Watson/Tressel facility taking shape at YSU BY TYLER LANDIS

NEWS

METRO MONTHLY STAFF WRITER

DIGEST

T

he Watson and Tressel Training Site was announced in the summer of 2007 and three years later, the new sports facility at Youngstown State University is inching toward completion. The $12.3-million building is named after the Tressel and Watson families, who presented the university with a $1 million donation in 2007. The 125,000-square-foot facility will be a center for YSU Penguins football and the entire athletic department. In addition, the enclosed building will provide an allweather location for athletic training and community sporting events. Since the YSU facility will be used primarily for Penguins football, it’s helpful to measure the building’s footprint in yards: 82 by 170. WATTS, as it is being called, is located on the north side of campus near the Madison Avenue Expressway. The main entrance will be off Elm Street at the southwest corner of the building. With 40 percent of the building completed at press time, the facility’s approximate completion date is set for Jan. 15, 2011. Work is presently being done on the building’s metal roof, walls and locker rooms. The facility will accommodate intramural and club sports, as well as providing access to numerous sport camps. The building also will serve as practice areas for soccer, men’s and women’s track and field, baseball, and softball. The surface of the football field will be artificial turf, signifying no major change from the field at Stambaugh Stadium. The ticket office will remain at Stambaugh. WATTS will include a full-length football field and a number of other amenities. Some include a 300-meter indoor track, two batting cages (with room for expansion), two long-jump pits, one high-jump pit, and a training room. The facility will include

showers and locker rooms for athletes. Removable spectator seating is planned, but a seating capacity has not been announced. “It’s undecided at this time whether YSU classes will be held at WATTS,” said YSU Athletic Business Manager Matt Marone. Area high schools will have access to WATTS, but no formal plans have been arranged. An estimated $4 million has been raised so

far in the building’s name, but naming rights for smaller parts of the building are available. “There’s an opportunity to still own various names and components,” said John Hyden, YSU executive director of facilities. The primary architect is MS Consultants, with Hively Construction, Dickey Electric, York Mahoning, and Antenucci Plumbing as subcontractors. (Officials from Hively Construction set the last piece of steel on the building’s frame on Oct. 2. ) The building will have a unique look, with a block-letter Y planned for both gable ends of the building. The red Y logo will be 20-feet tall and lighted with LED (light-emitting diode) technology. “Current plans for parking are across the bridge by the dorms. In the near future, we’re looking to relocate the tennis courts that are directly across the street from the indoor facility and turn that into parking,” Marone said. For sporting events, traveling teams and their buses will be dropped off at WATTS and then moved to another location for parking.

he Lemon Grove, in conjunction with Peace Action/Youngstown, will host a fund raiser for the Peace House from 6-11 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 14 at the Lemon Grove in downtown Youngstown. The event seeks to raise funds for the Peace House and aid its continued operations. The center, located at 204 Broadway, houses the local chapter of Peace Action for a Sane World. The event will showcase the blues, rock and jazz of recognized local legend “Stage” Hardrick, who will perform on the Hammond B-3 organ with some of the best musicians in the region. (A film documentary by Christopher Strollo on “Stage” will be shown at 6:30 p.m.) The evening includes a silent auction and a raffle. Admission is $10 per person, $8 for peace activists and seniors, and $6 for students. To reserve seats in advance, call 330-744-7683. The Lemon Grove is located at 122 W. Federal St. The phone number is 330-744-7683.

HSL foundation grants McDonald agency $5,000

T

he McDonald Community Chest, a local nonprofit agency in McDonald, Ohio, was recently presented with a check for $5,000 from the Home Savings Charitable Foundation. According to Joan Bako Miles, secretary, the McDonald Community Chest is an independent group that aids McDonald residents who are in need by issuing food vouchers to the local supermarket. It also works in conjunction with village officials, local church organizations and school representatives to provide assistance in extreme emergency situations. “Our organization is over 70 years old and is a respected part of the community,” she said. The organization also recently became affiliated with the Trumbull County Community Foundation and the Community Foundation of Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio, which will help to fulfill the fiduciary responsibilities associated with grants and donations connected with the McDonald Community Chest. Since 1998, the Home Savings Charitable Foundation has provided nearly $10 million of support to all communities served by Home Savings, a local community bank with offices throughout northern Ohio and western Pennsylvania.

The voices behind Rukus Radio in an undated photo (left to right): Trevor Quillan, Moe Angelo, Chris Rutushin and Jack Hughes.

