Recently we met with Pat Henderson, Chief Winemaker at Kenwood Vineyards in Sonoma to taste through some vintages of the Artist Series, the winery’s portfolio of carefully blended Cabernet Sauvignon produced from the very best vineyards in Sonoma County. Every picture tells a story as does the vintage in the bottle. Pat shared anecdotes and aging information with equal finesse as we sipped.
A veteran of more than 30 vintages, Pat worked at five wineries including a summer with Kenwood Vineyards as enologist in 1983. After earning his degree in viticulture and enology, he worked in both the Napa and Sonoma valleys before taking his first position as head winemaker in Washington State. Pat rejoined the Kenwood team in 2003 where under the mentorship of Mike Lee, the original Kenwood winemaker, he learned the art of small-lot winemaking. In 2015 Pat became chief winemaker.
