Lien Forward Ohio aids 2 development projects

L

ien Forward Ohio Regional Council of Governments has awarded more than $43,000 in cash grants and services to two local not-for-profit organizations that will use vacant, abandoned, tax-delinquent land for development projects. The Lien Transfer & Grant Review Committee of Lien Forward Ohio recently approved financial aid requests from Hope for Youngstown and Potential Development. In both cases, the organizations will use Lien Forward Ohio’s attorney and receive cash grants toward the costs of acquiring abandoned lots. Hope for Youngstown, led by Rev. Jay Alford, plans to build single-family homes as part of a multi-phase project on a 15acre site on the city’s lower South Side, near Oakhill Cemetery. The homes will be comparable to those located in nearby suburbs, Alford said. Buyers must be able to obtain conventional financing in order to purchase a home. The combined value of Lien Forward Ohio’s attorney services and cash grants to Hope for Youngstown is $39,312. Potential Development’s award of $4,160 will be applied toward that agency’s acquisition of eight parcels for construction of a new building on its South Side Youngstown campus. Potential Development, 209 W. Woodland Ave., serves preschool and school-age children who have developmental delays, challenging behaviors and communication disorders such as autism. “We are happy to support two projects that will have a positive impact on these neighborhoods and our community,” said William G. Addington III, Lien Forward Ohio’s executive director. Lien Forward Ohio is funded by the Mahoning County Treasurer’s Office and the City of Youngstown. Financial aid also is available to qualified individuals who will be good stewards of abandoned, neglected properties. Grants are awarded to individuals based on federal income guidelines. Lien Forward Ohio was created in October 2005 by Mahoning County and the City of Youngstown in an effort to return vacant, abandoned, tax-delinquent land to productive status. It is an extension of the Treasurer’s Land Reutilization Program, which was an initiative by former Mahoning County Treasurer John B. Reardon.

Lewis Macklin II and the congregation of Holy Trinity Missionary Baptist Church of Youngstown have recently formed a disaster-relief ministry called the Humanitarian Outreach for Peoples Everywhere (or HOPE) to assist Americans in need, particularly those in New Orleans (HOPE4NOLA). The organization was founded by several Youngstown and Mahoning Valley residents, many of whom were first-responders in the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. According representatives, the new organization is part of an ongoing local effort to aid Hurricane Katrina victims. Project directors include Macklin, Valerie Parm, the Rev.

Orleans and surrounding areas has been painfully slow. Although flooded with up to 15 feet of water, many homes are said to be viable. Through previous volunteer efforts, HOPE4NOLA was able to help many elderly, poor and handicapped families return to their homes. In partnership with Catholic Charities Regional Agency Youngstown and New Bethel Baptist Church, HOPE4NOLA volunteers typically spend a week in New Orleans and work to gut homes, remove debris and rebuild damaged dwellings. The ministry has raised funds for the effort, but

the organization said more donations and charitable contributions are needed. Teams of 10 volunteers have traveled to New Orleans at about a cost of approximately $3,000 per trip. Costs include transportation, fuel, housing and meals for the week. Due to the environmental conditions, the work is often dirty, sweaty and sometimes uncomfortable. The most recently completed trip was by students from Kent State and the Beta Theta Pi fraternity who traveled by van to gut the homes of elderly victims. Future missions will occur this month and in April and June. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and both skilled and unskilled volunteers are welcome to participate.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Urges funding increase for military hospitals Dear Editor:

R

ecently the Washington Post ran a three-part series on the serious defects in outpatient medical care provided at Walter Reed, considered by many a crown jewel among the nation’s military hospitals. The Boston Globe published a story, picked up by several newspapers around the country about Jonathan Schulze, a 25-year-old Marine combat veteran of Iraq, who committed suicide after he and his family tried twice to get him admitted into the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in St. Cloud, Minn. because of post-traumatic stress disorder. As veterans, we’ve known for years about failings within the veterans health care system. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the return of our wounded are bringing this into sharper focus for the public and we appreciate that the media is telling this story. Our veterans benefits system is in desperate need of reform and we need to start with a reality check. In the past few years, the VA budget has been $1 to $2 billion short. We think the gap may be as much as $4 billion in the 2008 budget due largely to what we believe is an underestimation of the costs for caring for our wounded service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. We need to establish a VA budgeting system that more accurately accounts for the health care needs of all our veterans, including our newest. We also need to rethink how we provide services. Last October, our organization, AMVETS, hosted the National Symposium on the Needs of Young Veterans. Five hundred veterans, active duty military, family members and those who serve veterans came together in Chicago to discuss how the system can be modernized to better serve veterans, including the National Guard and Reserve members whose roles have dramatically changed with the war or terror. “Voices for Action: A Focus on the Changing Needs of America’s Veterans” produced by the symposium attendees contains 120 recommendations on improving health care, streamlining the benefits process, ensuring employment rights and finding solutions to homelessness among veterans. We’re now knocking on the doors of our elected representatives and various federal agencies and asking them to make the kind of common-sense changes included in our report. As members of AMVETS, we are committed to helping make the needed changes. We encourage you to look for and report on the stories of veterans in our community. And we invite the public to join with us. Visit www.amvets.org to download a copy of “Voices for Action.” Take a look at the recommendations and then write or call your U.S. Senator or Congressman and encourage them to read the report and support mandatory funding for the VA. We made a promise to our veterans. Now let’s keep it.

