Our goal is to make a wine that appears effortless – easy drinking, relaxing – but in reality is quite complex. Producing a proprietary blend like Evolution is a combination of art and science. Winemaker Emeritus Russ Rosner says, “In over twenty years of winemaking this is by far the hardest wine I’ve had to make. It’s like mixing nine different colors of paint and trying to end up with a rainbow instead of a muddy brown.” Winemaker Alex Sokol Blosser continues the tradition of Evolution Lucky No. 9 – making it easyto-drink and food-friendly – through careful selection of quality fruit and blending together with the winemaking team.
