Roots, Revival and Harmony
Foghorn Stringband brings unique sound to Winnemucca
nternationally acclaimed Foghorn Stringband has been at the vanguard of a revival in American old-time music for over a decade now. They’ve traveled the globe, been signed to a major label, and inspired a new generation of old-time musicians, all without compromising their love of traditional American music. But they’ve gathered new ideas and new band members too. Their unique sound still comes from the fiery, intertwining melodies of Stephen “Sammy” Lind’s fiddle and Caleb Klauder’s mandolin, but now they’re supported by the bedrocksolid rhythm foundation of Reeb Willms’ guitar and Nadine Landry’s bass. And when it comes to vocals, they deliver; four powerful and exceptional voices resulting in countless combinations of harmonies. The Foghorns will be on stage in Winnemucca at the Martin Hotel on Thursday, Oct. 3 for a 7 p.m. performance. A typical Foghorn set is based around exquisitely rare old-time tunes and songs, but a vast knowledge of early country music and recent explorations in Cajun song traditions have molded a powerful new sound. Any band would be happy to have mastered one music genre, but Foghorn Stringband have a roaming spirit, and are already sparking new revivals of American roots music traditions. Wowing audiences across the country and across the pond playing over 200 days a year, Foghorn is one of the most sought after acts for festival stages and music camps, and ares band mates for world renowned master old-time musician Dirk Powell and Cajun legends Joel Savoy and Jesse Lége. On their critically acclaimed CD, Sud de la Louisiane, released earlier this year, Foghorn draws from the same repertoire that has always inspired their work: the tunes and songs of the American South, from the hollers of Appalachia to the early 6 | Inside Northern Nevada | OCTOBER 2013
days of country music. Together, they blend voices, repertoire and instruments to create a diverse performance true to the roots of American music, throwing some Cajun songs and Caleb Klauder's vintage sounding originals in the mix. Performing live, these multi-instrumentalists gather around a single microphone in the middle of the stage. They play the old way, the way you’d have heard stringbands play on Southern radio stations back in the 1930s. They don’t fancy up the music to make it more modern, instead they reach deep into the heart of the songs, pulling out the deep emotions that made them so enduring in the
first place. It’s a whole new world today for folk musicians, but the four powerhouse musicians in the Foghorn Stringband prove that they’re still riding on the cutting edge, with one foot in the analog past and one foot in the digital future This event is presented by Great Basin Arts and Entertainment, a local all volunteer grass-roots non-profit, organized to bring world class performances to our community. Tickets are available at Global Coffee, Nature's Corner and The Martin Hotel or online via the Martin Hotel website: www. themartinhotel.com. For more information visit www.gbae. org.

Chris Proctor on stage in Carson City Virtuoso guitarist at BAC Oct. 12 CARSON CITY
ritics call Proctor's guitar playing breathtaking.
One reviewer recently tried to capture the essence of Chris Proctor’s music: “What to call his unique melange of styles? There’s an aspect of Americana in the echoes of Appalachian and old-timey styles that are apparent in just about every track, but there are also elements of jazz, Celtic folk, and a dash of blues in here somewhere. "What Proctor does is create guitar music that reflects the whole heritage of the instrument and still has his own distinct stamp — a tall order, but he’s up to the job” Proctor will be on stage at the Brewery Arts Center in Carson
City Oct. 12. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $18.50 for reserved floor seating or $8.50 for general seating. A $2 discount is available for general seats for BAC members, students and seniors. The luminous and diverse quotes about Proctor reveal the breadth and depth of his music. His solo, 6 and 12-string guitar concerts and recordings are highly-regarded. Two additional comments typify the first-time listener’s reaction: “Wow- I didn’t know that acoustic guitars could sound like that,” and, ” It seems as if there are three guitarists up there on stage, not just one.” Proctor was born in Germany as an Army brat in 1951, moving six times before the family settled in Salt Lake City in 1964. Though he picked up the guitar early in his life, it wasn't until late in high school and then in college that Proctor stumbled across
country blues, and experienced the epiphany to which instrumental players so commonly testify afterwards. A basement coffeehouse at the University of Utah, a couple of good blues players, and his life changed. He finished his studies in philosophy, but by the time he graduated in 1973, he was playing guitar 6-8 hours per day, listening to whatever records he could find, (Leo Kottke, John Fahey, John Renbourn, and a host of blues players like Blind Blake, Mississippi John Hurt, Elizabeth Cotten and Tampa Red). Located at at 449 W. King Street in the historic district of Carson City, the BAC hosts over 100 events each year in multiple facilities. Events include theater productions, concerts, art classes, kid’s programs, recitals and receptions. For tickets or more information visit breweryarts.org or call (775) 883-1976. F
Guitarist Chris Proctor lives in Salt Lake City with his lovely wife Tomi, and enjoys backcountry skiing, fly fishing, backpacking, hiking, river-running and other wacky physically-challenging outdoor adventures. He has too many Taylor guitars, and looks forward to playing every one of them.

