman Geoff Tate brings his 'original voice' Queensryche to Wendover
lthough they were initially grouped with the legions of pop-metal bands that dominated the American heavy metal scene of the ‘80s, Queensrÿche were one of the most distinctive bands of the era. Where their contemporaries built on the legacy of Van Halen, Aerosmith, and Kiss, Queensrÿche constructed a progressive form of heavy metal that drew equally from the guitar pyrotechnics of postVan Halen metal and ‘70s art rock, most notably Pink Floyd and Queen. On March 8 Queensryche Starring Geoff Tate the Original voice will perform at the Wendover Peppermill for an 8 p.m. performance. Tickets start at $10. During the early ‘80s, Queensryche built their
following by opening for hard rock acts as diverse as Bon Jovi and Metallica. Their albums -- 1984’s The Warning and 1986’s Rage for Order -- sold respectably, with the latter reaching number 47 on the U.S. charts. Rage for Order also demonstrated a flowering of progressive rock influences, an idea that would reach its fruition with 1988’s Operation: Mindcrime. Boasting orchestral arrangements from Michael Kamen, the album was Queensrÿche’s most ambitious and focused effort to date, earning both positive reviews and strong sales. Operation: Mindcrime stayed on the American charts for a year, selling over a million copies during its run.

The Gothard Sisters have recorded six CDs, beginning with their Christmas release in 2006 ("And to www.insidenorthernnevada.com

Rita, trapped in a 40-year loveless marriage, now thinks of the future without Ben and plans to re-decorate. Lisa is an alcoholic who has left an abusive marriage; Curtis, homosexual, has had little to do with his father, who is homophobic.

he Battle Mountain Cookhouse Museum re-opened Feb. 5 after a two-month winter break.
Not only will the displays be rearranged but two new displays will be set up by the end of March, said Museum Director Lori Price, who is prestident of the Lander County Historical Society. The family of Dr. Charles Hyde, who was born in 1904, donated his brown leather jacket and two of his black medical bags with the supplies in them. These will be part of a healthcare display that will also include hospital tools. A second exhibit will feature Welch’s Battle Mountain Dairy, which was open from the early 1930s until 1947. It was located on East Fifth Street and then relocated one mile 14 | Inside Northern Nevada | March 2014
north of Battle Mountain, Price said. Items to be featured include a milking machine, milk bottles, a cream separator and milk pails. Sisters Shirley Hardy and Pat Coy donated the tools from the dairy, which was owned by their parents, Adam and Geneva Welch. There is already one new display containing approximately 16 irons dating back to the early 1900s. Some of them required hot coals and kerosene for heat, Price said. The kitchen collection may expand with new items such as pots, pans, dishes, utensils and buckets. Anyone who would like to donate or loan pieces to the museum can call (775) 635-8548. Items must have a historical significance to the Battle Mountain area. Price said many people worked hard to bring the museum to Battle Mountain and urged everyone to stop by and look around. It is run by volunteers, she added. “I want people to realize what a valuable asset the Cookhouse Museum is to our community and encourage them to support it in any way possible,” she said.
All of the museum fencing is finished and one Walk of Names is slated to be finished in the spring. Anyone who would like to purchase a plank for $50 can call the museum. Landscaping will start in the spring. The museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free with donations accepted. A title has been chosen for the historical society’s Battle Mountain history book, slated to be released in July 2014. The title will be “Al Roads Lead to Battle Mountain,” with a subtitle of “A Small Town in the Heart of Nevada, 1869-1969.” Donations to the book include $10,000 from the Lander County Convention and Tourism Authority, $5,000 from Marigold Mine, $5,000 from Newmont Mining, $10,000 from Barrick Gold and $2,000 from Lander County along with a pledge of $8,000. The book will be on sale at the museum and is being written by Dana Bennett with the historical society serving as the publisher. All proceeds will benefit the museum. F www.insidenorthernnevada.com

'Sweet Corruptions' closing at Nevada Museum of Art Emilie Clark art installation evokes Victorian naturalists RENO
'Sweet Corruptions' by Emilie Clark
ew York-based artist Emilie Clark creates art installations informed by the history of science and natural history. Her exhibit, "Sweet Corruptions" has been on display in the Casazza Gallery at the Nevada Museum of Art since October of last year. It closes March 9. The latest in series of works focused on the work and lives of Victorian women scientists and naturalists, "Sweet Corruptions" departs from the work of Ellen H. Richards—a sanitary chemist who studied air, water, and food. Richards was the first female student and then professor at MIT, and had a profound interest in the relationship between people and their environment. She also brought the word "ecology" into the English language. Clark uses Richards’s work as a structure and guide, treating her own studio like a laboratory.

