Publisher’s Notes A wild start to the social season. The fall season calls for trends filled with animal prints, black leather, lace, purple, red as the new neutral and METRO has a fashion feature with all the styles from local stores and boutiques. Special thanks to Neiman Marcus, Deborah Kent’s, Love That!, Paradise Island, JC’s Boutique, Georgette’s and Tresca Italia for providing the clothing and accessories. Photographer, Ryan Gautier, hair and make-up by Monique and stylist, Linda Zipkin created wonderful images as a guide for all things fall. The photos were taken on location at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina. METRO magazine has once again teamed with Best Doctors in America® to provide the listing of more than 590 Tampa Bay area physicians in 68 medical specialties. As a partner for 12 years, the list compiled by Best Doctors, Inc. is a wonderful community resource and we hope it will assist you or a family member in finding a specialist should a health scare arise. There is still time for a beach escape to the Omni Amelia Island Plantation in north Florida. Recently completing a “re-imagination” of new guest rooms, lobby, pools and conference center, the resort combines the perfect blend of activity and relaxation. Perfect for a romantic escape or fun for the entire family. In METROHome, there are two wonderful properties that are both available for sale as a possible dream home. If you are looking for a new home, we present two waterfront options. In HomeDetails, we’ve found a few of our favorite things in the color for fall — purple. It’s time to get social and there are lots of charitable events coming up. We hope to see you out and about.

Irreplaceably You By Nancy Seijas-Kipnis

Fashion icon Coco Chanel once stated that in order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different. This season’s fall fashion forecast surely offers an abundance of room for individual style exploration. Fall fashion trendwatchers are predicting the season will include a panorama of color from pretty pastels to gem-like hues; menswear textiles; a grunge revival; 50’s silhouettes (think seaming, cinching, and flaring), and all things collegiateinspired. Officials at Neiman Marcus, Tampa’s local trend setter, suggest that in addition violets, rocker chic, pointed toe shoes, lace noir, and red as the new neutral will be hot, hot, hot for fall. For inspiration on how to conquer the season, make sure to attend CITY: Fashion+Art+Culture, at the Tampa Museum of Art on September 20. “The Tampa Museum of Art CITY event is an opportunity to celebrate the art in fashion while raising awareness and funds for art education in the Tampa Bay area. Each year, Tampa’s best dressed join us for an evening of fashion and delectable fare,” said Renee Mihale Farmer, Event Chair. “This year, we are pleased to add a special component to the evening. Unique gowns designed by local students and inspired by the art in the Museum will be featured and auctioned. Join us at the Museum where style is always in fashion.” Guests of CITY will enjoy a live runway featuring fall looks from Neiman Marcus; delectable tastings from Carmel Café, Eddie V’s, and entertainment from DJ Papi. Proceeds from CITY support the Museum’s education initiatives.

Mixing It Up In Our Own Backyard Ryan Pines of Edison: food + drink lab By Nancy Seijas-Kipnis Across America, libations are all the rage, and who knew that Bombay Sapphire’s search for the most imaginative bartender would be found right here in Tampa? Guests recently gathered as Bombay Sapphire gin ambassador’s sampled cocktails, made by Tampa’s most talented mixologists. After careful deliberation, the judges named Ryan Pine’s Sapphire Rose as the evening’s “Most Imaginative.” Tampa Bay METRO shares Pine’s fall mix up of a timeless classic, the Elevated Manhattan. “My hope is that when guests sample my cocktails, they taste how passionate I am about my craft,” said Ryan Pines. Pines will be heading to Las Vegas later this month to vie for the ultimate title, competing against 51 top mixologists from across the US.

Martinis for Moffitt: The Bay Area Advisors hosted one of the hottest parties of the summer at the Straz Center to benefit Moffitt Cancer Center’s research programs. The record crowd of nearly 800 enjoyed martinis, silent auction items, aerialists, breakdancer performing and DJ music and dancing. JCIII and Associates generously stepped up as the presenting sponsor and Kass Shuler was the VIP sponsor. | Celebrate Sinatra: The 16th Annual Celebrate Sinatra had a last minute location change, but nobody seemed to mind at Ken Walters’ annual salute to Frank and his cronies and all found their way to the Cuban Club. At the black tie optional event, guests sipped complimentary martinis during the first hour and hors d’oeuvres by Bernini.