Elvis tribute artist Jim Anderson brings unique act to Eureka Opera House

n music there are those special artists that seem to transcend genre and defy categorization. From time to time one hears a voice that can stop you dead in your tracks and shake your very foundation to the core. Mike Farris is that artist and he has that voice. He will perform Oct. 4 at the Oats Park Art Center in Fallon. In June of 2007 Farris released the critically acclaimed Salvation in Lights which married old time roots gospel sounds with his own unique arrangements that were mainly inspired by New Orleans, Stax and the blues. The music was both spiritual and personal for Mike as it dealt with individual struggle but it also had a commonality that music fans from all walks of life could enjoy. In 2008 he won the Americana Music Association's “New & Emerging Artist of the Year”

In 2008 and 2009 Mike Farris and his Roseland Rhythm Revue performed monthly residencies at Nashville’s’ Station Inn and called it “Sunday Night Shout!” The official live recording of the Station Inn shows, Shout! Live, was released in 2009 and won the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Award for “Best Traditional Gospel Album of the Year” in 2010. When the “1,000 year flood” hit Middle Tennessee in May of 2010 it became obvious to Mike that he needed to do something to help those who were affected. He gathered up some of the finest musicians in town including: Sam Bush, Ketch Secor & Gill Landry (Old Crow Medicine

Show), Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart), Byron House (Robert Plant) and members of his Roseland Rhythm Revue. Six songs were recorded in 6 hours at Nashville’s Downtown Presbyterian Church and the music was a beautiful blend of old time country, gospel and blues with Mike leading the “Cumberland Saints” from the pulpit. Mike Farris continues to amaze audiences whenever he plays solo or with any one of his different configurations from the stripped down Cumberland Saints to the full 9 piece Roseland Rhythm Revue. His voice connects and mesmerizes in such a way that it doesn’t matter if the songs are his own compositions or ones sung 200 years ago. As Mike puts it “this music - it’s so beyond us, we only perpetuate it. We are just cooks in the kitchen.” If so Mike Farris is one “cook” with an immediate voice. Presented by the Churchill Arts Council, tickets are $17 for CAC members and $20 for the general public. For more information or advance tickets call (776) 423-1440, or visit www. churchillarts.org.

The group has been crisscrossing the country entertaining Elvis, country, oldies, and music fans alike. They have won the hearts and respect of thousands of Elvis Presley fans woldwide through their high-energy, vocally spot-on show. The group is on stage at the Eureka Opera House on Friday, Oct. 18. Fans have been patiently waiting for something new, and have been asking for something different — and Jim Anderson and the Rebels have answered that call. They pour out their heart and soul to the fans at every show. Frontman Anderson began performing in 1986 while in high school after being coerced by
his football buddies. After about six words of "Love Me Tender," to his surprise, he received a screaming standing ovation and could barely hear the music. The reaction was so great the Jim was immediately hooked — and booked for several small venues. The venues continued to grow larger and he became an opening act for such renowned names as: The Platters, The Coasters, The Isley Brothers, Zydaco Flames, and the "Ragin' Cajun" himself, Doug Kershaw. Anderson is backed by guitarist Frank Musucci, bassist Micky Yamo, drummer Paul Johnson and keyboardist Tom Farnsworth. Eureka Opera House performances begin at 7 p.m., and tickets are available at the door. For more information visit www. co.eureka.nv.us/opera/opera05. htm or call (775) 237-6006. F