Over the Internet and under the radar Scrappy broadcasters tune out corporate playlists with online radio station BY TYLER LANDIS METRO MONTHLY STAFF WRITER

W

ith a motto like “Blasting forth with complete disregard for the mainstream!” you’d think the minds behind Rukus Radio were a pack of crusaders looking to liberate Internet listeners everywhere. Quite the contrary. Moe Angelo, Trevor Quillan, and Chris Rutushin have their own sense of style, but seem content with being ordinary guys with a huge passion for music. While their listeners may know them as Trevor Q and Moestrodamus, it was acoustic performer Trevor Quillan and Kelleys bassist Moe Angelo who got the ball rolling for Rukus Radio back in 2007 during a chance encounter at “Vex Fest IV,” an annual musical festival in downtown Youngstown. Shortly after, the two were recording podcasts and brewing an idea for a radio show. The result is a Youngstown-based Internet radio station that has been broadcasting free of FCC regulation for a few years now. The station has a singular identity. Each D.J. has their own distinctive style and sound, but everything played on the station is categorized under the umbrella of independent music. However, listeners won’t hear what is being played on most radio stations. Rukus’ mission is to expose

YOUNGSTOWN: THE NEXT GENERATION listeners to an eclectic variety of bands and musical genres. Quillan and Angelo take pride in the fact that the station can say or do whatever it wants. Because they are unencumbered by FCC regulation, that means just about anything goes. “We’re like the extended home show,” Quillan says. Angelo’s free spirited demeanor is what best embodies the themes and tropes of Rukus. “All these stations get playlists from above, we don’t have that,” Angelo says. Each show doesn’t consist of a tidy script or checklist of topics; it’s all very loose with its on-the-go approach. D.J. Rutushin’s show “Happy Hours,” airs every Monday from 9 to 11 p.m. and features interviews and music from indie artists who Rutushin has had shows with or met during his travels. “It’s about having fun and strays away from sad bastardly music,” Rutushin said. Angelo’s show, “Notes from the Underground,” is a multi-genre live program that features new releases. It airs every Wednesday from 9 to 11 p.m. “The Jam Band Breakfast,” hosted by Trevor Q, is the station’s daily morning show and primar-

ily focuses on all aspects of the “jamband” genre. It airs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until noon. In addition, “The Rukus Roundtable” airs every Sunday from 9 to 11p.m. and features a discussion forum and a revolving cast of characters. “Chris [Rutushin] does a fantastic job of knowing what he’s doing the entire show, where I tend to wing it a little more often. It all goes to show the acceptance that anything and everything is O.K.,” Angelo said. Quillan’s on-air style is similar to Angelo’s: He lets the vibe of the day lead the show. “When I get up, I sit in the captain’s chair and just go from there. The first song I choose dictates the rest of the show,” Quillan said. Sitting with these guys is like getting a musical and a geek education all at once. “Star Wars” references are spat from all three at a dizzying speed. True to their indie-music focus, each dons a T-shirt with the name of a less-realized band. Their laid-back chemistry and keen insight into each other’s refined taste is what makes one believe that Rukus will be around as long as these guys are friends. In terms of where Rukus can go in the future, signs point upward. “We definitely have plans to make it grow; we’re constantly adding people and content,” said Angelo. Quillan said they were definitely not running at full capacity, describing the station as a “duct-tape

operation.” “If we wanted to full out blast this thing, it’d probably cost us a couple thousand a month,” Quillan said. For now, running the station and having other jobs keeps the guys busy. “We’re working jobs to try to build a job,” Quillan said. With future plans to expand the station, the men behind Rukus realize that it’ll get more expensive. However, Quillan is tickled by the idea that they’re able to run the station for very little right now, prompting Rutushin to jump in and advise Quillan not to pull back the curtain. Still, Rukus boasts a modest – but increasing – following on their site.” It’s our own social network, our version of MySpace or Facebook,” Quinlan said. “People can be a member for free which gives them the freedom to create a profile, chat, post blog entries, and upload music or videos.” The site had gone from zero members last May, to approximately 600. Although Rukus enjoys exposing listeners to their favorite bands, the guys remain snake-bitten over the lack of support they’ve received from some local bands. “We’ve done our fair share of promoting Youngstown,” Angelo says, but admits that the response could be a lot better.

Forgetfulness - 7 types of memory problems explained FROM THE HARVARD HEALTH LETTER

I

t’s normal to forget things from time to time, and it’s normal to become somewhat more forgetful as you age, but it’s not normal to forget too much. But how much forgetfulness is too much? How can you tell whether your memory lapses are within the scope of normal aging or are a symptom of something more serious? Healthy people can experience memory loss or memory distortion at any age. Some of these memory flaws become more pronounced with age, but — unless they are extreme and persistent — they are not considered indicators of Alzheimer’s or other memory-impairing illnesses.

