Grant to fund digitization of city planning negatives

T

he Mahoning Valley Historical Society has received a grant to allow the digitization of a significant collection of negatives from the Youngstown City Planning office. The collection documents the central business district, the campus of what is now Youngstown State, neighborhoods impacted by urban renewal, and development in the Lake Milton area. Local businesses, structures no longer standing, and developments within the infrastructure of the city are represented. The negatives primarily date from 1956-1964, and include identifications. Digitization of the 1,900 negatives will make the collection accessible to patrons at the Historical Society’s Archival Library, while providing for increased preservation of the originals. Thumbnails and a resulting index will also be made available on the Historical Society’s Web site. Historical Society staff and volunteer interns will have the project completed by Dec. 31.

MAHONING VALLEY

Doubt remains over Mahoning County’s sole execution from 1877 BY GORDY MORGAN

ELECTRONIC IMAGE COURTESY OFTHE MAHONING VALLEY HISTORICAL SOCIETY

METRO MONTHLY STAFF WRITER

This pamphlet was published following the trial and conviction of Charles Theodore Sterling.

O

n April 21, 1877, a Canadian drifter named Charles Sterling became the first and only person to be executed in Mahoning County. Tried and convicted for the rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl, Sterling was sent to the gallows entirely on the basis of circumstantial evidence. The trial was covered by local and regional newspapers. The case also garnered national attention and the hanging was even reported on by The New York Times. Joshua Foster, who grew up in Liberty and graduated from Youngstown State University, has done in-depth research on the case and sees many problems with both the evidence presented and the legal proceedings that condemned Sterling to hang. Foster, who graduated from YSU with a degrees in religious studies and fine art, said he would some day like to write a book on the case. On the morning of Jan. 21, 1876, the lifeless body of 14-year-old Elizabeth Grombacher was found strangled in a thicket of trees on Loveland Hill, an area just north and east of the presentday Center Street Bridge in what was then Poland. News of the horrific crime sent shock waves throughout Mahoning County. Elizabeth, or “Lizzie,” was last seen that morning leaving for the home of a local family for whom she worked as a housekeeper. According to reports, a few people who traveled through the Loveland Hill area that morning remembered seeing a drifter walking along the road and it wasn’t long before a group of men on horseback, acting on the information given them by one of the witnesses, took after him. Around 4 p.m., Charles Sterling was in Boardman Center chatting with one of the locals. That morning, he had come to Youngstown looking for work and took several meals in Poland before heading west. Because of heightened suspicion, a constable, seeing a stranger in town, asked Sterling if he had just been in Poland. When he replied that he had, the constable arrested Sterling on suspicion of murder. Although he denied having any knowledge of the crime, the constable took him in handcuffs to Canfield to be held. (Canfield at the time was the seat of government for Mahoning County.) Sterling’s trial was held in June of that year, and it was quite a sensation, according to Foster. Although most people had a good sense of justice, Foster said many wanted Sterling to be found guilty because of the heinous nature of the crime. The vote was 8 to 4 in favor of con-

victing and the trial ended with a hung jury. Foster believes that it would have been “extremely difficult” to find an unknown drifter innocent of such a heinous crime, so the evidence against Sterling must have been “incredibly flimsy” for one third of the jury to vote the way they did. Foster also pointed out that the four jurors who didn’t vote to convict were actually very adamant about their doubts. However, the lack of a guilty verdict outraged many of the locals. According to Foster, there was “high sentiment that another trial should take place.” A second trial, held six months later in Youngstown, the new county seat, greatly concerned Sterling’s attorneys, who complained that an impartial jury could not be found in Mahoning County. They also argued that witnesses recalling details from almost a year earlier could not reliably testify about the all-important time line. Nonetheless, that November the proceedings began. William Shaw Anderson, Sterling’s new lead attorney, immediately brought the bias issue to the judge’s attention. But when Anderson asked for a change of venue to allow his client to get a fair trial, Judge Phillip B. Conant, who presided over the first trial, denied the request. The second trial only lasted a couple of weeks and on Nov. 16, the jury found Sterling guilty of murder. Following several failed attempts to secure a new trial, he was sentenced to hang in March of 1877. Foster, who has a long-standing interest in the case, has questioned the trial and

