Description

My grandfather’s career as a commercial artist took him south to the City of Angels and fueled what was already a quirky and steady campaign of San Rafael-bound flirtations to one Ellen Redding at 309 5th Avenue. He illustrated “A Fond Remembrance,” of the night a bunch of Regular Fellows tendered him a dinner at the Fior de Italia prior to his departure for Los Angeles.

VINEYARDS

McEvoy Ranch: Located 30 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge in the rolling hills of Marin County, McEvoy Ranch is a 550-acre certified organic ranch that remains committed to sustainable farming practices since it was originally founded in 1990. The ranch is fully certified by the CCOF, and it is the standard for sustainable, full-circle eco-farming in Marin County. The western edge of the Petaluma Gap AVA provides for even ripening, concentration, and incredible balance- McEvoy Ranch is no exception. The site is incredibly diverse; Syrah, Alicante, Grenache, Pinot Noir and Montepulciano all thrive here, and several varietals are interplanted between the rows of the vast olive tree orchards.

Pacheco Ranch: The Pacheco Ranch Vineyard is located 20 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Novato, California. This vineyard is unique for several reasons: Herb Rowland is the 7th generation shepherd of this site, and it stands today as the oldest continuously-farmed-by-one-family spot of dirt in the State of California. The terraced hillside Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards range in age from 25 to 50 years old. And while most Marin County vineyards benefit from the cooling influence of the Pacific, Pacheco Ranch is the most easterly vineyard site in the county and it shares the same exact climate as the iconic Rutherford AVA in the Napa Valley.

Lewis Ranches: Jim Lewis is directly responsible for 20 acres of impeccably farmed Primitivo in Victor, California. This is located in the historic growing region of the Mokelumne River AVA in Lodi, where deeply-rooted, sandy riverbed soils have fertilized this grape growing hot spot since well before the California Gold Rush. The evenly-manicured canopy provides plenty of cover for the small and densely-clustered berries to ripen evenly throughout the relatively long growing season- while most old vine zinfandel sites in this area harvest in late August to mid-September, Jim Lewis attains perfect ripeness by mid-October every year.

FERMENTATION

Whole cluster pressed and cold settled in stainless steel. Stainless steel fermentation, followed by 9 months in neutral French oak barrels. 1/3 malolactic fermentation.

TASTING NOTES

Deeply concentrated, completely exotic, mediterranean by nature, inky and saturated but light on its feet, black licorice, anise, Christmas wreath, blackberry bramble, and wild sea air.