– John P. Brown III National Vice Commander, AMVETS

Researchers hopeful discovery benefits AIDS vaccine effort FROM THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH

I

n a finding that could have profound implications for AIDS vaccine design, researchers led by a team at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, have generated an atomiclevel picture of a key portion of an HIV surface protein as it looks when bound to an infection-fighting antibody. Unlike much of the constantly mutating virus, this protein component is stable and – more importantly, say the researchers – appears vulnerable to attack from this specific antibody, known as b12, that can broadly neutralize HIV. “Creating an HIV vaccine is one of the great scientific challenges of our time,” said NIH Director Elias A. Zerhouni, M.D. “NIH researchers and their colleagues have revealed a gap in HIV’s armor and have thereby opened a new avenue to meeting that challenge.” The research team was led by Peter Kwong, Ph.D., of NIAID’s Vaccine Research Center. His collaborators included other scientists from NIAID and the National Cancer Institute, NIH, as well as investigators from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, and The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Calif. Their paper appeared in the February 15 issue of “Nature” and is now available online. “This elegant work by Dr. Kwong and his colleagues provides us with a longsought picture of the precise interaction between the HIV gp120 surface protein and this neutralizing antibody,” says NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. “This finding could help in the development of an HIV vaccine capable of eliciting a robust antibody response.” For years, AIDS vaccine developers have been stymied by the seemingly unlimited ways HIV eludes natural and vaccine-induced immune defenses. Notes Dr. Kwong, “The more we learned about HIV, the more we realized just how many levels of defense the virus has against attacks by the immune system.” For example, not only does HIV mutate rapidly and continuously – defeating attempts by the immune system to identify and destroy it – the virus is also swathed by sugary molecules. This nearly impenetrable sugar cloak prevents antibodies from slipping in and blocking

“The first contact is like a cautious handshake, which then becomes a hearty bear hug,” said Gary Nabel, M.D., Ph.D., director of NIAID’s VRC and co-author of the new paper. An effective HIV vaccine likely needs to induce antibodies that can sense and destroy multiple HIV strains. Scientists have sought such broadly neutralizing antibodies by studying the blood of people whose immune systems appear to hold the virus at bay for long periods of time. One of these rare, broadly neutralizing antibodies is b12. Until now, no one had succeeded in determining the detailed structure of b12 in complex with gp120. It was extremely difficult to crystallize b12 bound to gp120, says Kwong, in part due to the inherently flexible naELECTRONIC IMAGE COURTESY OF THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ALLERGY AND INFECTIOUS DISEASES This 3-D X-ray crystallographic image shows the ture of the chemical bonds broadly neutralizing antibody b12 (green ribbon) in gp120.

The event was sponsored by the Urologic Research Institute and Wheeling Jesuit University. “It’s important to educate everyone about ways to prevent cancer and about screenings for cancer,” said Steubenville resident Barb Wilinski, a long time volunteer for the American Cancer Society. Wilinski and her husband, Rich, helped collect donations and distributed the educational information.