verdict. While researching the case, he had examined primary documents from several venues, most notably the Mahoning Valley Historical Society, to piece together an opposing view which casts doubt as to whether Sterling was fairly tried and convicted. When asked if he believes Sterling murdered Grombacher, Foster said that right now, “it’s inconclusive.” However, “there was enough reasonable doubt, and there was enough irregularity, that I don’t think he would have been convicted today.” Foster’s doubts begin with the time line. “No one could really pin down the exact times to a shadow of a doubt that this gentleman had been at these various places.” Next was the blood found on Sterling’s shirt, which Foster says was evidence that a lot of people couldn’t get past. However, because the technology of the day was lacking, the most a prosecution expert could conclusively state was that the small amount found was, indeed, blood—not whether it was Grombacher’s, or Sterling’s, or whether it was, in fact, human blood, even though the expert, a chemist, testified otherwise. Finally, there was no physical evidence linking Sterling to the crime—he had no scratches or any kind of defensive wounds that would indicate that Grombacher, who Foster says was described as being “strong” and “robust,” put up a fight. Foster indicated several procedural irregularities, starting with unrestricted public access to the crime scene. “Contamination alone would have precluded any kind of evidence being used,” he said. There was also the issue of possible bias, stemming from a prejudicial comment that the foreman of the second jury made. Foster says that after the verdict was announced it was discovered that, prior to being empaneled, the foreman had been overheard saying that he believed Sterling was guilty and should be hanged. This prompted Anderson to request a new trial. The judge, however, disregarded the comment, because of the “context” of the discussion in which the man made it, Foster said. “There are all kinds of reasonable doubt that can be inferred, unfortunately, that did not save Sterling.” According to report, just days before the

The 1877 trial was covered by local and regional newspapers. The case also garnered national attention and the hanging was even reported on by The New York Times. March execution date, a woman from Maxwell, Ontario, arrived in Columbus to plead to Gov. Thomas L. Young to allow a reprieve for Sterling, claiming the condemned was her son. Feeling sympathy for the woman, the governor delayed the execution one month to April 21. The woman traveled to Youngstown to see Sterling, but in a dramatic, tearful jailhouse meeting, Sterling, not wishing to cause his mother shame or misery, told the woman that he was not her son. Foster says that throughout the two trials, Sterling, because he never really thought he was going to be found guilty, was “fairly cheerful, even amused at the attention he was receiving.” However, when the verdict was handed down and he realized that he was, in fact, going to be put to death, he became despondent and at one point tried to escape. It took several guards to overpower him and end the episode, but when one of them pulled a gun, the condemned man begged him to shoot. Foster relates that as Sterling stood on the gallows, he asked to speak to one of the Gromabachers, telling him that he was very sorry for what happened to his sister, but that he had nothing to do with her death. Foster said the brother told Sterling that he did not believe him because the evidence said he was guilty. The execution was gruesome. According to Foster, whoever tied the noose did not tie it well. The knot slipped from the back of Sterling’s head to under his chin and he dangled helplessly gasping for breath for five to 10 minutes before dying. Foster said spectators looking for vengeance were horrified by what they saw and begged for Sterling to be taken down. But his executioners could do nothing more than watch and make sure that the sentence was carried out. Investigating the crime 135 later, Foster maintained that “whether or not Sterling was guilty, we’ll never really know, but it can be fairly well-assumed that he did not get a fair trial.” He concedes that there was “decent circumstantial evidence,” but that it was “circumstantial nonetheless.” Without physical evidence linking him directly to the murder, Charles Sterling might have been convicted and hanged simply because he was in the “wrong place at the wrong time,” Foster concluded.

Alzheimer’s diagnostic guidelines updated for first time in decades The updated guidelines will now cover the full spectrum of the disease as it gradually changes over many years.

