Description

Countless were the musings and illustrations from my grandfather, the Artist to my grandmother, the Country Girl. And when his career took him south to Los Angeles in 1926, the common thread of all works and formal flirtations became one of motion and travel, to and from one another. His artful campaign was steady, quirky, and led to their wedding on August 9th, 1928 at St. Mary’s Church in Nicasio, California.

VINEYARD

The Pacheco Ranch Vineyard is located in Novato, California, and is home to the descendants of Juan Ygnacio Antonio Pacheco. Born in 1808, Pacheco enlisted with the Mexican Army at age 19 and served at The Presidio of San Francisco his entire service. By 1837, he had been promoted to Sergeant and soon after retired from the Mexican Army. Hs request for a land grant in exchange for his faithful service was awarded with Rancho Agua Caliente- what is today known as Kenwood, north of town of Sonoma. After further inspection, ironically, he did not find this area suitable for agriculture. He preferred the climate and agricultural possibilities in Marin County, and so was awarded the much larger, 6,600 acres, Rancho San Jose in what is now the majority of South Novato. Pacheco watched California evolve from a Spanish province to becoming part of the Mexican Republic in 1822. In 1846, Mexico’s rule over California ended, and by 1849 California and the San Francisco Bay Area was in the throes of the great California Gold Rush. 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.

FERMENTATION

Fermented in small stainless steel tanks and transferred to French oak barrels, 20 percent of which were new. Aged for 18 months prior to bottling.

TASTING NOTES

Bright, savory, supple, with dark red cherry, compote, tree bark, sage brush and saddle leather. The wine opens beautifully to reveal authentic Cabernet Sauvignon flavors, with a very supple mouthfeel and incredibly soft and subtle tannins.
