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 briar patch, lightly roasted coee and grandmother’s perfume on the nose, with Nutella, choke cherry and fennel bulb flavors. Driving tight acidity rings like a tuning fork through this wine that is shaped like a wide brimmed hat. 50% whole-cluster fermentation bolsters the wine, sustaining the tannic imprint and crunchy texture, like dry autumn leaves, lingering as a sort of familiar, can’t-quite-place-it ambient noise.