Normal memory problems Transience - This is the tendency to forget facts or events over time. You are most likely to forget information soon after you learn it. However, memory has a use-it-or-lose-it quality: memories that are called up and used frequently are least likely to be forgotten. Although transience might seem like a sign of memory weakness, brain scientists regard it as beneficial because it clears the brain of unused memories, making way for newer, more useful ones. Absentmindedness – This type of forgetting occurs when you don’t pay close enough attention. You forget where you just put your pen because you didn’t focus on where you put it in the first place. You were thinking of something else (or, perhaps, nothing in particular), so your brain didn’t encode the information securely. Absentmindedness also involves forgetting to do something at a

these details. Although little is known about exactly how suggestibility works in the brain, the suggestion fools your mind into thinking it’s a real memory. Bias – Even the sharpest memory isn’t a flawless snapshot of reality. In your memory, your perceptions are filtered by your personal biases — experiences, beliefs, prior knowledge, and even your mood at the moment. Your biases affect your perceptions and experiences when they’re being encoded in your brain. And when you retrieve a memory, your mood and other biases at that moment can influence what information you actually recall. Although everyone’s attitudes and preconceived notions bias their memories, there’s been virtually no research on the brain mechanisms behind memory bias or whether it becomes more common with age.

prescribed time, like taking your medicine or keeping an appointment. Blocking – Someone asks you a question and the answer is right on the tip of your tongue — you know that you know it, but you just can’t think of it. This is perhaps the most familiar example of blocking, the temporary inability to retrieve a memory. In many cases, the barrier is a memory similar to the one you’re looking for, and you retrieve the wrong one. This competing memory is so intrusive that you can’t think of the memory you want. A common example is calling your older son by your younger son’s name, or vice versa. Scientists think that memory blocks become more common with age and that they account for the trouble older people have remembering other people’s names. Research shows that people are able to retrieve about half of the blocked memories within just a minute. Misattribution – Misattribution occurs when you remember something accurately in part, but misattribute some detail, like the time, place, or person involved. Another kind of misattribution occurs when you believe a thought you had was totally original when, in fact, it came from something you had previously read or heard but had forgotten about. This sort of misattribution explains cases of unintentional plagiarism, in which a writer passes off some information as original when he or she actually read it somewhere before. As with several other kinds of memory lapses, misattribution becomes more common with age. Age matters in at least two ways. First, as you age, you absorb fewer details when acquiring information because you have somewhat more trouble concen-

trating and processing information rapidly. Second, as you grow older, your memories grow older as well. And old memories are especially prone to misattribution. Suggestibility – Suggestibility is the vulnerability of your memory to the power of suggestion — information that you learn about an occurrence after the fact becomes incorporated into your memory of the incident, even though you did not experience

Program covers cosmetics during chemotherapy

T

he American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Better program is for women of all ages, races and backgrounds who are concerned about their appearance while they undergo cancer treatment. Chemotherapy, radiation and other forms of treatment may change a woman’s hair, complexion and nails. “The name of this free service sums up its purpose,” said Al Stabilito, Northeast Ohio Public Relations Director of the American Cancer Society. “Chemotherapy and radiation are necessary at times to treat cancer, but it may cause a woman to be concerned about her appearance.” There are two sessions that will be held in November. The first is from 6-8 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 8, at St. Joseph Cancer Care Center, 667 Eastland Ave., Warren. The second one is from 10 a.m. –noon on Tuesday, Nov. 16, at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, 8401 Market St., Boardman.

Persistence – Most people worry about forgetting things. But in some cases people are tormented by memories they wish they could forget, but can’t. The persistence of memories of traumatic events, negative feelings, and ongoing fears is another form of memory problem. Some of these memories accurately reflect horrifying events, while others may be negative distortions of reality. People suffering from depression are particularly prone to having persistent, disturbing memories. So are people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD can result from many different forms of traumatic exposure — for example, sexual abuse or wartime experiences. Flashbacks, which are persistent, intrusive memories of the traumatic event, are a core feature of PTSD. © 2010, The Harvard Health Letter.Used with permission.

Look Good Feel Better is a two-hour class that teaches women how to regain the confidence they had before treatment began by improving their physical appearance. Licensed and trained cosmetologists provide helpful techniques so a woman does not have to be concerned about the way she looks because of her treatment. All cosmetology volunteers attend a four-hour certification class to become a Look Good Feel Better instructor. “The emotional impact of having to deal with cancer is enough; let alone having to worry about how to make your physical appearance look presentable,” Stabilito added. “We want every woman to know this program is available at no charge, regardless of where she lives or the type of cancer she has.” Participants receive a complimentary kit of cosmetics and beauty supplies from reputable, well-known companies. In all, more than 20 companies donate products to this program. Each cosmetic kit is shrink wrapped and new. Never opened cosmetics are used.