Humility of Mary sets baby-massage classes

C

larrissia Housel, LPN, CNMI, Humility of Mary Health Partners Resource Mothers Program coordinator, has successfully completed the certification course in newborn massage instruction through the Baby’s First Massage program. The certification enables Housel to teach new families and anyone with direct care of newborns how to massage their healthy baby, or sometimes the pre-term baby. Developmental research shows healthy newborns, medically stable pre-term infants, and babies exposed to illicit drugs during pregnancy greatly benefit from receiving a simple daily massage. The documented benefits include improved digestion and absorption of breast milk/formula, increased weight gain, deeper and more restful sleep, better elimination, improved immune system functioning, shorter hospital stays for the premature infant, and improved bonding with the family. A Newborn Massage class will be held March 31 at 10 a.m. in St. Joseph’s at the Eastwood Mall, Niles. Participants will learn simple massage, early infant communication, interpreting cries, and ways to comfort the baby. The class is limited to 10 couples who are pregnant or parenting a newborn. Expecting couples should bring a life size doll to class. Cost is $20 per couple. To register, call 330-652-7542. For more information on the benefits of newborn massage, contact Housel at 330-373-6429.

Cancer Society offers patient transportation

C

ancer patients receiving treatment at a nearby hospital or medical facility can get free transportation to and from their treatment site. The American Cancer Society’s “Road to Recovery” program is a free service for cancer patients who lack transportation. “Getting a ride is a problem for some cancer patients,” said Barb Barsch, volunteer coordinator of the Road to Recovery program in Mahoning and Trumbull counties. “Many need daily or weekly treatment, often over the course of several months. They may not have a vehicle, or they are simply too ill to drive,” she said. Other patients may not have friends or relatives in the area who can accommodate their needs because they work and are unable to get a leave of absence. Road to Recovery drivers donate their time and the use of their personal vehicle to transport cancer patients and meet this need. Call 330-533-0546 for more information.

Health study finds reduced brain growth in alcoholics with family drinking history FROM THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH

T

he brains of alcohol-dependent individuals are affected not only by their own heavy drinking, but also by genetic or environmental factors associated with their parents’ drinking, according to a new study by researchers at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Researchers found reduced brain growth among alcohol-dependent individuals with a family history of alcoholism or heavy drinking compared to those with no such family history. Their report has been published online in “Biological Psychiatry” at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ journal/00063223 as an article in press. “This is interesting new information about how biological and environmental factors might interact to affect children of alcoholics,” noted George Kunos M.D., Ph.D., scientific director, Division of Intramural Clinical and Biological Research, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Many studies have shown that alcohol-dependent men and women have smaller brain volumes than non-alcohol-dependent individuals. It is widely believed that this is due to the toxic effects of ethanol, which causes the alcoholic’s brain to shrink with aging to a greater extent than the non-alcoholic’s. “Our study is the first to demonstrate that brain size among alcohol-dependent individuals with a family history of alcoholism is reduced even before the onset of alcohol dependence,” explained first author Jodi Gilman, B.S., a National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism research fellow and Ph.D. candidate at Brown University working with senior author Daniel Hommer, M.D., of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Laboratory of Clinical and Translational Studies (LCTS) and co-author James Bjork, Ph.D., also of the NIAAA/LCTS. Children of alcoholics are known to have a greater risk for alcohol dependence than individuals without a parental history of alcohol dependence. In addition to inheriting genes that predispose them to alcoholism, children of alcoholics may experience adverse biological and psychological effects from poor diets, unstable parental relationships, and alcohol exposure before birth, all of which could contribute to their increased risk for alcoholism. In a search for direct physical evidence of these assumed genetic and environmental mediators of family-transmitted alcoholism, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism researchers used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to measure the volume of the cranium – the part of the skull that encloses the brain – in a group of individuals being treated for alcohol dependence. The intracranial volume, they note, is determined by skull growth, which occurs as the brain expands to its maximum size around puberty. Because ICV does not change as the brain shrinks with age, it provides a good estimate of the lifetime maximum

