2013 The Philosopher
I drink, therefore I am. The Philosopher delivers existential certainty in every glass. Classic Cabernet aromas of black cherry, plum, and violets, along with toffee, anise and hints of soy. Mouth-filling palate with ripe cherry, vanilla, cigar box and a bit of graphite. Nicely balanced acidity in a full-bodied wine, with well-integrated tannins. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah and Syrah. Wine making theories both traditional and modern unite in a bottle that celebrates life, beauty and the pursuit of imbibification.
Naturally, we encountered more questions than answers when it came to creating a label for The Philosopher. Our winemaker, convinced that the wine speaks for itself, advocated for no label at all. Well that isn't legal, so we set off in search of an artistic solution to our existential dilemma. We discovered an intriguing algorithm, one that generated meandering patterns with no end, matching question for question the deep genius of this wine. To complete our quest we turned to our favorite philosophers, gleaned data from their life histories, and merged it with our algorithm. The resulting art reveals the mysteries of truth and beauty captured by The Philosopher.