METROLife B Scene

As summer winds down, it appears the social scene is re-invigorating itself in Tampa. Kids are back to school and Tampa’s finest are back in action. Dine Tampa Bay just wrapped its fourth installment with nearly 100 restaurants participating, as burgeoning foodies descended on some of Tampa Bay’s finest hot spots. Another hottie made her way through Tampa, as Bethenny Frankel stopped in at Grille 116 to host her “Calling All My Girls” event to promote her new talk show, “Bethenny” which premieres this month. The fourth annual Dine Tampa Bay Restaurant week ran this past August as a partnership with Visit Tampa Bay, Visit St. Pete Clearwater and the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association. Nearly 100 participating restaurants in the Bay area including SideBern’s, Mise en Place, Flemings, 717 South, Donatello, Irish 31, Ocean Prime, Birch and Vine, Parkshore Grill and more, gave an opportunity for locals and visitors to experience some of Tampa Bay’s finest restaurants at a great value. The purpose of restaurant week is to drive business and increase sales for area restaurants during a slow period and promotes the area as a premier culinary destination. Stella Artois was on board again this year as a lead sponsor. This year two events kicked off Dine Tampa Bay, The Sip N Sizzle bartending competition at the Birchwood, and the Celebri-chef Cook off at TPepin’s Hospitality, each judged by local media personalities. In the Sip N Sizzle, Bon Appetit’s Kenny Lang took first place but faced stiff competition from Anise’s Justin Gray, Mise en Place’s Audrey Grounds, PCI’s Brandon Redshaw, Donatello’s Gino Tiozzo, and SideBern’s Dean Hurst. In the Celebri-chef cookoff, the team of Fox 13’s Charley Belcher and Fleming’s Brandon Mikiluch were the top vote of the night, with Jen Holloway and Jason Cline of Birch and Vine coming in second, and Chad Johnson of SideBern’s paired with Brendan McLaughlin of ABC Action News, rounding out the top three. Defending Champion Mike

Swords of Irish 31 put up a great fight with Ernest Hooper of the Tampa Bay Times. The “Calling All My Girls” tour with Bethenny Frankel came to Tampa and hosted an exclusive event for 150 people at Grille 116. Assorted Skinnygirl prizes and giveaways, along with personal interactions and games with Bethenny made the evening fun for all. Winners were chosen from a contest presented by Fox 13. Frankel’s talk show cameras followed her as she previewed mini-segments for the crowd that will appear on her upcoming talk show, premiering this month. The well heeled crowd did not disappoint, and included Allison Vetter, Coco Soto, Ann Bailin, Veronica Swiatek, Katie Sommers, Ro Patel, and Marisa Langford. Want to B Scene?

Modern Lakefront Living in Carrollwood By Ronda M. Parag | Photography by Raif Fluker

When searching for a dream home, many times families are looking for waterfront living. Look no further than this custom-designed home in Carrollwood. The modern, architectural masterpiece is located on White Trout Lake, one of Tampa’s most coveted private lakes. The private dock and boat lift are ideal to store the boat, and take advantage of skiing that is permitted on the lake. Built in 1997, the two-story home is over 8,000 square-feet and sits on over a half-acre. The soaring 22 foot ceilings and oversized windows bring in natural light, showcasing stunning lakefront views from nearly every room. The spacious floor plan allows for easy entertaining downstairs with formal living room, breakfast room, and kitchen and family room combination. The separate game room and bar allows guests to relax and have fun without roaming through the entire home. The enormous eat-in kitchen is a chef’s delight with Thermador & Sub-Zero appliances. The staircase to the upstairs has custom glass artwork created by Steve Brewster, former football player with the Oakland Raiders. Brewster currently resides in Oklahoma and is still fabricating pieces of art.