FROM THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH

F

or the first time in 27 years, clinical diagnostic criteria for Alzheimer’s disease dementia have been revised, and research guidelines for earlier stages of the disease have been characterized to reflect a deeper understanding of the disorder. The National Institute on Aging/Alzheimer’s Association Diagnostic Guidelines for Alzheimer’s Disease outline some new approaches for clinicians and provides scientists with more advanced guidelines for moving forward with research on diagnosis and treatments. They mark a major change in how experts think about and study Alzheimer’s disease. Development of the new guidelines was led by the National Institutes of Health and the Alzheimer’s Association. The original criteria were the first to address the disease and described only later stages, when symptoms of dementia are already evident. The updated guidelines will now cover the full spectrum of the disease as it gradually changes over many years. They describe the earliest pre-clinical stages of the disease, mild cognitive impairment, and dementia due to Alzheimer’s pathology. Importantly, the guidelines now address the use of imaging and biomarkers in blood and spinal fluid that may help determine whether changes in the brain and those in body fluids are due to Alzheimer’s disease. Biomarkers are increasingly employed in the research setting to detect onset of the disease and to track progression, but cannot yet be used routinely in clinical diagnosis without further testing and validation. “Alzheimer’s research has greatly evolved over the past quarter of a century. Bringing the diagnostic guidelines up to speed with those advances is both a necessary and rewarding effort that will benefit patients and accelerate the pace of research,” said National Institute on Aging Director Richard J. Hodes, M.D. “We believe that the publication of these articles is a major milestone for the field,” said William Thies, Ph.D., chief medical and scientific officer at the Alzheimer’s Association. “Our vision is that this process will result in improved diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s, and will drive research that ultimately will enable us to detect and treat the disease earlier and more effectively. This would allow more people to live full, rich lives without -- or with a minimum of – Alzheimer’s symptoms.” The new guidelines appeared online on April 19, 2011 in “Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association.” They were developed by expert panels convened last year by the National Institute on Aging, part of the National Institutes of Health, and the Alzheimer’s Association. Preliminary recommenda-

It also appears that amyloid deposits begin early in the disease process but that tangle formation and loss of neurons occur later and may accelerate just before clinical symptoms appear. To reflect what has been learned, the National Institute on Aging/ Alzheimer’s Association Diagnostic Guidelines for Alzheimer’s Disease cover three distinct stages of Alzheimer’s disease: ◆ Preclinical – The preclinical stage, for which the guidelines only apply in a research setting, describes a phase in which ELECTRONIC IMAGE COURTESY OF WIKIMEDIA COMMONS brain changes, including amyloid buildup Alzheimer’s disease also has been receiving in- and other early nerve cell changes, may alternational attention.

Local cancer survivor trains for Senior Olympics

L

ocal native Kim N. Hines has continued to train for his second competition in the 12th Semi-Annual National Senior Games, despite recent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his brain last December. Previously, Hines brought home the silver twice in state competitions and is now going for the national gold. He underwent surgery at the St. Elizabeth Hospital Medical Center in Youngstown in late December after a brief illness in which doctors discovered a malignant tumor. Radiation treatments were finalized in March and proved successful. This encouraged Hines, who has competed in the games since 2004, to resume his training regimen. The National Senior Games Association was formed in 1985 and hosted their first event in the fall of 1987 in St. Louis with 2500 competitors. It was viewed by over 100,000 spectators with Bob Hope as a featured celebrity. Hines became interested in competing in 2003. For more information on the National Senior games, visit www.nsga.com.

Mitch Lynch’s roast pork tenderloin stuffed with butternut squash and Swiss chard. Repeat with the other piece.

Homestyle.”

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

COOKING

1 boned pork loin 1 large butternut squash (skinned and cut into one quarter by 3 to 4 inch sticks) 1 bunch Swiss chard Salt and black pepper 2 feet of butcher’s twine

• Preheat oven to 350 degrees. • Lay the roast fat side up in the pan. The roast should take about 15 minutes per pound (approximately 3-4 hours for traditional 185 degrees). I like to remove the roast at 165 and let settle on the table. Remember that the brining will give the roast a pinker hue. (You are safe at 165 and up. ) By allowing the roast to rest, you will find it slices nicely, giving you amazing color. • The pan drippings may be saved and used for a pan gravy.

“Homeplate airs every Saturday at 7 a.m. on WYTV (Channel 33) and every Sunday at 11:30 a.m. on MyYTV.

For the brine: 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup sea salt (Use sea salt, if possible. Kosher also works well.) 1 quart water 3 whole sage leaves 1 sprig of thyme 3 bay leaves

HOW TO MAKE IT • Cut the pork loin into two equal portions, and place in a container overnight (nine to 12 hours). • Rinse the pork off and discard brine. • Take one piece of pork and butterfly (cut lengthwise into the middle of the meat from the side to a half inch from the other side) and lay the whole piece open like a sheet of paper. Salt and pepper. • Blanch the Swiss chard in boiling water just enough to wilt the large leaves. You may need three large leaves to cover all but an inch from the border. You also may need to cut the large spines out as they can be tough. • Lay the butternut squash sticks end to end down the center of the chard (three to four in a bunch). Wrap the chard around the squash lightly. Salt and pepper and fold the meat around. • Now, working one end to the other, tie a loop around the top and all the way down. Remember to tie off both ends.

