2017 Rage Against the Machine
An aromatic assault growing louder as it stands in the glass. A blend pushing the limits with noted tamarind, tropical flowers, leather and mint chocolate chip back by full, firm, ripe tannins. The Wineifesto of our era. This wine is to be danced to. Read aloud. Studied. Memorized. Debated. Burned. Swallowed. Eaten.

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.