Many studies have shown that alcohol-dependent men and women have smaller brain volumes than non-alcohol-dependent individuals. It is widely believed that this is due to the toxic effects of ethanol, which causes the alcoholic’s brain to shrink with aging to a greater extent than the non-alcoholic’s. volume of the brain. The researchers found that the average ICV of adult alcoholic children of alcoholic parents was about 4 percent smaller than the average ICV of adult alcoholics without family histories of alcoholism or heavy drinking. Family history did not affect the frequency, quantity, or other aspects of drinking behavior of the alcoholics themselves, suggesting that differences in ICV between family history positive and negative alcoholics are not the result of different drinking patterns. The researchers also found that adult alcoholic children of alcoholic parents had IQ scores that averaged 5.7 points lower than IQs of alcohol dependent individuals with no parental drinking, but that were still within the range of normal intelligence. The authors note that a possible implication of their findings is that the increased risk for alcoholism among children of alcoholics may be due to a genetic or environmental effect, or both, related to reduced brain growth. “Although ICV is known to be influenced primarily by genetic factors,” said Hommer, “many studies have found that living in an enriched environment promotes central nervous system growth and development. It seems likely that alcoholics, in general, are raised in less than optimal environments and thus that genetics and environment both contribute to the smaller ICV observed in family history positive alcoholics.” The authors report that ICV of women, but not men, in the study appeared to be affected more by their mothers’ drinking than their fathers’, perhaps due to a greater maternal influence on a child’s nutritional, social, and intellectual environment. None of the participants in the study were diagnosed with fetal alcohol syndrome. “It is possible that some participants might have experienced subtle fetal alcohol effects,” noted Hommer. “However, there were no differences between the effects of maternal and paternal drinking on ICV of men in our study. Thus, fetal alcohol effects do not appear to account for the reduced ICV we saw in men with a positive family history for drinking. Future studies should determine more precisely how parental drinking affects brain size among children of alcoholics and whether smaller ICV is a more specific risk factor for the development of alcohol dependence than family history.”

EDUCATION

BBB warns of fee requests for high-paying jobs The advertisers offer, for a fee, to help job seekers find, train and apply for a highpaying job in the federal government. Some of the advertisers try to confuse consumers by using an official-sounding name, like “The Federal Employment Service.” Consumers should know that information about job vacancies with any federal agency is freely available from the federal government. Federal agencies and the U.S. Postal Service never charge application fees, sell study guides for job tests, or guarantee that an applicant will be hired. If positions require a competitive examination – and many do not – the federal agencies doing the hiring usually offer free sample questions to applicants who sign up for the exam. If a job seeker responds to such an ad, he or she is likely to pay more than $100, and will receive, in return, printed material with generic information, which is available, at no charge, from the Postal Service and from some public libraries. To help you recognize bogus postal job listings and other federal job scams, the Better Business Bureau suggests you steer clear of suspicious advertisements that: • Offer information about “hidden” or “unadvertised” federal jobs. • “Guarantee” placement in a job or offer “too good to be true” wages. • Refer to a toll-free phone number. If you call, the operator is likely to encourage you to buy a “valuable” booklet containing job listings, practice test questions and tips for entrance exams. All of this information is available for free from the hiring agency. • Imply an affiliation with the federal government, guarantee high test scores or claim that “no experience” or “no special skills” are needed to quality. The Better Business Bureau suggests that job-seekers save their time and money and contact their employment office to see if postal jobs are available in their area and to obtain the necessary application form. If you have questions about a company's advertisement for employment services, the Better Business Bureau at 330-744-3111 or www.youngstownbbb.org. Compiled from local reports.

YSU receives grant for summer STEM program The academies are part of Ohio’s T ongoing efforts to increase the

he Ohio Board of Regents has approved a $340,000 grant to develop a summer program at Youngstown State University to help prepare high school students for teaching careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The Lake-to-River T4 (Teaching Tomorrow’s Teachers Today) Summer STEM Academy is a partnership with Kent State University’s regional campuses and Jefferson Community College. It is among 10 Regents STEM and Foreign Language Academies approved by OBOR in early February. “It’s a dynamite program,” said G. Jay Kerns, assistant professor of mathematics and statistics at YSU. “It’s an incredible opportunity for these students.” The summer academies are in response to House Bill 115, which appropriated funds to better prepare high school students for college and work and to increase the number of teachers in STEM and foreign language fields. The YSU academy will include 80 high school students from Mahoning, Trumbull, Columbiana, Ashtabula and Jefferson counties. Students will participate in a two-week residential program at YSU in June, where they will take classes in

number of students entering STEM fields. Nationally, the number of jobs in STEM fields is growing at five times the rate of other occupations. statistics, biology and chemistry, Kerns said. Students will earn both high school and college credit for the classes, which are offered free of charge. Participating students also will receive a free laptop computer. Students will continue various activities after the two-week residential program, culminating with a STEM Conference in the fall, Kerns said. In the end, the academies hope to encourage students to consider careers in teaching on the high school level in STEM and foreign language fields. Deadline for applications is April 27. For more information, visit the Summer STEM Academy web site at http://www.stemacademy.ysu.edu/. Questions can be e-mailed to stemacademy@ysu.edu, or call Karla Krodel, director of the YSU Metro College

credit program, at 330-941-2464. The academies are part of Ohio’s ongoing efforts to increase the number of students entering STEM fields. Nationally, the number of jobs in STEM fields is growing at five times the rate of other occupations, according to the Council on Competitiveness, yet the number of Americans receiving college degrees in STEM fields is on the decline. Ohio currently ranks 36th in the nation in the percentage of undergraduate students earning degrees in STEM fields, according to the Ohio Research Experiences to Enhance Learning. The Business Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies, and associated national groups recently released a report that calls for doubling the number of STEM college graduates by 2015. To meet this goal, Ohio colleges and universities must graduate 16,660 science and engineering students in 2015, up from 8,330 graduates. In response to the increased attention on STEM, YSU is reorganizing its academic structure and creating a college specifically dedicated to the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The new STEM college is expected to be in place in time for the start of the fall 2007 semester.