y interest in food goes back to when I was a child, and I used to watch cooking shows on PBS with my sister on Saturday afternoons. We’d watch Julia Child and Nathalie Dupree each week, two of my favorites. I can remember back even farther, when we’d watch this very obscure program on canning, with a lady who wore cat glasses and frequently smacked her lips. Something about cooking shows and how they explained everything step-by-step always fascinated me. Fortunately, my parents and grandparents were great cooks – and my mom taught me and my sister how to cook at a very early age. My dad was an electronics nut, and was always getting the latest video and audio equipment as I was growing up. I followed in my dad’s footsteps, and also embraced electronics – and by the time I was in high school at John F. Kennedy in Warren, I was frequently making videos for class projects with my friends. This trend continued all the way through college at YSU, constantly pushing the equipment in the Cushwa Hall video lab and studio to its limits. When I began working with the Metro Monthly, it was only natural for me to suggest to the publisher that we should be making business profile videos. This eventually morphed into making a television program. Season one of “Homeplate” was definitely a learning experience – producing nearly 40 original episodes, and when it wrapped up, I was kind of relieved – having a bit of time to relax, and learn new video editing techniques. But I couldn’t stay away from it for long, and as we restructured the program and began working with our new hosts, the process became much more enjoyable. The new editing skills I had learned during the hiatus made producing season two much more efficient and fast. The group of people we are working with is amazing. I have known Stephanie Shaw since our days in college together – in fact, she and I worked together back then making video projects for several of our classes. I knew Stephanie would be a natural on television even then, and when we began planning season two, I was certain that she would have to be a host. As far as my favorite foods, I love my mom’s spaghetti and meatballs – it’s a recipe I have grown up with and have almost learned how to replicate. I have recently been introduced to Korean food, and absolutely love all of the side dishes given with the entrees. I am also a big fan of kitchen appliances – I wouldn’t be able to function without my Kitchen Aid mixer and Cuisinart food processor. I enjoy cooking and experimenting with new foods, and I have recently begun cooking with vegetarian staples tofu and tempeh. I am proud of the hard work from everyone involved with season two of “Homeplate.”The diversity of the cast, and the inclusion of more than food makes for a very interesting and watchable program.

Luva Bella hosts benefit for Relay for Life A pril arrived with the expected spring showers, and a fine group of wine tastings. Along with Springfield Grille’s monthly dinner taste, wine events were held at Johnny’s Fine Food and Spirits in Boardman, Five Points Wine and Bar, Station Square Ristorante, and Luva

baked Margherita pizza with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and fresh basil leaves. If you’re looking for a good time and great wines, give Luva Bella a try. I’d like to thank Stefanie Sobinovsky, team captain Terrie Price, and their sponsor, Bezac Equipment, for inviting me to their “Team Bezac” fundraiser to benefit Relay for Life and cancer research. It was a great event. Last month, Wine and Dine Ohio held our dinner taste at Liberty’s Station Square. Chef Ottavio Musumeci prepared a host of fine food pairings for the wines that hailed from every corner of the wine world. We started the evening with

Bella Winery. Johnny’s hosted a fund raiser for the

Poland Wrestling Mat Club. Owner and Chef John Berndt prepared a delicious feast for the 150 people in attendance. Jumbo crab cakes, stuffed mushrooms, filet beef tips, Cajun chicken, and tortellini Alfredo were served, along with trays of assorted desserts. Wines ranged in price from $6.99 (Jacob’s Creek Moscato) to $59.99 (3 Palms Merlot). The Jacob’s Creek Moscato is a real bargain for someone with a sweet tooth looking for a wine to serve with a bowl of fresh fruit or as an aperitif. Another fine white was the Wente 2009 Morning Fog Chardonnay ($12.99) from Livermore Valley. Crisp yet supple citrus flavors and a clean finish will make this a nice choice for upcoming summer gettogethers. Two reds really stood out. The 2008 Mi Terruno Reserve Malbec ($14.99) from the Lujan de Cuyo region of Mendoza, Argentina was a real standout. Deeply colored with bold dark fruit flavors, it finishes long and elegantly with spicy new oak aromas. They made only 800 cases of this undervalued red, so stock up soon. New to this area is the 2009 Man O’War Cabernet Sauvignon ($19.99) from Treasure Hunter wines. It is made from fruit sourced from the cool Carneros region of Napa Valley, and produces a smooth Cab that is simply amazing for the price. Treasure Hunter Cabs are always short in supply, so it’s never too early to put a few away for holiday gifts. Next I tried the 2006 Conn Creek “Anthology” Napa Blend ($56.99). A scrumptious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (62 percent), Merlot (21 percent), Cabernet Franc (8 percent), Malbec (7 percent), and Petit Verdot (2 percent). It delivers gobs of rich mocha-tinged red fruit flavors that will make your think you are sampling a wine at twice the cost. Conn Creek’s Anthology Red proves that California can produce outstanding quality reds at a very competitive price. I’d like to thank Johnny’s John Berndt and Poland Wrestling Mat organizers Mike and Janet Audi and Ron and Tracy Prizant for inviting me to this splendid event. My next wine event took me to the Luva Bella Winery in Lowellville for a