Stephen Shore’s seminal work "Uncommon Places" is considered one of the most celebrated and influential collections of photographic work produced in the past 40 years. This exhibit is on display at the Nevada Museum of Art through March 30. These images chronicle the artist’s multiple cross-country road trips, exploring the American landscape from 1973-1981. Shore used a wide-format view
camera to capture moments that are highly detailed and complex, presenting to the viewer a dense snapshot of the American built environment. Formal concerns such as framing and structure are paramount to his work. Shore was born in 1947 in New York, and his career began in the mid-1960s, as a frequent visitor and photographic chronicler of the scene at Andy Warhol’s “Factory.” Warhol’s work influenced the young photographer, who began creating his black and white works sequentially and in series, delighting in American culture. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York honored Shore with a solo exhibition when he was 23 years old. The same year he began working with color film, attracted to the medium’s ability to record the range and intensity of hues seen in life. Shore, together with William Eggleston, is one of the country’s pioneering color photographers. His works transforms banal scenes of everyday life into fine art. F
Lil’ Jake Eary memorial rodeo set for March 8-9 Spring Creek rodeo going strong in fourth year SPRING CREEK By Mary Branscomb, Special to INN
he fourth annual Lil’ Jake Eary Memorial Rodeo is slated for March 8-9 in the Spring Creek Horse Palace. Jakey was barely nine years old when he was killed in November, 2010, and his parents, Jess and Carrie, keep his memory alive by staging this rodeo in his name. Jake was very active in junior rodeos, says Carrie, “He dreamed of being a bull rider and talked of riding saddle saddle broncs like his dad.” This Memorial Rodeo is for people from toddlers to eighty. The events were chosen to include the whole family. Because that is what the Earys feel the rodeo is about: family. New this year are high point saddles that will be awarded in six divisions. “This is a rodeo that would have pleased Jakey,” said his mother. “He loved all of it.” It was a terrible accident that took Jakey’s life that dreadful day, but his family remembers him with this special memorial rodeo and they continue with the lifestyle that was so important to the youngest of the family. Carrie was born and reared in Winnemucca, Nev. She and her 3-year-old son, Josh, met Oregon-born Jess Eary when he was working for the Nevada First Corporation Ranching. After Jess and Carrie married, they, along with Josh (now 18), Daniel (now 14) and Jake lived and worked on www.insidenorthernnevada.com

the Bull Head Ranch outside of Paradise Valley from 1999 until 2009. Then they moved to horse property in the South Fork area near Elko, Nev., Jess works as a horseshoer, helps his rancher friends and hunts and traps with his boys. Carrie works as an insurance agent for Eclipse Agency in Spring Creek specializing in farm and ranch insurance. Today, Josh is a freshman at the University of Nevada Las Vegas planning to be a veterinarian. He is a member of the UNLV Rodeo Team competing in team and calf roping and steer wrestling. Daniel is a member of the Nevada Junior High School Rodeo Association and competes in team, ribbon and breakaway roping, goat tying, chute doggin’ and bull riding. He is a two-time National
Junior High School Rodeo qualifier in multiple events. Jake is remembered for idolizing Mike Lee – a Professional Bull Riding competitor - he even wanted to change is name to Jake Lee to be his brother, not realizing that Lee was already his middle name. From an early age, he was a little “horse trader.” Once, at age five, he traded one spur for a toy gun with a rodeo vendor, but only one because the other belonged to his brother and Daniel would “kick his butt” if he came back without it. Ultimately his mother had to ransom the spur by paying for the gun. Carrie spends a lot of time preparing for the memorial rodeo and she helps with other rodeos as well. She says the first memorial rodeo was staged to take care of funeral and medical expenses. “We never in a million years would have imagined that it would have become so huge. First year we had 350 contestants. Second year, 360. Third year 375, and this year we are expecting more.... Helpers? Oh boy. Too many to mention. “Now the Memorial Fund is used for scholarships and donations in Jake’s memory to youth organizations,” she said. Jess and Carrie are especially appreciative of friends and rodeo families who have come together
unselfishly to make the rodeo what it is — an amazing tribute to Jake and his memory. The Earys are a resilient young family able to rise above adversity and continue to contribute to the rural American lifestyle that makes the country strong. The memorial rodeo begins Friday evening with a “kick-off” party at 6 p.m. at Muley’s restau-
rant in Spring Creek. Rodeo action starts Saturday morning, March 8, with a breakaway jackpot roping. Mix branding starts and 3 p.m. And the main performance begins at 6 p.m. On Sunday, the rodeo begins at 9 a.m. With open branding followed by the other events.

Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words “God Is Dead” on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh find himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal, provoking an irate reaction from his smug professor. Radisson assigns him a daunting task: if Josh will not admit that “God Is Dead,” he must prove God’s existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God’s existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals. www.insidenorthernnevada.com

Italian wines are diverse — and delicious The
WINE GUYS Tom Marquardt and Patrick Darr
Like all chiantis, it is made from sangiovese grapes grown in beautiful Tuscany and aged in oak casks for 24 months. The 2006 didn’t show any depreciation in quality. Its elements were more integrated than what we found in the newly released 2008. This is a good wine for both current drinking or short-term aging. Meanwhile, here’s a motley collection of Italian wines we recently tasted:
Italy is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world and Italian wines are known worldwide for their broad variety. Italy shares with France the title of largest wine producer in the world, and contribuites about one-third of total world wine production. Grapes are grown in almost every region of the country and there are more than one million vineyards are under cultivation in 20 different appellations.
Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2010 ($29). Owner Virginie
350 varieties are grown in that small area You can never get enough Italian wine, we say. There is so much diversity in the Italian wine market — prosecco, barolo, chianti, brunello and more — that it seems impossible to have tried all of the 350 varieties grown there. To taste all of them every year would be like painting a bridge: once you finish, you have to start over again. Sangiovese hasn’t been our favorite Italian grape because it just doesn’t seem to deliver complexity unless it is blended with cabernet sauvignon. However, we were recently impressed when we pulled from our cellars an older chianti to compare to a current vintage. Although most collectors we know don’t see chianti as an age-worthy wine, many of them can do quite well. The wines were the 2006 and 2008 vintages of Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro. This is Ruffino’s top chianti and they make a lot of it. It’s relatively easy to find, which is one reason we like to write about it, and reasonably priced. 24 | Inside Northern Nevada | March 2014
Saverys bought this property just four years ago, but already her concentration on organic and biodynamic practices has made a difference. This southern Tuscan wine made made from sangiovese grown around the medieval hill-top town of Montepulciano is stunning. It has copious black cherry and plum flavors with a wet forest floor character that makes it so interesting.
Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro 2008 ($28). One of the most venerable producers in Tuscany, Ruffino takes up its reserve chianti a notch with Oro. It is made only in good vintages and only with the best grapes. About 20 percent of the blend is made up of merlot and canaiolo grapes. It went well with pasta bolognese.
Il Poggione Rosso de Montalcino 2011 ($28). Not everyone can afford to drink Brunello di Montalcino every day, so the rosso de montalcino is a great fall back. This little brother of brunello, made with the same sangiovese grape, has fresh, wild berry notes and is meant for early consumption. The grapes come from younger vines and therefore the wines don’t have the complexity found in brunellos sourced from older vines. The wine is aged in oak for a year to tame the tannins.
Mazzoni Piemonte Barbera 2010 ($20). This reasonably priced barbera with good bottle age is a delightful drink, even if simple and medium-bodied. Its red berry flavors and soft texture would be a great match for pasta. The wine is a partnership
between California’s Terlato and Italy’s Franceschi families.
Brancaia Chianti Classico Riserva 2010 ($40). Not all chianti is cheap and simple as this riserva will attest. Chianti lovers need to stretch their pocketbooks and try some of the more complex wines coming from Tuscany. About 20 percent of the wine is merlot and the rest is sangiovese. Forward in fruit, the wine shows off dark fruit notes with hints of tobacco and tea.
Castello di Gabbiano Chianti Classico 2011 ($12). One of our favorite Chianti producers, Gabbiano has several wines that never fail to please. This regular chianti is a great value for everyday drinking. Simple, medium-bodied and rich in flavor. The sangiovese is blended with a little merlot and canaiolo. We also like Gabbiano’s 2010 Bellezza ($40), its reserve sangiovese. You get a lot more complexity and concentration for the money.
Catina Zaccagnini Montepuliciano d’Abruzzo 2010 ($15). This is a great value from Italy. Made entirely from montepuliciano grapes grown in Abruzzo, it sports blackberry aromas and ripe dark berry and leather flavors. Nice hints of oregano and vanilla. Buy it by the case, if you can find it.
Re Midas Corvina Venezie IGT 2012 ($10).Corvina is one of the main
grapes that make up the soft Italian red wine in Valpolicella. Made entirely from corvina grapes, this wine offers up a nose and flavors of cherries and a little bit of earth. Soft and generous this is a very pleasing and well-priced wine that is worth trying. Not complex but very good. Lamarca Prosecco ($14). Very clean and refreshing grapefruit and apple flavors with citrus aromas. Good value.
Poliziano Rosso di Montepuliciano 2011 ($15). We were delighted to find thhis simple but delicious Italian gem from Montepuliciano. Blended with 20 percent merlot, the sangiovese offers up ample black cherry and raspberry flavors and a splash of oak. For the money we liked it better than its $28 cousin, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
Damilano Cannubi Barolo 2008 ($85). More and more barolos like this one are delicious on arrival. Although they can still be aged for a decade or longer, a more approachable style allows them to be enjoyed with dinner today. This one has good varietal flavors: cherry and ripe plum with a hint of tobacco and licorice.
Boroli Quattro Fratelli Barbera d’Alba ($15). This is a pretty tasty, albeit simple, wine for the price. Don’t expect complexity -- just bright raspberry and wild blackberry flavors. F