RESTAURANTS February wine tastes take chill off winter F

ebruary may be the shortest month, but it was long on wine events this year. My first tasting took me to the Springfield Grille in Boardman. This event was hosted by Heidelberg Wines, and I was quite impressed with their selections. The first course of sashimi tuna with chilled and spicy chutneys was paired with the German “Clean Slate” 2005 Riesling. This Mosel white offered lots of crisp fruit flavors and a taut, mineralladen finish. The Pillar Box Red 2005 from Australia proved a perfect match for the homemade crepe with butternut squash stuffing and pilliard of filet drizzled in a Cabernet reduction. This Aussie red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (32 percent), Shiraz (57 percent) and Merlot (11 percent). Smooth fruit flavors are followed by a smoky finished tinged with mocha and spice. The dessert course of imported cheeses, figs and chocolates was served with the Earthquake 2004 Red Zinfandel from Lodi, Calif. This flavorful big-framed Zin just oozes jammy dark fruit flavors followed by an extra-long finish of raisins and spice. The next event was the 2007 Reds, Whites and Blues Children’s Rehab

benefit wine tasting at Avalon Inn in Howland. Once again, the Avalon staff presented an excellent assortment of food offerings to go along with the special wines. Herb-skewered shrimp, mashed potato martinis with toppings of hot sausage, curried shrimp, crème fraiche, caramelized onions, and smoked bacon and chives, fire roasted veggies, slow-roasted turkey, pepper and coriander-crusted top sirloin were served with assorted cheeses, fruits and dessert displays. Following is a list of wines that really stood out at this tasting. The Chateau St. Michelle Cold Creek Vineyard 2004 Chardonnay offered gobs of crisp Cha-

blis-like citrusy fruit flavors followed by a long, clean finish. It paired well with the herb-skewered shrimp. Another fine Chardonnay was the Marquee Classic 2004 from Victoria, Australia. This Wine Spectator Best Buy (86 points) wine showed lots of citrusy fruit flavors followed by a light

oak-tinged finish. The slow-roasted turkey paired well with this snappy down-under Chardonnay. My last white selection hails from the Burgundy region of France. The Moillard 2005 Bourgogne Tradition is a real mouthful of Chardonnay. At under $20 a bottle, this is a great introduction to fine Burgundy. Crisp fruit flavors are followed by a subtle long finish that seems to last forever. Avalon’s fire-roasted veggies and cheeses matched well with this fine white Burgundy. The Trincherno 2004 Chicken Ranch Cabernet was my first red selection. This Rutherford Bench Napa Cab is simply delicious, easily comparing to other wines costing two and a half times its asking price of $25. Classic Cabernet fruit flavors give way to a cocoa and coffee tinged finish that

just lasts forever. The top sirloin was just right with this classic Napa Cab. Let’s go Down Under for the next red selection. The Wishing Tree Shiraz 2004 from west and south Australia just overflows with dark berry fruit and a finish of blackberries and white pepper. At $9.99, this is quite a bargain. The MacMurray Ranch Pinot Noir 2005 from Sonoma is another affordable red that everyone should try. Cherry and berry fruit flavors are followed by a clean finish of light oak and spice. This red seemed to go well with everything offered. Special thanks to the Avalon Inn and Mike Scannell from Tri-County Distributors for arranging a fine group of wines for this benefit. The next tasting took me to Alberini’s Restaurant in Niles for Chookie’s “Fat Friday” New Orleans Wine Tasting. It’s hard to believe, but Alberini’s is entering its 50th year of business. This renowned fine food establishment has been a regular stop for anyone seeking great wine and food. (My son practically grew up in their dining room while I wined and SEE WINE GUY, PAGE 36