Fun for all at Lazy P Farm Fest
Corn maze, haunted house and plenty of other family-friendly events at Winnemucca's newest attraction
he Humboldt County Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with the Lazy P Adventure Farm to present the Fall Farm Festival.
The festival will be held every weekend in October at the Lazy P Adventure Farm located on Grass Valley Road, Winnemucca. The Fall Farm Festival is agriculture-related and will feature two corn mazes encompassing over five acres, a pumpkin patch, farm animals, educational displays and interactive activities for children and their families. The Lazy P Adventure Farm is a start-up family operation striving to share our passion for farming and agriculture with our guest. Our objective is quite simple; we want children to have fun while learning. Students can put knowledge into action while interacting with live farm animals, challenge their critical thinking skills navigating our maze, experience “agriculture in process” as they observe and learn about growing corn and pumpkins, and to just simply utilize all their senses to form a memorable experience on the farm. We believe it is important that children understand the importance agriculture plays in their everyday lives. Get lost in a giant maze of corn stalks! Whether your age 5 or 105, our two separate corn mazes will offer a fun and challenging adventure to inspire creativity and teamwork. We have divided over five acres of corn into a mini-maze that is designed for small children, those with more limited time (15+ minutes) -and- a full-blown design requiring a bit more time (45-90 minutes) and attention. (Ticket includes both mazes) You can either put your skills to the test with no assistance or utilize our Passport system which will provide clues along the way. An observation bridge is strategically positioned for a bird’s eye view of the maze. We suggest you wear comfortable shoes and bring along some water. Smoking is not permitted in or around the maze. The maze is open every weekend in October. Saturday hours are 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Sunday hours are 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Last tickets are sold at 5 p.m. each day.

Open Oct. 24-26 and Oct. 30-31 from 6:30 - 10:30 p.m. Hundreds of Pumpkins! Bring the entire family and search for the perfect pumpkin

Other things to do at the Lazy P include a petting zoo, bounce house, cow train, hay maze, corn cannon, pedal cards, corn box (like a sandbox, but filled with corn kernels instead!), water pump duck races and other fun activities for kids. The whole family will enjoy a look at antique vehicles and tractors, demonstrations of agriculturallyrelated arts, live entertainment and plenty of good food.

Elko Gallery names Albitre as 'Artist of the Month'
Artist focuses on beauty of God's creation ELKO By Carmen Gage Ackert, Elko County Art Club Gallery Director
he Elko County Art Club’s current Vice President, Genny Albitre, is the ECAC “Artist of the Month” for October. The “Artist of the Month” is chosen at random by club members at the monthly gallery meeting held the first Tuesday of every month and gives member artists the opportunity to share their work and inspiration with fellow artists and the local community. Albitre is a long-time member of the Elko County Art Club, a non-profit organization founded in 1978, having served as Vice President since January and ECAC Gallery Director for previous gallery locations. Her past efforts in winning and maintaining sponsors for the club’s “Rotating Art” program has enabled the ECAC to award annual scholarships to aspiring young artists on an ongoing basis. Albitre’s Albitre publicity-building work has resulted in greater exposure and recognition for the club and continues to create a foundation for organizational growth.
'Pleasant Valley Sunset' by Genny Albitre Raised in California’s Southern San Joaquin Valley and having lived three years in Spain and the past thirty years in Nevada, Albitre’s oil and mixedmedia art is shaped by the beauty of God’s creation; the landscapes, culture, and people around her whose expression find life on her canvas. An artistically late bloomer, Albitre didn’t begin painting till age 50 when her husband gifted her with her very first set of oil paints and a paintbrush. Albitre started by experimenting in oils and took a beginning oil painting class at a

local community college. One assignment in particular found her painting a scene of the Ruby Mountains from a photograph, and with astonishment at what her artistic talent had reproduced on canvas, exclaimed, “God created this scene, I just painted it!” This revelation launched her career as an oil painter and led to the naming of her fine art business, Designed by God, Painted by Genny. Albitre’s artwork is currently on display at the ECAC Gallery located in downtown Elko at 407 Railroad Street Tuesday – Saturday, from 11am-5:30pm.

