Volume 2 Release - Fall 2018

Lightworks is Merlot crafted using the solera method.  Inspired by the works of sampling pioneer J Dilla, particularly his album Donuts, we think of this wine as an infinite loop, eliminating vintage to express a picture of site removed from time. This is mostly 2016, along with 15% 2015 and 1% 2014.