WINE & DINE Chosing wines for holiday celebrations: Page 17

Not your average Bacchanalian celebration L ast month was chock full of interesting wine and beer events. My first wine event took me to Austintown to attend and help judge homemade wines at the annual Bacchanalia Festival held at Patricia and Amico Mariani’s beautiful home. I’m always excited to attend this event, as I look forward to sampling wines that were made from grapes crushed at the previous year’s event. This fun event is also educational, as it shows how numerous wine makers, using exactly the same source of grapes, can elevate wine to their own distinct styles. More than 300 people were present at this year’s crush, coming from all over the country and even Canada to join in the celebration. As in previous festivals, the selection of home-prepared covered plates and dishes was mind-boggling. The food is just as diverse as the wines at this creative event. Three hundred sixty pounds of Merlot grapes were crushed this year by beautiful young ladies of all ages, gently stomping the delicious juice from the plump grape bunches. Merlot was a fine choice, as it yields a soft mellow berry-scented red that everyone can enjoy. The winner of this year’s contest was Mario Diullo. His aromatic red seemed to appeal to a broad cross-section of guests. Coming in second was Linda Perry, with an equally enjoyable wine that also scored well with the crowd. Sue Cabbot’s and Fernando Riccioni’s wines tied for third place. I was particularly fond of Riccioni’s wine because of its more robust nature among all the wines presented. His red will certainly get better with more time in the bottle. As mentioned, I was intrigued by how four people could produce four distinctly different wines from exactly the same juice source. This diversity is why the home winemaking pastime is so popular in this area. Vive la difference! Once again, I want to thank the Marianis for inviting me to their little slice of Italy and providing a weekend of fun that transports guests to the old country. From the torch-laden yet whimsical ceremony crowning this year’s high priestess to the stomping and pressing of grapes amid a European atmosphere of family fun—this wonderful annual event defies description. Be sure to watch for an upcoming episode of “Metro Monthly EXP,” a new television show from the Metro Monthly that will be airing in early 2011. You’ll see the splendor of Bacchanalia first-hand on the TV program. My second stop took me to the Coun-

coming in second was Jim DiBacco, who submitted a structured red that will only get better with time. Dark stone fruit flavors followed by a finish of sweet spicy tannins will ensure this wine a long life. Tied for third place were Lou Saivone and Ed Goldner. Saivone’s red was chock full with berry flavors and spice. This well-crafted wine was very easy to drink and went well with all the foods offered. Goldner’s wine featured mediumbodied berry and spice fruit flavors, and a finish of sweet scented tannins. There is a high quality of home wine making in this Valley, and this Columbus Day METRO MONTHLY ELECTRONIC IMAGE | MARK C.

from Napa Valley ($61.99). Finally, there is an alternative to the hard-to-find and high-priced wines from this tiny Bordeaux region. The Synchrony is a blend of 56 percent of Cabernet Franc, 38 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 4.5 percent Merlot, and 1.5 percent Malbec. Using 85 percent new French oak, this medium-bodied Napa red produces lush smoke-tinged berry flavors leading to a smooth finish scented with cedar and tar. I would be hard pressed to pick this fine Napa red out from its much more expensive Bordeaux brethren. My final pick was Krupp’s 2006 “The Doctor” from Napa Valley ($84.99). This interesting Napa-style field blend of 37 percent Tempranillo, 28 percent Merlot, 21 percent Malbec, and 14 percent Cabernet Sauvignon is just plain delicious. There are wines in our market selling for twice this wine’s cost, and I can’t believe they would provide any more enjoyment. Complex aromas of floral spice-tinged cherries lead to textured flavors of dark plums and berries. Krupp’s “The Doctor” reminds me of a specialedition Gran Reserva Rioja from Spain, at a fraction of the price. For a change of pace, I attended the Howland Fall Festival. A group of local winery owners were there to sample out their wines. I was happy to see my old friend Dan Mastropietro pouring his newest-release Cabernet Sauvignon. Vintage after vintage, his wines continue to gain strength and improve. The newest Cab is just brimming with dark cherry flavors, finishing long and clean with hints of mocha and spice. If you’re looking for a reasonably-priced red for the holidays, this would be a great choice. The next two wineries are new to me, and I was pleasantly surprised by their offerings. Myrddin Vineyards and Winery of Lake Milton gave me a sample of their Sorcerer’s White to try. This delicious fruity off-dry white is made from 100 percent Traminette grapes (American hybrid). Light bodied with fresh fruit flavors, this is a nice wine for summer parties and would also be interesting with upcoming holiday fare.