wine guy fundraiser for the Relay for Life “Team Bezac” of Poland. This was my first chance this year to sample Luva Bella’s wines, and I was simply amazed at their across-theboard quality. I had a chance to talk with owner Frank Sergi and he has big plans in the works for his winery. Their delicious wood-fired brick oven pizzas, Panini sandwiches, and salads are going to be expanded to a full-service restaurant menu featuring grilled steaks. Luva Bella’s extensive wine list offers many traditional favorites including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but it also has a few unusual offerings that I think are fantastic. Head winemaker Joe Hollabaugh and his assistant Charles Crespi poured me a glass of their yet-to-be-released Orange Muscat and Malvasia blend. Dry but fruit-driven with an aroma redolent of fresh-cut flowers and summer fruit, it is a joy to drink. My next wine was their Black Muscat Reserve. Exotic spicy and berry dark fruit flavors lead to a supple finish that will have you coming back for more. My next pick was their medal-winning Zinfandel. Textbook brambly-berry flavors and a full fat finish made me reach for another piece of Luva Bella’s brick oven

yeasty finish were just the answer for the special crab bisque. For the people who ordered the charred grouper Louisiana style, Oregon’s Red Hawk 2009 Riesling provided a near-perfect combination. The zesty fruit driven Oregon Riesling worked nicely with the spicy grouper. The next wine poured was the 2009 Cleto Chiarli “Moden Blanc” sparkler from Italy. Crisp and vibrant fruit and a razor-sharp finish went famously with the mocha-cappuccino cheesecake. Our first red pairing was Red Hawk 2008 Pinot Noir from Oregon. Spicy dried cherry flavors and a crushed berry-tinged finish went very well with the Polla Quattro chicken entrée. Our last wine was the 2009 Vecchia Cantina Rosso Toscana from Tuscany, Italy. Bold yet supple red fruit flavors followed by a long clean finish brought approval from our guests and was a great finish for the evening. Once again, Chef Ottavio provided a wonderful evening for the Wine and Dine Ohio members. The Springfield Grille in Boardman was my next dinner tasting. This month’s distributor was Superior Beverages, and they provided a fine selection of wines to sample with Chef Nick Mileto’s delicious entrees. Our first course was Annapolis Starter (English muffin topped with a Chilean sea bass cake, drizzled with rosé Bernaise sauce), and it was paired to the 2007 R&B Sauvignon Blanc from California’s north coast. Citrus and melon on the nose with upfront fruit flavors, it was a fine choice for the rich sea bass cake. Layered buffalo mozzarella and vine-ripened tomatoes drizzled with a basil-mango emulsion was paired to a 2009 Frei Brothers Chardonnay from Sonoma County, Calif. for our next course.

