Psst… Remarkable Pinot by SF Chronicle’s FIRST EVER FEMALE EMPLOYEE

Being regarded as a pioneer in her field was business as usual for Nan McEvoy. Her grandfather, Michael De Young (as in the The Young’s Museum), founded the San Francisco Chronicle in 1865 and Nan started there as a cub reporter (a rare position for a female at the time), gradually working her way up and eventually serving as Chairwoman of the Board from 1981 to 1995. When a director’s bylaw forced her into retirement at age 72, Nan set about doing what she does best—making things happen—and McEvoy Ranch was born. Always an activist with a spirit of adventure, she was an early member of the Peace Corps and John D. Rockefeller’s Population Council. Nan was named Food Artisan of the Year by Bon Appetit in 2003. Nan passed away in March 2015 at the age of 95, and the reins of McEvoy Ranch have since been taken into the very capable hands of her son Nion.

The 2013 McEvoy Pinot Noir “Evening Standard” is a wine of elegance and structure — a cool-climate coastal wine with a balanced, old-world style that embodies the pioneering spirit of Nan Tucker McEvoy. This vintage is brilliant ruby in color, with aromas of cherry, pomegranate and cranberry, along with notes of black plum, rose and a touch of anise. It’s full in body and lively in the mouth with flavors of complex red and black stone fruits, and anise, with additional savory notes and a slight touch of minerality. Ready to drink now and capable of aging many years.