At the next booth, I sampled the Cortland Wine Cellars’ fine range of wines. Their Confident Man Malbec was

just plain delicious. Mellow soft fruit flavors and a stony dust-tinged finish had me asking for another sample. This is a pleasant, easy-drinking red that would be a welcome addition to lamb chops or just plain burgers hot off the grill. My last table featured wines from Howland’s Wine Styles store. My favorite was Laurello Vineyards’ Naso Bianco white table wine. Silky smooth with oodles of spicy citrus flavors, this is a great addition to a table of after-Thanksgiving leftovers. My second weekend in October took me to Michael Charles Premier Wines on Elm Road for their second Saturday wine taste. A white wine that really appealed to me was the 2008 Boxhead white ($13.99). I’ve previously reviewed their delicious Cabernet Sauvignon, and this fine blend of Chardonnay, Semillon, and Sauvignon Blanc is a fine counterpoint to their Cab. Crisp, clean upfront citrus flavors without a touch of oak to get in the way will be a good match for grilled chicken or locally caught pan-fried perch. Also being poured at this tasting was a selection from the new-to-the-area Sleight of Hand Vintners from Washington State. The Renegade Red Horse 2008 Heaven Hills Red Blend ($13.99) was just plain delicious.

A tasty blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, and Syrah, it exudes deep lush red fruit flavors and a fresh berry scented finish that goes on forever. It was a busy month at Michael Charles, and I returned for a premium beer tasting featuring nine different style beers that will go well with holiday food selections. The Lager style Atom Smasher from Two Brothers Brewery in Illinois is plain fun to drink. Crisp, very clean and with just a hint of hops, this Octoberfest-inspired brew is just the beer for the harvest season. If you’re looking for a robust dark beer that will go well with leg of lamb, give Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout a try. I’ve sampled this dark brooding stout before and I really enjoy the creamy espresso nose and finish SEE THE WINE GUY, PAGE 20

NEWS & TRENDS

Proposed law would affect shipping of wines

T

here’s been an important subject in the news lately that I want to address, and that is shipping wine in and out of Ohio. Right now, you are permitted to ship in 24 cases of wine per year for personal use. To do so, you are supposed to register with the state and pay all applicable excise taxes on the wine that you purchase from out of state. There is a federal law being considered (HR 5034) that will greatly reduce your ability to directly ship wine to your home residence. This law is being sponsored by wine and beer wholesalers nationwide, and personally, I don’t approve of it. I am an advocate of free trade, but that freedom needs to be tempered with fairness – and I don’t think that the proposed law is fair to my readers or Ohio winemakers.

This law will curtail individual Ohioans from purchasing wine from out-of-state wineries and stores and having it shipped to their residences. It has been four years since the Supreme Court’s ruling that eased direct shipping laws nationwide, and HR 5034 will nullify most of the rulings that made out-of-state shipping less complicated and more consumer friendly. For more information on this controversial topic, visit these informative Web sites: www. freethegrapes.org and www.com.ohio.gov/ liqr/DirectShipping.aspx. Since this is an evolving issue, I’ll keep you informed of any major changes as they develop.

OPEN WednesdaySaturday 8pm to 2:30am

s you can see, The Metro Monthly has expanded my column’s scope for this important holiday buying guide. The wines that I’ve chosen for this issue reflect my belief that you can obtain a great bottle of wine at a price that will keep your checkbook happy. All the wines in this issue are available locally at fine wine shops and most can be obtained at grocery stores such as Giant Eagle. The wine business has changed dramatically in the past few years. More frequent price reductions and post-offs (temporary sale prices) have become the rule instead of the exception. Wine price points have taken a nosedive, with wine buyers moving into the $15-and-under range with a vengeance. Fortunately, there is a wealth of exceptionally fine wine being introduced to satisfy the huge demand.

Since my column’s inception in 2004, I have promoted the fact that there is a bumper crop of great wine at the under$15 price point. My readers’ inquiries show that this is the direction that the wine business is headed in the future. There will always be a market for pricier wines, and I will also report on them. These upscale wines are also under pressure to set themselves apart from the pack. In every column, I have tried to introduce one or two that I think are exceptional values or unique to the wine world. There will always be room for specialoccasion wines for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and such. Today’s wine consumer truly lives in the “golden age” of wine; there are great values at every price point, and I hope my column helps you in your search for the perfect wine experience. – John Webster

