Producer Notes: "Everything is Everything. It’s a phrase we first heard from Lauryn Hill, and one that’s come to gain greater meaning for us in a post-pandemic world. We interpret it as consciously accepting, adapting to, and thriving in one’s situation, with an attitude that it will work out in the end, no matter how much turmoil you’re going through.
Often in winemaking, there will be a barrel that just doesn’t quite work for its intended home. It has sharp elbows in some fashion and is therefore held back from a final blend. We’ve long desired to craft a wine where these barrels can find harmony together--a wine intended to be popped on a weeknight and guzzled with abandon. This style was perfected by Sean Thackrey with his Pleiades blend, and this is our homage to one of our winemaking heroes." - Cameron and Marlen Porter