Legendary comedian Bill Cosby on stage in Wendover WENDOVER Everybody's favorite TV dad, Bill Cosby, takes to the stage at the Wendover Concert Hall on Saturday, Oct. 5 for two performances. Tickets for the 6 p.m. show or the 9 p.m. show start at $30. The cornerstone of Cosby's standup act has always been the strength of marriage and the family — and the silliness, foibles and failures that come with raising children. Cosby also gets behind the microphone for numerous keynote-speaker gigs at colleges around the contry. Recently, the iconic speaker has polarized audiences with his no-nonsense approach to race and personal responsibility. Whether you lean liberal or conservative, the funnyman hits home with his call for men of all races to remain involved in their children's lives and to create stronger families. No matter what his message, he's a magnetic speaker with much to say about life, family and America.

Wild west and wildlife focus of two Fallon gallery exhibits Rising Sun features pair of diverse talents during October
he Rising Sun Gallery and Art Studios on Maine Street in Fallon will be featuring two well-known artists during October. A 'meet the artists' reception will be held on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 6-10 p.m. at the gallery. Multi-award winning pencil and oil artist Charley Van Troba will be displaying a selection of his western, 'buckaroo' artwork. His drawings and oils are influenced by his experiences from working the southwest as a ranch hand on many cattle and horse ranches. He says that to qualify as a cowboy and horse artist, one must have it in their blood and must paint subjects the artist sees, feels and understands. Although mostly self-taught, he began studying art with Steve Lesnick from Las Vegas. Van Troba's work is known worldwide and has paintings
hanging in private collections throughout the United States, Canada, England, Poland, Brazil, and Australia. He has won numerous awards continuous from the Helldorado Western Art Shows in 1994 and 1995 through the Winnemucca Buckaroo Art Show in 2000. National exhibits include George Phippen Western Art Show in Prescott, Arizona to Nebraskaland Days Governor's Art Show in North Platte, Neb. The television viewing public may be surprised to learn that retired television journalist Bill Brown of Reno is also an artist. He will be exhibiting his work of computer-enhanced mixed media art of wildlife from around the globe. He states that as an artist he is concerned about the environment and will shortly be premiering a new web site dedicated to clothing art with a focus on saving the world's wildlife. The Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. For further information on this or other events or art classes, call Patricia at (775) 294-4135 or at facebook.com/ risingsunartgallery.

Funny Fangs Lowry High School students performing Dracula — with a twist
By Joyce Sheen, INN
owry High School is preparing a pre-Halloween treat for all those who love the classic tale of Count Dracula (and who have a sense of humor). Drama and stagecraft students are working to recreate the world of Dracula — well, sort of. Actually, this particular Dracula play is “Kochenderfer’s Dracula.” And who would Kochenderfer be? Tim Kochenderfer is a (ten-time) emmy award-winning news producer, who also writes plays — His 20 published and internationally produced plays prove nothing is sacred, as his plays spoof Hamlet, Romeo, Frankenstein, Othello, Macbeth, Werewolves, and Ebenezer Scrooge, in addition to Dracula and others. In his blog, Kochenderfer says the idea for this play came when he was 16 years old and met the real Dracula. After (of course) trying to bite him, Dracula told him his own love story, which Kochendorfer now shares in this play.