The lavish master bedroom has its own sitting area with fireplace, spa-like bath with garden tub and separate shower stall. Dual sinks and extralarge his and hers closets with a central dressing area, makes getting ready a breeze. There is no need to head downstairs in the morning for that first cup of coffee, as the master suite has a morning bar and mini-kitchen to make morning or late-night snacks. The over-sized laundry area upstairs can also serve as a gift wrap room or other space to complete crafts. The tropical outdoor terrace overlooks the lake and features an outdoor kitchen and heated pool. A three car garage allows plenty of storage for the vehicles and plenty of parking for guests with a circular drive. The location of the home in the quiet community of Carrollwood offers an easy 15 minute commute into downtown Tampa. M This home is currently listed for sale at $1,500,000 with the Scherer Reder Group of RE/MAX Bay to Bay.

“We all have the power to make a real difference in our own care or that of a loved one.� David Seligman, Chairman and CEO at Best Doctors, Inc.,

Despite the best efforts of dedicated, time-strapped doctors, misdiagnosis still happens far too often. In today’s overburdened health care system, it’s harder than ever to have enough time to do the deep thinking needed to carefully examine each piece of a patient’s case. From a care and policy perspective, there is much that can and should be done to acknowledge and address the problem, but the private sector is taking proactive steps to combat the issue. Many of the world’s leading corporations and health plans are offering expert second opinions and other services such as KHOSLQJHPSOR\HHV¿QGWKHULJKWGRFWRURUGHFLGHRQWKHEHVWWUHDWPHQWRSWLRQV in an effort to ensure that employees get the right diagnosis. The truth is everyone must be involved when it comes to getting the right diagnosis – doctors, patients, hospitals, employers, and policymakers alike. Misdiagnosis doesn’t have to happen. We all have the power to make a real difference in our own care or that of a loved one.

Friedreich’s Ataxia Update: University of South Florida Pilot Study Natchez Hanson is a math and statistics teacher in the Polk country school system. She also happens to have Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA), a progressive neuromuscular disease that causes imbalance, incoordination, visual, speech problems, and cardiac disease. FA caused Natchez to have difficulty running and keeping up with other children when she was a child. But she soldiered on with her daily life, attending school every day despite continued neurologic symptoms. Her proudest moment in life was walking across the stage with her walker to receive her college diploma. The University of South Florida (USF) Ataxia Research Center is partnering with the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) to fight for a treatment and cure for FA. Dr. Theresa Zesiewicz, center director, and the center at USF are leading a multisite double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to test a new drug by Edison Pharmaceuticals that may help to improve symptoms of this devastating disease. The center is also running a clinical research study on cardiac dysfunction in FA, as well as studying better ways to monitor disease progression. This year, the USF and FARA educational symposium will be held on September 5, 2013 at the Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) in downtown Tampa.

Rise of the Clones Oregon Chardonnay Comes of Age | By Kevin Pelley

Oregon’s Willamette Valley

O

regon’s wine history is still in its infancy. David Lett, of Eyrie Vineyards, is credited with planting the first Pinot Noir grapes in Oregon’s Willamette Valley in 1965. Since then, Oregon wines have been met with critical acclaim from around the world. Perhaps the event that helped solidify Oregon’s reputation the most, for fine wine production, came in 1979 during the Gault-Millau French Wine Olympiades when Eyrie Vineyard’s 1975 Pinot Noir placed in the top 10, out of 330 entries from around the world, and was named the best Pinot Noir. Robert Drouhin, of the prestigious Joseph Drouhin in Burgundy, arranged for a rematch and put the

84

September 2013

Eyrie Vineyard Pinot Noir in competition against a lineup of France’s best wines. The rematch winner was a bottle of Joseph Drouhin’s 1959 ChambolleMusigny Grand Cru. David Lett’s Eyrie Vineyards Pinot Noir finished a very close second. Not bad considering it was just the sixth vintage of Willamette Valley wine, while Burgundy has been cultivating Pinot Noir since 100AD! Less then a decade later, the Drouhin family invested over $10 million in Oregon’s future by opening the state-ofthe-art Domaine Drouhin Oregon, thus helping solidify Oregon’s presence in the world wine scene. So with all of Oregon’s success with Pinot Noir, one might assume that