importers from Spain and this one is special to him: it’s from the Malaga region where he was raised. He is among a handful of producers trying to resurrect the moscatel grown in this region. The grape has oodles of tropical fruit flavors, particularly mango.
La Villa de Maison Vialade Rouge 2011 ($11). You can’t beat the price. From France, this wine
We know too many people who insist on drinking the same wine year after year. It’s not just the same grape variety -- but the same producer too. Maybe it’s just because they know what to expect and they don’t risk buying something they don’t like. However, there are a lot of wines with similar personalities that can be appealing to even the most finicky consumers. So, we recently found some unique wines to tempt your silly resolve to drink nothing but chardonnay and merlot. Here follows 10 odd-ball wines -- many of which have received scores of 90 or more from wine critic Robert Parker Jr. Firriato Altaville Grillo 2011 ($18). First brought to Sicily by the Phoenicians, grillo is one of several grapes commonly used in marsala. Here, this white wine is vinified dry -- very dry. Mouth-puckering dry. Very floral aromas of apples and sage. Good acidity and simple peach and apricot flavors. Bodegas Ordonez Zerran 2011($16). This blend from the Montsant region of Spain includes garnacha, syrah and mazuelo grapes. A terrific value that comes with high ratings from the Wine Advocate, it has a showy, dense character that surpasses what you would expect from its price. Dark berries and earthy notes. We went back to buy more. Osel Ruche 2010 ($15). Ruche is an unusual grape with a long history in Italy’s Piedmonte region. Soft mouthfeel but generous aromatics and notes of cherries and plums. Medium body but lots of fun to drink alongside pasta, pizza and other simple fare. Casa Castillo las Gravas 2009 ($27). The Jumilla region of Spain is known for its values and this blend from Jose Maria Vincente is a good examples. The blend is monastrell, garnacha and syrah. Its copious and dense flavors explode in the glass with notes of kirsch, blueberries and raspberries with a nice thread of mineral throughout.
is made from marselan grapes, a hybrid of cabernet sauvignon and grenache. Very simple with easy berry fruit.
Descendientes de J. Palacios Petalos Bierzo 2011 ($23). Mencia is a common grape grown in
clones of pinot noir to create a round and fulfilling pinot noir with cherry notes, Asian spices and a hint of mushrooms.
several regions of Spain, but not one commonly known to most of us who think of tempranillo when the think of that country. This beauty has incredible aromatics with notes of blueberries and anise. It’s delicious.
Jorge Ordonez Botani Moscatel Seco 2011 ($20). Ordonez is probably the most respected wine www.insidenorthernnevada.com
Raoul’s Old Basket Press Red 2012 ($14). First, how could you not buy a wine with a name like this? The primary grape used in this South African killer is tinto barocca. Depending on the vintage, it is blended with malbec, petit verdot, shiraz and merlot to give it dimension. Rich texture.
Primitivo Quiles Raspay Tinto 2006 ($25). This is made entirely from monastrell grapes -- the Spanish preference for mourvedre grapes. The 50-yearold vines don’t yield a lot of grapes, but this shows the density you expect from older vines. Copious lavender and plum aromas and black berry, plum flavors with hints of licorice and olives. Rich and ripe, it comes close to port-like qualities. Very different and yummy.
Yunguerra Blanco de Albilo 2012 ($22). Often added to a blend for its aromatics, the albilo grape can be found mostly in the Ribera del Duero region of Spain. We liked this unusual grape variety for its simplicity. Perfume like nose with a delicate richness on the palate.
WINE PICKS William Hill Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 ($14). Four our money, this is one of the best values in cabernet sauvignon. Well balanced, this estate cabernet from a venerable Napa producer is solid. Good fruit extraction, juicy cherry and blueberry flavors with soft mouthfeel and a dash of sweet vanilla.

Kim Crawford Small Parcels Spitfire Sauvignon Blanc 2012 ($22). Citrus notes mingle with tropical fruit flavors to give this crisply delicious sauvignon blanc a layered mouthfeel and long finish. From New Zealand, it’s an excellent wine to serve with lemon-flavored sauces.

Frei Brothers Reserve Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 ($23). This is an excellent value in cabernet sauvignon. Loaded with ripe, extracted dark berry fruit, it is soft and delicious on the palate. F Inside Northern Nevada | March 2014| 25