Love of wine began with ’70s trip to Napa Valley

O

ver the years, quite a few readers have inquired as to how I became interested in wine. As a teenager, I traveled to California and visited Napa Valley in the early 1970s. This was a time of expansion in the California wine business, and I was captivated by its people and its uniqueness. Through the ‘70s and early ‘80s, I made wine a personal hobby, and proceeded to learn everything I could about it. If it weren’t for Alberini’s Restaurant in Niles, and in particular the late Richard Alberini with his knowledge and promotion of wine in this area, my love of wine would not be what it is today. I would go to his restaurant and sample many different styles of wine, and if I found one that I really cared about, I would purchase a bottle or two from him, and that’s how my collection started. I also haunted most of the area’s local wine shops for new discoveries. I didn’t just sample wines; I also read as much as possible about them. This was in an era before the Internet, and my collection now numbers over 400 books and journals. My hobby soon became a pas-

sion, and I couldn’t get enough of it and its rich history. The thing that has impressed me the most in the last 35 years is the number of fine people I have met. I was always full of questions, and looking back now, I must have been a real pest to some of the people I sought out for information – as mentioned, Richard Alberini; Lou and Randy at Lou’s Beer and Wine in Canfield; Pat O’Brien of Cleveland, and many more. The wine business is much larger now, but one thing hasn’t changed, and that’s the quality of the people involved in it. From winery owners and vintners to wine distributors and the legion of retailers and their loyal customers, I have met many hundreds of great people who may not agree on everything, but share a passion for fine wine. These are the people I reflect on when I write my monthly article. My column is a reflection of all these people and their personal dedication to this pastime, and I thank them all. – John Webster

Enhance holidays with these wonderful wines

L

et’s take a look at the holiday wines that should be on everyone’s table in the coming months. I’ve tried to choose wines that will go with a number of different holiday food offerings – turkey, roast chicken, pork loin, lamb, roast beef, ham, and seafood. You’ll be sure to find something appealing for your celebrations and get-togethers. Almost all these selections should be under $15 per bottle, and some will reflect a holiday sale price. Hope you enjoy!

WHITE WINES Loredona 2007-08 Monterey County Riesling. Citrus and apple flavors followed by a crisp smooth finish. Try this snappy wine with turkey breast or thinly sliced ham for a real treat. Wente 2007-08 Morning Fog Chardonnay. Crisp tropical fruit flavors and a creamy full finish should go well with a wide assortment of holiday fare. Slow-roasted pork loin or baked ham would be a nice pairing with this delightful Chardonnay. Treasure Hunter 2009 Chardonnay, Dry Creek Valley. Stainless steel fermented with crisp citrus flavors, this juicy Chardonnay has a lush, textured finish. Only 296 cases of this wine were produced, and it is just superb. Any white meat turkey, game hen or assortment of holiday seafood would be a good pairing for this Chardonnay. Four Vines 2008-09 Naked Chardonnay. Ultra-bright citrus flavors and a laser-like finish without a touch of oak make this Chardonnay a perfect choice for rich holiday foods such as slow-roasted game hen or salmon. Taft Street 2008-09 Gewurztraminer, Mendocino County. Exotic fruit flavors and a long finish compel you to try another glass of this spicy cool-climate white. Just about any holiday food pairing will go well with this delicious white wine. Botani 2008 Moscatel Seco (Dry), Malaga, Spain. Up-front fruit flavors of oranges and spice lead to a sunny, clean finish that should complement lighter holiday snacks such as afterThanksgiving turkey sandwiches and oven-warmed dressing.

ROSE WINES Everything Coming Up Rose 2007. Available at Wine Styles in Howland, this is an interesting blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a smattering of Gewurztraminer and Viognier tossed in for added spiciness. This distinctive rose should be just the answer for someone looking for a fruitdriven light wine. Thin-sliced ham and turkey with a dollop of cranberry sauce would make this wine sing.

RED WINES Zorzettig 2006 Cabernet Franc, Friuli, Italy. Textbook Cabernet Franc with smoke-tinged fruit flavors make this spicy red a shoo-in favorite for holiday fare. Pork loin drizzled with red wine