ish were a nice match for this summery dish. Our third course was house-made lamb sausage served atop Panini focaccia (made by pastry chef Randy Johnson) drizzled in orange dipping sauce. This delicious Old World-style entrée was paired to California’s Central Coast 2009 Bridlewood Vineyards Pinot Noir. Bright Cote du Beaune-style berry fruit flavors and a spice-tinged finish went wonderfully with the tasty lamb. Mustard-crusted flank steak served with Italian farro (grain) risotto was a perfect match to the 2009 Central Coast William Hill Winery Cabernet Sauvignon. Bold dark cherry and plum flavors were more than a match for the spicy flank steak and rich risotto. Not to be outdone, Randy Johnson’s signature semi-sweet cannolis topped with crushed pistachios was paired with Rotta Winery’s 2007 Zinfandel Port from Paso Robles. This is one of the finest Zinfandel Ports I’ve tried from California, and it was just the match for the tasty cannolis. Congratulations are in order for Springfield Grille’s dedicated kitchen and staff for another fine food and wine event. I was happy to attend Five Points Wine Bar’s second wine tasting since their change in ownership. Once again, they put on a fantastic taste. Five distributors were located throughout the bar and dining room, with trays of flatbread pizzas, seared Ahi tuna, grilled sirloin, cheese fondue and assorted pastries and fruits. My first pick was Oregon’s 2007 Oak Knoll Winery Riesling ($13.99). Citrus and pear aromas and and apple flavors made this a natural choice for the cheese fondue. Another delicious white was the Carlo and Sylvia Moscato d’Asti sparkler from Italy ($13.99). Sweet candied fruit flavors and a honey-tinged finish made this low-alcohol sparkler a natural choice for Five Points’ delicious desserts. My first red pick was the 2009 Ruta 22 Malbec ($13.99) from Patagonia, Argentina. Violet red in color with plum and berry flavors, it was outstanding with the grilled sirloin. My next red was Cline Vineyards’ 2009 Cashmere Blend (50 percent Mourvedre, 33 percent Grenache, and 17 percent Syrah). This underpriced red produces dark cherry and cocoa flavors with a finish tinged with black pepper and spice. The pear and caramelized onion flatbread was simply outstanding with this red. I want to thank owner Kelly Cocca and her experienced staff for a wonderful time. Wine Styles of Howland held a tasting featuring California Zins this month, and I found two at attractive price points and styles. My first choice was the 2007 Mutt Lynch “Portrait of a Mutt” Zinfandel

($11.99) from the Central Coast. This mellow Zin is dark ruby in color, with dark cherry and pepper flavors that lead to a supple clean finish. This is burger-andbrats Zinfandel at its best. If you’re looking for a Zin with a little more stuffing, give the 2007 Dead Lights Zin ($21.99) from Treasure Hunter Wines a try. Made from Sonoma fruit, this bold-textured Zin gushes succulent black cherry and blueberry flavors and finishes long and silky. My next

RESTAURANTS stop was Elm Road’s Michael Charles Premier Wines Second Saturday taste. My first choice was the 2008 Line Shack Rousanne blend ($15.99) from Monterey County, Calif. Citrusy pineapple and apricot flavors led to a creamy finish. This attractive blend of Rousanne (80 percent), Marsanne (10 percent) and Viognier (10 percent) is comparable to many French Rhone blends costing much more. If you’re looking for a rich, inky-colored Petite Sirah, give the 2008 Dancing Coyote Petite Sirah ($15.99) from Clarksburg a try. Baked dark fruit and berry flavors lead to a pepper-tinged finish that seems to last forever. Herb-crusted flank steak would be a great partner for this bold red. Vintage Estate Beer and Wine’s third Saturday taste provided two great summer-style wines for upcoming summer cookouts. My first pick was the 2007 Windsor Sonoma Winery Sauvignon Blanc ($18.99) made from Russian River

fruit. Crisp pear and grapefruit flavors give way to a refreshing finish that should go nicely with grilled chicken or shrimp. My next pick was the 2010 Calcu Rosé blend from Chile. A tasty cuvee of Malbec (50 percent), Syrah (40 percent), and Petit Verdot (10 percent), it offers spicy cherry and strawberry flavors and a delightfully crisp finish. Mike Lapmardo, owner of Charlie’s Premier Wines of Howland, held a lastminute tasting featuring Bergevin Lane Vineyards from Washington state. Lapmardo was also able to bring Bergevin’s winemaker Steffan Jorgensen along to explain his wines to the large crowd of wine aficionados gathered. His first wine was the 2009 Calico White ($19.99). A tasty blend of Marsanne, Rousanne, Chardonnay and Viognier, it provides lush yet crisp citrus flavors and an exotic finish that can only be produced by Washington state’s cool climate. This is another Rhone-style blend that is getting more popular with seasoned wine drinkers. The 2007 Calico Red blend starts with Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and smidgen of Petit Verdot thrown in. This is a very wellcrafted red that deserves serious attention. Textured dark cherry and plum flavors and a finish tinged with spice and mocha will keep you coming back for more. Lapmardo should be congratulated for providing an interesting afternoon filled with great wine. Upcoming events include 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 25, Wine and Dine Ohio tasting at Rachel’s in Austintown, and 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 16, at Alberini’s in Niles (featuring Ortman Winery).