www.TampaBayMetro.com

Oregon Chardonnay would be having similar success. After all, Chardonnay is the white co-star of Pinot Noir in the Burgundy region of France, and Oregon proponents tout the Willamette Valley’s climate as the closest thing to Burgundy in the world. But surprisingly, Oregon Chardonnay has struggled to achieve the same lofty heights as Oregon Pinot Noir. In fact, Oregon Chardonnay has been fairly criticized for its harsh acidity, green flavors and lack of finesse. Well, it turns out that in the mid 1960s when a group of fledgling winemakers were trying to put the Willamette Valley on the world wine map, they were happy to receive vines and plant matter wherever continued on page 86 they could.

While they received the majority of plant material for Pinot Noir from Burgundy, the Chardonnay vines came by way of California. As it turns out, these Chardonnay vines from California were the wrong clone of Chardonnay for Oregon’s cooler, wetter Willamette Valley. That’s right, not all grape varieties produce the same style of grape from vine to vine. There are many different types of ‘clones’ of each grape variety. Each clone possesses a unique flavor profile, cluster size and maturation date. The vast majority of Oregon’s first wave of Chardonnay plantings were from California and were Selection 108 (U. C. Davis clones 4 and 5). It wasn’t until the mid 1970s when David Adelsheim, of Adelsheim Vineyards, visited Burgundy and began to figure it out. He saw that producers were harvesting the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir roughly at the same time. That was not the case back in Oregon, where Chardonnay needed additional time, sometimes as much as two to three weeks, to mature fully. Since Oregon’s Willamette Valley is a cool region, the fruit sometimes never achieved proper ripeness before being harvested, resulting in green, harsh and vegetal wines. Since this realization, producers over the last two decades

have been gradually grafting over to Dijon clones from Burgundy, which ripen earlier and are better suited to the cooler climate in Oregon. Unfortunately, the process has been slow, and demand for Oregon Chardonnay has been nearly nonexistent given its previous track record of inconsistency. After Oregon’s slow start with the Chardonnay grape and poor clonal selection, the day has finally arrived for this noble grape variety in the Willamette Valley. Today, Oregon is producing superb, pure and varietally correct wines with balanced acidity, freshness and perfect ripeness. Those who have previously written off

Chardonnay from Oregon, owe themselves the pleasure of tasting what the region is capable of producing. Particularly in the last five years or so, Oregon’s Chardonnays have been extraordinary and worthy of attention, but still flying below the radar for most wine lovers. The time to ignore Oregon Chardonnay is over. Do yourself a favor and locate a bottle from a reputable producer, and you will find a wine somewhere between the style of California and Burgundy, and possessing the best attributes from both regions.

2010 Evening Land “Summum” Chardonnay $79.95

2010 Domaine Serene “Evenstad Reserve” Chardonnay $59.95

2009 Chehalem “Ian’s Reserve” Chardonnay $35.95

This is the absolute pinnacle of what Oregon Chardonnay can be with its crystalline purity of fruit, laser beam of acidity and clean minerality. Evening Land is a joint project between Dominique Lafon from Burgundy’s Domaine des Comtes Lafon and Isabelle Meunier. Together they produce this amazing wine with flavors of crushed wet stone, dried pineapple, lemon curd and cloves.

Owners Ken and Grace Evenstad are now producing this cuvee styled Chardonnay from their estate vineyards in the Red Hills of Dundee. Aromatic and beautiful, the “Evenstad Reserve” offers flavors of lemon oil, citrus blossom, tart Bartlett pear, nutmeg and subtle vanilla tones, all backed with refreshing acidity and a hint of crushed stones.

The fruit for this Chardonnay is sourced entirely from the Stoller Vineyard in the Dundee Hills. The soil is entirely Jory, a red volcanic clay, and produces elegant and delicious wines. The 2009 Ian’s Reserve exhibits fruit flavors of baked apple, white peach and citrus along with notes of pastry dough and toasted hazelnuts. At $35.95 per bottle it represents an exceptional value for such a quality wine.
