Amassed from multiple vineyard blocks and clones, this wine has a timeless beauty that can be inherently understood by innate human nature. Wines of this stature, much like great art, reflect the complex and compelling relationship between humanity and Earth. Expressing autumn, ­ (The Sum) leads with blueberries and blackberries on the front end of the palate followed by cranberry and a middle eastern spice medley, melting into dark plum and cocoa powder on the finish. 40% whole-cluster fermentation bolsters the wine, sustaining the tannic imprint and lingering as a sort of familiar, can’t-quite-place-it ambient noise.