THE METRO MONTHLY MARCH 2007

WINE GUY, FROM PAGE 15

dined there, and nearly 30 years later, he still has fond memories of Richard, Chookie and the rest of the staff.) For this tasting, Chookie prepared a great array of food, and this is just a short list of what was offered: wood-smoked salmon, crawfish cakes with roasted red pepper remoulade, fried oysters, shrimp gumbo, muffuletta pizza, roasted prime rib, andouille sausage, and assorted cheese and antipasto tray. Starting off, I found the Franciscan 2004 Chardonnay to be just as refreshing as past vintages. This reliable Chardonnay is a textbook example of how good California Chardonnay can be. Lively fruit flavors give way to a creamy finish of coconut and spice. The shrimp gumbo was a fine match for this California white. My next white hails from Portugal. The Auratus 2005 Vinho Minho is a blend of indigenous Alvarinho and Tragadura grapes. Fresh and crisp fruit flavors are followed by a full lemon-tinged finish. This lively white seemed to go with everything Chookie offered. My first red selection was the Altos-LasHormigas 2006 Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina. This is another great Marc DeGrazia wine, and at $10.99 a bottle, it’s a real steal. Bold dark fruit flavors are followed by a long finish of spice and berries. The andouille sausage was my favorite with this fine Argentine red. Another red selection was the Carneros Creek 2004 Las Carneros Pinot Noir.

Simply stated, at $24 a bottle, this is the finest Pinot I’ve tasted in a long time. Made from four vineyards located in the Napa and Sonoma Carneros regions, this undervalued wine offers gobs of raspberry, strawberry and spice flavors followed by an extremely long, creamy finish. If this was from an appellation (specific growing region) in Burgundy, France, it would easily sell for $75 and up a bottle. For you Pinot Noir fanatics, this is a must-have bottle for your cellar. Congratulations to Alberini’s on 50 great years of food and wine presentation and appreciation in the Mahoning Valley. Moving along to the retail store tastings, the Second Saturday taste at Michael Charles in Warren yielded the finely crafted Vega Sindoa 2005 Chardonnay ($14.99) from the Navarra region of Spain. Nicely oaked in a Spanish way, this Chardonnay is quite attractive. Citrus and peach flavors give way to a long finish that would go very nicely with an entrée of shellfish in a lemon butter sauce. Let’s move along to western Australia and sample the Omrah Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 ($14.99). This is another good example of Australian winemaking at its best. Dark fruit flavors and a finish of spicy oak round out this fine wine. At Vintage Estate Wine and Beer’s monthly Saturday tasting in Boardman, I found the KWV Steen 2004 ($8.99) from the western cape of South Africa to be outstanding. This textbook Chenin Blanc has an interesting bouquet of mown hay and flowers with gobs of fresh fruit flavors. If you are looking for a change of pace from cookie-cutter Chardonnays, this might be

Fat Bastard Chardonnay, 2005

just right for you. My next selection hails from Spain; the Equis 2004 ($9.99) features a blend of most Bobal (a grape indigenous to Spain) and a smattering of other varieties. Deeply colored and medium bodied, this delicious wine finishes with gentle tannins and a lingering finish of berries. At the Upstairs Thursday Night Flight tasting at the Wine Down bar in Austintown, my first selection was the Fat Bastard Chardonnay 2005 from the south of France. This inexpensive white is just right for the budget-minded wine drinker. Crisp and toasty, this is a great choice for summertime outings and barbecues. My next white originates in the Finger Lakes of New York. The Standing Stone Riesling 2005 is grown on limestone-rich soil and has rich apricot fruit flavors balanced by crisp acidity. This definitive Riesling easily compares to wines in Germany at twice the price. Moving along to my first red selection, let’s hop over to Berlin Center and try the Mastropietro Winery’s Chambourcin Selection. This French-American hybrid wine is simply delicious in winemaker Dan Mastropietro’s rendition. Deeply colored with lots of dark raspberry fruit flavors, it has a long fruit-tinged finish. Mastropietro also makes an array of other wines you might find interesting. For information about the winery, go to www.mastropietrowinery.com or call 330-547-2151. My next selection is the Tres Picos Borsao 2005 Garnacha from Spain. Old vine mountain-grown Grenache grapes with a low yield of less than two tons an acre produce a stunning wine of great power and finesse. If you like old vine Zins from California, this Spanish red should be good choice for you too. My last selection is the Chateau St. Jean Pinot Noir 2004. Fruit from the Carneros and Russian River Valley regions produce an engaging wine with lots of upfront fruit flavors followed by a subtle smooth finish. Thanks to all who made February wine events so great in the Valley.