THE WINE GUY DINE WITH WINE and raisins should go hand in hand with this refreshing Cabernet Franc. Oxford Landing 2006-07 GSM, South Australia. This spicy bold cuvee of Grenache, Shiraz, and Mourvedre in a Chateauneuf-du-Pape style is another fine example of inexpensive red wine from South Australia that will pair nicely with rich dark meat turkey or roast lamb. Finca Resalo 2007 Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), Ribera de Duero, Spain (Denominacion de Origen). This classy Spanish red features supple red fruit flavors and a textured finish of smoketinged coffee. Dark meat turkey or slow-roasted leg of lamb would be my first choices to accompany this fine Spanish red. Renwood 2006 Barbera from the Sierra Foothills of California. Medium bodied with lush spice-tinged fruit flavors, this would be great with pork loin or roast goose. At under $10 a bottle, this valuepriced red should be on everyone’s holiday dinner table. Castle Rock 2009 Pinot Noir from Mendocino County, California. Light to medium-bodied, berry-tinged flavors lead to a fine crisp finish that should appeal to someone looking for a lighterstyle red for white meat turkey or thin sliced pork loin. Holiday baked salmon would also be a great choice for this Cote-du-Beaune-style Pinot Noir. Four Vines 2007-08 Old Vine Zinfandel from Lodi, Calif. Opulent plummy dark fruit flavors with a toasty mocha-tinged finish make this undervalued Lodi Zin a sure treat for a wide range of holiday fare. Dark meat turkey smothered in giblet gravy served with a glass of this Zin will make you think you are in heaven. Ivan Tomas Double Decker Red 2008 Estate Grown. This inexpensive cuvee of equal parts Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petite Sirah should be on everyone’s to-buy list for holiday get-togethers. I’ve sampled this red in a number of settings, and it’s always a crowd favorite. Italianstyle slow roasted turkey and stuffing will make a perfect pairing. Hayman and Hill 2007-08 Meritage, Monterey County, California. This is a sensational Bordeaux-style blend that drinks like a wine twice its price. Leg of lamb or rib roast would be just the ticket for this delicious structured red wine. Italo Cescon 2004 Raboso from Piave, Italy. This little-known red Italian grape variety produces a bold, structured wine that oozes dark red fruit flavors followed by a firm finish that will go well with rich flavored holiday fare such as rib roast or leg of lamb. I recommend this great value in wine. Tiera 2006 Zinfandel, Sonoma County Calif. A rare Bordeaux-style Zinfandel with oodles of perfumed fruit flavors and a long clean finish, this

should go well with just about anything found on a holiday dinner table. Mastropietro Chambourcin. Medium- to full-bodied with lush up-front fruit flavors, this locally produced (Berlin Center) red hybrid wine is a personal favorite of mine. Baked ham drizzled with maple syrup and sliced apples would be a classic partner to this spicy red. Peirano Estate Vineyards 2008 Immortal Zin from Lodi, Calif. This ungrafted Old Vine Zinfandel is a classic example of today’s bold, lush style of Zinfandel winemaking. Rich turkey and fixings would be just the answer for this tasty, over-the-top Zin. Ferrante 2008 Grand River Valley Signature Series Cabernet Franc. Cool-climate Cabernet Franc at its best, this Ohio-made red just oozes succulent fruit flavors followed by a smoky, spice-tinged finish that goes on forever. Standing rib roast, leg of lamb, or teriyaki salmon would be fine choices for this wine. Mantey Vineyards Blackberry Fruit Wine. This lush berry-scented fruit wine is just the answer for the sweet tooth in your wine group. It should also go surprisingly well with most holiday after-dinner treats or as a spritzer with club soda.

SPARKLING WINES Martini & Rossi Sparkling Rose. This off-dry inexpensive bubbly is just the answer for holiday mimosas and aperitifs. Try it with sliced turkey on toast sandwiches for a surprisingly festive lunch treat. Malvasia di Castelnuovo Don Bosco DOC from the Piedmont region of Italy. Reddish pink in color with frothy, tangy fruit flavors, this is a great choice for after-dinner chocolate desserts or dessert by itself. Risque Methode Ancestrale Sparkling Wine from France. This is a unique bubbly from France that comes in a cute package and is surprisingly fine for its price range. With crisp up-front fruit and an off-dry yeasty finish, this wine should go well with a host of holiday food offerings.

DESSERT WINES Portal Non-Vintage Duero Moscatel Dessert Wine. A grand treat for wine drinkers who think they’ve tasted everything. Spicy Muscat-tinged fruit flavors followed by a long off-dry clean finish make this a great afterdinner sipper to go with your desserts or coffees. Montevina Terra d’Oro Zinfandel Port, Amador County, Calif. At $17.99, this is an absolute bargain for after-dinner enjoyment. With bold, lush fruit flavors followed by a long, supple berry and vanillascented finish, this is just the answer for dark chocolate confections and a rich cup of coffee.

