CALIFORNIA WINES ARE GOOD
Critical Comments on the Chicago Exhibits by a
Famous British Expert.
• Chicago, Nov. 15.— The following re
port 19 made by Charles F. Oldliam. the
. . expert appointed by the British Commis
• sion to test California wines and brandies
• exhibited at the World's Columbian Ex
:: position. While the British Commission
. has Dot yet officially passed upon this re
port, it is to all intents and purposes an
official one, and it is the result of earnest
work by C. A. Wetmore and the State
: Viticultural Commission on behalf of Cali
The wines and brandies submitted for
examination included 370 samples, com
. prising product* from nfty-luree differed
.' individuals and firms, classified as follows:
■;. ' . Dry white wines— Sixty-four samples
. described as of Ehunish type, 43 of bau
\ terne, 11 of White Burgundy, 6 uilscel
■ laneous of various styles.
. = Dry red wines— Thirty samples of Me
doc type, 24 of Burgundy, 53 miscellaneous,
."■ Clarets of various styles.
.bweet or fortified wines— Twenty-nine
■ " ' samples of Port type, 20 of Sherry, 30 mis
' cellaneous of various styles.
• • ' Sparkling wines — Five samples described
- - -as fermented in bottle, according to French
• methods of Champagne making.
. ' ' Brandies. — Forty-one samples of various
■ makes and ages.
• • (1.) Evidences of purity.— From careful

• '. (2.) Indications of intelligent supervision
, 0.1 the primary operations of fermentation
■and distillation.— was particularly struck
• • with the excellent manner in which nearly
.all the white nines seem to have been fer
'• mented. One or two, I should Bay. had
' been left a little two long on their skins,
• • and consequently are somewhat deeper in
color than la desirable, but with the excep
tion of these, the fermentations appear to i
•have been excellent. The majority of the I
'. red wine- show, also, that they must have
. . been well cared for in this particular.
With regard to the brandies, nearly the
. whole of them appear to have been well
.•: and carefully distilled.
. • (3.) Indications of methods of maturing;
.-' ana preparing for bottling. — Most of the
=white winea have, undoubtedly, been well
.'. laud carefully matured in wood, but a few,
lam led to think, most have been left too
long in cask or kept in a hot and dry
■=- cellar, the consequence being that they are
' of .rather too deep a color and have a
' ' .slightly sherry taste.
. •"' Probably nearly all these wine* were
.' 'good when first made, and the defects
which some of them now show may be
attributed to faults in maturing while in
feome of the native wines had evidently
au exress of albumen when they were bot
tled, as evinced by the deposit thrown. A
large number were, however, brought into
excellent condition for bttling, and have
•in consequence kept perfectly brilliant.
The maturing in wood of some of the
red wines does not appear to me to have
been so satisfactory as in the case of trie
white. Many of the red wines have no
doubt been carefully matured in cool cel
lars and in sm-tll packages, but others again
liave the appearance of having been kept
in Urge vats In a hot and uneven temper
ature, lam induced to think that nearly
all the red wines must hnve Deen good
when young and probably for a year after,
and that the defects now evinced by some
of them are due to the want of good, cool,
underground celiarage, where an even
temperature can be maintained, or to hav
ing been kept in large vats, as alluded to
above. Undoubtedly, also, a few of the
red wines had been left too long in wood
before bottling. With these few excep
tions the red wines show great merit, and
many of those classified under Medoc types
are really very excellent.
(4) Evidence! of skill in bottling.— By far
the greater majority of the sampler sub
mitted showed that great care had been
taken in this important particular. In a
few crises I found that the dry red and
white wines bad not been filled up as
close to the cork as, in my opinion, is de
(5) Evidences of critical Knowledge in
the classification of wines, as shown by
names adopted to describe various types.—
As a rule California wine producers seem
to have aimed at following the European
types as closely as possible, and as they
grew European varieties of grape* almost
exclusively they describe their wines ac
cordingly; tn&t la to say, a wine made
from b^uterne grapes is described by them
af being of Sauterne type, and so on. In
some instances, however, sufficient care
does not seem to have been exercised in
(6) Style of bottles, label*, etc.— The Eu
ropean btyle of bottles hag most generally
been used. For instance, wines described
as of Claret type have been put into I
French Claret bottles. Burgundy into the
ordinary French Burgundy bottle. Hock
into tbe German Hock bottle and S»u
terne into the white Fiench bottle.
Among the Port, Sherry, Brandy and
sweet wine types this uniformity has not
been equally maintained. In most in
stances the bottles have been v<*ry nicely
gotten up, bearing n»*at, plain labe!« — cap
sules being generally used, although in a
few cases wax has been put in their places.
I would here remark that it must be
borne in mind that tuese criticisms are
based upon standards of quality, such as
would, I think, be most likely to find favor
in r British market It is quite probable,
however, that in the American markets
such criticisms might not at all apply.
I think it right to mention that I was, to
some extent, aided In my examination of
these wines by tha fact that nearly all the
wine districts in California are well
known to me and that I have for some
ypitrs now been making a careful study of
their produce. The wines of California
must not be confounded with other Amer
ican wines, made east of the Rocky Moun
taius, where, I believe, nothing but native
American vines are grown. In California,
owinz to tbe suitable soil and beautiful
climate, ail tbe finest European varieties
are grown in great perfection, and as they
bear there in a very luxuriant manner
there is little temptation to make wine of
anything but the juice, of the grape. The
annual quantity made now is about 20,000,
--000 gallons. A very much larger amount,

Among the claret and Sauterne type* ex
hibited were several important samples
submitted by Charles Wetmore, but owing
to the fact that Mr. Wetmore was ap
pointed by the Viticultural Commission to
arrange for this examination he requested
that his samples should not be reported on.
The samples were all tasted without my
knowing at the time by whm exhibited.
The examination was made by number*,
and not by names, the key to them being
given me when all "tasting" was finished,
in order that I might place "comments"
against the exhibitors' names.
Professor Wiley, chief chemist of the
Agricultural Department of the United
States, kindly assisted nt the examination.

"I haven't anythinz in the house except
some bread and corubt-ef. Do yon want
some of that V"
"No," he said sadly. "I guess I'll move
on. It 'ud be a pity ter wnste sufh a fine
appetite on sech poor victuals."—Wash

A Healthy Woman
Never has the blues.
Nor that "don't-care n or

She is always happy.
No painful female com-
plaints crush out her life. No
ovarian troubles, inflammation
or ulceration, no spinal weak*
ness, no fainting, no bloating.
She is never melancholy, irri-
table, excitable, nervous, dizzy,
or troubled with sleeplessness
and fainting spells.

toms named ? Beware of the
