A year ago at the Grand Prix of Baltimore, race car driver Will Power thought what he viewed as an illegal restart after a late yellow caution flag helped give Ryan Hunter-Reay a win on Pratt Street and ultimately the overall Izod IndyCar championship. It was one of a "million times" during the past 16 months when the circumstances seemed to conspire against Power since his last victory, in Brazil in April 2011. On Sunday at the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma, Power became the beneficiary of another controversial finish.

No doubt, a lot of open-wheel racing afficionados were shaking their heads after the Grand Prix of Baltimore turned into a demolition derby on Sunday, but the "chaos" that prevailed on the debris-strewn downtown course was just what the event needed to capture our admittedly primative imaginations. This is America. We don't like soccer. We don't like chess. We didn't even like real baseball until the steroid scandal shamed us back into it. Let's be honest, we claim we want to support public broadcasting, but we'd rather watch Shark Week.

Team Penske driver Will Power is still a little disappointed about not winning the Grand Prix of Sonoma last weekend, but his energy level picks up when he hears the magic word. Baltimore. "That [Baltimore] race, it was like a Formula One race," he said, his blue eyes wide open. "You know we worried about coming here, a first-time event. But the crowd was awesome. It was a party atmosphere in the paddock and everyone left saying, 'Why didn't we come here years ago?' "For me, being on that podium after we won, with all the people - it was the best ceremony I've had in my career.

The controversy surrounding Sunday's pit road collision at the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma between race leader Scott Dixon's car and a tire being carried by one of Will Power's crew members followed the IZOD IndyCar Series across the country from California to Maryland. But with a rule change announced Friday, the controversy will likely not resurface in Baltimore on Sunday or, officials and drivers hope, any time soon. In the case of the Grand Prix of Baltimore - and for the other three races remaining in the open-wheel season - pit box lines will be clearly drawn.

There was a time, not long ago, when red zinfandel -- the only kind that matters -- had few pretensions. It was just a hearty California red wine that cost less and was ready to drink earlier than cabernet sauvignon.But zinfandel has gone uptown in a big way. Once it was commonplace to find excellent zins for under $10. Now it could require the services of a Sam Spade to find such a wine. Many producers whose wines sold for $10-$12 a few years ago are now flirting with $20.At these prices, you have every reason to be picky.

SONOMA, Calif. - Michael Bilger, chef at the tony Restaurant Caneros, has it on his Christmas menu: "Seared foie gras with persimmon bread pudding and pomegranate gastrique." Carlo-Alessandro Cavallo, owner and chef at the celebrated Sonoma Meritage restaurant, likes to serve his foie gras northern Italian-style, wrapped in ravioli and drenched in a white truffle butter-and-sage sauce. Both chefs were steamed this month when animal-rights advocates presented the Sonoma City Council with a petition to ban the sale of foie gras in this California capital of wine and haute cuisine.

From: Sonoma County, Calif. Price: $18 Serve with: Barbecued ribs, spicy pasta Not for the faint of palate, this well-made Gallo product is a big red wine with a heady alcohol level but even more fruit. It boasts lush, ripe flavors of blackberry, wild berries and chocolate — kind of like a vintage port without the sweetness. It's a real mouthful that stacks up well against more exalted names. — Michael Dresser 2008 Rancho Zabaco Sonoma Heritage Vines Zinfandel From: Sonoma County, Calif.

2000 Geyser Peak Chardonnay, Sonoma County ($12). Just when I was about to swear off California chardonnay, along comes this superb value from the highly reliable Geyser Peak winery. The Geyser Peak winemaking team seems to grasp the notion that fruit, rather than oak, is the point of a wine. Lush flavors of apple, lemon, tropical fruit, nuts and melon predominate - without going over the top. The oak influence is subtle, and the wine finishes with crisp, refreshing acidity. In terms of complexity, it blows away many a $20 California chardonnay.

This unfiltered, barrel-fermented sauvignon blanc packs a lot of complexity and flavor into one very reasonably priced dry white wine. You can find nuances of pear, peach, honey, nuts, sweet oak and herbs in a wine soft-textured wine with a long, satisfying finish. It's as weighty as most chardonnays, but will complement a wider range of foods.

Larry M. Wolf, a talent scout for emerging retail businesses during his many years as a top Rouse Co. leasing executive who also discovered that pushcarts added profits and atmosphere to shopping malls, died of pancreatic cancer Thursday at his Naples, Fla., home. The North Baltimore resident was 72. "Larry was always on the prowl for a new and different merchant," said Mathias J. DeVito, who was chief executive officer of the development firm from 1973 to 1984. "He had merchandising at his fingertips, and he took chances with people who were new in their field."