LHS Drama and Stagecraft teacher, Corrine James, who spends her summers googling scripts to find just the right plays for her high school students, is very enthusiastic about Kochenderfer and his little Dracula play. She ticked off the reasons that it’s perfect for a first play of the season. First, it’s short — 45 minutes of great entertainment, but within that are lots of characters, which gives a part for every student and two parts for some. Next, the play can be done with dual lead characters, something the drama instructor really likes because it gives more students the chance to enjoy a leading role. Also, this play gives the student-actors an opportunity to try out using an accent; they’re working on enunciation to ensure the dialogue is easy to understand, James says they have yet to try it out with the Dracula teeth in — which may require additional adjustment). James said they’re having fun creating the costumes for the play and she noted there will be a few surprises, “You probably never thought there would be a unicorn in a play about Dracula, but there is!” Perhaps most important, anyone familiar with Lowry stagecraft will not be surprised to hear they’ve even managed to work some glitter into both costuming and scenery. James said the students are being challenged by the number of scenes and quick scene changes in the play, “They’re having to work on making the scene changes fluid,” she noted. www.insidenorthernnevada.com
“I have a really good feeling about this group of kids,” James said of her drama and stagecraft classes, both of which have an uncommon number of first-timers. She said, “I’m thrilled with the kids and it’s exciting to introduce nearly a whole new group to the fun and hard work of drama and stagecraft.” James is having her own first-time experience this year with having the help of a co-teacher for drama and stagecraft. James’ has a student-teacher, Kelly Ross, who is working on taking over teaching the English classes James teaches also teaches. For the drama and stagecraft classes, they decided the best formula was to work as co-teachers. James said, “Having another adult to help with everything is pretty great,” James said. James pointed out that longtime drama teacher Janet Kennedy always had the help of Susan Rorex who taught stagecraft for years and worked in concert with Kennedy to put on all the plays. Rorex continued to volunteer her help with scenery and costumes for years after she retired from teaching. “I just got thrown into
behind the mid-week performances, saying she’s working around her students’ schedules. “They’re involved with everything — soccer, cheerleading, football, and we want them to be involved,” she said. Here’s a plot teaser: Count Dracula seems like just another customer to bumbling real estate salesman Jonathan Harker. Well, except for his really long fangs, his lack of a reflection, his fear of garlic and crosses, and his intolerance for sunlight. But when the Count holds Jonathan captive and pursues a romantic relationship with his fiancee, believing she is his longlost bride, well that’s enough to make any man want to drive a stake through someone’s heart. “You don’t have to travel to Reno and pay high prices to see good theater,” said James, “we have it right here in Winnemucca and the price hasn’t changed for 20 years.” The play will be held in the auditorium of Lowry High School. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. each night, with curtain up at 7 p.m. F
Oct. 14 -15 • 7 p.m. Lowry High School it all by myself.” James said in addition to all the help, student teacher Kelly Ross adds a refreshing element entirely her own to the group. Ross is a 1999 Lowry graduate in her first month of student teaching. Ross hoped she could do her student teaching with James, who had been her teacher at Lowry and also her Honor Society advisor. “The play is very funny,” said Ross, adding that she is really enjoying watching the students make it their own. Put it on the calendar — Kochenderfer’s Dracula will be performed by the LHS drama and stagecraft classes on Tuesday, Oct. 14 and Wednesday, Oct. 15. James explained the reason

Concussion Written and directed by Stacie Passon in an auspicious directing debut effort, and produced by Rose Troche, "Concussion" is a poignant sexual examination of Abby (Robin Weigert in a star making breakout turn), a forty something married wealthy, lesbian housewife who, after suffering a blow to the head from getting smacked by her son’s baseball-walks around every corner of her suburban life to confront a mounting desire for something else. She takes on a new project and purchases a pied-à-terre in Manhattan. Walking around the city streets reminds Abby what it feels like to be sexy, and her pent-up libido shakes off its inhibitions. Her newfound desire though is not a take-home item, so Abby inaugurates a double life as a high-end escort. Palpably sensual and deliciously contained, "Concussion" is a keen observation of the complicated contours of midlife crisis. + www.insidenorthernnevada.com