that it gives. Beef stew with harvest root vegetables is another fine dish that would go nicely with this beer. Wine Styles’ Discovery Night wine taste featured the outstanding Steele Wines from California. An unusual grape variety was used in the 2008 Shooting Star Blue Franc ($13.99), the Blaufrankich (Lemberger) grape is little known in the U.S., but the 2008 Shooting Star is bound to change that. Medium bodied with berry pie fruit flavors and a delightful finish, it should appeal to a wide range of palates. The hearty foods of Austria would be just the ticket for this classy red. My next pick was the Australian 2006 First Drop Two Percent Shiraz ($20.99) from the Barosso region. This highly rated red is a cuvee of 98 percent Shiraz and 2 percent Albarino. Yes, I said Albarino (best known for delicious Spanish whites). The Albarino is used for the same purpose as many French and Australian wine makers use Viognier. It gives a tasty floral note to the austere Barosso Shiraz (Syrah in France). This is a fine choice for someone on a budget who wants to give a special someone a very special wine. As mentioned in last month’s column, local wine expert Jim Howe and I have started a new wine tasting group called Wine and Dine Ohio, and I’m excited about the events we’re planning for you. Our first tasting is slated for Jan. 20, 2011 at Alberini’s Restaurant in Niles, and I’ll provide more information about the wines being offered in next month’s column. We’re also planning events at the Upstairs Restaurant and Five Points Wine Bar, among others. By the time you read this column, you’ve probably heard that Five Points temporarily closed while new owners prepare to reopen in time for the holiday season. Watch the December column for more details on our first tasting, or ask me when you see me at one of the regular Valley tastings. To get on our e-mail list for Wine and Dine Ohio event information, please send your e-mail address to jmwineguy@ gmail.com or call 330-651-8676 to provide your contact information. Stop in at Station Square on Belmont Avenue on Thursday-Saturday, Nov. 11-13 and 18-20 during dinnertime (6-9 p.m.). This should be a fun time, as I am looking forward to seeing many of my readers and fellow wine enthusiasts. I’ll be visiting tables to answer your wine questions or make recommendations personalized to your tastes and menu selections. Upcoming events include Angels for Animals Benefit Wine Taste on Saturday, Nov. 6, 7-10 p.m.; Michael Charles’ (Elm Road) Winemaker Dinner at Alberini’s in Niles, Wednesday, Nov. 10; Charlie’s Premier Wines of Howland, alternate Saturday tasting; Springfield Grille, call restaurant for monthly wine dinner details; Wine Styles, every Thursday and Friday; Vintage Estate, third Saturday tasting; Michael Charles Premier Wines on Elm Road, second Saturday tasting. I look forward to seeing you at wine events around the Valley. If you have a wine event you would like listed in this column, please send your information to thewineguy@metromonthly.net.

KITCHEN CLASSICS

GERMAN-STYLE APPLE PANCAKES RECIPE BY HELGA WENGLER This classic European-style pancake is easy to make and loaded with flavor. Helga will demonstrate how to make German-style apple pancakes during the upcoming season of “Homeplate,” which the Metro Monthly is currently producing for local television for 2011. In the meantime, enjoy this easy-tomake treat at home. Helga suggests grating the apples so they’ll blend better in the batter. She did that during the “Homeplate” taping and the result was a light, yet substantial, pancake.

HOW TO MAKE IT

WHAT YOU’LL NEED For pot pie filling:

• Using a serving spoon, scoop three spoonfuls of batter onto the frying pan.

1 1/2 lbs chicken (white and/or dark)

• Cook with medium heat until pancakes are golden brown; turn pancakes and brown on the second side.

1 1/2 Tsp olive oil

Makes 12 pancakes (3-4 inches in diameter).

½ Tsp baking powder

2 cups chicken stock 1 medium onion 3 medium carrots 2 small celery stalks (All vegetables should be cut medium dice into 1/4-inch pieces.) salt and black pepper

oil for pan frying

1/2 Tsp thyme leaves 3 Tsp chopped parsley 1/4 cup heavy cream

• Crumble shortening into flour until you get pea-size balls; incorporate water and roll between two pieces of wax paper and chill. Do not overwork the pie crust. For a more savory dough, halve the shortening and replace with unsalted butter (pastry quality). • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. After 2 minutes reduce to 350 degrees. • If using canned chicken stock, you may use a dutch oven for the chicken. I often make this recipe while a stock is reducing on the back burner. That way, I can poach all the vegetables while the chicken cooks. • Cut the chicken into medium-diced pieces after poaching for 8-10 minutes. Strain and save the stock. • Sauté vegetables in olive oil until they’re al denté (or retain a nice bite). • Remove vegetables. • Add butter and flour to a pan to make a basic roux. Cook till you get a blonde color; you may use the optional wine to deglaze the pan. Stirring constantly with a whisk. When mixture is smooth, remove from heat. • Mix with chicken and season to taste. Assemble with pastry on top and you may egg wash but it is not necessary. • Bake for 20-25 minutes in small individual containers or 30 minutes in a 4-6 serving dish. • Bake until golden brown and the sauce is bubbling. Makes 6-8 individual pot pies.