WINE & SPIRITS TASTING NOTES
Sequoia Grove puts 'enthusiasm' in every bottle The
and mineral notes add to the mix of flavors.
Sequoia Grove Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 ($38). Focused on Rutherford fruit, this dense wine has good weight on the palate and copious blackberry and cherry flavors. The oak is apparent but not overwhelming. About 40 percent of the oak is from American trees. Eighteen percent of the blend is from other Bordeaux grape varieties.
Tom Marquardt and Patrick Darr
WINE PICKS Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 ($44).
Napa winemaker Trujillo works to source and grow better grapes We have always felt that enthusiasm accounts for something at a winery. Anyone bored with winemaking can’t be producing good stuff if a chardonnay, for instance, doesn’t excite the senses or blends too easily with the plonk made down the street. So when you talk to Michael Trujillo, president and director of winemaking at Sequoia Grove, you know you’re going to taste enthusiasm. Trujillo has worked at Sequoia Grove for more than 30 years, but in 1998, after studying at UC Davis extension program for enology, he earned his first winemaking job at Sequoia Grove. He also learned a lot from respected winemakers, such as Tony Soter, Mike Grgich and the late legend Andre Tchelistcheff. 28 | Inside Northern Nevada | OCTOBER 2013
Sequoia Grove is easy to spot from the busy Highway 29 near Oakville in Napa Valley. It is nestled in a small grove of giant sequoia trees, one of a few redwood stands in Napa Valley. Until recently, we’ve not been a fan of Sequoia Grove because the wines never passed our threshold for mediocrity. Whatever happened in the last several years, however, has been positive. When he applied for the winemaking job, the owners asked how he would turn around Sequoia Grove. Trujillo said they needed to get better grapes. When Trujillo first arrived, the winery purchased 80 percent of its grapes. Today it grows 80 percent of its grapes. He feels they are 6 to 7 years into the rebuilding process, but he is confident his wines will “compete with anything around us.” Annual production hovers around 38,000 cases, which is relatively small. Trujillo and winemaker Molly Hill prefer to concentrate on making small lots of artisan wines that are largely unavailable in most markets. A focus on breadth and small-batch wines makes it more difficult to identify Sequoia
Grove’s signature. However, the booming business at its popular tasting room off the main drag in Napa Valley allows them to quickly distribute many of the small production wines unavailable nationally. The tasting room obviously plays a big role in its business plan. “Molly and I have this ship turned around,” he said. Sequoia Grove’s cabernet sauvignon appears to be the starship of the fleet. At $38 it is one of the best cabernet values in Napa Valley. As if to demonstrate that Sequoia Grove can produce great, age-worthy wines, Truijillo and Hill have crafted a superb, limited-production red blend called Cambium that will challenge the pocketbook at $140 a bottle. Here are some of the gems we recommend:
Sequoia Grove Chardonnay 2011 ($28). Most of the grapes come from Carneros, but you won’t find that on the label. Trujillo likes to have the flexibility to introduce new sources, including Oak Knoll, from year to year. The Wente chardonnay clone gives this wine mouthfilling ripeness. Citrus, apple
One of California’s most historic wineries produces consistently good cabernet sauvignon from excellent vineyards in Rutherford, Mt. Veeder and Atlas Peak. This one is no less in quality. It shows off an opulent nose of dark berry, spice, oak and clove. There is an abundance of rich dark cherry fruit and long finish.
Louis M. Martini Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 ($30). You would be hard pressed to find a cabernet sauvignon of this caliber for $30. Alexander Valley is one of the best regions in Sonoma County for cabernet sauvignon. This one shows off herbal aromas with a dash of licorice. Richly structured, it has black cherry flavors and fine tannins.
Luce Della Vite Luce 2009 ($93). The price will scare off a lot of consumers, but have no fear that the wine lives up to the expectations. A blend of sangiovese and merlot, it has excellent structure and concentration. There are layers of aromas, ranging from plum to nutmeg and licorice. The palate is generous in round cherry and plum flavors. F www.insidenorthernnevada.com
Notes from the experts — The sagrantino grape The
WINE GUYS Recommend Tom Marquardt and Patrick Darr Several years ago one of us had the opportunity to visit Umbria in central Italy. The reason for the visit was to explore the region around Montefalco and learn more about the excitement surrounding the resurgence of the indigenous sagrantino grape. The sagrantino grape originally was grown by monks who used it to produce a dessert-like sweet wine as far back as the Middle Ages. Revived as a dry table wine in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the wine was granted D.O.C.G. status in 1992. The sagrantino grape has a reputation for producing ink-black wines with fierce tannins and high levels of a natural phenol resveratrol that is believed by some scientists to have health benefits. We recently had the opportunity to taste some current new offerings of wines from the region around Montefalco all of which made use of the sagrantino grape. Following are our impressions:
Antonelli Montefalco Rosso DOC 2009 ($23). This blend -- 65 percent sangiovese, 15
with very intense cherry fruit flavors with a hint of leather in the nose and mouth. This wine would go well with pretty much any red meat dishes, and is a great introduction to the sagrantino grape.
BEER NOTES Growing up in the 1960s, beer choices were pretty much limited to lagers and local brands such as Natty Boh or national brands like Budweiser, Schlitz and Carling. Exotic was drinking Lowenbrau or Heineken. Today there is a brave new world of hand-crafted, small production local beers, as well as a myriad of seasonal beers produced by local and national craft brewers that cater to virtually any flavor imaginable. Often these selections come bottled in 25-ounce bottles and sport alcohol levels of 8-10 percent and price tags of $10-$20 each. After a recent wine tasting we broke out some of these craft beers and were delighted that they appealed to our wine loving guests. The refreshing quality of the brews and complex flavors evoked a lively discussion and a vow to investigate these new bottlings in the future. Since we are entering the fall drinking season, you will find that a wide variety of seasonal beers are available in wine, beer, and spirits shops -- especially pumpkin beers that we highly recommend. Following are our tasting notes on some of the available craft beers available in our area.
New Belgium Brewing Lips of Faith Pluot Ale 25 oz. ($10). This ale from New Belgium
percent sagrantino, 10 percent cabernet sauvignon, and 10 percent merlot -- started out of the bottle closed but opened up after about 20 minutes in the glass. The wine exhibited a nice dried cherry nose, and was round and rich in the mouth showing good potential for a couple of years aging.
Brewing Fort Collins Colorado is a very smooth fruit flavored brew that is made from pluots which are hybrid fruit of apricot and plum. Nice complexity and the 10 percent alcohol packs a punch.
Tenuta Castelbuono Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG 2007 ($37). This is 100 percent
cross between a porter and a scotch ale. Blueberries infuse the malt base which offers coffee and chocolate notes to create a beautiful beverage. Try this by itself or with chocolate desserts. 9 percent alcohol.
sagrantino. Beautiful licorice, berry nose that led to a smooth and rich expression in the mouth with significant soft mouth coating tannins. Should evolve well over 3-5 years.
Arnaldo-Caprai Sagrantino di Montefalco “Collepiano” 2005 ($50). Made entirely from sagrantino, this wine revealed a very complex Bordeaux-like nose and flavors of licorice, cherries, cassis and earth. This is a very intense wine with big but appropriate tannins that should age and evolve nicely for a very long time. Magnificent!
Terre di Trinci Montefalco Sagrantino 2006 ($25).This is a bargain for sagrantino lovers. Made by the Terre di Trinci cooperative this well crafted wine exhibited a deep pure red color www.insidenorthernnevada.com
Shipyard Brewing Co. (Portland Maine) Pugsleys Signature Series Smashed Blueberry 25oz ($10).The malt beverage base is a
WINE of the
MONTH Woodbridge introduces new sweet red and sweet white wines Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi has broadened its extensive portfolio with the additions of Sweet Red and Sweet White wine blends. These sweet wines bring a new dimension to the dependable and affordable Woodbridge line, drinking well on their own or as a fun addition to fruity wine cocktails. Sourced and produced in California, the Woodbridge Sweet Red is a chillable red blend comprised primarily of Syrah, Merlot and a variety of sweet white grapes.This enticing wine displays lively flavors of strawberries and watermelon, and aromas of cherry and raspberry. The Woodbridge Sweet White, a proprietary white blend highlighted by Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Viognier and Verdelho, exudes bright citrus flavors of tangerine, orange blossom and grapefruit, and is rounded out by aromas of luscious green apple and white fig. Both wines are versatile enough to pair with nearly anything, from spicy Asian foods to assorted cheeses and fruit desserts. The Woodbridge Sweet Red and Sweet White wines can be just as delicious served on their own, as they can be blended into sweet and fruity wine cocktails. The Sweet White shines when mixed into a fun cocktail like a white peach Bellini. The Sweet Red can be enjoyed chilled, or when blended into a fruity red sangria with diced strawberries and apple slices.
Southern Tier (Lakewood, New York) Pumking Pumpkin Ale 25 0z. ($10). This pumpkin ale can be very difficult to find due to the almost rabid devotion of its fans. Very rich in the mouth with intense flavors of pumpkin pie spices , this pumpkin ale is one of our favorites.
Schlafly (St. Louis, Missouri) Pumpkin Ale 6-12oz bottles ($12). Not as intense as the Southern Tier Pumking, but a very nice brew with a good balance of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove that make this 8 percent ale very easy to drink and a good value. F Inside Northern Nevada | OCTOBER 2013 | 29
